This is a response to “Why Can’t We Innovate Our Way To A Carbon-Free Energy Future?”, a “Perspective” by Bjorn Lomborg that ran in this space a week ago.

” …Lomborg’s claim that we need to “cure” so-called “unchecked climate change” is thus fallacious and contradicted by reality. Reducing human CO2 emissions will likely have no measurable cooling effect on planetary temperatures.

His insistence that we prioritize expenditures is spot-on when applied to genuine environmental and societal problems. However, it is irrelevant when the problems are mythical — or devised to advance ideological agendas. Moreover,… “

Unquestionable!

Here’s a good one.
The French Academy of Sciences has pronounced Global Warming is “unquestionable” science.
Durh!
If it’s unquestionable, un ami, it’s not science.
Science must be able to be questioned, by definition!
Trust me, my dear froggy, AGW is very, very, questionable.

Spending Review: Honesty is the best policy before the bigger fuel bills start to bite
The Coalition is tackling Brown’s deficit – it now needs to tackle his energy policies, says Charles Moore.

” …Economic collapse is, indeed, the answer to too much carbon, but in the same way that bubonic plague is the answer to the common cold.

The other result is that people get angry. They have been conscripted by their governments into an unwinnable war without end. The bills will rise, but the emissions will not fall. The country will not get cleaner, but its people will get poorer. There will come a point – provoked by power cuts, or by the bill for a cold winter – when we will be utterly sick of being ordered to save the planet, and we shall mutiny.

Politicians who want to stay in office should realise this, and take evasive action. Hard times provide the moment…. “
