    racists usually call people triggered by memories "snowflakes"... It continues to amuse me, and very little about these people does, that the surest sign that someone is a snowflake is them ranting about snowflakes. Just about guarantees that failing to...

    (specifically: doing that would not change the process in any meaningful way, merely speed it up. In that sense it would be a positive contribution... which is no doubt why she did not do it)...

    vote for a clean brexit, or something. "clean brexit, or something" sounds about right. But for all the connection with reality they might as well vote to double everyone's unicorn poop allowance. A clean Brexit was ruled out early in...

    biggest government defeat in history Sack of Rome? Nuclear bombing of Nagasaki? Even the Dismissal (Australia) was worse IMO. Can I suggest that in England the signing of the Magna Carta was a significant government defeat, as was the life...

    angloforming Brilliant neologism!...

    Geez, don't make me think about stuff like that. I arrived when Bob "driving in the park" Carr was in full swing and wasn't that a happy little introduction to state politics in Australia. He likes nature the same way...

    The Jo Cox thing is awful, and IIRC it's being used right now by the arseholes who are harassing MPs outside parliament as a nasty twist on their harassment. That really pushes my "free speech" buttons and I'm seriously thinking...

    Koch got stuck into Berejiklian this morning on Sunirise over pill testing and the latest death. When you lose the segment of journalism DK represents and you are a conservative politician That's pretty shocking. But then Koch is a drug...

    (for those not in on the joke, there's a cartoon called First Dog on the Moon that gets into The Guardian fairly regularly. That refers to Our Glorious Leader of Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition in The Australian Federal Parliament by...

    Yeah, looks as though it will be quite a while before get another woman as Prime Minister in Oz. But then, given the rate we burn through them "quite a while" might turn out to be several weeks, maybe even...

    a female prime minister here in the UK Speaking of which, where are the Labour women? Also, I'm not saying your prime ministers are corrupt, incompetent or some horrible combination of both... but advertising their services on Amazon? Here's the...

    There was an amusing piece the the Guardian recently about Kate Bush. Who foolishly admitted to thinking that having Theresa May as PM was a good thing (on the basis that more female leaders is good, even if they're conservatives)...

    "The Economist" have released their democracy index for the year, there's a whitepaper if you sign up. But it's widely covered so here's the kiwi take on it. Shockingly Aotearoa is still fourth despite making no changes to the systems...

    The seawater-extraction process will get industrialised, costs reduced and made more efficient and the price per lb will fall But when? This whole thread has turned into a discussion of the rate of fall of civilisation, and you're talking about...

    IMO the best thing about the UHV/megavo;t stuff is that it looks like something out of science fiction. All the toroidal anti-arcing rings and generally wild shapes. Sure it works and it's really effective and whatever, but it looks cool!...

    If only we had some sort of sign from above As if I needed any more reason to be scared while using the roads. I can't wait for the results of the investigation (thankfully not a coroner's report). My bet...

    The new VAT exemption rules mean Wizard Tower Books is selling DRM free books direct, rather than always tithing 20% to the government then 30%-50% to the online giants. http://www.julietemckenna.com/?p=3003 Good news!...

    The trouble with that definition is that it means there has never been a capitalist system outside of a few small company towns (reading the description generously - I'm not aware of a self-sufficient company town). So it's not a...

    It's great that there are at least some reactor building types around. But if there were 600 new reactors being rush built around the world, how many competent people would be willing to relocate to Australia? And at what price?...

    I'm asking warming, solar, or nuclear. 1. Disaster - when nuclear has killed far fewer than coal On the one hand you appear to agree coal is irrelevant but on the other hand you keep bringing it up. If you...

    the entire enviromental movement ... never saw a push for nuclear That is likely the "no true scotsman" fallacy at work. There are pro-nuclear greenies, quite possibly including you. But if you mean "there was never vocal consensus on X...

    My limited experiments with nano-climate zones around houses I've lived in suggests that that kind of reflected light magnifies change in solar input through the year. Plants that do well with lots of sun tend to not do well with...

    Interesting article that relates somewhat to climate change fatigue: no matter what I do, or you do, that problem is not going away. Not in my lifetime, not in yours. But if we work really hard for the rest of...

    That is, again, irrelevant. The thread was not about financing, but productivity Specifically, it was about the loss of productivity when a crop is destroyed. You were (and apparently still are) adamant that losing a tree crop is less damaging...

    I have been fobbed off by a variety of NSW Liberal Party members when writing to them to suggest that since they're such huge fans of coal they should help with my campaign to re-open White Bay Power Station. It's...

    I suspect you could do that, and now I'm wondering whether it would be a good idea. On the positive side olive trees don't need much maintenance so could be grown even if there was radiation, they don't need much...

    That, or there is something wrong with the risk assessment. Or possibly with your analysis? You're asking "global warming or nuclear power", people like me are asking "solar, nuclear, or warming". The different answers from the group who see three...

    In related news here's Lindybeige talking about olive farming on the tubes of U. He's a military-history type, making the point that olives grow where not much else will, but they're vulnerable to military action in a way that annual...
