    really..lets be honest who even gives a monkeys about the club world cup?

    Indeed  it's s joke of a competition   same as super cup   and the charity shield  just an inconvineance 

     


  2. Thinking of renaming this thread!.  The rebellion are at it again.  Yesterday there plan was to highlight the effect fashion  has on the environment      Blockades were erected  demonstrations a plenty. Even a fashion show including a catwalk.  You may think it would have been difficult to navigate  around the plush areas of Milan.Paris London.   But no, The streets and roads were perfectly fine.    one can only assume there was a problem with there Sat Navs     because as Parisians enjoyed a lovely Sunday afternoon in the sun.  Disgruntled People from BRISTOL were not as fortunate.

  3. Very similar  to headinthesandism   its a common problem mainly in the left wing middle classes.   symptoms given off are often of superiority and are under the illusion that there ideas will work.    people who suffer often compare their symptoms  to being  pi$$ed on Moet.       Symptoms  vary in length but often last to just beyond the world burns.

    Would you like to enlighten us please weirpig?

    I do not know enough about the level of atmospheric mixing aircraft create (through the full depth of the atmosphere) nor do I know the full impacts of condensation trials on surface temps?

    I haven't the faintest notion of how close aircraft fly to (or above) the tropopause on near arctic overflys nor the impacts of unused fuel from the engines esp. at height with the chemical interactions such complex hydrocarbons will have esp. on Ozone?

    As for my personal take on the 3rd runway?

    It is exactly the same as my take on the tory pushing for fracking in the UK.

    It will not be my pocket that feels the benefit but I will suffer the consequences along with the rest of us?

    My point   and its one i keep making   They are targeting Heathrow  because of another runway  yet totally ignore the fact that   China has now just completed the biggest airport in the world  20 miles away from the second biggest airport in the world.  But no protests  no blockades  no drones.   and yet one of their lead members is a chinese national. YEN CHIT CHONG       Its akin to being against Horse racing  but ignoring the grand national  and protesting at Great Yarmouth.

    Again i give up.  and you are supposed to believe in this stuff   you actually think the UK  is a major player?.  Jeez and i am a nationalist     if western countries speed up other will follow.   I admire your optimism   but dont be surprised if you are struggling to keep your head above water whilst muttering i was wrong. 

    edit  why i didnt mention USA  was because the replies were to the article posted above

    You do what you can...

    What do you do? Have you been to China to protest and if not why not?

    Isn't China a big polluter because people elsewhere buy it's products? So, isn't there another way???

     

    I dont protest  because i dont believe the experts. For me it  is already  too late  geo eng  is the only way    However the rebel crowd  still think there is time to do something    but hand on heart  faffing about in this country stopping traffic and holding a protest at a museum will not help anything.   

    In regard to China  and buying products from elsewhere.  According to the experts we have only a few years.  can you imagine the public or any governments  ours included  sourcing products from anywhere else.   Where would we source it from?  Our own country?. not a chance  abroad?.  but where the USA?. just as bad as china     there just is not enough time.  Hey but at least  we are safe in the knowledge that our government is banning plastic straws  and bringing in limited thermostats for our homes.    I agree  that things need to be done   but where you and i disagree is how we do it

    I suspect if they did 'go over there' you'd be criticising them for all the CO2 they were responsible for in getting there. Criticism delivered from a computer chair is a 'heads I win, tails you lose' kinda thing...

    Unbelievable  i blame folks like you for the situation we are in.   As you know   We have very limited time.  focusing on a small nation with some of the best climate regs in the world wont stop anything.  If all of these protest groups think like you  then no wonder the world is doomed.   A quick example.   If you were a small child  and you were living in fear from a Bully,  A large vile individual Who would like nothing more than to ruin your life.  He is surrounded by a group of other bullies  however these bullies vary in nastiness..     You have only one opportunity to stop him from ending your life what do you do?.   Do you pick on one of the other less nasty bullies and hope to defeat him thus in turn converting the bully  and stopping him from hurting you. Or do you confront the main bully head on knowing full well you defeat him you are safe.     One chance  one battle before  time is up.  What do you do.     If you pick the former you are a fool. and that is exactly what these protesters are doing.  

    Edit just seen the likes for your post   my god the world is finished

    Protesting has actually become much more common in China during the 2010s and the environment / climate change is now the main cause of protest.

    https://lithub.com/can-environmental-activism-succeed-in-china/

    If people protested in that area of the world during earlier years people would face punishments for it that are much harsher then ours. They didn't have the rights that we do. The Chinese government say they are trying to tackle climate change and improve air quality but they clearly aren't doing enough....

    Lets hope this source of CFCs gets eliminated ASAP because the Ozone hole was steadily recovering.

    Thats my point!     It was and still is to a certain extent frowned upon   and harshly punished  Thats why you dont see the Rebel crew out there.  Virtual signalling weasels.  The  main contribution to climate change is China  solve that you go a huge way to solving the problem   But guess what  they wont go and protest over there because of the punishment they may get.  And yet you hear the same waffle from them when interviewed "  im willing to sacrifice my liberty for the earth"   rubbish

    wish we had redeveloped the Boleyn Ground and not moved to the London Stadium

    I went to the London stadium this year   it was impressive  however for me it certainly isnt a football stadium    I suppose it was about saving money.

    Jonathan Woodgate seems to be getting mentioned the most. A journo from the beeb said we were looking at coaches in Holland but the local paper said that's not the case

    Its always a big leap of faith  going down the foreign route in the championship   Woodgate would not be a bad shout    a young hungry ex player      It seems to be the way to go at the moment  what with Lampard and Gerrard

    Delph??  what about Maddison?.  why is Lingard still in      No Luke Shaw which im a little surprised at   Also i thought Wan Bissaka  might have got a chance ahead of Trippier    Also call me biased  but i think Cody has had a better season than Stones and Keane. 


  13. A man (sorry Trans)   consultant to the police    beats up a 16 year old girl  with a hammer  but the police are treating it as a female on female violence.    21st century uk folks 

     


  14. Impression of the development at the Wolves ground which sees work to be carried out at the end of next season.   single tier  south bank   It may not be as flash as spurs Ed Stone
