On how eco-religious zealots use the precautionary principle to impede progress in the face of scientific evidence to the contrary.
Eco-religious zealots use precaution today to spread fear like medieval campaigns during the Great Plague of London

"If you think vaccines cause autism you are expressing something factually wrong, not an opinion. The fact that you may still believe that vaccines cause autism does not move your misconception into the realm of valid opinion. Nor does the fact that many other share this opinion give it any more validity."
You may think that something is "just your opinion", but often you're just wrong.

It was surprisingly fun. Riding quiet country lanes in the early morning hours with the full moon out was quite a zen experience.

Honestly, I'd be more concerned with the chemicals in Domino's before worrying about chemtrails.

I've always maintained that modifying human behaviour to curb consumption is impossible globally unless an outside force (such as the environment having degraded catastrophically) forces us to. This is ultimately what's going to save our skin: mitigation on a massive scale, rather than prevention.
By turning the CO2 into fuel, it recycles environmental pollutants.

+Branimir Dolički I've now watched the video in the article too. The ability to produce fuel seemed like a nice bonus to me, but I focused on the ability to bury it as the primary purpose. (I'm not sure what the balance will really be. Happy to let a cap and trade market determine this. ;-)

"But Trump clearly isn't running to win an award for consistency or, for that matter, to win the presidency. If his candidacy is, in fact, a well-executed troll, Trump will never let on that it was all an act."
The real estate mogul and TV star's hard line on immigration won't win him the presidency, but it's exposing a part of the GOP that party leaders would like to hide.

Despite protestations and denials, the latest Tube strike is yet again down to the money. In other news, this time round the cost to the economy is anything from £10m to £600m: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/road-and-rail-transport/11725841/Tube-strike-London-commuters-come-to-blows-travel-updates-on-Thursday-evening-live.html

And a whole bunch more done: #15 Carterton, #16 Swindon, #17 Devizes, #18 Chipping Sodbury, #19 Warminster and #20 Amesbury. Beautiful sunset and blood moon. Riding past Stonehenge just as daylight starts breaking in freezing fog was pretty surreal.

Surprisingly pleasant pub considering it is right next to a major station. Downstairs is decidedly more quiet, with small alcoves to seat small groups of people.

Amazing ex-public toilet converted into a very cosy coffee shop. The antique porcelain urinals have been converted into small tables, but the whole thing is a sight to behold.

Fairly typical local boozer with aspirations to being a gastropub. Beer selection is extensive and the food is decent. Seating and decor is decidedly haphazard.

Since Everyman have taken over they've added their usual flourishes to this amazing 20s era cinema. Things still feel a bit like a work in progress, with bare floors disguised as industrial decor and Odeon-branded seating left over.

Delightful little deli-slash-coffee shop. Lovely selection of local produce, including interesting liquors. Friendliest staff and very accommodating to our large group's demands.
