A bunch of scrawny green activists – naked save for their reeky faux-leather thongs and patina of sweat, patchouli oil and essence of tofu – has invaded the House of Commons to demand that something be done about climate change.
This is so wrong.
If any one at all has the right to protest against Britain’s environmental policies, it’s not that tiny minority of green activists whose warped and ignorant opinion is forever being sought by our sad, desperate and craven political class. Rather, it’s the vast majority of us who are sick to the craw of being over-taxed, over-regulated and over-propagandised in the name of a non-existent problem.
‘Global warming’ is a man-made scare story.
The polar bears are doing so well they are in danger of becoming a plague.
The Pacific islands are not about to sink beneath the waves.
Bat-chomping, bird-slicing eco-crucifixes do far more obvious environmental damage than even coal-fired power stations.
Nuclear is far cleaner than renewable energy.
All normal, sensible people know this stuff which is why doing something about climate change comes very low on their list of priorities.
Yet in this bizarre Looking Glass world of ours, where values are inverted, and where the people with the least of value to say tend to make the most noise, climate change has become a political issue out of all proportion to its actual significance.
Britain’s supposedly Conservative government is as wedded to climate change as any of its Labour predecessors. The £300 billion Climate Change Act remains very much on the statute books, driving up the costs of living, hampering economic growth, sending the vulnerable into fuel poverty, making business less competitive, uglifying the landscape with expensive, nasty, inefficient solar and wind installations.
Not one senior member of the government dares speak out against the scam.
Nor is it easy to find anyone in the mainstream media reporting the issue accurately.
Worst offender is, of course, the BBC – which has long since given up all pretence of impartiality on this issue, despite the fact that its green advocacy is anathema to a sizeable minority and possibly even the majority of its viewers and listeners.
Almost daily it bombards us with environmental propaganda which often bears no relation to the actual facts. The BBC’s climate news is #fakenews and licence-fee payers who object to this appear to have little recourse against it other than the mild satisfaction of a rare “upheld” complaint.
In the last two years, for example, Paul Homewood has had no fewer than eight complaints upheld about the BBC’s nakedly dishonest environmental coverage:
The false claims made by the BBC were:
Sea levels at Miami rising ten times the global mean.
Tens of thousands of reindeer are being killed by climate change
Climate change is making hurricanes worse.
New onshore wind farms have been banned.
Since 2005 floods have increased by 15 times, extreme temperature events by 20 times, wildfires by 7 times
Penguin numbers in South Africa are being hit by climate change.
Every one of these claims is so far wrong it is not even in the ballpark of true. Each one is quite simply a bare-faced lie.
As the BBC leads, so does the rest of the Establishment follow: the politicians in Westminster and in local government; the Civil Service; the universities; big business, the City law firms; the schools; the mainstream media.
Those idiots baring their butt cheek in parliament yesterday weren’t saying anything new or valuable – or true. They were merely left-wing activists pushing at an open door in a parliament dominated by lazy, ignorant, cowardly MPs who wouldn’t dream of challenging the (false) environmental consensus lest they be made to look uncaring.
Meanwhile in the real world, the rest of us look on aghast.
As with Brexit, so it is with Climate Change: the best lack all conviction while the worst are full of passionate intensity.
