The power-mad, money grabbing British government is losing the media war on global warming already. The Stern Report has been rubbished and criticised by the media – even the
Labour Press Office BBC.
Cobbett Rides Again puts the report into perspective superbly and the Adam Smith Institute gives the report a metaphorical kick in the teeth. An Englishman’s Castle has a graph produced by the Met Office showing that temperatures in Central England rose an average of 1.5 degrees between 1695 and 1737, obviously caused by time travelling 4×4 drivers and those dastardly oil companies sending their polution back 400 years through a secret wormhole using techniques the Roswell aliens showed them. Slightly more up-to-date, he gives the report a good going over pointing out some fundamental errors.
Still, at least Labour can pretend to be doing something in the run-up to next years local elections.
Ranting Stan has a transcript of an interview with historical climatologist, Dr Tim Ball, which basically debunks the whole global warming crap and proves the Stern Report to be worthless by pointing out that since 1940 – when we started pumping greenhouse gases into the atmosphere in serious quantities – the earth has actually been cooling down.
