DEFRA to send out climate change pledge cards

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

The Millibeast has decided to show us his green credentials by sending out green pledge cards to every household “across the country”.

DEFRA only covers England though so I guess “across the country” means England yet by the looks of it, the pledge card talks about the UK.  Strange.

Anyway, I’m a climate change denier so I’ve sent the following email to DEFRA:


If you want to “do your bit” for the environment then please start by not sending me a green pledge card.  I’ve made my own mind up on climate change by reading information from various sources, including the source data used for the Stern Report.  Climate change has been happening for centuries at the very least and it’ll still happen if we all eat lentils and live in communal yurts.  The Vikings didn’t name Greenland after its striking covering of green ice a thousand years ago – it was green!  Sending me a piece of dead tree telling me a pack of lies about climate change to justify putting up taxes won’t change my mind so save the paper and save the postage.  Put the 30-odd pence into the “save the bankrupt English farmers who’ve lost their farms because DEFRA couldn’t pay them their subsidies on time” fund instead.
