Global Warming

They do say that cow farts are partly to blame for changes in the planets atmosphere. I think that farts were also responsible for the extinction of dinosaurs. Can you imagine millions of years ago, a few hundred thousand of these dropping their guts every bloody day?

They were ******* massive, ate nothing but trees and I'll wager that a brontosaurus bottom burp was bloody horrendous..... AND they scoffed all the trees as well. It was all their fault so seeing as they've all been dead for yonks, and all we've got left are herds of farting cattle (that are much smaller than a brontosaurus and don't eat trees) - I think that the planet can go on for a few more years yet, just as long as no mad scientist starts attempting to clone the ******* things in order to populate a theme park.

It is cows' burps that is the main problem (due to their four ruminant stomachs - chewing the cud) rather than their farts.

Wet wood is a wasteful as you have to boil the water out when burning. Most proper country dwellers would naturally dry the wood under a shelter - not 0% moisture content, but pretty low. People who sell "wet" wood are just charlatans/spivs who don't want to have the expense of storing the wood for a year, or so.

They opened up the Selby Coalfield which fed Drax power station in the early 80's
-
Selby coalfield (also known as the Selby complex, or Selby 'superpit') was a large-scale deep underground mine complex based around Selby, North Yorkshire, England, with pitheads at Wistow Mine, Stillingfleet Mine, Riccall Mine, North Selby Mine, Whitemoor Mine and at Gascoigne Wood Mine, The scheme used an unusual arrangement of pits in the coal field – all coal was brought to the surface at the drift mine of Gascoigne Wood, whilst five pits were created to the east (Wistow, North Selby, Riccall, Stillingfleet, and Whitemoor) which transferred their coal via tunnels to Gascoigne Wood. The primary purpose of the pit was to supply coal for electrical power generation.

Mining peaked in 1993–4 at 12 million tonnes a year. The mines were acquired by RJB Mining in 1997 after the privatisation of the coal industry; loss of subsidy, geological problems, and low UK coal prices made the pits unprofitable by the 21st century. Closure was announced in 2002, and mining completely ceased by 2004.


Just as well.........
