More and more evidence shows the science behind global warming is nothing but hot air. Yet, do we hear embarrassment or remorse from the climate change alarmists who seem hell=bent on bankrupting the economy in much the same statist ways as the far left did before them, no. They are still preaching about the end of the world and the need to chuck bad money after bad to the renewable energy industry, whilst taxing us through the roof in green taxes. This is all at a time when the average Briton is struggling to make ends meet. Unfortunately thanks to the Climate Change Act of 2008 the scandal is we are spending loads of money on a problem which may not even exist.
Thankfully, there are some people in Parliament including David TC Davies MP who are prepared to speak out. Today in a debate in Westminster he will be calling for the Climate Change Act of 2008 to be radically overhauled. If you would like to attend to hear the debate in person details can be found here.
The premise is that man-made C02 emissions which make the earth heat up causing global warming. According to conventional wisdom this is correct. However, conventional wisdom ignores the following facts. From 1940-1970 at a time when the world was industrialising at a fast rate and C02 was being emitted into the atmosphere in large quantities the world was actually cooling by 0.2%. Indeed in the 1970s the New Scientist was panicking about global cooling bringing about a new ice age. In some years the Thames froze over. You would have thought if the present day Jeremiahs were right about global warming that during a period of industrialisation the earth would be heating up, but precisely the opposite happened. It’s when you look at cases like this that you start to realise that the science behind global warming has more holes in it than Swiss cheese.
Then there is the fact that since 1997 when we have plunged headlong into green polices that have restricted our freedoms, reduced jobs, robbed taxpayers and undermined manufacturing global warming has actually stopped. It shows that the climate change models predicting warming from 1997 onwards are wrong. Yet these are precisely the models used to support the Climate Change Act of 2008 and the green policies it has helped enact.
There is one final piece of science, which should act like a nail in the coffin of the climate change alarmist industry. In 2007, as part of their green agenda, the BBC reported that by the summer of 2013 the Arctic would be ice free. We
ll we’ve now gone past the summer of 2013 and the Arctic is still icy. Indeed, as the Daily Mail Article by David Rose points out here thanks to a particularly chilly Arctic summer nearly a million more square miles of ocean have been covered with ice than at the same time as last year, an increase of nearly 60%.
All proof points to the fact that climate temperature naturally increases and decreases and we should adapt to this, not economically bankrupt ourselves at the green altar of global warming. The Climate Change Act of 2008 must now reflect this and stop ignoring the evidence.
