No chance, a fantasy. Yes they have recovered DNA from permafrost preserved bodies but that is a long long way from having a live animal wandering about.

Interesting reading on this and other chilly subjects... http://siberiantimes.com/home/

Oh, I agree!  Gotta wonder if they ever watched any of the Jurassic Park movies.

Going back to red diesel !

I see that it can still be used
"To propel passenger, freight or maintenance vehicles designed to run on rail tracks"
No mention that it has to be actually running on rails though, so how about this conversion https://totalrailsolutions.co.uk/on-track-plant/land-rover-4x4-110-defender-type-9c-rrv/

Wolly Mammoth bones, skulls and tusks have been found within 20 miles of our house here in Kansas.

As to looking out your widow and seeing any... there is a new company called 'Colossal' that is making the claim they are bring them back.

The idea of “Project fear” has been used for decades for many causes. We saw it used during the Brexit debate. We have seen it used during the Covid pandemic. Common sense will always overcome this sooner or later.
The “man made” global warming brigade also use this tool, by predicting more and more dire future events hoping to scare us into their camp because the proof of their predictions is missing.
Fortunately there are folk (on this forum) who explain my views, much more eloquently than I could write. Our way of life is being ruined in the name of yet another project fear. As Correus said what about China, Russia, India, the real polluters.. They don’t need project fear, they just control their citizens.
I am looking forward to what is left of my life because know that project fear never prevails.

We are almost certainly changing the climate.
The climate has also changed due to natural causes many times in the geological past.

But remember that large scale climate change, regardless of cause, has been catastrophic for many life forms. Look out of your window for a dinosaur for example. Or if you live in the UK, a woolly mammoth.

It is going to be bad news, catastrophic in fact. I hope it happens after my lifetime.

Superfire 2 torch on MAP cartridges is great BUT  not cheap to run if using a lot.....

A  regulator for your 47kg  and a big torch would be cheaper to run but not as convenient as MAP.

I have both and just use the MAP kit for small jobs working mobile out of the van, big bottle and torch in the workshop for heating up castings etc.

HTH.  :cheers

Considering their apparent modest size, the Green party and its promotors shout very loudly and get heard. The governing powers, whether Blue or Red, panic and worry votes will be lost and so policy's change to accommodate that very loud minority, while the silent majority just meekly do as they are told.

I don't doubt the sincerity of many politicians, but I`m left feeling it`s all a giant short-term tactical game for power.

I don't know enough to agree or disagree with the global warming argument, but I believe that in its 4.5 billion years the Earth has seen extreme weather changes without the help of man.

The debate is evidently stacked against those who would argue against it, because if they dare to deviate from the generally accepted and populist view they are immediately belittled and vilified. You'd have to be a pretty thick-skinned scientist to poke your head above that parapet.

I`m afraid we live in an age where to voice an opinion at odds with the mainstream is to open yourself to trolls and vilification. Free speech, I don't think so.

The Earth suffered its last Ice-Age 11,001 year's ago and many of those who know about this say its certain to happen again.  And because an Ice-Age is totally dependant on the Earths orbit nothing we do now can change that. What a comforting thought  :tiphat   

Sounds to me yu have a rather good grasp on what's going on.   :tiphat

The Earth has gone through many, MANY climate changes since the beginning.  Some have been mild and some drastic, yet virtually all took place before humans started recording history.  The evidence is easily found through the geological record.  IIRC, based on my studies in college, most of these changes took place about every 5,000 years +/- 1,000 years - and yes, the pole shifts can be seen as well.

I have heard the doom-and-gloom of global warming for about as long as I can remember.  Just look at ALL of the climate 'predictions' over the past several decades - remember Al Gore (?), not a single prediction he pushed has come true.  Following is a link to some of those "predictions" and their years.  It's just insane how gullible people area!! 

https://www.aei.org/carpe-diem/50-years-of-failed-doomsday-eco-pocalyptic-predictions-the-so-called-experts-are-0-50/

What bothers me most is that everyone who buys into this "green" stuff so much only seem to be concerned about CO2 emissions, with a few screaming about other pollutants - you know... plastic straws are 'bad' but the plastic wrapping is okay.  Most of these people scream and shout that it's all the 'West's' fault, therefore we must pay to fix it. 

When it comes to the climate and environment when are they going to start screaming and yelling at the Far East - especially China...

I'm tired of hearing it... and it's even harder to listen to all f these politicians who tell us how 'bad' we are and tge 'we' need to clean up our acts when they continue flying all over the world, in private jets, attending all of these climate meetings.  "Rules for thee, not for me".
