I am a little lost. I thought that during the King George (Bush) II rein there was a proclomation that there was no such thing as global warming or climate change and no seicne to support the claim it exists?

That proclamation was just propaganda distributed at the behest of the fossil fuel companies.

If you think that you have proof of what you say, then please post links to your sources.
Otherwise, read some of the original science research papers, and not what\'s published in American papers, and on American talk show programs.

Hi, RFP and welcome to ClimatePrediction.

If you really want to learn whats going on out there your might try catching the NOVA documentary “Extreme Ice” that was broadcast recently on American PBS stations. If you missed it you can stream it on your computer by going to www.pbs.org.

It give a true and unsettling picture of what is happening to the Greenland and Antarctic Icecaps.

Margaret Thatcher who used to be UK Prime Minister declared that there was no such thing as society.

You have to remember that King George is a part owner of an oil company. Like most things that King George said it only amounted to ----.

I really do not know what is wrong with people here in the states letting him serve a 2nd term. I did not vote for him. Les, now to teach those Brits to drive on the right side of the road and use the Euro as you do.

Oh we miss all those jokes about Tony Blair and George Bush.

LINK to Bush and Blair

I think that they wanted to reunite the US and UK.

Blair did like Bush. To some extent I judge people by their friends. Another of his friends was Berlusconi. I was told by a person who studied Law at Oxford Uni at the same time as Blair that he started off by joining the Conservative Club but when he found that the girl he was after, Cherie, was in the Labour Club he changed to that. I don\'t suppose Bush ever made the mistake of joining the wrong group of people.

If you have lots of money it\'s only natural to look for friends who also have lots of money, particularly if they let you use their country house for the summer. (I also accept offers of country houses for the holidays as long as they\'re well-furnished and the owners hire impoverished villagers to scrub the floors and do the weeding as I don\'t expect to spend my valuable leisure down on my knees.)

Bush did say many funny things so if you spent time with him you\'d never be short of a laugh.

Margaret Thatcher was great friends with Ronald and Nancy Reagan who probably helped distract her from the dreadful things her son was doing.

So I agree: some UK Prime Ministers would have happily reunited the US and UK.

In the UK they would not want to reunite with the states, learning to drive on the right would cause problems. You would have to many head on collisons in the first weeks. But that would be good for you after when going to other countries in Europe.

Millions of Brits take their cars across the Channel and drive on the right. But one hardly sees any continental European cars on the road in the UK. They\'re terrified of driving on the left.

Maybe it\'s beacuse I live in a town with 3 Million visitors annually, but I regularly see visitors with vehicles from over a dozen different European nations. The ones to beware of are those in disguise - using hire cars. Take double care with these at roundabouts (a mystery to most nations): if a hire car is indicating \'left\' that\'s a sure sign that \'right\' is a favourite alternative, and being in the \'right\' lane is an alternative indication for turning \'left\'.

The worst thing was in France when traffic already on a roundabout had to give priority to entering traffic, the (in)famous \'priorité à droite\'. Roundabouts filled up until there was a complete standstill when nobody could leave it but more cars were still forcing their way in.

My nearest roundabout now has a roadworks sign calling it a giratory.

In Australia, (NSW anyway), first to the roundabout has priority.

I\'ve just been past that roundabout again. Gyratory.
