|The last decade was the hottest in history|
at 20:54 8 Jan 2020
Last year was Earth’s second hottest year on record, with the decade as a whole the warmest in history, the European Union’s climate monitoring service has said.
Data released by the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) found that the average temperature in 2019 was only a few hundredths of a degree below the record 2016 level.
In Europe specifically, 2019 was the hottest year on record, the EU‘s climate service said. Within the decade, Copernicus also found that the five last years were the hottest on record for the planet.
“These are unquestionably alarming signs,” Copernicus director Jean-Noel Thepaut said.
Global temperatures in 2019 were 0.6 Celsius hotter than the average in 1981-2010. Additionally the last five years were 1.1C-1.2C warmer than the pre-industrial era.
There's a lot more in the article.

This is at 10 tonight, please watch it if you can bear to because it's hard viewing. And this isn't to do with party politics because both Labour and the Conservatives have let these children down.
If you don't see it tonight, it will be on the C4 site later, fair warning, it's easier to watch a horror movie.
How in our lifetime did we end up with 4 million (four million?!) children in poverty like this where they are going hungry? This isn't families not being hard working, or not being responsible parents, or spending money on crap instead of food and housing. It's just wrong.

|Nominate a charity to donate to.|

We had a thread about this last year but I couldn't find it.
Nominate a charity that deserves a few pounds, explain why, provide a link or an address.
|What's your points forecast for October?|
at 13:10 3 Oct 2019
There are five matches this month and everyone starts with 3 points for the win at Charlton.
We now have a sequence of matches against lower ranked teams: Stoke (home), Barnsley (away), Brentford (home) and Cardiff (home).
I think we'll win the first three and draw against Cardiff to get 13 points out of a possible 15 and Cooper to be awarded Manager of the Month again.

|FREE Charlton ticket|
at 21:27 29 Sep 2019
UPDATE. This ticket has now been taken. There were five responses.
I have a Charlton ticket but am now unable to go there because of a (small) family emergency. Send me a message and I'll be happy to post it to you tomorrow by 1st class post. Please put whatever you think that this is worth into a charity box somewhere.
Absolutely gutted, because I've a feeling that we can win this match.

"Strikers on a shoestring"
What the eff is a shoestring? Is it like a guitar string? Or a string of pearls? Or are people just stringing me along?
|Who was elected to the Trust Board?|
at 17:51 4 Aug 2019
Just got an email from the Trust discussing Co-opted Vacancies on to the Trust Board. However, I haven't received any email about the Trust Board votes.
Presumably it's been announced on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, but I'm not on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook.
Thanks for any update.

|What Should Be A Realistic Points Target for August?|
at 17:25 20 Jun 2019
We have six matches in August, but what should be an acceptable points target for them? Personally, I think that 9 points would be a very satisfactory start to the season.
Last season we won only one of these fixtures and got just 5 points out of a possible 18.
Hull (Home): 2-2 (1 pt)
Derby (Away): 2-1 (0 pt)
Preston (H): 1-0 (3 pts)
QPR (A): 4-0 (0 pt)
Brum (H): 0-0 (1 pt)
Leeds (A): 2-1 (0 pt)
5 goals scored: 10 goals conceded.
