I help lower the CO2 in the atmosphere by driving my 5 litre supercharged Jag only 3000 miles each year. :)

I may join the Green party. :)
3000 miles a year, I'd hate to think what that is costing you in depreciation.

So would I so I don't check. :)
Obviously not important to someone as wealthy as you. But, having said that, if you own it you we should drive it.

Our Lord Opti could recruit OOFers to give his Jaaaag a spin now and again to keep it in tip top, as he obviously prefers the staid mighty Signum!  :)

Bagsie next week!  :y

Much quicker following the remap by Viezu.

570 BHP and 530 ft lb torque.......through the rear wheels only. Great fun. :)
Can't see two wheels being able to put that down.

On anything other than hot melted tarmac it struggles. :-X

In the wet it's like Bambi on ice. :-X

Needs four driven wheels really.

My Mondeo lifts it's nose and spins the front wheels quite easily.  We should swap and compared notes.  :)

Wrong wheel drive for  a car with a reasonable amount of power and torque.

Although Nick W will tell you the yanks shoved 300 BHP and 500 ft lb through the front wheels back in the sixties and seventies.

The tyres were three foot wide though, that's why you could only travel in a straight line.

I bought a bunch of daffs in Asda this morning. On January 13th.
Grown in England, it says.  ;D
Oh dear  ::)
 what or who where you caught doing to warrant such an extravagant expenditure as way of an apology  :-\
such items are grown in huge polly-tunnels in the UK ,hence the expense 99p  :o
So are most of your veg...  ::)

no, just wimpy narrow 15" tyres. Which was a step up from most of the common muscle cars on 14s.

Yes google Adra, Southern Spain. Ghastly tasteless veg. Of course after Brexit they will be either from huge new ploy tunnels in UK ( about a third) . Rest will come from elsewhere at a price of course.( or you can keep getting them if the EU can fish in UK waters!)

I thought they were about 1400KG.

Utter nonsense. We quite happily already import a significant amount of food from outside the EU...

I'm not clear on why you insist that, given as you are a Spanish resident, Brexit is the Apocalypse... ???

Global warming is real not imagined. :)

Two useful warming periods in the 20th century & after our 2016 super El Nino we are now on a sun cycle cooling trend with the last 3 years getting progressively cooler. This will continue for the next 3 x 11 year sun cycles (25 to 27) until 2053 (when Lord Opti celebrates his 300th birthday! :P). The period 2028-32 are going to be very cold with widespread northern hemisphere crop failures. After 2053 we will continue with our global warming as part of the sun's 400 year solar cycle as we increase the temperature by another 2-3degC to continue our recovery from the last ice age and reach the Earths last 1 billion years average temperature. CO2 cycles follow temperature where the hotter the climate the less CO2 the oceans can hold. This lag varies from 5 months (local warming effect) to 800 years ocean temperature increase, where the warming or cooling takes a very long time with the oceans vast thermal capacity.

The difference between a sun warm period & a cold period is about 1.5w/m2. Our climate is driven by the sun, cosmic events, Milankovitch cycles, volcanic activity, tectonic plate continental drift and their resultant ocean currents.
 
What has helped STEMO is that they will have been grown in a poly tunnel with CO2 levels artificially increased towards the C3 plant photosynthesis sweet spot of 800ppm, so they grow faster & bloom quicker. Agricultural profits work on one cost triangle: Cost of growing: Cost of heating v cost of CO2 injection v cost of growing time. Cost harvesting quadrangle 2: Cost of picking v cost of packaging v cost of transporting to market v EU CAP taxes & quotas and this will decide where the cheapest / most profitable place to grow them is.
