    Trees - the fantasy and the reality

    "Too many people also tend to see wood as better than oil or coal because the amount of CO₂ produced by burning a given unit is much lower for wood. But this overlooks the fact that you get considerably more heat from burning a unit of oil or coal than from wood. In other words, you have to burn...

    How are you going to regas your system ? Legally the old gas should be sucked out before you disconnect any component.

    Ineos Grenadier

    If you watch the "building the Grenadier" videos you will see off road performance is not compromised - proven BMW engines , ZF gear boxes , Magna Steyr beam axles, galvanised ladder frame chassis etc.....Vehicles like this should be designed by engineers not accountants.

    Rising surface temperatures

    The Grand Solar Minimum is also delaying planting across the Dakotas, too. “The weather has been a little bit strange,” said Paul Thomas, a farmer in north-central North Dakota. “We were looking at a really early spring. In fact, we actually had our drill hooked up, ready to sow seed [in...

    Philmac poly liner

    I avoid using them on the rising main - whats the point in spending extra money for a 50mm pipe if you're going to reduce it down to 40mm on every joint.... I even use over size gate valves and Ts , so there is less resistance caused by bulky plastic fittings.

    Alarming aspirations from latest climate report...

    The video says it would take 300 years , to double , at current increments. I don't know if the different isotopes of Carbon( C12,C13,C14 etc) cause different amounts of warming , but we all know methane from ruminants hasn't changed much over the years.

    Alarming aspirations from latest climate report...

    The relevant bit of the video, to this thread (4.08 to 10min), is that doubling of methane , would only result in a rise of 0.012 degrees Celsius.

    Alarming aspirations from latest climate report...

    Climate science 101 with David Siegel - YouTube Have a watch of this video. The first ten minutes explain that water vapour is responsible for 75% of the green house effect , and although CO2 and Methane are powerful greenhouse gasses, their effect dimminishes as concentrations increase , due...
