Ed Backs Green Party-Style Purge of Climate Change Sceptics

At PMQs Ed went on the attack over Owen Paterson’s sceptical comments about climate change. The line of questioning reminded Guido of the Green Party’s recent totalitarian demand for a purge of climate change sceptics from ministerial and adviser positions in government. A Labour spokesman has confirmed to Guido that Miliband backs a similar ban.

“The qualification for being in a Labour government is rationality and believing in clear scientific evidence.”

Anyone working in a Labour government would be required to accept the party’s position on climate change. Anyone who doesn’t won’t be allowed to join. Dissenters will be exiled…

          Surely the default position on climate change should e one of scepticism?

          We know that the climate changes – it has as long as the planet has existed. However, we do not know the causes of the changes, nor their pace. Not so long ago we were told that our children would not see snow in their lifetimes.

          In the past there have been very large changes occurring very quickly eg the end of the dinosaurs. More recently the coming of the last ice age killed mammoths where they stood. Similarly the reassertion of the Greenland icecap killed off the farmer settlers in less than a generation. The human race seems to be quite good at surviving sudden changes in temperature and floods eg the flooding of the now named English Channel. However, bigger events like huge volcanic eruptions and collision with large asteroids see have a much bigger impact of species survival. Just where we are at the moment we do not know., and the whole position could be changed by an asteroid or large comet.

          The left is up to its old tricks of attributing an absurd position to sceptics, by labelling them deniers: a sceptic is a sceptic and a seeker after truth.

        It’s customary for scientists to look again at their hypotheses when results contradict their predictions.

        All we’re hearing is a repeated mantra in the face of data contradicting all predictions.

        But the experts don’t all disagree.

        Climates change. Always have and always will. In the distant past CO2 levels were higher than today for example. They fluctuate. Temperatures in one place can fluctuate, year on year, by up to 4 degrees.

        The question is how much is caused by man? Here the “scientific consensus” (not that consensus should have any place in hard science) breaks down. Many disagree how much is from man and how accurately such a thing can be measure. Nearly all think it possible man is contributing through greenhouse gases.

        Next question is how important is it. Richard Lindzen, MIT professor and an expert in the field has often pointed out that slight changes in temperature and CO2 are not anything new.

        Antoher question is what can we do? While China builds another coal power station every month or two, will Ed Militwat destroying British industry with green regulation actually help? No, it will just excite the bedwetters who read the Guardian.

          Your last paragraph is very important. Unless the other major countries like China, Russia, etc commit the same priority to climate change as we have been forced into then it is like, say, putting up flood defences in the Somerset levels but ignoring them everywhere else. Bonkers!

          And just putting up flood defences is equally bonkers if the Liblabcons continue to allow uncontrolled immigration which puts pressure on planners to allow houses to be built in areas liable to flood.

            “ The “spokesman” on the tv last week said he couldn’t understand any objections because it’s “free energy”.”

            All energy is free. It was all created at the Big Bang. But collecting energy and concentrating it into a useful form costs time, money and effort.
            Fortunately, nature has done much of the collection and concentration for us.

            For example,
            Fossil fuels are solar energy collected by photosynthesis which was conducted by plants over geological ages and is available as compressed and dried material.
            Biomass is solar energy collected by photosynthesis which is conducted by plants over a few growing seasons and is available as uncompressed and wet material.

            With the exception of hydropower there is no possibility of ‘renewables’ replacing fossil fuels and nuclear power. In reality, the reverse happened.
            Wind power, solar power, and the muscle power of animals and slaves were displaced when the greater energy intensity in fossil fuels became available by use of the steam engine.

Perfect grounding for discussing hard-science matters!)
        There are 21 MPs with PhDs, most in history, philosophy, english etc. It seems that only the irritating Cycle-maniac Julian Hippert (Lib-Dem) and Therese Coffey (Con) have science doctorates, both Chemistry. Speading further out, there a few engineers, a couple of medical doctors and the female Vaz was a microbiologist–but I can find no physicists, geologists, hydrologists or climatologists, although the stimulating Gloria de Piero used to present the weather forecast on GMTV.

      Monocultures are easily wiped out by a single dose of appropriate treatment. In the case of Parties who tote the Party line of so-called “Global warming” like the man in the sandwich board warning “The End is Nigh”, in due course the crowd twig that the bugger is deluded. The longer it continues, the greater the elimination of our economic advantage. Which, looked at rationally, is the only logical reality behind the fervour to eradicate CO2 from emissions.
      Like all quasi-religious movements though, there is usually a “grand reckoning” when the penny finally drops that it has all been a political lie to extract unimaginable amounts of tax revenue from the people under the camouflage of saving the World and our children.

        I grew up in Birmingham. Raised Catholic, I had to traipse up to church every Sunday. At the time there were six full masses on a Sunday. 400 or so people per mass. Three full time priests.

        Johann Lamont said last night that she & Ed were very close & that he loved Scotland as much as she.I don’t suppose he understands a word she says so just grimaces & nods.

        She also said live on STV that Scots are genetically programmed to not take political decisions. How incredible is that?She’s more stupid than Ed which takes some going.She’s being ripped to shreds all over social media as she richly deserves.

        With a Labour leader like that within Scotland we don’t need anymore help from Westminster.Hopefully she has done so much damage we will never see a Labour government in Scotland.

          You do have to hope not.

          Fucking Scotland will do fine on its own. After all, as they constantly remind us, they’ve got oil.

          I’ve said all along that the Little Scotlanders aren’t the problem (although it does get a bit tedious being racially abused). The far bigger problem in an independent Fucking Scotland is Labour making all kinds of promises with all that oil money and, with the institutional and cultural expectation of lots of free stuff, spending a century of oil revenue buying votes for the next five years.

          If Fucking Scotland can just free itself from Labour it has every chance of making a great go of independence. If not then it is utterly fucked.

          Not a gamble I was prepared to hang around for.

      Millysenko is purging anyone who questions man’s impact on climate as being anything other than catastrophic. This is not the scientific consensus, nor is it rational. Even the 97% ‘consensus’ and the IPCC questions/adjusts it’s expectation of man’s impact whenever it releases a report. Ergo, all scientists (Excluding Mikey Mann) are deniers.

    Indeed. And add to that all the other retarded and spectacularly disastrous decisions that Labour foisted upon all of us, and the shambles they made of the economy.

    And then they have the unbelievable gall to claim that they’ve got a lock on “rationality”!!!

    The arrogance of these hypocrites, and their refusal to EVER acknowledge how utterly wrong they’ve been completely boggles my mind. Astounding.

    But of course, if you try to criticise them, then you’re labelled as a ‘flat-earther’ or a Daily Mail reader, or whatever their slur of the day is. What’s shocking is how they’ve managed to portray the Tories as the Nasty Party when time and time again it is Class Warfare, Kill the Rich, Crush Aspiration, and “We know how to spend your money better than you do” party that truly are the Nasty ones.
