Outrage outrage...


You may recall the following paragraph from my post earlier this year; I have copied it here to keep the links: "Remember the science is settled? Remember there is consensus? Remember drowning pets and exploding children? Remember being told not to eat meat or the Inconvenient Truth and Al Gore's Nobel prize?

Today Christopher Booker asks us to 'Look at the graph to see the evidence of global warming'. You may think 0.08C over only 15 years in quite a lot if it continues at the same rate...but "But the 0.5C rise between 1976 and 1998 was no greater than the 0.5C rise between 1910 and 1940 (with 35 years of cooling between them, so that the net rise in the past century has been only 0.8C).

The UK government's Climate Change Act (what's Miliband minor doing now, anyone?) will probably cost 15 to 20 billion quid a year; the whole national energy policy - and the coming power outrages - is based around it.
"Yet it was on that modest rise in the 1980s and 1990s that the whole of the greatest and most expensive scare in history was launched on its way, with all the terrifying political and economic consequences we see around us today... ...The price we are all increasingly having to pay for their gullibility is incalculable."
