Roger Lewis and David Malone: One Interview To Unite Them All.
First of all, I’d like to introduce the interviewer Roger Lewis (left) who was, to me, most unexpected in his approach, the interview was no love in and he was not afraid to challenge David on the basis of his own views and outlook, for example on Brexit. I only know Roger through the blogosphere and the first surprise to me was his appearance. I’d imagined him as the type who went to bed in a suit and tie and only slightly loosened his collar when the temperature exceeded 35 degrees celsius. Instead I was confronted by a sanitised version of Catweasle! Long flowing locks and moustache, I hope he’ll forgive the Catweasle reference, casual clothes but a razor-sharp mind. There was an obvious chemistry between the two so even in times of disagreement there was no shouting across each other, both were able to make their points informatively.
This Interview was over two years ago, it was the previous Summer which I spent assisting David with his Leadership bid for the Green Party of England and Wales,
There has been a lot of water flowed under the Ye Olde Pont since then, as they say, and if a week is a long time in politics then the past 4 years has been an Eon, certainly, some sort of warp in space-time or maybe a paradigm shift has occurred.
From my first comment on Davids Blog and since I started reading that Blog after following a reference to it from Sturdy Blog which was a staple of my reading at the time, Davids approach has always been one of encouragement and inspiration.

Hi there, now you are as angry as myself, the biggest financial scam in history. Great statistical research you have there. You might be interested in checking out David Malone’s blog, author of “The Debt Generation” it is a goldmine of relevant information concerning this subject & others relevant to it. Thank You for your efforts.
I started Blogging more seriously after a discussion on Davids Blog which led to both My Epic Poem Usury Hells Fuel, as well as the MMT Chainsaw man cartoon and another friendship with Wesly Freeberg.
David and I occupy separate sides of the debate on Climate and in Bills blog here I just note what a pleasure it is always to chat with David even when we do not agree.

Everybody Is Wrong About Everything. (Except Me)
The Green Party Climate Change Bit.
On Climate Change and The Spectre of Green Party Stalisnist denier Gulags, I have been busy fighting a rearguard action for quite some time now against a climate of Climate Activist religious topic sliding.
Anthropocentrism, Capitalism, Carbon Man, Climate Change, Consumerism, Culture of Addiction, Doomsday Preppers, Evolutionary Dead End, Extinction of Man, leonard Nimoy, Madness of Modern Civilization, Nihilism, Overpopulation, Romanticism of Indigenous Cultures, Sociopaths/Psychopaths, Suicide, Techno-Utopians
When past predictions of future catastrophic events like ice sheet melt, spreading tropical diseases, and forest fragmentation start to become reality while no substantial means to prevent them from happening has ever been implemented, you begin to question the phrase so often bandied about that “it’s never too late.” It was never too late decades ago and we’re still holding out on that hope. Despite any techno-utopian fantasies you hear in the news, economic activity and growth are still linked to CO2 emissions. Until this fundamental truth is dealt with, we’ll all be spinning our wheels and wringing our hands over our continued descent into ecological and societal collapse. Perhaps this is part of the reason I have not blogged recently. As Leonard Nimoy expressed in his last twitter message, I think I’ll try to enjoy the here and now while I’m alive…
Please read/circulate. Thanks. This is perhaps my most-significant yet contribution to the emerging discourse around preparing ourselves to face up to potential climate- and societal- collapse:
That is aimed at the obvious forum sliding taking place on Dr Tim Morgans Blog ingroup bias there is of the Climate Religion sort, ingroup bias on this thread is Monetarist, John and I had a dialogue live on Skype. read or watch here. https://t.co/myszLYGgXX #GrubStreetJournal

Climate Science 1; There is No “Greenhouse Effect”
This video is the first in a series which will outline the scientific reasons why a new null hypothesis of climate change is needed, and what is wrong with the current one, which assumes a 33c surface enhancement from the so-called “Greenhouse Effect” of “Greenhouse Gases”. it will be shown that there is another cause of this surface thermal enhancement, and that the so-called “Greenhouse Gases” cannot be responsible for it. The ‘greenhouse effect’ is where a 33c atmospheric thermal enhancement at the Earth’s surface, is alleged to be caused by a class of gases called ‘greenhouse gases’. I will show, in this series, that the claimed 33c enhancement from those gases does not exist. YouTube Tip: As usual run at Settings; Playback Speed; Times 1.5

Climate Science 2; There is No “Extra Warming” to Explain
This the second in my Climate Science series debunking the greenhouse effect. Climate Science 1 revealed that our atmosphere is not like a greenhouse; instead it’s the exact opposite – it’s capable of expansion and convection. Here we explore the science and the climate cycles which the IPCC forgot to mention, and how they are totally controlling all current climate change. We find that there actually is no ‘extra’ warming that we need to invoke a supposed ‘greenhouse effect’ from CO2 or other ‘greenhouse gases’ to fill. Correction to CO2 forcing at 9:42 it is 0.01W/m2 not 0.1W/m2. YouTube Tip: As usual run at Settings; Playback Speed; Times 1.5 References; Shaviv, N. J. (2003).

Climate Science 3; There is No “Greenhouse Effect” on Venus Either
This the third in my Climate Science series debunking the so-called ‘greenhouse effect’. Climate Science 1 revealed that our atmosphere is not like a greenhouse; instead it’s the exact opposite – it’s capable of expansion and convection. Climate Science 2 explored the science and the climate cycles which the IPCC forgot to mention, and how they are totally controlling all current climate change. We find that there actually is no ‘extra’ warming that we need to invoke a supposed ‘greenhouse effect’ from CO2 or other ‘greenhouse gases’ to fill. Climate Science 3 looks into the claim that Venus is hot because of the ‘greenhouse effect’ of carbon dioxide. The calculation I did for Venus at 11:30 also works out for Titan, (another body with a surface pressure of over 1 bar). I have done it here; Titan Tt =∜0.01089 x Te Tt = 0.323 x 288 Tt = 93 Kelvin This gives the calculated temperature on Titan at 1 bar as 93 Kelvin. Measurements by the lander Huygens in it’s descent trough the Titan atmosphere, show that the temperature at 1 bar is around 90 Kelvin. PLEASE! I did not say that the bottom ~4km of atmosphere of Venus is a ‘liquid’ or a ‘solid’! It is a super-critical fluid.
