We're all doomed. Might be worth buying a horse - or do they f@rt too much?
The slope is very slippery
Personal transport is bad, that's the gist of that article
I want some of the magic fairy dust that all the public transport vehicles use
It's not the gaseous emissions that was the issue...
Anyone got any roses?
What about all the claims when people fall over all the trailing electric cables lol
Talk about clutching at straws, I wish those loonies had seen the Skandi Texel leave our Harbour this morning. Thick thick black smoke that didn't go up into the stratosphere, it sank to ground level, or Sea level in this case !!. And they are worried about brakes and tyres
Iv never heard so much bullshit in my life.
Drax power station is built upon one of the largest coal reserves in Europe - miles to site pretty much nil
But Coal is bad
So convert to Biomass because that's good
Where can we get enough wood pellets from?
I know we'll ship them from Baton Rouge in Louisiana... (on MFO burning cargo ships)
Then send them from Liverpool to Drax on Diesel trains
The road to hell is paved with the moronic ideas of those who think they know what they're doing and think it's right for the planet
I'm going out now and going to convert some dead dinosaurs to fun just for S&G
Is that after you've been to M and C Blobcat?
Unfortunately not I had to cancel last nights and Monday's as my plans have changed and I'm not where I was expecting to be. Still variety is the spice of life and all that
Very interesting - so the motor car saved the polluted Cities
From the Government department for stating the blindingly obvious.....
"So while legislation has driven down emissions of particles from exhausts, the non-exhaust proportion of road traffic emissions has increased"
"They say the percentage of pollutants will get proportionally higher as vehicle exhausts are cleaned up more"
EVs will produce less than ICE cars as braking can be done regeneratively so pretty much only tyres there. Of course if we went to biodegradable materials for tyres it's a non issue. Maybe something like this:
Or for those who want something wider:
But you want to keep cutting down the valuable jungles for a replacement for tyres.
They should make tyres out of traffic wardens.
Aye, it would be good to see if there are enough to go around,
And yet on a hot Summers evening when everyone has windows open and enjoying the rear garden a dickhead neighbour is allowed to light a bonfire and smoke you out
Plastic situation is similar with recommendation not to wash polyester etc clothes as it puts plastic microfibres into the sea thus food chain .
And even bottled water containing more bacteria ( because it's not chlorine treated ) and plastic bits than tap water !
The goverment will remove speed humps, poor road surfaces and unecessary delays to reduce Brake and tyre wear.
Good old Selby Coalfield, happy memories
Scrubbers could be used to clean the emissions, but that adds a few pence per tonne and cheap brown coal is so much filthier and plentiful from the antipodes, hence closing Selby.
In Londinium when Red Ken put through Pt11 in the regs to use biomass in new builds inside the now LEZ to reduce emissions. Then someone pointed out the emissions to transport the biomass chips into Londinium, build sufficient on site storage to enable the boilers to keep working 24/7, then the acidic fallout from burning biomass, the storage of ash and subsequent transport by lorries out of Londinium and biomass wasn't continued as the only fuel allowed.
Cap volcanoes (apparently 1500 likely to erupt on the planet with 35 active at any one time, but that doesn't make headlines), tax avgas and build nuclear generation. Or in other words, grow a pair
Only just over 2 weeks till we burn lots of MFO as we cruise 4445miles around these islands and off to Iceland (not the frozen food shop) I'll ask the skipper how much pollution we make per person over a glass of white or three at a cocktail party
