    • Yep! I always thought I got that because the account I had then was Marrisota but when the marriage issues happened and back in 2015 when I was initially trying to get this all sorted out the “debt” paperwork was all JD Williams - aren’t they the “parent” company?   I will check the dates.    so do I stop paying while I do all the paperwork? 
    • Even though I’ve been paying them for this long?    I know you’re going to say something along the lines of “because they’re a bunch of muppets” but why are they doing this as if I’ve not been paying?   dx - I took the name and address out for privacy...
    • you didn't pay lidls the speculative invoice charge of £45.   the only connection to them is their head office signed their region up to have their local stores car parks managed by the scammers because they had been duped into thinking people that abuse their car parks cost the region xxx in lost shopping revenue because another shopper could have used it.   they never see any of the money these bandits gleam from people paying a speculative invoice off ever and annually get ripped off by paying the fleecers £10'000 each year to give them permission to manage their carparks. anyone that pays the money goes directly into the parking fleecers pockets.   however i understand you are new and green but part of a forum is also self help which relates to my comment about where did you ever get the idea to pay them from...certainly not here.   so lidls wont be doing and can't do anything further, they certain wont be interested in instructing their fleecers to refund you and can't and most certainly won't refund you themselves.   go do a chargeback   dx              
    • OK,  I have not claimed anyone told us to pay in this forum.   As grown up adults we made this decision. I am sharing our experience in case it benefits anyone.    Our approach to this is if Lidl didn't help at the end we would take our shopping elsewhere and the so called reduced charge of £45 paid would be the end of the story, even if is unfair.    As I mentioned Lidl cust. service already emailed us to confirm that they have contacted Athena to cancel the charge, I'll first follow up with Lidl. If not resolved will resort to chargeback.  
    • no one ever said PAY THEM, you never ever do that.   if you paid by debit card go get it back by a chargeback to your issuing bank.

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

If your house is less than 50 feet above sea level, a tidal and wind system might be a better investment.

 

But no - I'm not at this stage suggesting there will be a 50 feet rise in sea level any time soon --- yet.

If its less than 5 feet above sea level - I would move - if I could sell it.

 

If the gulf stream continues slowing or even changes completely - it will get quite a bit colder here again despite overall average temps up beyond 1.5 degrees, and 50 degree temps becoming common events around the world. Australia among others is VERY nearly there already.

 

We will be seeing effects that are touted as 'hoping to avoid' 'end of the century' effects within the next 9 years.

I agree with king12345 completely, king there is no point having a discussion with Tobyjugg as he knows everything, he is a genius and a mind reader he knows everything about everything, in fact he is so clever he could most probably give you the winning numbers for the lotto, next week.

 

 

An article was published on the 40th anniversary of the first World Climate Conference held in Geneva in 1979, by 11,000 scientists which warned about an impending global warming climate emergency.

 

It presented a series of graphs of “Change in global human activities” and climate response time series” from 1979 to the present”. date from just after National Geographic and others declared the world would freeze to death with a global ice-age; based on the same type of date from previous decades.

Scientists constantly change their minds; their will always be regular patterns and cycles, including periods of cold and heat.

 

Questioning the motives behind the academically funded global warming alarmists is not a conspiracy theory; it is simply asking why we, as taxpayers, should help fund their vain ambition to play God?

Record breaking temperatures ..

 

 

Yet we are currently at the solar minimum of a long stretch of solar minimums - fact

We should be experiencing abnormally cold weather - yet records on temperatures are being broken - and we are at the cold part of an extended cold cycle

 

We should be skating on canals and rivers but instead tehre are record breaking temperatures across the world.

NASA – Next Solar Cycle will be Weakest in 200 Years

 

September 5, 2019 by Robert at Ice Age Now

NASA dropped this bombshell announcement in a little-heralded news release coyly entitled “Solar Activity Forecast for Next Decade Favorable for Exploration.” In other words, NASA tried to make it sound like good news.

In the release, dated 12 June 2019, NASA described the upcoming decline in solar activity as a window of opportunity for space exploration instead of acknowledging the disastrous consequences such a decline could wreak on civilization.

Here are some direct quotes from the news release:

The Sun’s activity rises and falls in an 11-year cycle. The forecast for the next solar cycle says it will be the weakest of the last 200 years. (Emphasis added) The maximum of this next cycle – measured in terms of sunspot number, a standard measure of solar activity level – could be 30 to 50% lower than the most recent one. The results show that the next cycle will start in 2020 and reach its maximum in 2025.

Sunspots are regions on the Sun with magnetic fields thousands of times stronger than the Earth’s. Fewer of them at the point of maximum solar activity means fewer dangerous blasts of radiation.

The new research was led by Irina Kitiashvili, a researcher with the Bay Area Environmental Research Institute at NASA’s Ames Research Center, in California’s Silicon Valley. It combined observations from two NASA space missions – the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory and the Solar Dynamics Observatory – with data collected since 1976 from the ground-based National Solar Observatory.

In admitting that solar activity during sunspot-cycle 25 could be the weakest in 200 years, NASA was effectively forecasting a return to Dalton Minimum (1790-1830) conditions. But the release gives no mention of the ferocious cold, no mention of the disastrous crop losses, no mention of the ensuing starvation and famine, no mention of the wars over food, no mention of the powerful earthquakes, no mention of the catastrophic volcanic eruptions during the Dalton Minimum.

NASA Paper is HERE

Some people consider the low solar activity a trigger for other catastrophic events such as the 1811-1812 New Madrid Fault Earth Quakes and 1815 eruption of Mount Tamboura.  As you can see from this chart global cooling produced some strong eruption.

Volcanic activity

for those who dispute the NASA et al findings on the sunspot cycle and its effects

Perhaps read this before looking at the latest ones:

https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/sunearth/news/solarcycle-primer.html

 

 

Should be straightforward as the reports of the effects expected from the sort of sunspot cycles that are occurring is precisely what those climate science deniers like Farage have used to claim the Earth is entering a period of cooling ...

... and it should be

... but isnt - and we are seeing record breaking temperatures ... which is the point

 

 

Just imagine what will happen if the Sun suddenly flips back into a more 'normal' let alone one of its more high energy periods ...

Using NASA's conservative analysis to show where we approxamately would be without human driven climate change in 2010

It has accelerated since then:

 

Consider that in 2010 NASA estimated an average 0.7 degrees C increase in global temperature, yet just 10 year later - the NASA conservative estimate is 0.9 degrees 😄

 

 

The second reason that scientists think the current warming is not from natural influences is that, over the past century, scientists from all over the world have been collecting data on natural factors that influence climate—things like changes in the Sun’s brightness, major volcanic eruptions, and cycles such as El Niño and the Pacific Decadal Oscillation. These observations have failed to show any long-term changes that could fully account for the recent, rapid warming of Earth’s temperature.

Finally, scientists know that carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas and that it is released into the air when coal and other fossil fuels burn. Paleoclimate data show that atmospheric carbon dioxide levels are higher than they have been in the past 800,000 years.

Australia experienced its hottest and driest year ever in 2019, according to official data by the Bureau of Meterology (BoM).

The annual average temperature was 23.32C - which was 1.52C above the long-term average between 1961-1990.

The country is also in the midst of one of its worst droughts, with new figures showing the average rainfall for last year was at its lowest ever - at just 277.63 millimetres. 

 

Australia has seen its hottest year in 2019 with the average temperature reaching just above 23C

Doesn't mean those with sense have to jump to your fanciful tune though does it?

 

Want to scientifically (rather than extreme ideologically - if anything) dispute the NASA figures and reasoning, which include the stuff Farage et al used to claim the earth would be cooling ....

Go for it.

Neither have I. I have shown a mail report

 

But NASA has declared a reasoned and evidenced report on Global warming, and the BoM on the temperatures and effects in Australia.

Do you dispute NASA's (and many other leading scientific bodies) figures on the effects of the sun on the temperature and that the evidence shows we should be in a quite pronounced period of cooling?

When have you EVER answered a straight question. I'm simply not playing with your attempts to derail the presentation of actual quality evidence from the most distinguished and credible sources..

 

 

So you cant dispute Nasa's (and other leading bodies) findings?

I thought you might try albeit without any reasonable justification or evidence

 

 

So, do you dispute that the Earth is warming, despite the quality, detailed and compelling evidence demonstrating it should be cooling?

Hint - look at the graphs for compelling largely irrefutable evidence as presented by leading scientific bodies ...

Now some of you may recall I said that there are going to be accelerated effects going into the current solar maximum expected to be around 2023.

 

I'm sticking to that despite the latest NASA projections saying that the upcoming solar maximum is going to be as low or perhaps even lower energetically than the last one - which was already low - with only around half the expected high energy sunspots.

 

God help us if the Sun flips back to its 1950 levels rather than its existing exceptionally low levels, and really does add to the global warming - enhanced by the greenhouse effects of the current levels of Co2, Nox, methane and water vapour.

Current Carbon Dioxide Levels Are Their Highest in At Least 3 Million Years

"It seems we're now pushing our home planet beyond any climatic conditions experienced during the entire current geological period, the Quaternary," Willeit said in a statement accompanying the study's publication. "A period that started almost 3 million years ago and saw human civilization beginning only 11,000 years ago. So, the modern climate change we see is big, really big; even by standards of Earth history."

There will always be arsonists, sadly.

 

From what I've read, their PM didn't want to take advice from fire experts on how to tackle fires in this, their summer. He didn't lease firefighting aircraft which are the most effective way of fighting forest fires or make any other plans.

 

The affected regions of Australia has had very little rainfall so once a fire takes off, it has tinder dry countryside to rip through.

From Melbourne Australia.

(my nephew family and his brother  lives their, I asked about the fires this is his answer)

 This is probably the worst fires I have seen in all my time in Australia. We have had two other instance of big fires but this one takes the cake. There was talk that the Victorian fires might combine with the NSW fires which would be catastrophic. I had also read that the fires are so big that they have started to create their own weather with a large quantity of smoke going up in the air in one area creating thunder storms in other areas which is sparking more fires.

Sadly these fires are not started accidently. One person has already been caught for the fires in East Gippsland and another one in Bundoora. The Bundoora one is a bit closer to home and really close to my brother’s house. His family and him had to evacuate their home, they said that the heat would have got to them first before the smoke which is why they had to evacuate as a precaution. Thankfully he was able to return that same day back to his home. MY brother and his family are only 20 mins away from us and the fire is probably 10 mins away from our house by car. This fire is still burning but is under control, Thankfully it rained today.

Thankfully the fires that are of real concern are 5+ hours’ drive away from our home. The Prime Minister is getting a lot of heat for not acting quickly enough.
