    Let's hope the culprit(s) are caught and the jewels returned safe and undamaged. Some people beggar belief :-(

    Any word on the Crown Jewels?
    That would suck if they were melted down and sold as raw gold.
    Although there can’t be a huge market for a country’s treasure.
    I hope they are returned to Sweden.

    They should resurrect the 'eye for an eye' punishment for this crime alone...

    could happen, the problem is that it is awfully difficult to predict.

    if i were to count the failed predictions of climate change... that list would be long!


    that said, summers will get hotter over-all, according to most scientists.

    Yes, and it would be preferable that this one doesn't come true. I've read too much SF where it is the case not to want it to happen for reals, and not to leave that as a world for my child.

    agree, everything related to good health is worth a vote.

    Yep..that would be sad, we recently this week have had news reports..based on Swedish scientists research and warnings, or if it is a global scientist sharing of some other results...
    Web translation from swedish to english..
    https://translate.google.com/transla...orden-till-ett

    Itīs the Stockholm Resilience Center (SRC)

    And by the way...Ivé always been afraid of sharks..I blame Spielberg on that one
    In sweden we do not have many animals to fear, but it seems scientist are warning for that it is maybe just a matter of time before white sharks may surface within the region of Danish waters, and probably near Swedish south coast..which is near denmark.

    White shark has been spotted around Britain it seems..
    https://translate.google.com/transla...haj-i-skane%2F

    Some errors in the translation, and white shark is called vithaj in Swedish, and Bad guest doesnīt mean you are a bad guest, bad is bath in swedish, so it should be bath guest.
    And I was planning on visiting denmark and skåne for a bath this summer..due to the hot summer, but I dont know.
