    No, I'm looking after them for a fiend.

    No incisiveness anymore? You've been doing too much filing. Have a pink rinse.

    It doesn't bear thinking about, does it.

    However, when I worked in a residential care home (run by ultra-frugal nuns, I might add), one unlucky inmate was once served rice pudding containing the large and discoloured molar of another resident . This unfortunate person had slipped whilst wheeling in the dinner trolley, bashed her teeth againt the rice pudding 'trough', lost the molar into it, yet carried on manfully, hoping to avoid detection (in case she lost her job in the kitchens). It all came to light when one of the nuns in charge that lunchtime spotted the tooth - fished it out, interrogated the helper and established what had happened.

    Sister Xavier then ordered all the residents to continue eating the rice pudding, as 'it looked alright' to her.

    Back to ice creams then, and screwballs ?

    Did you catch that news item (?!) about the manager of one of the last Woolies branch to close, who managed (!) to grab the last bagful of pick-n-mix from his store, pay for it, resist the temptation to scoff the stuff, and finally flogged it last week on ebay. It raised £14,000 - or £70 per sweet.

    PS My favourite type of 'Pic'n'Mix used to be that nutty fudge - until my brother told me the 'nuts' were actually the teeth of the people who worked in the sweet factory.

    Very true, in terms of the planet (never mind the Universe) we are incredibly short lived, so we just can't grasp the enormous amounts of time involved.

    And it's not just going forward, we are short sighted looking back as well even when we have records*.

    If you consider the...

    I'd like to think I'm focused on the next 200 years or so.
    That seems to me to be a reasonable period to try and plan.

    200 years ago it was 1821 and the world was a completely different place, and (ignoring the odd flukey guess) I don't think anyone then could possibly have predicted...

    I'll get it off my chest - I'm fed-up of all the panic surrounding Global Warming / Climate Change.

    I'm more pi**ed off at the forced cost to us all - when it will mean absolutely nothing.

    Climate Change is real. Believe it or not, it's been happening for hundreds of millions...

    And that's where I'm going to bow out on this one.

    It doesn't really matter if we agree or not as none of us can change what's been decided and thankfully none of us will be around when things really go pear shaped.

    It will be several hundred (thousand?) generations of your...

    IF Australia refuses to give up on mining, burning and selling coal for instance, the easiest ways for them to fall into line are (a) do not trade with them (b) let them carry on and reap what they sow.

    IF the UK faces coastal flooding - address coastal flooding in the UK - heat pumps and...

    When you have 15 minutes, have a read of the link I added a few posts ago. It is certainly NOT denying the existence of Climate Change nor the need to take action.

    Geologists are able to see what happened tens of millions of years ago in some detail - and when you're talking about a 100...

    But you're talking about changing the behaviour of everyone on the planet and that's going to take time.
    And the changes are already happening, so we need to take some action to delay what may be inevitable, so we can make some adjustments.

    Right now there're are lots of people who...

    But that's the whole point - we should be focussing our energy and money on ADAPTING to live in these climates, because no matter how much we dislike it, the change IS going to happen.

    IF the Worlds population is growing too quickly, we need to address that too.

    But it's easier...

    I've answered everything that you said in your last post but the post has been held for approval, I suspect because I used the scientific binomial for humans.
    I'm not going to repeat anything (hopefully a moderator will eventually approve the post), apart from suggesting that you perhaps read...

    Why?

    Perhaps most obviously because the timescales for natural and anthropogenic climate change are completely different.
