  1. And deliberate falling birth rates mean there are not enough workers coming through to support current pensioner numbers The money is the workers own invested on their behalf. We know interest rated havent performed and a large amount of pension schemes invest in oil and petrol Not when you consider the trade off appears to be enforced vaccination at profit at least twice yearly for 7 billion people. I don't doubt it. But this one seems to have fooled a lot of people.
  2. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/348c02ea-bced-11ec-94e5-2197dead5942?shareToken=01171efb067d583f6f1111f5a55b7c74 The left is warping America's view of itself. Lionel Shriver.
  3. It matters to the fire brigade and the salvage yards Lithium ion is a totally different chemical reaction A total joke. Initially potentially. Agreed I don't actially 'need' to do anything of the sort. I corrected your misassumptions. Petrol needs an ignition source. The thing that is scary about lithium ion batteries, especially when they start being produced at scale is their propensity to spontaneously combust with no obvious source.
  4. Err no. It's scientific classification. Now, I've a very dumpy legged dog to walk. I'll leave you to it.
  5. A fire blanket will do absolutely nothing in a lithium ion fire as oxygen is not needed in an exothermic chemical reaction thermal runaway fire. You may be confusing lithium metal batteries with li ion. Several things are postulated as causes for li ion fires, manufacturing defects, component defect, overcharging etc .but no real cause is pinpointed in the well made well built battery. Yet they still have fires. The very fact that you suggest a fire blanket or think that 40 gallons of petrol which will eventually burn itself out compared to a thermal runaway fire in a tesla battery which could burn or reignite for weeks after shows a lack of understanding this topic.
  6. No. It just has shorter legs. There is plenty of fossil evidence for changes within a species and absolutely zero fossil evidence of species evolving into new species. The classic archeoptryx example was roundly lauded as a lizard bird transitional fossil. Until they realised it wasn't. But rarely are theory of evolution documents corrected until you do a bit of digging. Even the natural history museum still has 'Lucy' in it's human evolution change pictorial in the main hall.
  7. No I think that's correct. As neanderthals are a form of human like denisovans etc it stands to reason we could breed successfully with them. I think the standard thinking is that neanderthals were bred out of existence by the ' superior' tool wielding modern humans. I read some interesting stuff on beaker people too, but might be going off topic. I know and understand genetic manipulation can cause ' evolution ' changes . I guess the big question for me is whether this can happen by accident or only ( as I currently believe) by design. Nice to chat to you again Peter xx ( I know it's me that's been AWOL !!)
  8. This isnt quite correct. Obviously petrol tanks aren't a feature of fully electric cars. Petrol will burn out and exhaust themselves whereas li ion fires can restart days or weeks after they were thought to have been extinguished.Thermal runaway in a lithium ion battery is a chemical exothermic fire the cause of which they 'theorise' is worsened by repetitive charging. But scientists still don't really know what triggers the reaction to commence. Short circuiting may be a feature but is not thought to be the main trigger. Most Teslas for example are not yet old enough for the suspected deterioration in the cells that causes the exothermic reaction to begin. Chopping batteries in back street garages isnt yet a feature of most electric cars but will worsen as they become more prevalent. E scooters, laptops etc all use li ion in various sizes. Passenger planes will only allow the very smallest batteries in the cargo hold as fires have started which clearly has potentially devastating consequences for the plane. As for your final point 'That any Tesla goes up, means that their quality control is suspect. There is no good reason why they cant build batteries that never do that other than cost' As already well documented the cause of these battery fires is still very unclear and therefore until the science behind the inception hazard is understood no amount of throwing cash at a battery build will solve the current situation.
  9. Was a good show though. Nice to get his thoughts on turning everyone into computers.
  10. I'm assuming it'll be useful for his Starlink global internet system.
  11. Could be that he wants quick access to the massive amount of data twitter already has on people. Emails, deleted tweets, historic errors. Rather than building a similar platform from scratch he can take what's already there.
  12. Nano technology has been in multiple food and medicines for about 25 years. David shared an article on Monday. https://davidicke.com/2022/04/11/nanotechnology-used-in-covid-vaccines-and-2000-foods-goes-unlabelled/
  13. Yes. And I also believe staged movie sets to provide alternative 'shots' were also created by Kubrick.
  14. Bumping this article as it doesn't deserve to be lost in the day to day. Thanks to GR for providing it. Summary of main points 1. This is a genuine UK ministry of defence document, heavily redacted which shows interest and further study of remote viewing goes on at Government level. 2. The UK Government cite the work of Ingo Swann as an expert. 3. The test subjects were deliberately untrained to provide a control group against future experiments with RV trained experts. Their words. 4. 3 of the 20 untrained test subjects accessed the target to varying degrees. 5. Clear knowledge in the Government that electrical activity in the brain is altered under RV.
  15. That sounds interesting I'll check it out later thanks @DarianF.
  16. The link you provide to Berkeley is STILL talking about variations within a bird species. We have no problem finding intact fossils millions of years old. Why is there no fossil proof of species evolving into new species? Even followers of Darwin have had to change from slow changes should be evident in the fossil record to now theorising that dramatic sudden changes are now the fashionable groupthink for evolution. And yet, still no proof. Why is that?
  17. I have not misunderstood the article you presented. Perhaps if you think I have you could point out where and explain rather than post another video? The article uses mathematical modelling to postulate evolution but nowhere does it detail evidence for and examples of actual species altering other than divergences within species or hybrid sterilisation.
  18. I've read that article, and it says nothing new. It still describes variations within a species and dresses it up as evolutionary change. For example this paragraph 'Ecological speciation in host-plant associated populations of Timema cristinae walking-stick insects (individual populations feed on either the Ceanothus spinosus host plant or on Adenostoma fasciculatum). Pairs of populations feeding on the same host plant species, but in different geographic localities, are ecologically similar and assumed to not be subject to divergent selection. In contrast, pairs of populations feeding on different host plant species are ecologically divergent and subject to divergent selection. Different-host pairs (n = 15 pairs) exhibit significantly greater reproductive isolation due to divergent mating preferences (i.e., sexual isolation) than do same-host pairs (n = 13 pairs). This pattern is independent from neutral genetic divergence, a proxy for time since divergence. Mean divergence is shown for the mitochondrial COI gene (mtDNA) and for the nuclear IT-2 gene (nDNA).' Still is talking about divergence within stick insects. Not species evolving into new ones.
  19. Article that covers both your points with references :-) https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/52c8ccea-3672-4203-bde8-e5a3f205c208?shareToken=7f7b62f92a0d9480ff3535879391473f
  20. What's our Billy boy been up to besides being found out for playing with paedophiles, getting divorced and sexually harrasing subordinates?? Why, he is building an experimental nuclear reactor...as you do. Bill Gates-backed experimental nuclear power plant heads to tiny Wyoming city Officials have announced that Kemmerer, population 2,600, will be the site of a plant featuring a liquid sodium-cooled reactor A tiny city in the top US coalmining state of Wyoming is set to become the home of an experimental nuclear power project backed by Bill Gates. The new Natrium nuclear power plant will be located in Kemmerer, officials announced on Tuesday, and will replace a coal-fired plant that is set to close in 2025. “Our innovative technology will help ensure the continued production of reliable electricity while also transitioning our energy system and creating new, good-paying jobs in Wyoming,” said Chris Levesque, the CEO of TerraPower, the company behind the project that was founded by Gates about 15 years ago. Construction is set to begin in 2024. The project will employ as many as 2,000 people during construction and 250 once operational in a state where the coal industry has been shedding jobs. Kemmerer, one of four cities in the running to host the project, is home to 2,600 people and is located about 130 miles (210 km) north-east of Salt Lake City. Bill Gates and Warren Buffett to build new kind of nuclear reactor in Wyoming Read more If it’s as reliable as conventional nuclear power, the 345-megawatt plant would produce enough climate-friendly power to serve about 250,000 homes. The announcement came days after world leaders met at the Cop26 summit in Glasgow. Gates, co-founder of Microsoft and chairman of TerraPower, in June announced plans for the Wyoming project along with officials from Rocky Mountain Power, Joe Biden’s administration and the state of Wyoming, which produces about 40% of the nation’s coal. “We think Natrium will be a gamechanger for the energy industry,” Gates said at the project’s launch in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Proponents of the project, which will feature a sodium-cooled fast reactor and molten salt energy storage, say it would perform better, be safer and cost less than traditional nuclear power. “Natrium will be that next improvement on safety. Importantly it won’t rely on outside sources of power, pumps and extra equipment to help the plant recover in the event of an emergency,” said Levesque, referring to the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster caused by a tsunami that knocked out emergency generators. Advertisement Upgrade to Premium and enjoy the app ad-free. Upgrade to Premium The high heat-transfer properties of sodium will allow the Natrium plant to be air-cooled. That will enable the plant to be quickly shut down in case of an emergency, and the absence of emergency generators and pumps will save on costs, Levesque said. Others are skeptical about the benefits of sodium compared with water for cooling as in conventional nuclear plants. “The use of liquid sodium has many problems. It’s a very volatile material that can catch fire if it’s exposed to air or water,” said Edwin Lyman, director of nuclear power safety with the Union of Concerned Scientists science advocacy non-profit. Countries including the US have experimented with sodium-cooled fast reactors for decades but only Russia has fielded such a reactor on a large, power-producing scale, Lyman said. “Honestly I don’t understand the motivation,” Lyman said. “There are some people who are just strong advocates for it and they’ve sort of won the day here by convincing Bill Gates that this is a good technology to pursue.” Bill Gates and Melinda French Gates finalize divorce, court document shows 36w ago Bill Gates and Warren Buffett to build new kind of nuclear reactor in Wyoming 45w ago © 2022 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.

  21. At our allotments people ignore the lock up your birds dictate. And everything has been fine. Still free range eggs to be bartered for. Most allotments allow hens, bee hives and meat rabbits. All good for food sources. So that's what's being attacked. Independent food production. But then, you all know that.

  23. It's still a dog. Canine. Recognisably mammal. Just because you've changed physical features within a species it hasn't crossed species. It hasn't be come....a cat. Adding a few millienia hasn't changed that fact.
