Re: The KGV and Adm fuel signals on May 26 and 27.

Anybody who has read Kennedy's book, can only be amazed by the amount and accuracy of well-researched information packed into such a small book. To imply that Kennedy made up a story is almost comical. Kennedy created a master piece, using a novelist's language and story line to represent a wealth o...

Re: Can the German Navy Be Saved?

Germany has flushed billions down the drain and hamstrung its own economy through its Energiewende policies. All this has proven futile and has always been unnecessary. It boils down to priorities. Germans economy is hamstrung??? Just a 2-minute online research: * The German economy grew 2.2 percen...

Re: Direct Hits received by H.M. Ships on May 27

Wadinga et al., there is one simple rule at internet forums: DON'T FEED THE TROLLS. How to recognize a troll? For example, simply be the frequent use of specific symbols like " :think: ". (Actually, this symbol is called "think"; isn't it ironic that it is used by people who do c...

Re: Political correctness gone mad?

This is such a ridicolous statement, it is unbelievable. You obviously don't have any idea what peer-reviewed science is, and what peer-reviewed journals are. Have you ever published in a peer-reviewed journal ? (I did, more than 20 times; it is my job; not in climate studies, this is not my field)....

Re: Political correctness gone mad?

I've a science background, and I myself worked in the oil industry. Checking facts, judging scientific reasoning, separating unfounded opinions and superficial pseudo-"knowledge" from the essential and firm foundations was and is my daily bread, because in the real and serious world (outs...

Re: Political correctness gone mad?

RF: You are the one who is trolling and reverting facts by 180 degrees, and by doing so, give a perfect example of Orwellian truth-twisting. The critics in this thread are solely on your (and similar) statements that certain topics (like climate change, or AGW) are a dogma and "somebody" (...

Re: Political correctness gone mad?

Gentlemen, Being of a different (older!) generation I am at a loss to understand the politically correct ideas that are now bandied about these days. But the techniques shown by Orwell are put in practice in most countries in varying degrees. One current example is AGW or ''climate change'' - here ...

Re: West vs East

Indeed, many hold to the same view of socialism as Winston Churchill: Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. I still don't get it. You like the article, so I understand that you - like the author -fin...

Re: West vs East

If one likes black and white thinking, and prefers phrases and headlines over some insight, than he or she might like this article. But to anyone else it is just the expression of the opinion that "socialism" is evil. Actually, the DDR was considered as a communist regime, and all non-sovi...

Re: The Brits want out of the EU

Wow, fantastic. Now UK can be "independent" again, whatever that means in a globalized world. But the important thing is that narcissists like Nigel Farage can have a laugh, right? It will be interesting to see how the extremely diverse and robust UK economy will now rapidly grow. Maybe it...
