The Great Global Warming Swindle

I've watched about twenty minutes of it so far. I've been a skeptic ever since people who expressed doubts started to become pilloried as it had all the classic symptoms of PC- death to the heretic.

When Bjorn Lomborg changed his green views and the ad hominem attacks started I knew that there was more to this than meets the eye.

It strikes me that if it is a big swindle (and the indications are strong that it is) then our MP Colin Challen is going to look a bit of a fool.

(When searching for the phrase Fool and Colin Challen together in Google just to see if anyone already thought he was one, I found something very foolish about American High School Puritanism, worth a look.)

I have seen it too. Near the end it starts to get political. Apparently it is all Margaret Thatcher's fault (isn't everything?). But the salient point is that Global Warming seems to be a cover for socialists, anti-technologists and doomsday believers. I am not worrying about GW now so much as how reason seems to be giving way to totalitarianism and superstition.

By the way, don't you know that the Vagina Monologues should now be called The Hoohaa Monologues!

I didn't see it but my colleague told me all about it. He was convinced but I've since heard other views.

It seems to me that climate change has happened for ever. Whether man is responsible for it or not, it makes sense that we should take care of our planet and our neighbour.
