    The data Lomborg gives is based on the IPCC results and on Nordhaus work (Nobel Prize). No distorted data, being shouted by ideologues completely dominated by hatred and ideology, can be compared to...

    The best thinking about this, IMHO, is by Bjorn Lomborg, see starting at 5:00 approx.:

    What we need to look is pros and cons. For sure there will be some cons. Water level will increase in some places. I believe the Dutch are pretty good at building dykes, so I guess we can quantify...

    Being an ignorant about climate forecasts, what surprises me is that there are so many people using a "scandalized" tone of writing about feeling warmer than in the past, but then when you read what...

    The best cars to buy now are good cars of the era in which still we had manual transmission everywhere, etc. These cars have still most of the necessary amenities, e.g. air conditioning etc and they...

    Not a brand, but a manly characteristic in a car: manual transmission. Of course, many men drive automatic transmissions. Maybe myself, one day I will be forced to drive one. But a manual...

    I did not explain myself well. I said that as a Catalan speaker I cannot understand anything, by helping myself with Catalan (i.e. Isabelle's language and Catalan are clearly different), as opposed...

    Interesting! Is Auvergnat still spoken somewhere by young people? Or is it a language condemned to disappear in a few decades?

    Occitan is (was!) spoken throughout a big area. Occitan, then, consists of a series of almost unintelligible dialects (what is a dialect and what is a language is just a political decision: look at...

    I drink a small glass of red wine, with a good lunch, maybe once every quarter. My father still drinks one per day. Apart from that (and coffee), just water.

    Your comment is inconsistent. In the OP, there is nothing stating that it refers to current cars, you speak about brands, and brands are not only current cars, but also old cars. In fact, I would say...

    Every day I discover something interesting in this forum ... it is wonderful to live in this age of new discoveries.

    I disagree completely with this classification.

    Peugeot, Citro├źn and Renault are basically identical type of cars.

    The Lancia Delta Integrale is probably the most masculine car ever.

    The idea of self-reported quality of life is bogus. An example: in Spain, healthcare is completely free (exception: dentists). Spaniards take this for granted. Spaniards that have never lived abroad...

    Nassim Taleb makes the argument that IQ tests do not need to measure intelligence per se. For sure, they measure unintelligence (but as Taleb argues, many crude measurements would also do that).

    In fact, Occitan and Ligurian are both spoken in Monaco and in some parts of Italy. Geographically, it makes all the sense in the world. Now, Catalonia is more spread towards the south, but the...
