For a considerable time I've been reading EU Referendum and its sister blog Defence of the Realm.
As many of you may know Richard North has, for the past months, been investigating the adventures of Rajenda Pachauri, the chair of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change). A David and Goliath story right enough!
For anyone interested in the climate change debate they will know Richard, along with millions of others, was called a 'flat-earther' by our Prime Minister in addition to the honorary title of 'deniers' give to us cynics by the climate change lobbyists.
I do not doubt for a moment that the climate changes. My doubts arose from the now ridiculed claims such as polar bears would be extinct before we knew it and the Himalayan glaciers would be melted by 2035.
Richard North has shown one blogger can take on an international organisation and with considerable success. May I congratulate him for his tenacity and his exposure of the myth that our behaviour is the single cause of climate change. Yes, we do need to continue to reduce pollution, but it is also our responsibility to ensure our political representatives know we are not prepared to fatten the wallets of those who have pedaled these fables. It's time our government stopped using our money in this manner.
Should the tories be elected in May, they must arrange further debate on this issue. Will they be courageous enough to face up to the evidence which now unfolds?
