    Mouse plague in Aus....... what a mess.

    OK. I shall rephrase that to "give advice to those that have".

    The great global warming scam, worth a listen I think.

    I agree with you that temperatures are rising. I am not disputing past long term fluctuations in temperature. Why would I ask your opinion on the accuracy of fortune tellers? You know from my posts that I have consistently said nobody can tell the future, so why do you post as if I have...

    The great global warming scam, worth a listen I think.

    What evidence do you want? Temperature records are all there is to use to determine whether or not temperatures are rising. The thread is about "global warming". I do not bleat. The majority of my posts have been correcting misinformation by Banjo, who has repeatedly posted links that do not...

    The great global warming scam, worth a listen I think.

    So? What is your point in that comment? Are you saying that a rising temperature in many thousands of weather station records around the world that show an increase in temperature do not constitute a global climate record? As I have asked everyone who denies temperatures have been rising for...

    The great global warming scam, worth a listen I think.

    Thanks for your good luck message. As I have posted elsewhere, Kirkwall has a higher annual mean than Inverness, and we were a few hundred feet higher on the Black Isle before we came here. I do not know where you are in the Borders, but the chances are you have a worse winter than all of the...

    The great global warming scam, worth a listen I think.

    Yes it is only the 6th. Nothing unusual about snow that far north at this time of year. Have you ever been to Slochd? I have recently told you that snow at this time of year is not unusual. Why do you persist in failing to learn? Here is a quote from...

    The great global warming scam, worth a listen I think.

    No promises on the temperature, but I might need you to help me flit if you can do it. I have a couple of feelers out already and they have first go. I need to move out around about the 23rd. Very short notice but I received an offer I could not refuse. Everything will be packed in solid...

    The great global warming scam, worth a listen I think.

    Why do you fail to learn from being corrected about past errors? The chart you showed ended in March. April is not shown. For the benefit of others, because I know you do not read what I post (otherwise you would not repeat your errors) April here happened to be the warmest for a few years. You...

    Mouse plague in Aus....... what a mess.

    Those who have not farmed through a mouse or locust plague really should not comment on them. It is a rather bad experience.

    It's probably too late, UK will soon be a totalitarian puppet.

    That is a rather silly statement to make. We all disagree with many things that occur in the country where we live, or in the wider world, but you feel so strongly about what you perceive to be the abysmal state of things in the UK that you decided to post here about it. You are not...

    It's probably too late, UK will soon be a totalitarian puppet.

    If you think it is that bad then you simply must move to another country where you will feel happier. There is no alternative. You only have the one life. Do not claim you cannot. It is easy. I am retiring in a couple of weeks and moving back to the UK by choice. Over the last 50 years my wife...

    Can you sell a farm?

    Spot on, Henarar. I repeat what I just posted on the politics thread: Portugal is colder, and Orkney not as cold as many folks think. We are not far from the ski lifts here. I suppose some folks would not be aware that Portugal has ski lifts. Orkney did have snow earlier this year, it happens...

    We are leaving the EU

    Portugal is colder, and Orkney not as cold as many folks think. We are not far from the ski lifts here. I suppose some folks would not be aware that Portugal has ski lifts. Orkney did have snow earlier this year, it happens. Being small islands surrounded by sea, the mean temperature in Kirkwall...

    We are leaving the EU

    My wife and I that is. We never wanted to be part of it,and voted against it in the first referendum as well as the second, but 18 years ago we felt we needed to live somewhere warmer. I was castigated for living in Portugal during the lead up to Brexit, but, whilst I refused to go into detail...

    We changed our minds. Heading for Orkney.
