Climate Change?

The jury is in, and in this report over 700 scientists worldwide disagree that global warming is a) man-made or b) proven. This number is 13 times the amount of scientists who signed the original UN IPCC Report of 2007.

It has been looking for some while as if this was a cleverly engineered (excuse pun) political exercise in order to bring in a raft of internationally-binding agreements which probably have much more to do with peak oil than with climate change. That is not to say, however, that we are not rapidly destroying our environment - we are - but just that the solutions to that problem are much more complex than slapping a few extras taxes on everything we do. The latter option would, of course, continue to enrich a minority whilst restricting freedoms of the majority.
