Massive study concludes: 'Global warming is real'


You're missing the point

Nobody is arguing that there is warming. It's the AMOUNT and the CAUSE that's the major debate.

So this study PROVES NOTHING. And you are reporting on the early draft!

"About" 1c since 1950 is KNOWN. If we face another 0.5c over the next 50-100 years... SO WHAT!

It's not worth wrecking the world trying to fix a problem that will have such a relatively small effect. Because while some areas will face higher temperatures, new areas will have rain and cooling.

So just as "snow" is jumped on by climate skeptics, so is a "straw man argument" leapt upon by zealots ..... and the world keeps turning and so on and so forth.

Android version what?

Love how they are posting the firmware version as the Android version because they just don't know any better. Looks like a re-bodied Eken or APad... In other words Android 1.5 and DOWN to the usual standard.

I don't care if it is £85, it's still rubbish. :-)

Alternative sources of diesel

The other thing about "diesel" is that it can be sourced from other sources other then crude oil.

So it's quite possible to mix and match sources to compliment the source and used in conventional engines.

That's so long as you believe that oil is a finite resource of course ;-)

UK.gov fishes for ID ideas

Big Brother

Look at the new boss, same as the old boss

So they scrapped the rather obvious big brother style "ID Card" and are now tendering for something a little more subtle. Nice move Camleg.

Speculation swells as Apple event draws near


Didn't you notice?

Hey, Reg. didn't you notice the number of "refurb" deals on the current iPod Nano on practically EVERY SINGLE Apple store. UK, US, France, Germany, Japan, Swiss. Go look.

Same goes for the iPod Classic and in some places iPod touch.

If I was a betting man, I'd suggest they are flogging old stock to make way for the new iPod Nano. That would be my guess.
