UN Predicts 40 Percent Water Shortfall by 2030 IPS-Inter Press Service.
- Right in less than 14 years time the whole world will have on average less than 40% it needs.
Anyone want to see if Ladbrokes will take money against that happening ? Cos I don't think it'd gonna happen.

Tomo. So let me get this straight, you are not exactly enamoured of the nordic hoards , whose culture has vastly influenced our own with such varied offerings as smorgasbord, skal and troll?

The Scandinavians do seem to have more than might be considered a fair share of deluded and obsessive busybodies. The pompous and overbearing hurdy-durdy-hoo-dee-doo-dee on a religious / ideological mission is something to behold. Calvinism still has deep roots over there. There's some real religious whackos in Norway that we hear little about in English.

Quite depressingly the Swedish progressive education system has been turning out self awareness free ecological zealots for some time across most disciplines. In a number of instances I'm aware of - they get employed by companies whose primary business is services to the energy industries (mebbe 10% renewable...) and then the fekkers refuse to work on fossil fuel projects on moral grounds - while driving to work, taking Asian holidays and enjoying tons of plastics etcetera.... contempt is hardly adequate to describe what I think of them.

Frustratingly it's probably easier to get them assassinated than to remove them for non-performance with a local P45 equivalent. The utterly farcical gender tokenism is also making the Swedish workplace simply bonkers - in some cases it's clear that gender has been the sole selection criteria for a "promotion" to manager :-)

Stewgreen. I get my Guardian free from Waitrose, but I do choose it over other papers.

"The Mail on Sunday dominated the main accolades of the Society of Editors Press Awards – the ‘Oscars’ for the UK’s national newspapers.

The Mail on Sunday won seven awards including the coveted Newspaper of the Year title, Scoop of the Year, News Team of the Year, News Reporter of the Year for Guantanamo campaign reporter David Rose as well as sharing the Sports Team of the Year title with its sister title for MailSport."

"The paper also won Scoop of the Year for its exclusive ‘Blood Money’ investigation that revealed Thomas Cook had received around ten times the compensation awarded to the parents of two children.."

I don't buy it myself, but what kind of strange people actually put their own money into the hands of the Guardian, to use for more climate scare pornography ? (BTW I once did promotions work for the Guardian with their staff)

@Alan I see frequent almost daily praise of BBC progs here on BH
- I have never seen BH commenters gang up opposition commenters
..rather they have a high standard of integrity as do most warmist blogs.
..Although some alarmists might accuse skeptics blogs of such behaviour, that seems to me to be projection.
..An example of which is CiF

I didn't draw attention to this the other day, but the Doel 3 reactor had a blip out of action just as the Germans asked the Belgians to shut it and Tihange 3 down for fear of safety issues terrorist action - but even the Belgians are scared.

However, you do have to wonder whether it lies behind the drop of 1 GW in supply from the French interconnector to the UK. That grid margin looks just a little less secure...

Tomo
One of my longstanding adversaries (the one from whom I finally learnt what modern environmentalism is all about) was a Swede.
She was never off the phone either to me or our local Councillor about something she disapproved of, from youths kicking a ball outside her house (to wind her up mainly) to planned changes to her street (which would have more or less restored it to the way it would have been 20 years previously (and she complained about that change as well!).
She was a fanatic about the environment, so much so (!) that rather than walk to the local supermarket she would take two bus rides to get to Waitrose.
Which tells you all you need to know.
I'm not sure how she was on midges though!

Tomo. I hope there should have been a comma between opinion and slathered.
