More traffic strangeness on nevill road. Waiting at the prison cross road lights to go down Winterbourne Hollow: I was surprised to see a car pass me on the pavement. WONDERING WHAT HE WOULD DO aT THE END I WAS FURtHEr SURPRISED TO SEE HIM HIT THE TRAFFIC LIGHT (CAPital malfunction) and turn upside down. People are riding roughshod over the highway code these days, whatever next? Is the Cerne Collider opening a portal in the space time continuum or what, strange days indeed.

A very interesting statement from the prime minister the other day- the jab does not stop you catching the disease and it doesn't stop you infecting others. That's not a vaccination in the traditional meaning of the word. It lessens the symptoms that's all. Wouldn't that make you more dangerous as a spreader? I mean- if you're really ill, you don't go out, do you? You can't! Can anyone make any sense of this?

Thanks TP for finally providing a source i can at least find. Not sure how it either undermines what we know today, and also not sure if it even confirms your own original claim. Its still accurate to say trees havent been growing within the arctic circle for millions of years and this particular piece of research doesnt contradict that. I was hoping for some controversial evidence that makes me re-think about this issue on climate, but it really didnt. It may have knocked your confidence on man made climate change, but it didnt for me, nor the actual scientists who will be much more familiar with this than we are.

Its not controversial, just one of many small details that show climate change is perpetual and hardly affected by mammalian species, no matter how self important they are. It's not a lurid headline to blaze you and get you all worked up like a spoiled,attention seeking Swedish teenager cleverly manipulated by global business interests. Talking about lurid headlines, how about the LATEST VARIANT, the pestilence of the NOTORIOUS GANG OF FOUR from Botswana. Get your hazmat suit out, be afraid, be very afraid. Four men, fully vaccinated, out of the 6% in the country who are, have got IT. According to the official Botswana government statement, that is. You won't see that in the Gates and government funded Retardian propaganda rag. It must be amusing to coincidence theorists that the variant is an anagram of MORONIC and the coincidence that it evolved in the vaccinated 6% minority, nothing to see there eh, hurry along, don't rock the boat, keep complying.

We know climate changes for various reasons, but we also know billions of humans (and billions more intensively factory farmed animals) creates problems for the environment, including excess co2. Its not just burning fossil fuels, its destroying large swathes of forests that typically help absorb it.
We may be just mammals, but we have unfortunately been irresponsible with the planet. People like Greta Thunberg are pointing this out and some are choosing to ignore it or undermine her, even though she is only relaying information from scientists. Theres been a lot of hate for a young child who isnt advocating violence or war.
As for the new covid variant, i read that it evolved and mutated mainly in those with weak immunity. Which means those unvaccinated or those with compromised immune systems (such as people with HIV, sadly too common in those countries still). Cases in the UK will rise, and once again those that end up in ICU and on ventilators will be overwhelmingly and disproportionately those who think the vaccines are evil and part of some 5g conspiracy and in their wisdom decided to abstain.

Er, proof? So 94% of Botswanans have aids? 5G conspiracy, youve just made one up, you theorist you. By the way,there were forests growing in the arctic 4.000 years ago not millions as you misleadingly state, you crafty one!

94%? Where did you get that from. It appears to be a quarter of the adult population though in Botswana have HIV, so not an insignificant number!
I'm sure you have mentioned about 5g and trees (speaking of forests) on a thread here a while back. Perhaps you have come to your senses, although I doubt it.
No, there were no forests 4000 years ago, at least not within the arctic circle. You will need to add a few more noughts to the year. The research piece you shared didn't say there were forests in the arctic circle 4,000 years ago either. You have misinterpreted (deliberately or ignorantly) the study.

Another study I suggest you ignore is the Greenland Ice Sheet Project. If you were to look at that even your magic spectacles would contradict your brainwashing and inability to distinguish between thousands and millions. Don't go near it without a portable sensory deprivation chamber.

Just save me the bother and explain how this undermines current scientific consensus on climate change. Your previous recommended study didn't do that, I'm not optimistic this will blow away my current belief in those evil scientists.
