            The effect, if any, of the “mad cynical rantings” on here, is for those who make them to reinforce them in their own minds, and practice them, before finding ways of slipping them into real life interactions; and for them to turn up on occasional google searches… it’s the long-term low-level pitter patter that slowly but surely seeps into and fills the mainstream. It’s also a barometer. In so many domains the left-wing scum control everything; the internet is one domain they can’t control (even software for controlling comments can be subverted).
            The old media is dying, and the internet is growing, so all this powerless fury is the slow deposition of political micro-organisms that will over time form the political bedrock upon which the leftofascists can be challenged and overthrown.
            If you only ever consumed the so-called main-stream-media you wouldn’t understand where all this UKIP support was coming from… and I think that’s the case… so enclosed is the left-wing world, that they cannot understand where this is all from; nor can they believe that it’s going anywhere. They resort to splenetic reactionary ad hominem bigotry, by calling UKIP racists etc.., and it confuses them that it not only doesn’t work, but it actually feeds the beast.

            Let them chuckle. The world is about to open up beneath their feet. Just as it did in Canada in the 90s. You think UKIP can’t take votes from Labour and hit 40%?

      Calling a woman a slag is fine. If you combine that epithet with a rac!al term then you have just made a statement discriminating by race.

      The power dynamic is a void argument to attempt to discriminate against white people, in this case. It fails, as by granting the right on this basis to black people actually empowers them over whites, which is a further reason the argument is void.

      If A’bbott was making this argument in public she has very likely just committed a public order offence under the hate speech laws, and sections relating to incitement of illegal acts.

    Socialism is a mental illness for which the cure is heavy metal says:

    It is beyond question that the Conservative party has been totally subverted by Cameron and his cronies and therefore cannot be supported by any rational voter. How can they call themselves the Conservative party when they have abandoned Conservative policies ?
    Miliband’s mob are the party of scroungers and parasites, pursuing policies which have been proven disastrous over and over again wherever they have been tried.
    The LibDems are really just a sick joke, wannabees who hunger for power but are incapable of producing cohesive ideas, preferring to jump onto any passing bandwagon that they think might make them look good for a couple of seconds. They use divide-and-rule tactics to ride rough-shod over the democratic process.

    Voting for any of the above will end up with the UK in ruins and its people enslaved by the totally corrupt and anti-democratic EU.

    To make matters worse, all of the above harbour and protect sex perverts within their midst. You and your children are not safe when there’s one of their party members about.

    All of the above are proven hypocrites and liars. They operate by stealth and deceit. It is barely credible that they continue to publish manifestos and election leaflets and spout their lies on TV and in newspapers when their utterings are such blatant garbage. “Conservative”, Labour and LibDem politicians are taking us all for fools.

    Yes, the political system needs to be thoroughly purged.
    The UK is under assault, and the best way to save it right now is to give the LibLabCons an almighty kicking by supporting UKIP.
    You can see that the establishment is running scared.
    You must have realised that there are lots of comments appearing these days which have been produced by trolls who are paid to smear UKIP.
    You must have seen articles in the MSM in the names of contributors who you previously considered to be fairly sensible. The MSM in the UK has been bought and paid for, and I don’t mean by the readers.

    The first step on the way to UK recovery is immediate exit from the EU.
    Ignore the scare-mongering of the LibLabCons – the UK managed just fine before the EU monster sank its claws into the UK.
    The UK will be far better off without the EU and its lackeys, and the same goes for the rest of Europe too.

    Vote UKIP.

        You make the mistake of. thinking it is EU MP’s who decide the laws.

        EU MP’s merely rubber stamp laws that have been made by the unelected bureaucrats.

        The only way to change EU law is for the UK MPs and parliament to negotiate a change, and or leave the EU.

        The only problem is none of the Lib LabCon want to change anything, yet alone leave and agree a new deal.

        Until the electorate wake up and realise UK MP’s don’t care about UK sovereignty and are all Europhiles bought and paid for… Nothing will change.

        However I expect you know that full well and shouting like a madman about EU MP’s serves you well as a distraction from the complete failure of duty our own UK MP’s have shown by their traitorous inaction.

        It actually doesn’t matter what UKIP say or do, all that actually matters is that the public demonstrate that they won’t take any sh!t, and are willing and able to break the status quo, whatever that status quo is; and regardless of what the media try to pump out.

        The point of voting UKIP is not to get a UKIP government; the point is to shake up or even destroy the system as it is, and the complacency, and have some kind of impact on the corruption and perversion that’s been going on for so long.

        They don’t believe that we, the public, can do it, but they are forgetting that we, the public, are better able to get our own information, and more of it, than ever before. We are empowered like never before, we have muscle, and we need to flex it.

        We can put UKIP up to like a bowling ball to knock down all the skittles, and then dump them later, with our point well-made. To anyone who isn’t sure about voting UKIP, vote for them just to change the status quo – UKIP themselves don’t matter.

    @OR (and anyone else interested…) : Global Warming de-bolloxed.

    Quick update on the urban heat island checking for CRUTEM42 data.

    Shall put up on pastebin the precise list of cities which have been filtered. The cities were derived from the following:

    http://demographia.com/db-worldua.pdf

    Have considered 829 of these major cities in the table included there.

    (The largest area occupied by those cities listed implies a radius of 60km assuming the shape of the cities are circular.)

    The following summarizes the number of weather stations identified as falling within specified distance (square of side specified centred on an identified city) in the CRUTEM4.2 data over all time:

    Distance /km | Total Inside | Total Outside
    ---------------------------------------------
        50       |     46       |     6144
       100       |    161       |     6029
       150       |    321       |     5869
       200       |    486       |     5704
       
    Total weather stations (all time): 6190
    

    Have calculated the average temperatures by global region (north / south hemisphere, etc.) for the data set comprising only ‘inside’ weather stations and those outside. They are all northern hemisphere for the ‘inside’ stations.

    Working on the analysis now, but a preliminary look at the 50km data is showing that the regional averages by year / month for the ‘inside’ stations are based on at least 30 data points (statistically good), and there does appear to be a very different temperature variation compared to the averages calculated excluding these inside points: Several degrees (~4C) higher and lower through the year, with a larger overall range.

    Fairly certain this is the UHI effect which is what most people will be familiar with in their day to day experience of the weather and local climate.

    It is important to understand that urban affected weather patterns and meso-climates are not natural, and are not representative of much larger natural weather patterns which exist. They do ultimately interact, quantifying that interaction beyond statistical bias is I guess one of the tasks that climate science should be focused on.

    Will be looking to see the impacts on the 100 – 200km ranges, and if there is any noticeable difference between those ranges for the inside stations.

    Will get this properly plotted to check actual geographical biases, and compare the land data excluding urban too see if those averages start to align more closely with the regional SST values.

    Expecting some variation there due to the different thermal properties of land vs. sea, but perhaps less overall variance with the urban zones removed.

    In particular, will be looking to see how the very slight upward trend implied by the CRUTEM42 data is affected by the removal of some of the urban affected weather stations.

        Much more interested in isolating stations affecting in North America / Central Europe in particular. What is striking is that the weather stations close to major urban Centres appear to be in the northern hemisphere.

        Major urban development of course exists in the Southern, but the weather stations in CRUTEM located in A’ustralia for example, appear to be located > 50km from their major cities.

        The same appears to be true of South America. But – 829 is a subset of the ~1000 on that list.

          Take your point but my observation was just an extrapolation from intimately familiar territory to the rather less familiar in order to gauge the principles of consolidation used and to point these out in this forum.

          Having said that and having travelled to all continents, I noticed other similar treatments around the globe.

          What we are looking at in many cases here are the super cities of the future. A foreigner coming to Britain for the first time would be hard pressed to differentiate between the Cities of London and Westminster, if walking along the pavement. Brighton and Hove, Bournemouth and Poole, Manchester and Salford are all similar. Most here can deal with that without worry but one needs the local knowledge and historical perspective to appreciate all the ramifications.

          Southampton and Portsmouth is what is meant by South Hampshire in this context. They will never become a continuum though because of the geography.

          On the other hand, to use your example of South America, Rio de Janeiro and Niteroi/São Gonçalo can be, and is, considered an entity despite the intervention of Guanabara Bay.

          The siting of the weather stations is a subject in itself and has promoted a lot of discussion as you will know. One has to ensure in deciding where to place them that they are not overrun by herds of ManBearPig. ;-)

            The question of location is more one of dominance and bias.

            The hypothesis I am looking at at the moment is that the Urban vs. Non-Urban land temperatures can be separated. That notion itself is based on the observation that the SST temperatures appear to trend are are observed different to the CRUTEM.

            My working assumption: As air itself is broadly the same material, and the temperatures are being recorded at similar altitudes with respect to the surface, is it the differences in surface have an impact on recorded air temperatures.

            So – the extrapolation in the hypothesis is that as Land has different properties to water, and urban land has different properties to natural, divide the recorded temperatures up along those lines as well as by time / broad latitude region, and see if anything emerges: In particular, anything which may have bearing on the overall averages.

            Can confirm now that I am seeing something with the 842 cities, at the 50km range.

            Looking at the yearly average temperatures for the northern hemisphere, tropical, non-tropical and overall, split urban / non-urban, the following is clear.

            i) From 1931, average urban temperatures have been about 3 degrees higher than non-urban, until 2009.

            ii) At 2009 the urban / non-urban yearly average temperatures have appeared to converge – the urban temperatures have trended up slightly, but the non-urban have headed towards the urban.

            Now – that may be due to increased urban development in the NH now showing up in the figures, which I have not stripped. That list of major cities was 2008, and I did not include all of them.

            Even if that is the case for the convergence I am seeing, the effect of urban on the overall averages appears to be massive.

            The last major uptick in yearly average non-urban temperatures occurred 1949 through 1953, at the end of the last war.

            In terms of disproving CO2 as being the cause of any temperature increase, this perhaps going that way.

            What appears to have happened in 1949 to 1953, combined with relatively steady state in non-urban whilst CO2 production was increasing is indicating that CO2 is not the primary driver of any warming.

            That urban development does redefine local climates is known.

            Real questions, and ones that may not have been addressed, are as follow:

            a) Is the effect of urban development of land surface on climate linear or non linear in terms of the medium to long term effect on average air temperatures ?

            b) What effect does urbanization of the earths surface (increasing local average temperatures by 3 degs over 50km^2 blocks) have ? Will it result in stable or unstable equilibria ? What are the nature of those equilibria, if they exist.

            c) If the equilibrium points are unstable, what are the safe percentage limits of urbanization by latitude before major changes may be observed in the larger global weather systems ?

            There are many others – you as I perhaps have not heard these asked by the media for a good few years, if at all.

            CO2 seems to be a very small part of the larger phenomena.

            In order to deter people from wishing to live in cities, targeting CO2 emission makes sense. However, urbanization is continuing globally.

            Is it fair to those in the socio-economic groups who have no other choice but to live in a city to disadvantage them in this way ?

            There are massive public policy issues here which have not been addressed, and some policies which have been, but perhaps not for the reasons given.

            Should also mention – when compared against the sea temperature data – the average global temperature recorded at sea has been steady between 1931 and 2013 at a little over 20C.

            That is 5C above the 50km urban only yearly averages which I am seeing, to which the non urban has been apparently converging since 2009.

            The trend of non urban towards urban is also seen in the tropic of Capricorn, but the urban / non-urban / SST yearly average temperatures have all been fairly constant in that region at a little
            over 25C – with only the slight uptick of non-urban towards urban seen from 2009. Yearly average SST is still above land.

            The yearly average SST are not showing either of the up-trends land shows – in 1949-1953, and 2009 to present. That suggests that the land temperatures are not being affected by a global phenomena such as AGM due to CO2 emissions, but likely local AGM due to urban development.

            Arguing Devil’s advocate for a moment, that seems to mitigate in favour of the argument that emissions can be reduced in Britain but not in China and India with a beneficial effect IF AND ONLY IF the main plank of AGW (the G of AGW) is withdrawn (thus invalidating any value confers on the resultant and stilted energy policies).

            The need for urban development to reflect the composition of the prior ground state is reinforced. As I dr’ove through the Lungau Valley recently, I looked at the wooden buildings with grass growing on their roofs, in the way they have been for centuries.

            Amazing that all those decades and more ago, we used to do this stuff instinctively. In the modern era, we have almost lost all that. Except that some buildings are planted-out on top now but I suspect that is for insulative purposes rather than reflective ones.

    Bercow cutting Cameron off mid-sentence on Wednesday was outrageous. Whatever you think of Cameron, that show of bias was appalling. The c-unt has overstepped the line one too many times. It’s time to have him removed. Surely there must be some dirt on him they can dig up and have leaked to the press?

    Betty Boothroyd was magnificent and ever since her retirement we’ve suffered two absolutely dreadful speakers. Bercow is an attention seeking narcissist who uses his position to let off steam over his marital problems, i.e being a pathetic cuckold. No one finds his “take a pill” comments funny in the slightest. His one brief redeeming moment was berating Labour’s Fiona Mactaggart with a joke about her having been to Cheltenham, but it’s too little in comparison to the bias he otherwise shows in favor of Labour. He’s scum and needs to go.

    Renationalise the railways, energy supplies and water for starters.

    The concept of selling strategic industries such as these was totally bonkers. The country depends on these and to have them in the hands of private companies is idiocy in the extreme.

    The energy sector is a perfect case in point. Now it’s in private hands, if the government tries to regulate it in any way the companies just threaten power cuts. They have the government over a barrel.

    And … incidentally … ‘they’ refers (in part) to the French nationalised energy company. It defies belief. Swathes of the Tory party are anti-Europe but they happily countenance EDF owning a huge chunk of the UK’s energy production and distribution.

    Bonkers.

      Even if your argument had any validity, rail transport is not a “strategic industry”, it is an irrelevance. The vast majority of the population has never been on a train and doesn’t want to get on one, because they don’t live anywhere near a station and don’t want or need to go anywhere which is.

      Railfreight is equally insignificant, the figures pathetic as they are are artificially inflated by MGR coal (and more recently biomass) trains which should have been replaced by power station at ports and opencast mines years ago.
      Container trains actually generate road traffic as there are ridiculous flows between rail terminals for some reason.

      The railways were built and run with private money but started losing money as each railway line was separate and road transport was slowly taking over after WWI, this is why more or less they ended up being forcibly amalgamated in the 1920,s ,in 1945 the were nationalised, but should have been kept out of the hands of politicians, as usual they fcked them up and Major privatised them in such a bad way the people who use them and the taxpayers are losers, I believe that their are a few industries that should be in public hands but not politicians as they are essential for the public, HS2 is public money and should be private money if they want to go faster, public money should be used for other things like paying our debts the politicians and their mates created.
