Congratulations go to David Davis, who appears to have singlehandedly found the way to split the British Conservative Party for good, by coming out as a Climate Change sceptic, and thereby effectively challenging David Cameron for the leadership (which Davis will lose, like he did the last time, I reckon) :-
He writes :-
“The row about whether global warming exists gets even more virulent. The case is not helped by the fact that the planet appears to have been cooling, not warming, in the last decade. Last week, the row was fuelled after a hacker revealed emails between the world’s leading climate scientists that seemed to show them conspiring to rig the figures to support their theories. So it is unsurprising that more than half the public no longer believe in global warming.”
“Cooling, not warming” ? Well, I’ve go some very old news for you, David. It requires you to open your eyes and accept the naked truth : what looks like cooling to you is clearly just temporary variation in the broad scheme of things :-
“Davis defended himself against accusations that he is a climate-sceptic, calling for the development of a “middle way” for tackling climate change built around micro-generation technologies, nuclear energy, greater focus on adaptation and geo-engineering solutions such as maximising cloud reflectivity.”
The “middle way” ?
The Earth is showing signs of hitting the top end of the projections for Global Warming. I hardly think a moderate response is called for.
