The UN Demographers 2017 bi-annual report on population is out

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 06:53:00 GMT


https://esa.un.org/unpd/wpp/Publications/Files/WPP2017_KeyFindings.pdf
https://www.theguardian.com/global-development/2017/jun/21/world-population-to-hit-8bn-in-2023-says-new-un-survey

A quick skim suggests projections haven't changed much compared with the 2015 report.
- Linear growth +83m/yr
- 24 years for last +2b = +1 every 12 years
- Currently 7.55b
- 9.7b in 2050
- No peak this century
- Main growth from Africa / India / China.

The pages at http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/ haven't yet been updated to suit but the projections look broadly the same. eg 8b in 2023, 9b in 2038, 10b in 2056

There's the usual rider from this observer. This analysis is based on business as usual continuing as long as possible and certainly out to 2100. It doesn't take into account any Limits to Growth style instability or non-linearity.

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 07:25:00 GMT

There's about 5 miles of the M4 around Reading where you get to see a medium sized wind turbine (still big) over the Green Park (home of Ecotricity) and then a fairly large solar farm on flat land. I suspect both of these are part of the Green Marketing Board's activities. In the same way that hovering kestrels by the side of the road are sponsored by the RSPB and Tourist Boards.

What I've yet to see is solar panels over a pig farm rather than sheep grazing. Pigs are prone to sunburn so need a certain amount of shade which would seem to make them a natural fit. But maybe they're too destructive. The solar panel supports and cable would have to be as pig proof as a Pig Ark. Which means there's an obvious dual use case here. Solar Pig Arks!

Which for some reason brought to mind those VIP coffin kennels that rich people hire at Glastonbury. Solar Pig Arks with built in USB chargers that can double as both upmarket festival shelters and refugee shelters for the coming crisis. There's money to be made here. Quick, check Alibaba!

I need some help here in understanding where Labour is now

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 06:40:00 GMT



There's a story being distributed that I've seen several times in the last few days. The Labour surge among those under 45 is from people "who weren't alive during the 1970's to experience first hand the results of policies now espoused by JC". This got pushed during #GE2017 as "Corbyn will take the country back to the 70s.". The suggestion is that the current Labour Manifesto is a repeat of the disastrous policies of the Wilson/Callaghan government. Or that it's the same position as Michael Foot's opposition.

I think this is a right wing Tory lie being spread to limit the potential damage from a centrist social-democratic alternative. Corbyn's policies look extreme "Left Wing" only in relation to the extreme right wing that is now considered normal. The Overton window has been pulled so far to the right that a position like Heath's Tories or even John Major's is now portrayed as dangerously socialist. The policies of Thatcher, Blair/Brown, Cameron/Osbourne have been normalised.

What I don't have is the analysis and understanding of the 2017 manifesto compared with the positions of mid-70s and early 80s Labour. How similar are they, really?

A time line.

In case you haven't seen it. A breakdown of last Thursday's vote

In case you haven't seen it. A breakdown of last Thursday's vote.
http://lordashcroftpolls.com/2017/06/result-happen-post-vote-survey/#more-15330

Note especially the parts about Tory-Labour and Brexit Leave-Remain. There's a clear split 2/3 Tory voted Leave. 2/3 Labour voted Remain.

Also this, among others.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/election-2017-40229786/jeremy-corbyn-the-draw-for-young-voters

2 working days in and we're into the stats analysis blame game. Again.

It's young people wot did it. Or the Remainers. Or University Towns. Or London. Or Working class in failed industrial towns. Or Social Media.

Media Bias
The press were biased against Jeremy Corbyn's Labour in the election, study finds https://www.indy100.com/article/media-bias-jeremy-corbyn-theresa-may-express-sun-daily-mail-labour-conservative-7785776

And that's just the print media.

Let's not forget Kuenssberg's "Shoot to kill" out of context quote, BBC Trust reprimand and then viral promotion by the Tories.

TV were masters of the snide remark, knowing smirk, "of course we all know he's unelectable" sub-text without coming right out and saying it. Even Channel 4 did this at times.

Then there's Farage. Constant attention and coverage, despite it resulting in UKIP ZERO.

But you know this.

-

Anyway, the bullshit is coming so thick and fast that a week can go by and you've completely forgotten the previous omnishambles as if it never happened.

This Tory car crash has been going on for at least a year now.

Thanks Farage!

Anyway. Here's a quick summary of Mrs May's "New" Bigotory cabinet.

That was weird. MS Defender found this

Sun, 21 May 2017 13:21:00 GMT


https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/security/portal/Threat/Encyclopedia/Entry.aspx?Name=Trojan:Win32/Fuery.B!cl which is a very non-specific possible threat found by heuristic analysis. Except it was found in a 2006 Delphi project executable built when I was messing around with winamp API programming. It seems very unlikely that something I had done recently had infected a random .exe in a file written and built by me many years ago on a previous machine. I then ran a full scan and that's all it's found.

So I'm inclined to treat this as a false positive but have still wiped the directory.

A Tory Rally vs a Labour Rally

Tue, 09 May 2017 09:49:00 GMT



Now which one did you see on the 7pm news? That's right, neither of them. Because Theresa May doesn't do rallies in public and the media don't report on Jeremy Corbyn.

BTW. That Labour Rally is Leamington Spa. A Tory marginal with only a 6000 majority.

The world's global population hit 7.5b people today. Probably. According to the UN

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 16:21:00 GMT

The world's global population hit 7.5b people today. Probably. According to the UN.
http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/

We reached 7b in 2011. Under 6 years ago.

When I was born it was 2.7b
https://www.theguardian.com/environment/interactive/2011/oct/24/how-big-worlds-population-born

We've had 5 decades or so of constant linear absolute growth. +80m/yr. 12-14 years per +1b.

If business as usual keeps going at this rate, we'll hit 10b round about 2050. In 2015 the UN predicted 2056, but with each 2 year report they revise it closer.
