Tory Greens - a Guest Post
Cameron recruits green warrior Gore | Uk News | News | Telegraph
What an idiot.....On Thursday, the former US vice-president will address a meeting of the shadow cabinet at the House of Commons. Mr Cameron approached Mr Gore during a visit to London last autumn and asked him if he would meet him and his team. Last week, Mr Gore unexpectedly rang the Tory leader to say that he would be delighted to take up the invitation.
It gets worse.....The Conservatives will also suggest - most controversially of all - rationing individuals to as little as a single short-haul flight each year; any further journeys would attract progressively higher taxes, a leaked document entitled Greener Skies suggests.
Some sense in the Telegraph leader.....
"Some of those dissenting voices were on display in The Great Global Warming Swindle, a powerful programme broadcast last week. Channel 4 is to be congratulated for not being intimidated or bullied out of transmitting the documentary: it is difficult to imagine today's BBC having the courage to assault a doctrine so entrenched in politically correct opinion."
Although some nonsense as well:
"They have found it hard to get a hearing, not least because the oil companies did immense damage to any form of scepticism about global warming when it became apparent that they had bribed hundreds of scientists to act as PR lobbyists for the claim that "global warming isn't happening and if it is, it isn't caused by CO2 emissions". This immediately made anyone who raised doubts about the relation between CO2 emissions and global warming look like the executives from big tobacco companies who tried to claim that there was no evidence that smoking causes cancer."
Thanks DA for that
