The UK’s Climate Change Secretary, Ed Miliband, has stated it would be “profoundly irresponsible” to use one “mistake” as an excuse not to act.
He was referring to the fact that the Himalayan Glaciers have not seemed to melt in quite the ‘doom and gloom’ manner predicted by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
Mr Miliband added it did not “undermine decades of climate research and the overwhelming majority of scientists say that.” Hmmm it must be right then!
The trouble is, no-one has come up with a convincing argument either for, or against, climate change being a man-made problem. It has, instead, been a storm of confusion and opposing ‘facts’.
Cyclical changes in climate have been occurring since the creation of the planet.
Yes, we could all do a lot better at helping the environment but we have reached a stage in our evolution where we no longer just accept, or believe, the words of Al Gore, government funded scientists or self important ministers. We need to respond to positive education and not desperate scare tactics.
I have no idea who is right or wrong about global warming but what I do know, for sure, is…… I am bloody freezing!!
