Quote of the Day

Charles Moore on Green alarmism

“The theory of global warming is a gigantic weather forecast for a century or more. However interesting the scientific inquiries involved, therefore, it can have almost no value as a prediction. Yet it is as a prediction that global warming has captured the political and bureaucratic elites. All the action plans, taxes, green levies, protocols and carbon-emitting flights to massive summit meetings, after all, are not because of what its supporters call “The Science”. Proper science studies what is – which is, in principle, knowable – and is consequently very cautious about the future – which isn’t. No, they are the result of a belief that something big and bad is going to hit us one of these days.”

    It’s a power grab by a status-quo that realises the status-quo won’t hold much longer.
    Hold back developing countries by restricting access to the fossil fuels that helped us. And the taxes, always with the fucking taxes…

Is it just me, or is Nigel Farage just a top hat and a monocle away from being a Batman villain?
