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.

I watched the McLaren video, it was fascinating how detailed their early stage of the design actually is.
The building of their 'new' plant is a magnificent piece of construction. Bet it cost a dollar or two!

around the world, another aspect was cleanliness
which the big chief insisted upon, i describe it as
the first call of order which then leads to efficiency. :wink

Truly, truly GD!

The plant looked so immaculate that it could be mistaken for a restaurant where you eat of the floor.
I think that "The Greasy Spoon" restaurant has got to take notice of it!

Hey, those cars were above the average price tag at LStg160,000 or did you indulge in one?

But there must be lots of buyers if he wants to turnout 80 cars a week. The cars looked fabulous and capable of great speeds with certain comforts.
Must all be going to the Royals, they've each got enough to afford a week's car production!
