From A La Mode to Outmode in Six Months

Although I've been listening and watching reasonably carefully to election news I have yet to hear the words 'climate change' or 'global warming' pass the lips of any of the three men the media are insisting should be the next prime minister.

It's only six months since hundreds of believers poured over the North Sea to Copenhagen with the intention of ensuring the world's politicians signed up to the great carbon offset scam. They believed the evidence put before them.

Some will say climate change belongs to the Green party and they haven't had a national platform. I would disagree. Climate change is not only promoted by the Greens but by all political parties. All have promised to spend millions, maybe billions, of our money on climate change 'projects'.

As I've said before I agree with some of the Green party's policies; some are plain common sense but there are too many people who are sceptical of the claims of the massive climate change lobby and yet, during this election, the subject hasn't been mentioned.

Is the complete blackout on the subject of climate change because people may begin to investigate the carbon credits scam more thoroughly and realise how foolish we are to believe it?

It would certainly seem the three begging for the keys to No 10 have come to an agreement not to mention it at all. Rest assured, once Thursday is over, the subject will rear its head with voracity. Our political masters must keep that 'special relationship' with the Al Gores of this world.

By coincidence EUReferendum has a post related to carbon credits.

It is reported elsewhere that Germany, Australia and the US have shelved their plans for signing any agreements for the time being.

Yes SR it has gone quiet. When the dust has settled and we are having all our assets flogged off and services cut just remember the guys in charge of the Carbon Disclosure Project will be knee deep in champagne and caviar. Names in that frame? Brown and Balls.

To put in place measures to counter climate change at this time is inappropriate for a number of reasons and the fact that a number of sensible governments concur with that is heartening. I am yet to be convinced that climate change is happening the evidence for it is very shaky indeed. I also believe the measures advocated that should be put in motion to counter climate change have not been thought through properly. Coupled to which many of the worst emitters of CO2 are showing no real commitment to decreasing those emissions.

So until the evidence for climate change is irrefutable and the causes are fully understood then the policy should be to do nothing. Knee jerk reaction has already given us wind farms that are very unsightly, not as efficient as they were purported to be and add prohibitive costs to energy generation.

I am ambivalent about climate change, though not of the blackmail they seek to attach to it - but more important, have our troops been stood down in Afghanistan.

Has a cease fire been negotiated while our political establishment struts its muck?

Or is that another piece of debris swept under the politicos magic carpet?

Incoming, you sent a shiver down my spine with your comment. Too near the bone perhaps?

subrosa said...

Antisthenes, they can't do nothing. The carbon offset business is a billion dollar business and needs to be fed.

But I agree with your every word.

RA, I am in the throes of composing a post about that which I will now publish tomorrow. Sadly a soldier has been killed today.

There are lots of subjects which haven't been discussed like how can we afford a 'green economy' in a recession? Is that you in the middle?

subrosa said...

That's why they won't discuss it DL.

No I'm on the right - but do remember it was nearly 20 years ago and there's such a thing as gravity.
