Green's in a Twist

Tim Worstall has written a great piece on the latest report by Friends of the Earth on climate change effects and cost.

Do read the post yourself, but Tim shows just how woolly much of the thinking and number crunchig can be behind these so called 'studies'; the subject of many of my recent posts.

In fact his conclusion that we should do nothing is surely the opposite of what those writing the report wanted to happen.

You wonder if they even read their own report through properly. I did a Master's degree myself and if my thesis (which incidentally was on the idoicy of the UK joining the ERM) had the lack of coherent logic of this report I would still be re-writing it today!

Surely you've seen the icecap melting on TV and can understand the impact this will have on our environment. I saw Tony Juniper speak in the summer and he told me that if Labour did not put through a Climate Change Bill in the next Parliament, they would do so themselves as they had so much cross-party support.

I am not denying climate change at all. Just pointing out, via Tim, the poor development of this paper.

Weak efforts like this only aid those who deny climate change.

I want rigourus reporting.

1/ Ellee place an ice-cube in a glass of water then mark the water level.

Leave the ice-cube melt, then mark the new water level.

The water level will be lower.

2/ Do you know how much CO2 is in the atmosphere it's a lot less than you think.

3/ CO2 is described as a pollutant. Can you think of any other pollutant who's absence would starve all plant life?

Anthropomorphic Climate Change is a con trick.
