    Anyway the big freezeup two years ago didn't result in any less bugs around.

    Try summer hiking in the Artic regions like Canada, Norway or Alaska. You need to cover yourself in extra strength DEET to survice beaing eaten.

    Really?
    I was under the impression that P.ie was a political discussion site, this thread being the in the environmental forum of said site, the possibilities for a decent informed political discussion of the OP are apparent I would have thought.

    For example we could discuss the fact that even in the heart of unbridled capitalism, the good ole USA, it is against the law for a utility to disconnect a vulnerable customer during cold weather, yet in so called leftie Ireland vulnerable customers are more likely to be disconnected in colder spells.

    How much help do you need ????

    And yet you wont catch cold in sub zero temps? I meant of course bacteria and viruses. The unseasonably mind weather we've had of late is partially to blame for the significant increase in vomiting bugs and stomach complaints at the moment.

    The cold doesn't kill them par se, it renders them inert.

    Sure its always somebody elses fault. Its our national motto. The USA has "Land of the free...etc, etc". We have "sure that's all somebody elses fault that is.........etc, etc......."

    Pat Gill likes to speculate about sea levels rising by 47 feet in the next 6 months and drown us all cause we drive real cars.


    Don't be getting the Pat's mixed up.

    Well I'll take death by an over inflated PS over death by rising sea levels any day.

    Apologies for the mix up Pat, I think.

    You know when you look at a map of the world, or a globe, do you ever think, why all the water? And apart from polluting it and murdering its inhabitants, we don't really know much about the main part of our world, do we? The Oceans. There we are, always on about space, the final frontier, but our final frontier are the oceans. We can live in space, well, a few of us, but humans can't live under the sea, only in sci-fi films.
