    Trump said:
    “In order to fulfil my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens the US will withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord but begin negotiations to re-enter either the Paris accord, or an entirely new transaction on terms that are fair to the United States, its businesses, its workers, its people, its tax-payers”.

    He is after a better deal…what do the tax titty suckers not understand about that? He also mentioned the $22T debt (and rising) the US carries and a topic rarely mentioned in UK.

    Modelling indicates that Trumps action will stick 0.5 deg C onto the end of century temperature. I think they really meant industrial rise in Asia will. Anyway, its likely now that M. Benz and BMW order forecasting will slump a bit.

    The Earths history shows that climate has changed regularly and dramatically. Human beings did not create the ice-ages or the other major changes that have taken place. Humanity needs to downgrade its own self-importance and realize the planet will change itself no matter what humans, in their arrogance, do.

      Yes Rosie, and I add that humans didnt end the ice age, or cause it to end, something far bigger & more powerful did, I recon it was the suns activities, flares etc. There was no man made influence on the melting then, there were not enough of them, and very few had volksmobilen.

      Who told you the ice age was over?
      In reality (that state of affairs the BBC can not accept) it is highly unlikely that the ice age has ended and that in the next 1000 years the earth will return to the ice age which has existed for about 2 million years. Sadly our civilization sprang up in an interglacial warm period which have been happening fairly regularly every 100,000 years during the ice age. Do not believe the idiots who think that CO2 will stop us from going back to ice age.

    Dr’s, Willie Soon, Judith Curry, Fred Singer, Richard Lindzen, alongside, Peter Lilley Roger Helmer, people of easy charm, wit, scholarly and steeped in knowledge, and………….. you’d be hard pressed to meet a nicer bunch of people.

    Their only sin, they aver caution and measured response. Much as I love, respect and admire them, they’re a tad staid for my tastes.

    Hmm, oh yes, I tend, more in the vanguard with Mark Steyn, James Delingpole and the like.

    Climate warming Yeah, yeah, yeah CO₂ is a ‘blanket gas’ sure the Temps have risen slightly, naturally…………. since, the LIA but the idea that mankind’s input of ±5% is having something to do with warming is a preposterous supposition. A big lie, based on C19th two dimensional experimentation and a load of crap statistics, there is no science involved, just lots of modular prognostication and that folks is, not science – no, it’s the modern equivalence of: rune reading.

    Set agin, Mann, the cesspit of CRU, GISS, NOAA, NSIDC et al………the likes of that madman Wadham, and Jim ‘close the windows’ Hansen……… the pinched faced megalomaniacs promulgators of the great green scam……………..

    like erm………..Christina Figueres:

    At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.

    “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution,” she said.

    Intolerance begets totalitarianism. which just about sums up the UN these days. Those authoritarian scum suckers, Michael E Mann and Christina Figueres personify this sort of nutter, as she says “you will be made to alter your ways” – no ifs nor buts, mother theresa, all the Westminster claque are of the same mind, therefore she and they are damned with the rest of these dictatorial green headbangers.
    You see, i don’t mind much what they believe, nah it’s a free world……………I only do become agitated when they insist that I join their green project – whether I want to or not and FFS how many more times……….without enforced taxpayer subsidy: there would be no ‘green industry’!!!

    Orwell nailed it, maybe he even foresaw it:

    “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

    My only quibble with Roger Helmer……well maybe not with him personally, why don’t UKIP nail their anti global wankerati, anti alarmist colours to the mast?

    UKIP…….. why the timid reticence? Jump up and tell the world, “fuck to global warming!” shock them – be different and offer the UK electorate a real choice…………..!!

  4. Ian Terry says:

    well said Roger.

    They don’t like it up them. Listening to Ed Milliband who followed you just goes to prove what a dick head he is. His head is so far up his bum he is licking his tonsils and that goes for all his so called CC supporters

  5. Graham Shevill says:

    Roger you are the only politician of note who understands climate change. Why indeed is UKIP not shouting this out loud?
