    KDave got a reaction from Roy in Sovereigns colour   
    Welcome buddy, this has been asked before. In summary the older coins included metals other than gold and copper plus oxidisation over time gives them the colour. The new ones are near pure copper/gold alloy, hence why they look like a 15mm pipe off cut imo 
    I don't know why the mint doesn't just put some silver in them like the yanks do with their coins, much nicer colour when silver is included and good durability - best of both worlds.

    I'm not a Dent fan either, but to be fair to him, he does have one thing right, which is that one of the major factors that influence future developments is demographics. Everybody gets older at a rate of one year per year and this is not going to change, so the future distribution of people by age is entirely predictable. Most western countries are about to tumble over the demographic cliff as the baby boom generation retires and this will have major consequences. Dent thinks that the next financial crash, when it comes, will result in a huge deflationary bust that will send all prices, including gold, downwards. This will only be true if governments and central banks sit on the sidelines and do nothing. We know from experience that they won't. Their response will be to print money and reduce interest rates, and they will keep doing so until price inflation is restored. This will be positive for gold, not negative.

    CO2 levels have been dropping for the last 100,000,000 years. Depends on your timelines huh ?;)
     
    Anyway
    https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/data-access/paleoclimatology-data/datasets/ice-core
     
    Trends
    Over the last 800,000 years atmospheric CO2 levels as indicated by the ice-core data have fluctuated between 170 and 300 parts per million by volume (ppmv), corresponding with conditions of glacial and interglacial periods. The Vostok core indicates very similar trends. Prior to about 450,000 years before present time (BP) atmospheric CO2 levels were always at or below 260 ppmv and reached lowest values, approaching 170 ppmv, between 660,000 and 670,000 years ago. The highest pre-industrial value recorded in 800,000 years of ice-core record was 298.6 ppmv, in the Vostok core, around 330,000 years ago. Atmospheric CO2 levels have increased markedly in industrial times; measurements in year 2010 at Cape Grim Tasmania and the South Pole both indicated values of 386 ppmv, and are currently increasing at about 2 ppmv/year.
    and graphs that show it really seems to depend on your perspective and more importantly your starting point. The earth itself will be fine, of course throughout time.

    The solar cycles though will have to be taken into account and it does appear we may be heading into a solar minimum that may have a greater effect than any previously in human recorded history.

    I think psychologically it is much easier to accept man made global warming because it can be controlled, which is why the accepted narrative is accepted. If we changed it once we can change it again, and in doing so governments can extract taxes, control behaviour and favour one industry over another. It fuels an entire industry of 'science'. That is why it is so attractive to all parties invested in it. It is also a great source of altruism which is a very attractive thing for human beings - "look at me saving the planet" .
    The irony is too good. That the climate we are trying to change by controlling various emissions is being changed by the sun.

    Interesting that you mention the Grand Solar Minimum.  I too believe that this is going to set the cat amongst the pigeons.
    I've spent a considerable amount of time watching speeches by physics Nobel laureates and actual hard science scientists who are of the opinion that CO2 is not a key driver of global warming.  Many of these silenced voices have very solid arguments (and data) against the theory and some even complain that their names are being published against their consent on the IPCC list of concerned scientists.  Publishing large lists of names to bolster a claim backed only by looking at selective data is not hard science it's politics.  The science is certainly not settled as they keep asserting.  Some are caught up in this hysteria and others are simply promoting it to get rich quick on carbon credit schemes.
    If these dissenting voices are right and the consensus sellers are wrong, the solar minimum will destroy their argument once and for all.  It would make the EU carbon tax scheme completely redundant.  This will likely be the time that things will fall apart for the EU as their revenue stream dries up.  We as Brits must not be used to fill the financial gaps and perpetuate their existence.
    The EU is an unelected body that's stolen all of our democracies.  They're currently taxing us without representation which goes against the very tenet of democracy.  They managed to keep this a secret for a very long time with their phoney parliament but the truth is out there now.  Was it all well intentioned to start with?  Possibly, but it doesn't matter now.  It has morphed into a giant multifaceted beast that seeks total control and cannot be reformed.  It all comes down to whether one wants a giant socialist superstate that controls everything or whether one prefers the natural order of the nation state and people looking after their own destiny.
    Mankind will only ever be ruled under one umbrella by force.  It's not a good destination which is why I believe we must cease funding the EU.  No deal.

    i have come to terms with the GSM some years ago. What i banked on was a freeze in more northern latitudes for 30 years - i all but sold up and went a long way south. If what Valeria Zharkova and other who have collectively studied this comes to pass, the cold is going to deepen over a couple of centuries, an eternity for us, not a bump in the road. A massive cull of people is inevitable.
    So the authorities cannot spill the beans - imagine the chaos. If this little speech were to be broadcast by Mrs May on the 10 o'clock news law and order would go out the window.
    Dear People,
    i know i have lied to you about Brexit and just about everything else, but this time i'm telling the truth. Global warming is a scam. Blame Maggie Thatcher, she wanted coal fired power stations gone to beat the miners and things got carried away. We are heading into an ice age. Most of you will either freeze to death or starve to death. There will not be enough food to go round. We haven't planned to store food, it is going to last a few hundred years, so most of you will just have to snuff it. We want most of you to die anyway, you are useless eaters. We've filled the country up with foreigners and stoked up resentment, so when the time comes there will be riots and then we will be justified in having round the clock curfews and shoot to kill on sight policies. The police will follow orders because their families will be fed. i will continue to make broadcasts from the Cayman Islands were it's warm and i have my money stashed.
    Have a nice Christmas and a Happy New Year
    Love Mummy May xx

    Last month a mathematics professor and astrophysicist at Northumbria university, Valentina Zharkova made a presentation last month which set the Grand Solar Minimum prepper community on fire.
    As i remember @PansPurse said he studied astrophysics. Anyway Prof Zharkova presented data coming from a mathematic model of the Sun's activity which shows that Sunspot activity is going to zero. When Sunspot activity is plotted against the climate on Earth we see these coincide with very cold climate, mini ice ages. Her data shows we have entered the mini ice age. Now there is also other confounding events such as the orbit of the Earth around the Sun is getting dragged out by Jupiter and Saturn which are pulling the Earth i heard something like a million miles further way. There are other factors which i need to study some more but what they mean all together is it will get much colder and in the very near future - this winter is going to be bad. The summer of 2019 could well be the last 'summer' we will see in our lifetimes, next year will have poor crop yields and the 2019 winter will be the real kick in the teeth.
    Now this is not something out of the blue. i have been posting comments about this Grand Solar Minimum for quite some time - it could even have been a couple of years. i notice people like Roy have picked up on it. The story about anthropogenic carbon dioxide and Global Warming, now re-titled Climate Change, this is a flat out lie. The majority of people have been suckered into this psyop and are not in the slightest prepared for the coming years. As i have mentioned before the already started Global Cooling is going to kill billions of people. We saw record low temperatures for Thanksgiving on the East coast of America - the CO2 liars and lunatics would like have you believe this is all to do with carbon dioxide and Global Warming. Commonsense tell you this is BS.
    i was listen to a recent video discussion on youtube - White House Releases Climate Change Report & It's Really Bad - The Sun is Going to Sleep
     
    A website i have looked at before http://www.deagel.com has a section on economic projections. The UK is lauded as the fifth biggest economy in the world - this i find unbelievable but at any rate the projections by Deagel for 2025 show the US and European economies falling off a cliff.
    http://www.deagel.com/country/ - Current Data
    http://www.deagel.com/country/forecast.aspx - 2025 projections
    The UK goes from 6th according to Deagel to 47th.
    The population, GDP and per capital income crash. This will mean the country will be nothing like it is today. One might ask where the people disappear to. Do they run away to warmer climes? Do they die in civil unrest as food shortages kick in? - i would not like to be in a big city when the shelves at Tesco et al are all empty. Social benefits and pension will be cut to the bone. The FTSE 100 will collapse - so your personal pensions will collapse. It is Third World status in a hurry.
    i realise there will be people who dismiss this - people who mock but nevertheless i keep putting this out on the forum. If one person does some research for themselves and grasps the nettle then i have achieved something.

    From what I can see the only moves left are;
    1. Stay in the EU under May's deal, parliament votes it through and the UK becomes EU province 28. 
    2. Parliament votes down May's deal but then rules out hard Brexit. Revoke Article 50 and Stay in the EU under current terms (at a cost) or put it to second referendum.
    3. Have another Referendum with 'take the deal' (stay in the EU as province) or 'stay in the EU' (at a cost) as the options on the paper. Revoke article 50 Ask EU to rejoin or stay under May's deal.
    4. Hard Brexit on march 29th. If nothing is sorted, no second referendum (May did rule it out but that means nothing), Remainers in parliament do not manoeuvre to block hard Brexit. Enough politicians see the writing on the wall and push to leave on WTO terms. I think this is very unlikely given how things have gone. If nothing gets done, Parliament will beg the EU for extension after March 29th and pay through the nose for it and kick the can down the road until they can work out another way to keep us in. 
    The ability to leave the EU has been reduced to a distant slither of hope in hard Brexit as far as I can tell, which most do not want due to project fear 2.0. The odds are good that we are staying in one way or another then. The establishment has paid a high price though, I would think the only thing comparable damage trust wise would be the bank bail outs 10 years ago.

    If May doesn't get the deal through it should mean hard brexit on March 29th that is the only option left that is on the table for leaving the EU. However I think Martlet is right and such an event would be the opportunity to revoke article 50 or a second referendum or some other mechanism as an attempt to stay in. In other words a complete betrayal of the referendum and last national election results and UK democracy will take a hit far harder than any hard Brexit. It would not surprise me in the slightest.
    Revoking article 50 would be suicide for any politician that votes for it though. It would also be national suicide as the EU would have all the say on our position for getting back in and would make an example of us far worse than any hard brexit. They have been trying their hardest to punish and make an example of us for the past two years I don't know why people have not worked it out yet. Stockholm syndrome I guess.
