Ed Davey makes the Silliest Speech Ever!

Well so says Mr. Delingpole, and I must say that he has more than a point. I tend to keep off Climate Change on the whole because I am not a Climatologist. But then neither are most of the “experts” that pontificate about AGW. However when a Politician stands up and spouts such complete rubbish, I will take note and inform the reader. The article is reproduced here and I caution you not to have anything sharp in your hand as you read it. And he is not alone. Read Chris Booker in the Daily Mail What I do read is a fair amount of Scottish History and from them storm, flood and pestilence are not a prerogative of this generation, but have been around since Noah’s flood. What we have are weather events and their cause is many and various. What I can be certain of, and there is little certainty in this area, is that there is NO consensus on this matter! Yes, Climate may be changing, or we may be in a seven year cycle, but in fact Climate has changed over the millennia and the truth is that mankind has to learn to adapt to it. We are but an ant on an elephant’s back when it comes to any attempts to change destiny. Certainly the dinosaurs can attest to that! Perhaps the only difference between then and now is the instantaneous news coverage that brings tornados and tsunamis into our living room with talking heads rolled up for an immediate assessment of the event. 24 hour News coverage is turning us into worried harassed people when in the past ignorance was bliss!

Slightly mad. Always believes a cup is half full so continues to tilt at Wind Turbines and the politicians that seem to believe it is their god given right to ruin Scotland for a pot of fool's gold.

    I note the very bad flooding in Germany and surrounding countries is described as “The worst for 100 years” Is it likely any media outlets will query what caused the last ones, bearing in mind that CO2 levels were considerably lower then? I think we can be sure that it will all be blamed on man’s activities, with scant mention of the historical perspective…
