Agreed!

At least this fire was in a building with a concrete (?) floor slab, so the subsoil may not have to be treated as "contaminated waste" as a result of all terrible toxins that could not be sold at a profit, recycled or landfilled before the fire.

Wolf Blitzer? I always wondered if it's a show biz name .... back in the day watching him from afar and having him describe what was purportedly going on around me - I made an early 1990s judgement of "fake news" - it's mildly amazing that he's still there.... - must have shares / nowhere else to go.

In other news - I'm seeing more people having their Google account arbitrarily suspended - if Mountain View continue down the path they seem to have started on - The Daily Telegraph is going to have to find a new IT system.... The sort of people behind this sort of thing are likely unconcerned on the basis of Alphabet's share price and Google's advertising profits - if they deliberately attack free speech - this punter is moving his assets and business.... Already made the jump to another search engine and looking at browser alternatives to Google's version of Chrome.

Pointman is on the case.....

gc if it follows the pattern of some of the previous fires, the company will go bankrupt and the council will faff for 3-10 years before moving the stuff to landfill.

R5 now is covering the North Pole sail
They say they are in the zone, but don't expect to see ice for 2 days.
He claims they are the first yachts to ever sail more than 200miles from Arctic land
Presenter pointed out that at the actual North Pole it's full of ice
sailor says "we can work in ten tenths of ice cos it could be just slush, but we won't be doing that for safety".."we'll be sticking to open water"
"might risk 5 tenths, but that risks ice closing in on us"
They have no icebreaking capability.
He can't risk getting stuck cos his wedding is scheduled for 14 days after end of project.
"Expect first week of September to be furthest north"

9pm BBC2 tonight BBC accidentally insert another advert for green causes
"Adnan begins at the Quaid-E-Azam Solar Park, a
* hugely impressive solar farm covering 6,500 acres *
and part of a massive £35 billion investment programme in Pakistan by the Chinese.
Whilst this is going to go some way to solving the country's power shortage, it risks upsetting Pakistan's neighbours, who have a fractious relationship with China

That's hype, cos compared to a normal coal or gas station it's quite small
"Once fully completed by end of 2016 it will have capacity to generate 1,000 MW"
Output will be less than half that due to solar capacity factor

And they still haven't installed that 1,000MW yet Aug 17

Is it known what happens to the unburnt debris and wreckage after the fire is out?

Big fire in Bootle at a warehouse full of 'domestic waste'. By which they probably mean recycling.

It must be quite a little money earner. Hire a warehouse, pick up a contract to recycle plastics or paper. collect, collect, collect. Have an accidental fire. Collect on the insurance.

Sunday News

Pt 1 - The inconvenient truth
1. Batteries Impose Hidden Environmental Costs for Wind and Solar Power

"...a full spectrum of environmental factors makes solar power approximately equal to nuclear power, hydro power, and natural gas in terms of environmental impact. Wind power fares worse than solar, nuclear, hydro, and natural gas. The negative environmental impacts of battery storage will exacerbate the environmental impacts of wind and solar power.

Wind and solar power may someday become economically competitive with natural gas, nuclear power, and hydro power. That hasn’t happened yet..."

Pt 2 - The Lies
2. Media fixated on Trump, will blame him for everything

CNN's Wolf Blitzer and MSNBC saying the Barcelona terror attacks were inspired by Charlottesville: The media hates Trump so much, they will blame him for even a terror attack

Comment: rather like Leanne Wood saying ISIS is far/extreme right - this is Left's new meme. Muslim woman in MoS today said same. Soon BBC saying "far/extreme right ISIS"?


Pt 3 - Laugh & Cry
3. Only In Cali: New Bill Would Imprison Healthcare Workers For Using Incorrect Pronouns With Patients

California has a well-earned its reputation for introducing wacky legislation. Jerry Brown's bill specifically written to regulate cow farts is a personal favorite of ours...

...a new bill penned by Senator Scott Wiener of San Francisco, dubbed the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Long-Term Care Facility Resident’s Bill of Rights (or SB-219 if you're into the whole brevity thing), takes wacky California legislation to a whole new level. Among other things, the bill makes it illegal for employees of any "long-term care facility" to "willfully and repeatedly fail to use a resident’s preferred name or pronouns after being clearly informed of the preferred name or pronouns...

4. "First They Came For The Statues..."

...House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Cal) [yes, California again: Nutty Nancy, no doubt Baldy Warren is also having a tantrum] discovered that the United States Capitol building was infested with statues of Confederate dignitaries. Thirty years walking those marbled halls and she just noticed?
