Don't board that plane

DAVID Davies (Argus article, December 31) seems to prove the old adage that a little knowledge is dangerous.

The fact that climate naturally changes to a small extent can be seen on the many temperature reconstructions of the past 1,000 years. However, the level of warming experienced from the late 20th century onwards is unprecedented in the past 1,000 years. The Arctic is melting and extreme weather events are happening more frequently.

The intergovernmental panel on climate change 2007 report concluded that it was at least 90 per cent certain that emissions of greenhouse gases caused by man rather than natural variations were warming the planet’s surface. If you were told by experts there was a 90 per cent plus chance of a plane crashing, you would not board it. This metaphorically is the plane Mr Davies wants us to board in hope that the world scientific consensus is wrong and he is right.

Man-made climate change is very bad science been disproved as such.
The problem is that if it's not believed the industries that claim that it's a fact will lose billions in revenue.
Remember when all the worlds countries descended on Copenhagen a few yrs ago?
They all flew in on private jets and Limousines were in such short supply in Denmark that they had to rent out Swedish Limos or the officials couldn't go to the conference!
It's a case of "Do as you're told not as we do!"
Watch the "Great global warming scam", that should enlighten many.
