    Let us clear up a couple of points.

    Firstly, I don't claim to be clever, but it does amaze me how dumb some people are to believe the tripe that Journalists with an agenda spew out.

    Secondly, I had already read the article you linked to and would comment as follows.

    Pure hysteria, the writer probably hasn't even seen a bush fire let alone be in a position to compare them.

    And then:

    Which translated means The Guardian has an agenda and will go out of its way to create unsubstantiated Hysteria and collect a dollar or two along the way.

    "Stuffs" reporting is along the same lines and they too freely admit their biased reporting. (Quick Save the Planet)

    Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    If you had actually read the entire article instead of grabbing the headlines, you would've noticed that the writer wasn't the one comparing them:

    And again if you read their pledge:

    It's not different to Wikipedia asking for donations once a year.

    They accept sweet f-all advertising so need to try and remain functional somehow - what actually goes on behind the scenes on the books with either company is anyone's guess.

    And finally:

    Ok you may not claim to be clever, but the majority of the info I have ever linked here is from scientists and their studies. The very tripe that you complained about Journalists spewing out was exactly what your original post was!
    It's like the pot calling the kettle black.

    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    And just how many Joules would that be?

    You didn't bother to read the article, it mentions: 228 sextillion Joules

    Here's a similar article from another source:

    I’m blinded with science, but still think they’re one short and should recount.

    As per usual BM you are ignoring an article with piles of info from actual scientists and claiming it as propaganda while the article you posted/quoted to start this thread was by a novelist/essayist/journalist/critic.

    While there is absolutely nothing wrong with any of those professions/endeavours it takes a special sort of person to ignore science.

    Yes science isn't perfect (has never claimed to be, and as soon as they realise there is a better explanation they change - unlike some) but it sure as s**t beats someone playing devils advocate or the ramblings of someone who died 70 years ago - believe it or not both science and the very world we live on have changed an awful lot since he was around.

    I agree with a lot of his reasonings and thought processes, but you would be foolish to take something written over 70 years ago and not consider that the information/data available has changed significantly and therefore another approach to the current situation could be considered.
