After reading the last post on another topic that spoke about Global Warming I decided to look for a topic dedicated to Global Warming.
Hard to belive but the only place that came up in the search function was inbside the Scottish Independence topic??
So I decided to start a topic dedicated to the subject.

First of the bat I believe Global Warming is happening. Second I don't believe it's caused in any way by human activities. My opinion is its a natural occurrence that happens every couple of hundred years or so.
The scare mongers pushing human blame have ulterior motives driving them.
Some believe the message they are pushing.
A large majority in my opinion are in it purely because they use it as a cash cow.
About 20 years ago we were headed for a new Ice Age. That theory seems to have taken a dive and the bunny huggers have moved onto a new crusade.

Shows you how much use the search function is. I typed in Global warming and about five pages of Scottish independence came up.

Ashfield thank you for your post. Dave had a genuine misunderstanding, but Kemedian has no excuse for going on and on about Global Warming in other topics.

Oh Dave that is so uncomfortable, those temps wouldn’t do me. Age has made me less tolerant of hot weather. 70f is my limit!

Carmella we get high temperatures here in Joburg but where Dave is on the coast they get very high humidity which makes it uncomfortable. Down there they get rust on their cars whereas up here at 1650 metres (5500 Ft} above sea level we get dry heat and no rust. You would not get me in Durban Dec. Jan. or Feb. except on business. I always say its where you can go for a swim without getting in the water.

Not just the cars rust!!It has been much hotter last year and this. Also no winter. Only two months not swimming. zascot, wish everybody felt like you about coming here Dec, Jan and Feb. Life here is far too hectic and expensive then. Mind you in a wee place like ours the businesses need the money

I`m glad they are not like me Beth Christmas in Joburg is nice and quit with all the people down at the beach on the coast. In UK you are never more than 42 km from the beach, in Joburg its 570 km to Durban and 1450 to Cape Town.

Used to love Joburg at Christmas. Quiet roads safe to drive, empty restaurans It seemed as even the bad guys would go away for that month.

Walking up West st to the beach one day and can see and hear a Scots guy begging for money.
I was wearing a St Andrews golf tshirt.
As I got close to him he suddenly became interested in what was in the shop window.

sadly you would not walk that way these days. I remember when we stayed in Maritzburg, how excited I used to get going to town. Still crazy hot here today. Took a wee drive further down the coast for lunch today

Thinking of driving down to Ramsgate next Sunday.
There used to be a Geordie bar and restaurant that served Black Pudding, Haggis and the like.
Hopefully its still there.

Went for a walk along the beach front this morning and afterwards had to drive somewhere.
I normally have the cars aircon on the second fan speed but it was struggling to keep me cool enough so turned it up to the third speed.
Than When I looked at the temp gauge, 35c or in Carmella speak 95f what the humidity was I have no idea.
