But why? Losing one’s temper is usually a sign of insecurity. If global warming alarmists are so certain the evidence supports them, why don’t they just provide it?
Instead insults are thrown at Fielding and anyone who, like him, questions the dogma of warmism. Such questioners are stupid, or out of date, or in the pay of oil companies. But again, why not just provide the evidence, if it is so clear?
It had jolly well better be clear, given the enormous cost.
The world runs on energy. Cheap goods, transport, medical care, virtually every aspect of daily life we now take for granted, depends on the energy presently produced by fossil fuels.
In the form of emissions trading schemes, legislation is being proposed which will cause massive unemployment, shut down major industries, and cause a depression and depth of suffering never seen since the beginning of the industrial age.
It is not only the right of legislators to ask for clear evidence of the reasons for which such legislation is being proposed, it is an absolute obligation.
Fortunately, more and more people are becoming that aware claims of a scientific consensus, and the ‘science’ on which that consensus is supposedly based, are both a crock of doo-doo.
