The last interglacial had less ice, higher sea levels, and warmer temperatures than this one. So, according to the evidence so far, human activity must have a COOLING effect.

Well the technology of the airbus is beyond me, but the technology of this video is getting that way too. All this new-fangled touchscreen stuff on mobile phones is more than I can cope with. :twocents-mytwocents:

Lynny, in 2050 there won't be any more luggage. You'll just press a button and you'll be refreshed with new clothing, hairdo and all the hygiene products you'll need!

:heeheehee :heeheehee :heeheehee

I hope there won't be a malfunction when I'm halfway through my ablutions. :oops:

(I'll be 107 and past caring - just realised. :biggrin:)

Don't give up yet, lynny, they may find a pill to extend life well beyond 100 years.

Not sure if I really want to be around in 2050, that's a long way to go! :character-oldtimer:
