Oi, Climate changers!
This is not what I was promised. Global Warming was to mean I'd have palm trees and grape vines in my garden. I can barely keep grass alive in that lot. There has been so little sunshine this summer that even with the help of a greenhouse, my crop of chillis is already almost exhausted. Peppers and tomatoes are long since done and as for aubergines, I managed to grow one. Just as well, since I have discovered I don't like aubergines. That plant was also a fungus magnet. It won't be back next year.
Climate change? There is well over a foot of climate here at the moment and the only change I see is that we're back to those 1980s winters where nobody can clear the snow because there's nowhere left to put it. The Met office are going to pretend that this was the second warmest year on record. Which is true, if records go back two years.
Can someone slap a little sense into that hoon Huhne? All that warming - it really is not happening. Putting up energy bills will not save the planet. It will only save on the pension bill.
Which, I am beginning to sincerely believe, is the only thing it's supposed to achieve.
History books might well refer to this Huhne character as a central figure in the Great Green Genocide. Camps and gas chambers? Old hat. The new Green Genocide can kill you in your own home and charge you for the privilege. With full Government approval.
At least the Nazis were honest about it.
