  1. It’s because they live in a fantasy world of goodies and baddies. They are good, self evidently, which means that anybody who opposes them is, by definition, of the night. Therefore, if you go around declaring that green issues are generating negative and undesirable effects, you must be lying, or exaggerating, or something. Anyway, they can safely assume that anything you say should be taken with a pinch of salt, because you’re one of the baddies, and therefore cannot be motivated by any sincere concern but simple malice. You are of the dark, and therefore, exist solely for the purpose of destroying the light.

    You should buy yourself a black hat, and work on developing a menacing sneer. I’m sure they’d appreciate it.

    Laughter is best medicine against #UKIP climate rant, demonstrated by @MargreteAuken #EPhearings2014
    3:15 PM – 6 Oct 2014

    Does this laughing person leave her TVs, computers etc on standby at night? Do the Americans turn them off I wonder and what are their measures against global warming. Why should Europe do this alone? It is in any case, as King Canute found, you cannot teach nature to suck eggs. Our puny efforts will not change her mind about the future.

    Is the Brussels EU Parliament a gathering of dim wits apart from UKIP and other common sense members ,do they not follow the true science .
    It tells them that the world is not warming therefore there is no need to increase renewable energy by taxing CO2 but to increas abundant UK gas production

    • catalanbrian says:

      From where do you obtain your information that advises that “the world is not warming”? Presumably from the likes of he UKIP Energy Spokesman, Mr Helmer, and misguided organisations such as Lawson’s now discredited Global Warming Policy Foundation, often quoted as the experts by Mr Helmer (they have recently had their wrists slapped by the Charity Commission for blurring fact and opinion, contrary to Charity Commission rules).

      The evidence accepted by most experts points in quite the other direction. See http://www.skepticalscience.com/no-warming-in-16-years.htm

  5. Thomas Fox says:

    I am not just reading Mr Helmer,s common sense observations but many eminent scientists that tell me the IPCC with Mr Mann et al have adjusted the true figures to show warming !
    The crack pot idea that all the their forecast heat is now so deep in the oceans that it can not be detected is unprovable . Unfortunately this unscientific idea by the Greens can to be perpetuated long into the future ?

      Who are these eminent scientists?

        Scientists questioning the accuracy of IPCC climate projections

        Scientists in this section have made comments that it is not possible to project global climate accurately enough to justify the ranges projected for temperature and sea-level rise over the next century. They may not conclude specifically that the current IPCC projections are either too high or too low, but that the projections are likely to be inaccurate due to inadequacies of current global climate modeling.

        Scientists arguing that global warming is primarily caused by natural processes

        Graph showing the ability with which a global climate model is able to reconstruct the historical temperature record, and the degree to which those temperature changes can be decomposed into various forcing factors. It shows the effects of five forcing factors: greenhouse gases, man-made sulfate emissions, solar variability, ozone changes, and volcanic emissions.[30]
        Scientists in this section have made comments that the observed warming is more likely attributable to natural causes than to human activities. Their views on climate change are usually described in more detail in their biographical articles.

    Roger I once had a lot of people laugh at me during a debate on social issues in the European Economic and Social Committee. My response was to pause then ask the Section Chairman if he had ever seen the reaction of a boxer who had been really thumped in the face with such force that his gum shield fell out. The reaction of that boxer, and all others who are hurt is to laugh. It is their only defensive mechanism.

    Whenever you raise opposition to policies promoted by Green activists they are deffinately hurt. You are absolutely right intensive industry is leaving the EU member states because of these policies. Please keep hurting them and make them laugh
