Once again we need to turn to RT for an alternative to the climate change propaganda currently being shoved down our throats by the BBC and the rest of the Lefty MSM.
Johnny Ball believes that climate scientists have got it wrong, because there is a lobby that intends to "stop the world progressing, because, oddly enough, those who protest against modern technology want to hold things back, in other words make technology less effective which in turn would be a greater weight on the environment. For example, nuclear energy is absolutely carbon-free, but Greens oppose further development of the nuclear industry, branding it dangerous. "It is a political motivation having nothing to do with efficiency."
He says US Senate has just voted to have nothing to do with the UN International Panel on Climate Change: not to fund it, not to back it and not to be interested in its reports.
Climate science is tremendously politicised - they say "it is the consensus."
"Eugenics was made by consensus, Lynching might work by consensus, Hitler was accepted by consensus – you know? Consensus means nothing."
There has also been an outbreak of common sense in Canada where the Conservative government has permanently killed off any possibility of carbon taxes. Oh, dear - the house of cards is falling down fast - if only we also had a Conservative government in the UK with any leader other than Cameron, we too might get our very own outbreak of sanity!
