DrFumblefinger visits the Yukon Transportation Museum in Whitehorse. The Museum features the history of transportation in the territory, with many examples of the machinery used to develop this wild land.
It's a great feeling to see the sun rise twice in one day. Feels like you've cheated and won ! It's one thing I don't like on the times I've travelled on the Dreamliner. The Captain decides when it should be daylight and clears the window glass electronically. I miss the rainbow of colours as the sun rises.
A beaver on public property would likely be "trapped" and relocated. A beaver on a farmer's private property would probably be signing his death warrant. As my uncle told me when facing this exact situation, "nothing a 22 can't take care of".
I would love to visit this area and see the amazing displays. Where I live the Ice Age sent Glaciers south from the Arctic Circle. Massive rocks found underground have their origins traced back to hundreds of miles further North. The Lake District and The Pennine Mountain range (through the centre of England) were carved by glacial action. Global Warming saw the Ice-Age retreating before mankind had any influence.
We have local rocks that were moved hundreds of kilometers by the glaciers as well. For example, this local collection of rocks is known as the Okotoks erratic, and measures up to 40 m. It was transported here by the glaciers that completely covered Alberta thousands of years ago. Global cooling really terrifies me. Sheets of ice covering much of the planets land are not compatible with life in those areas.
Wise thoughts Dr F. Many of the life changing events in the history of this planet occur around the time of Volcanic destruction. Mini Ice Ages caused by the sun being blocked from view by the airborne ash that covered the planet. Krakatoa being the most recent eruption. 13,000 times greater than Hiroshima. So severe that the explosion could be heard around the world twice as the sound and ash travelled in all directions. Much easier to blame mankind's excesses. Here in the North of England...
The consensus appears to be that English wine was finished off in the 19th century by a combination of diseases and changes to the tax regime, not by a sudden cooling or anything of the sort: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...m_the_United_Kingdom The varieties grown then were quite different from today's - and the majority were lost when wine production declined, possibly for good.
“The Romans wrote about growing wine grapes in Britain in the first century and then it got too cold during the Dark Ages. Ancient tax records show the Britons grew their own wine grapes in the 11th century, during the Medieval Warming, and then it got too cold during the Little Ice Age. The Little Ice Age is a period between about 1300 and 1870 during which Europe and North America were subjected to much colder winters than during the 20th century ." Wikipedia refers to the production of...
No, the Wikipedia article covers much more than that - and even refers to grapes being tried by the Romans in Lincolnshire. You forgot to attribute your quote to Dennis Avery and you did not quote him in full. He goes on to claim that "it isn't yet warm enough for wine grapes in today's Britain". This is manifestly completely untrue. I don't want to get into a discussion on climate change here - you clearly are in another camp on that issue.
