    The human brain is not fully developed before about 25 years of age.
    Why any adult would be seeking advice from a 16 year old on any serious subject is beyond me,

    It's like riding a bike Clive. When you first start you get it wrong a few times. But when you are young you are quick to learn, adaptable and have the ability to sort things out.

    As I said in my previous post, I admire young people now and am confident of there ability to take over the reigns from us old farts who are very set in our ways. There is quite a difference between intelligence (learning how to ride a bike) and life experience (remembering how to ride a bike).

    Not all of them are smart, but then, definitely not all of us older ones are either. I had a pretty low opinion of youth till I took on a job that involved me with them.

    I agree with what you say Ken, some young people are very smart and will in the future solve problems that we do not even know exist at the present time. There is however very good reasons that we do not have an apprentice in charge of an engineering company. We do not have a 16 year old as the minister of finance and we do not expect a private soldier to run the army and the like. I for one would never take advice from my 16 year old self. I, and I believe most people, have learned a lot since I was 16 and I have changed the way I think and look at the world as a result. At the risk of boring Gary I cannot say that I have the slightest desire to attack anyone. I am perfectly happy that others may have a differing opinion to me They do not have a requirement to agree with me and visa versa.

    Is not you CliveM who attacks everything and everyone they can't understand, it is he who I have blocked AKA B(oring).M(ember) as his drivel is now beyond a joke, ever since I have been on this forum he has been the ultimate expert on every single subject and derides anyone who has an opinion that doesn't accept that.

    I see it as a simple case of the "Climate Change Sect Activists" making the bullets and getting the kids to fire them.

    Nothing has changed eh? Maybe inside your head (sarcastic).

    Just wondering where your scientific peer-reviewed articles proving those statements are? Or are you just going to post another opinion from a meteorologist from 1950 again?

    Or what you think and believe from those 3 graphs that has been spread about the internet so many times they are as relevant as the last message in a game of chinese whispers?
