Re: Politics Super Thread - keep it all in here

Not sure where your getting this from. On average a Chinese person now has the same carbon footprint as a European citizen. So no, our footprint is not worse, unless you are comparing us to African tribesman who spear their dinner and wash their clothes by smacking it on rocks down at the river. Is...

Re: Politics Super Thread - keep it all in here

Well then we disagree. It will take Joe and his family 50 lifetimes to produce the amount of emissions that one of those Chinese Factories produces in an hour. By all means look after the environment in your day to day life, that's fantastic, but don't pretend you're lowering global temperatures in...

Re: Politics Super Thread - keep it all in here

Australia's chief scientist said the other day that even if we closed down all of Australia ie mothball all vehicles, use zero coal, plug up all cows etc, this would have zero effect in regard to cc.

The seasons will continue as usual and the world will be fine.

Re: Zane Musgrove

If he is guilty the NRL should make a stand. It’s no good us tearing up his contract only for a Manly or a Parramatta to sign him. If he’s guilty he needs to be stood down - not from a club but from playing footy. Oh - and he should go to gaol How about a public execution? That would be awesome.

Re: Wests Tigers head to Western Sydney Stadium

I like how some are greatly offended about what a stand is called, yet have no issue with our home ground being in the heart of Parramatta. That’s okay, but don’t dare name a stand after a Parra player 🤔 Offended ,was the naming of the stands made clear before the purchase of memberships NO ! Was t...

Re: Zane Musgrove

Everyone is entitled to due process. It would appear that some people on this forum do not believe in this concept. I wonder if they would think the same if they were charged, or close friends or relatives were accused of a serious offence . I think I know the answer to that question. Let's see what...

Re: Politics Super Thread - keep it all in here

I have been on this planet for over seventy years. I have been really hot and really cold. I've seen big floods and big bushfires. When I was a kid it got so hot we would cook eggs on the footpath. All this stuff is called weather and seasons. Nothing much has changed. I'm all for a cleaner planet. ...

The Liberals and some USA Republicans are worse environmentally-wise than Marg Thatcher. In her maiden speech decades ago she warned of climate change (though have not found in print yet).

Funny, I heard one feminist offer that PC started as a joke. When someone offered a view that wasn't exactly in line with a political theory, they would say "that's not PC". Your first mistake was listening to a Feminist. Surprise surprise, she was wrong. Political Correctness as we know it origina...
