SHOULD we abandon all thoughts of cleaning up our planet?
Global warming, we are told, is responsible for December’s record rainfall and devastating floods in the north of England and Scotland.
Global warming as we all know is entirely due to man’s unparalleled use of fossil fuels, the internal combustion engine and flatulent cows. Only the cessation of the use of coal and oil and the building of a zillion ugly wind farms will save us. . . oh and the introduction of more and more ‘green taxes’.
I looked back on my records and noted that just five years ago, the UK was experiencing a record cold spell, with temperatures reaching minus 20ºC in many places.
I am no scientist, but I know a man who is, and he tells me that with man’s total contribution to climate change at less than an estimated 4 per cent, not only will our feeble efforts have no noticeable effect on the world’s weather patterns, but these changes will happen anyway as they have at regular intervals over millions of years.
He and a fraternity of scientists around the world have produced a mountain of evidence over the years, showing that we should be spending our time and efforts into developing protection against what is to come and learning to adapt to natural and inescapable climate change.
But regardless of the facts, this attracts little publicity after all, it is heresy to contradict the established thinking on such things.
Should we then abandon all thoughts of cleaning up our planet? Of course not, but let us examine all of the evidence available for the good of Mother Earth, and make informed and sensible decisions about the proper way forward.
Just as there are powerful vested interests who wish to silence the Green lobby, so too are there equally powerful and political interests desperate to blame our changing climate on the activities of Man.
Who was it that said: “If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”?
Oh yes, Adolph Hitler.
