Longyearbyen

by duncanr

for more than 70 years, not a single person has been buried in Longyearbyen

Should anyone die there, the government . . . requires that the body is flown or shipped to mainland Norway to be interred

this is because of the region’s year-round sub-zero temperatures: Bodies don’t decompose, but are preserved, as if mummified, in the permafrost and there are fears a melting permafrost – because of climate change – will uncover these bodies and revive ancient diseases

Free Sex !!!

by duncanr

Yup, free sex – straight up !!!

That’s the offer from prostitutes in Denmark – but only if you are a delegate attending next week’s UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen

Local mayor had cards printed and distributed to hoteliers asking them not to facilitate meetings between delegates and local prostitutes.

The girl’s – who were looking to earn a bit more cash in the run up to Xmas – are a bit miffed.

Prostitution is legal in Denmark and the girls see the Mayor’s action as a discriminatory step – one intended to prevent them earning a living. In response, they are offering a free fuck to punters who can produce a badge proving they are a delegate at the conference.

Source . . .

Hhmmm, as a headline grabber offering free sex guarantees publicity about their gripe with the Mayor. Not sure how it helps them generate more income, however – unless it’s part of a BOGOF (buy one, get one free) offer ???

Pssst, Barack Obama announced yesterday he has decided to attend the last day of the Conference !!!

According to a spokesperson, the decision . . .

“reflects the president’s commitment to doing all that he can to pursue a positive outcome”

So there you are – last minute decision to attend the conference has got bugger all to do with the offer of free sex !!!

Too much sun= human cull

by duncanr

sunA report in 2007 by the conservative Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predicted a rise of between 2C and 6.4C this century.

The environmental changes and the knock on effect of those following a global rise in temperature of 4C have led some scientists to predict only 10% of humans would survive such dramatic climatic change.

Some scientist believe we could see such a rise in temp within the next 50 years.

Gulp !!!

We’re doomed. Doomed, I tell you. Doomed !!!
