The Seas, Oceans and Forests as CO2 Sinks.

Trees are pretty benign species as far as animals go unless a large one falls on one or a lot catch fire. For other plants they are a nightmare, very little growing in their vicinity as the ‘kings of the forest’ grab all the nutrients around them for themselves, leaving little left over for their […]

Gold

Gold is heavy for its size, so high value can be transported personally, relatively inert, can be manipulated easily, conducts electricity nearly as good as copper, silver being best. so is used to protect other metals that it covers closely. It can have compounds, but they are rare, so doesn’t need refining. Gold doesn’t tarnish […]

Does Altruism Exist?

I’m a great believer in science, and never subscribed to the idea that things just happen at random. Things happen, but I’ve never come across one thing that didn’t have a cause where it can be measured, so the idea that just because something happens and you can’t measure it, it doesn’t suggest that random […]

Is the Earth Subterraneanally Banded Like Jupiter?

Nobody still knows what goes on beneath our feet. Underneath us we have a crust that is 3-6 miles deep under the oceans, so there is probably a lot more volcanic action going on under the sea than we can see on land by a very large degree. Under the continents it is about 20-30 […]

Cats

Monday’s cat sits on your face Tuesday’s cat is up for the chase.     Wednesday’s cat is a tail of woe,     Thursday’s cat has another home to go.     Friday’s cat is always mouse giving,     Saturday’s cat makes you work hard for its living.     And the cat born on the Sabbath day […]

Evolution is Happening all the time

We are what we eat. Evolution is one of those things where the implications are not really realised, as it is a continually ongoing process. Humans up until recently had an omnivorous diet, so we can eat most things within reason. More specialised animals eat particular things, some backing themselves into a dead and end […]

A Few of my Drawings

I’ve decided to subject everybody to some of my drawings that I did at theBishop’s Palace. Pigeons have taken over as my favourite bird, the previous being parrots,but I find I do tend to find a lot of time feeding them lately when I need totry get my thoughts into order. It’s very worrying times, […]

State of the World

We live in an era of fear. Every day we are being bombarded by figures that suggest the game is nearly over, and the people doing it are pretty much out of control now, and sponsored by media, education and governments. If you look at the data provided by NOAA it is as below: The […]

Fracking and Falling Resources

Probably shale oil extraction is going to be the only way the world can survive in its current form. I remember discussing shale oil extraction with my economics teacher nearly 50 years ago, and he was of the opinion that it would never become viable because of the cost. Due to the last 50 years […]

Scale of the Electric car problem

The UK has 40 million cars, vans, trucks and buses and the world has about 1 billion. Each car if electric and powered by lithium batteries would use on average about 200Kg of refined lithium, so that comes to about 8 million tonnes of it for the UK. The world production of lithium is about […]
