  • RE: climate change

    For a long time now I have been seeing and hearing
    explanations for climate change from people who have
    vested interests in keeping it in the news.
    Many millions must have been absorbed in salaries
    and expenses for the many meetings held in it`s name.
    As a layman with my own ideas I am usually ignored,
    `fobbed off` and told how ridiculous what I think is.

    I would like to know the logical answers to my thinking
    even if I am talking rubbish!

    The first thing I would like clarification on is the effect
    the turbulence from coastal and hillside windfarms
    have on `local weather conditiions`, can a coastal
    windfarm draw a weather front that would have
    remained out at sea inland?
    Does turbulence (and from research pictures I have
    seen there is a large amount) from hillside windfarms
    affect and change weather conditions that had been
    in place for many years?
    If these examples are possible and happen, why are
    the results looked on as climate change? by these

    When I see a white vapour trail from an aircraft at
    perhaps 40,000ft and observe it again a time later
    it has expanded and begun to take the shape of a cloud.
    It is joined by many others created over a period of
    observed time, finally taking complete cloud formations.
    These must contain the water vapour from the aircrafts,
    falling at some stage, I presum...
