As an aside. I though double mooring was not happeneing, and signeage was going to altered accordingly ( taped over I guess?) , but they were double moored all the way along Horning Green, and bows rammed together and crossing over each other at the pubs. The little dyke for small boats and day boats at The New Inn had 3 large hire boats crammed in too.  Frown  

Really worrying Karen.


No social distancing and this is the result.   Try telling the brain dead to respect distancing.   Good luck to you.  They and they alone are spreading this disease.

“As we haven't been toany public moorings, can anyone confirm if the  BA signeage been amended , or not? “

As far as I can ascertain, no amendments have been made. Not on the 24 hour moorings I have used recently anyway.

BA signs at Reedham have "No Double Mooring" taped over the usual info
Was at Acle Bridge earlier but did not go as far as the signage.

I think you’re missing the point Pally with your cartoon.
Over 25% of electricity is generated from renewables and this is increasing every year. Also there is a greater opportunity to capture pollution from power stations than cars/boats, so electric vehicles are the future.

But ,
and most importantly the thousands of pro electric vehicle promoters very conveniently forget the monstrous ecological impact caused by the raping of the environment in the mining of the materials to manufacture the batteries needed for electric propulsion , these batteries utilise highly pollutant chemicals and elements which will at the end of their relatively short useful lives create a massive problem with their disposal.
The green energy farms also cause damage to the environment , the wind turbines harmful to the local bird population , solar farms , the panels again use harmful toxic heavy metals in their manufacture and are already raising red flags as to their disposal .
Sometimes green isn’t as clean as it pretends to be

CC is absolutely right and in addition many of the metals snd minerals used in the production of batteries for electric vehicles are conflict metals (look it up) Cobolt for instance is in such short supply that companies are turning to place like the Congo where mining is controlled by rebels using amongst other things, child labour and the profits from the sale of these goods are being used to fund the rebel forces.
The environmental impact is also imense with companies taking to raping the Ocean and Seabeds to meet the demand.
As for renewable energy? Thousands of acres of agricultural land is being covered by Solar panels to meet the Governments figures and we are having to buy more and more food from overseas to make up for the shortfall from our farming industry. Offset the carbon footprint of flying/shipping goods from all iver the World against the Carbon saving from renewables and the picture doesnt look so rosy.

if it is to be it is up to me.

CC & TT you sum up our views and concerns there, precisely. Green is not always as green as it pretends to be, but it sure speaks the langauge of profit. We often discuss the very points you both raise, and to be honest it's depresssing at best, anger invoking at worst.

It also seems to us that it is typical of some folk these days to hone in on a subject and preach about it from one angle only, typically ignoring the bigger picture, and/or facts that don't support their assertions. I'm not referring to anyone here, this is just a general observation. I've argued with younger members of our own family for example, who suddenly pipe up with some current issue or topic, without knowing any wider facts other than those peddled in a news article or in their student world for example.
