  1. Both events sound excellent. Anyone planning on making a submission needs to be informed. These events certainly are excellent opportunities to start or continue that process.

  2. What a Duo, Cam Jones with his emotive ramblings and Jim with his adjusted figures. Posted a comment on the ZeroGen site with a more informative link – enjoy!

  3. In part here is the answer – because my comment was not gushingly positive – it was removed, so don’t look for it on the ZeroGen site – link above.
    So will post link here instead, be sure to read ‘Where do Wind Turbines come from?

  4. Climate scientists tell us that the consensus of opinion is that CO2 is the problem causing world temperature to rise. This has to be the most stupid of comments from supposedly learned people. Consensus means absolutely nothing if the Theory is Wrong!!!!
    Only religious beliefs are settled and only politics is done by consensus. Science is indifferent to both because it is necessarily impartial to vested interests. Religion and Politics require advocacy. Science does not. History’s Scientific landscape is littered with the carcases of dead theories all at one time or other held to be the ‘consensus’ view yet many undone by a single ‘heresy’. AGW is just another one. Thankyou Regards Dick Reaney Havelock North

  5. Climate scientist correctly tell us that the climate is changing because of our greenhouse gas emissions, of which carbon dioxide is the most well-known. Generation Zero should be congratulated for taking action to promote simple, effective solutions to the problem.

    Dick Reaney comments “Consensus means nothing if the theory is wrong.” Which is interesting, seeing as we are already seeing the effects of our changing climate, showing that the theory isn’t wrong. Mr Reaney falls into the category of those firmly with their head in the sand over this issue, with organisations including Oxfam, The Royal Society, the European Investment Bank, NASA and even PriceWaterhouseCoopers recognising the issue and taking much needed action.
