Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Does anyone have the statistics comparing the number of wildlife deaths due to windmills v. due to oil slicks each year?

How is a Cat an anthropogenic cause of bird deaths? Unless we're talking of the act of keeping cats and birds in the same house as pets, of course.

That data would also be best displayed as a pie chart, since it has been rescaled.

you have realised by now that I have not produced any of the graphs I display here and there, and thus cannot do anything about their zero-scaling, or formatting, or other display imperfections - which , if I may add, I am usually aware of, but ignore when the information provided is good enough.

Should I provide all the relevant mathematical critique each time? Those that care about these things will do it on their own anyway.

They hate you too: I asked.

I don't really care.

(Actually, dogs just love to come to me and go all sloppy and slobbering - please love me. I see that you are not touched by my doggedness (doggyness?), but please love me anyway - with these big mournful eyes. So I get punished for my sins alright)

Now we know why you don't smile.

Know who else hates pets?  Serial killers.  You're probably planning to chop us all to bits with your windmills, aren't you?  No wonder you don't want us to drive.  Makes it harder for us to get away when we're on foot.  Here we thought, "Wow, this nice Frenchman wants to lend us a hand with our energy problems..."  When you were just gaining our confidence so you could chop us up and bury us under your creepy city with the rest of those creepy skeletons and take over our country, probably.  And you wonder why there's a French bias in the press.  Sheesh!

I can live with that...
