Climate Change Jolly In Cancun

with 5 comments

Cancun Conference

My blogger-in-arms, Tory Ardvaark, calls it a “cocaine and hooker-fest” and he’s probably right.  Johann Hari,  my colleague on The Independent, says that the “next crash will be ecological – and nature doesn’t do bailouts”.  See here.

So, who has the more incisive angle on the gathering next week in Mexico’s top holiday resort?  It’s a strange choice of venue and does raise questions as to the real reason that so many will be flying there on government expenses.  As destinations go it must be a CO2 hotspot.  Maybe it’s even got it’s own hole in the ozone layer to match the nasal damage that so many visitors will be suffering?  Hopefully, condoms will protect them from any other consequences of their debauchery.   As for the conference though, it will probably be a waste of time, just like Copenhagen.

That idiot, Professor Phil Jones, at UEA’s Climate Change unit has got an awful lot to answer for.  His absurd and dishonest behaviour has discredited climate change science.   I think that while it would be stupid to ignore the idea of man-made climate change, it would be equally unwise to listen unquestioningly to those corrupt scientists who are mainly concerned with securing next year’s research grant.  Both extremes of the argument are as unreliable as each other.

Thankfully during my lifetime and my childrens’ we won’t see catastrophic effects from climate change, even if the scientists prove to be right.  Hopefully, by the time my grandchildren are around, science will have got its act together a little more  – what  shall we say – scientifically?   Of course, it may be too late by then.

The only thing that is certain is that Tory Ardvaark is right.  They’re going to have a hell of a good time down Mehico way and the drug dealers and pimps will be coining it.
