Brilliant, you've gone from a British company, to a part British company. Now take a close look at BP.
And again, as I've said in different threads on ATS, regardless of the nationality of the ownership, the company itself is not a British company,
i.e. it is not owned by the British government.
The anti-British sentiment carrying through a lot of these BP threads is unjustified and undeserved. the British people have as much to be angry
about with BP as any American although a lot of them wont realise this until the Gulf stream starts to wash the oil up on Cornwall's beaches.
Another side effect that concerns me (although i don't have enough education in this area to be certain) is as follows.
The biggest threat to from global warming to the UK would paradoxically be the onset of an ice age across northern Europe. This would be caused by
melting polar ice cap altering the salinity of the gulf stream causing it to stop. This would then halt the warmer currents coming from the US which
currently prevent the UK from freezing.
I pose a question to anybody in the know, and offer a scenario to the UK members who show little concern for the current events as follows.
How much oil needs to b deposited into the gulf stream before the same desalination effect causes it to stop?
