  1. bovine diapers with tubes attached, capture the gas, pipe it to parliament to heat the politicians. how green would that be with the added plus of making the place more aromatic

  2. “One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.”
    ― Carl Sagan

    This will keep going and going and going they have been on the offensive the last week or two on tv iv noticed always how we will lose 75% of all animals everywhere in 100 years so no one needs be responsible for their lies ….we are all punished because the mouth breathing idiots can vote and they need to feeeeeeeeeeel like they are helping the polar bears and if the media and scientists say it from their pulpits it must be correct ! its quite masterful on behalf of the religious zealots pushing this voluntary economic suicide for blessed giga but then followers have always been paying for their church and forcing others to do so or convert. 

    • No, it's bad.

      Apparently there were 9,000 polar bears alive when Al Gore was born and now there are only 30,000.

      • Good Grief, but I had no idea it was that bad.  There are only 30,000 left out of the original 9,000? We must do something AT ONCE!

  3. By 2030 turf from Irish bogs will no longer be for sale and presumably turf as a combustible commodity will be banned. That leaves a lot of spare bogland, including bogland which already has been fully harvested. If we were the Dutch or the Chinese we would be planning to colonise the empty bogs – with people and with factories. In a previous post I suggested that Ireland collects and makes use of the cow dung being expelled from the millions of cattle (and sheep and horses) around the countryside. Giant methane digesters could be built on the Bog of Allen and elsewhere and the raw animal waste used for the generating of methane gas. Like the Dutch we could also organise the establishment of glass houses and polytunnels for production of vegetables and flours. We have got to mix protection of the environment with practical production of food and power.

    • With all due respect Ger, that sounds like a lot of commonsense and practicality.  We generally don't encourage those around here.

      • But we do always encourage you, Grandad, for your commonsense and practicality, and your robust analysis of humbug. BTW I should have spelled the word 'flowers' above, although if Bord na Mona wants to build methane-powered flour mills on the Bog of Allen I won't flatuently object.

          • To be honest, I misspell so many words myself these days that I no longer notice my, or anyone else's mistakes.  Put it down to a bad and constant case of mental flatulence.
