Re: The Climate Change agenda

U of A has been fighting the freedom of information request for 7 years, but the courts ordered these sets of emails released. They became available earlier this month.

Therefore, even assuming that the Type 284 set was switched on exactly at 05:37 (PoW "enemy in sight") and that 20 minutes are an "average" sufficient time to ...

Re: PoW's gunnery VS BSM's gunnery

Regarding the German radars and Jasper not mentioning them. The German radars were data linked directly to the fire control computers. Jasper would not monitor the radar data stream. Regarding If Type 284 was working or not. There are a few things to consider. The NT99 Micro Pup transmitting triodes...

Re: PoW's gunnery VS BSM's gunnery

Regarding reliability and reception issues I think it's important to realize that those who may be familiar with electronic performance today might not fully appreciate exactly how unreliable and unpredictable old-style type-type electronic devices were. The units were complicated to fix, and repai...

Re: The Climate Change agenda

Re: The Climate Change agenda

but the anti-AGW people don't have real science to counter the harsh reality of AGW, so they just cherry-pick to find things that "prove" their point. How would you know? You have demonstrated that you don't know much about the science of this issue. This must be why instead you engage in politiciz...
