A Disappointing Scene
Last week it was disappointing to see Alex Salmond welcome to Scotland the former US vice-president, in his capacity as the world's climate change guru.
Obviously environmental issues need to be discussed, but to invite Al Gore to talk at the Scottish low-carbon investment conference merely shows the Scottish government need to progress with their environmental policies rather than listen to a somewhat discredited Yesterday's Man.
There's little doubt Mr Gore has become a multi-millionaire on the back of the carbon scam and he continues to produce his false science to the world. Thank goodness there are those who are prepared to examine his claims with a fine toothed comb. (The link is a lengthy read but very worthwhile).
How I wish the Scottish government would withdraw from the carbon scam, stop filling our lovely countryside with giant turbines which produce little long-term employment and begin to use our expertise in the renewables field for the benefit of the people. The only 'benefit' bestowed on us at present are ever increasing utility bills - and we are the only oil producing country in Europe.
