    Default Kerrrrrrrrrrrching. £18 a pint due to "Climate Change"

    http://uk.news.yahoo.com/21/20091028...s-6323e80.html

    Soaring food prices could leave UK consumers forking out almost £6.50 for a loaf of bread and more than £18 for a pint of beer by 2030 unless urgent action is taken to avert dangerous climate change, environmentalists have claimed.


    Everyones on the Climate Change gravy train bandwagon.

    Current client has a section on carbon footprint of the project for all investment/funding requests.

    Hang about, I'm sure I've seen/read a report that states that yields would go up with higher Carbon Dioxide levels?
    How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

    Does anybody know the cost of a pint in 1967?
    Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

    I preferred version 1!

    I wonder if we murdered all the climate change fanatics, how much valuable resource (food, fuel, travel) that would save?


    Enough to justify it, I feel.

    A casual Google indicates about 2 shillings.

    I think inflation is accelerating since the last 20 years and peak oil will make matters worse. The money we save for retirement will be worth peanuts.

    Ok - so in 2030 a pint will be 18 quid. Say it's 3.50 to 4 quid now.
    18/3.5 = 5.14 - So a pretty big increase there

    In 1967 if a pint was 10p, I know that in the late 80's, a pint was close to 2 quid. That's a 20 fold increase in a 21 year period. was there global warming then also?

    The 21 years between 88 and now have been good in price of a pint terms
