An example of SCA would be to charge to the accounts of, among others, the Oil industry the costs associated with global warming as a result of burning oil and oil derived products.

  1. Postcode for the unimpressive end-terrace in Ely is CB6 3BZ.

    For Ely Waitrose it is CB7 4QJ.

    AA route planner distance is 1.3m.

    Not far away at all and so one asks oneself if the Green Warrior fat twat practises what he preaches and waddles there to collect his victuals, or does he fire up the Volvo?

  2. The only costs associated with global warming are the trillions spent globally combating it. In the real world, we’re seeing no increase in frequency or intensity of extreme weather events and crop yields increase year on year. The oil, gas and coal companies should probably be getting tax rebates for all the positive benefits they deliver economically, socially and climatically.

  3. ‘the costs associated with global warming’

    Which equals the cost of feeding the unicorns.

    ‘as a result of burning oil and oil derived products’

    Why would you burn oil derived products? Plastics, asphalt, etc? Murph not being specific enough.

    “When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.”

    Lewis Carroll predicted Murphy.

  4. “oil, gas and coal companies should probably be getting tax rebates for all the positive benefits they deliver economically, socially and climatically.”

    What is it now? A billion people in China and India lifted out of poverty primarily because of the access to energy sources and what that enables them to do.

    All that energy being provided by coal fired power stations.

    What price does Murphy put on a billion Indian and Chinese lives?

    “What price does Murphy put on a billion Indian and Chinese lives?”

    I’m sure he can empathise in a “Dachau” sense.

  6. SCA doesn’t exist. What we have is 9 pages of extremely vague drivel that provides absolutely no information on how to actually do SCA.

  7. isp001 – yes, company mostly sells the oil and its products to people and businesses and governments who then use them.

    Hey, under his idea do the water companies get charged over water vapour, or do people and other companies get charged over water vapour?
    Very bad for global warming that water in the atmosphere. Lots of people cook and have hot drinks. Have baths and showers. Water the garden.

  8. DocBud,

    I posted something like this a week or so ago but it must have gone in to spam so no links this time.

    Roger Pielke Jr has done a lot of good work on this, of course dismissed by the likes of Mann in ad hominem attacks.

    The real test, though, is insurance. These guys have skin in the game and the last I read was that they just starting to wonder if the should be worrying and that appears to be more about the political noise than the data.

  9. BiND, the reinsurance angle is worth a sniff, if anyone had the time. For insurers, bad times are good. High premiums although the risks are only marginally higher. Swiss re tried, for some reason, to shift the market mood a few years ago, riffing on climate change and Pope F. As soon as above normal returns are declared by Swiss Re, the wider market undercuts.

    At the same time I wonder why my car insurance quotes are 30 % higher than last year.

    The insurance connection has a lag which is difficult to perceive, unless you go with a long established house that does not move premia markedly up and down on an annual basis. Do such firms still exist? Has compare the meerkat driven them out of business?

    “or does he fire up the Volvo?”

    Has the Tuber ever said what kind of electric car he drives? If not, it’s almost certain he doesn’t drive one, adding another layer to his hypocrisy.

  11. One day, we put Polly in black leather with a hood and bit and harnessed her to a trap. Richard drove her to Downham Market and back. He is very accomplished with the whip. He gets the right results

    Work around: omit https://www eg youtube.com/watch?v=D1i0HiDG7G0 – Andrew Neil destroys Pro EU journalist on BBC`s `This Week`[/url] – 4th July 2019

    How many chins can you count? Ear looks weird too.

    Another Fatty telling us how to live – Lady Nugee’s sister?

    Well done Flint, Neil and Portillo for attacking & shredding her blinkered EU worship

    Like Corbyn socialists she is wealthy and knows the EU socialist, green agenda will not affect her – but forgets “until they come for me”

  13. “Postcode for the unimpressive end-terrace in Ely is CB6 3BZ.”

    Yea gods, is that was passes for architecture nowadays? I think I’d go mad living there.
