    That would be

    Dr Peter Stott from the UK Met Office said the former Chancellor had got the facts wrong.
    and

    His view was echoed by Prof Richard Betts from the University of Exeter.

    That there is a climate change, there is no doubt.

    How much of it is "man made" is entirely different matter.

    One thing is sure, it's a money maker for Scientists and Governments, so it's not going anywhere.

    It can also be a money saver for people, who, if instead of whinging and whining actually used less energy, the individuals would save money.

    ...but no, better to say science is wrong, it's purely for money, and lets try to consume as much of the natural resources as we possibly can.

    I'm pretty sure there is climate change, and I can agree that it might be exacerbate by human activity. I'm 100% certain that various groups - governments, Greenpeace etc. - are using climate change to further their own agendas. I'm a 100% certain that a significant proportion of climate change deniers are as thick as Brexiters.

    Used to be a bunch of humans who believed enough human sacrifice would change the weather, now there's a fair number who think enough human sacrifice can change the climate.

    Both sets rely on a Priestly caste of 'knowing ones' who are always right & most vigilant against heresy.

    Either way, I don't think it really matters. Humans will always be too selfish to take the long view, and capitalism will always tend towards more rapaciousness, rather than less.

    Surely it's all academic come the next ice-age anyway.

    Right because if you wanted to line your pockets you'd go into academia or charity work ? Get real.

    Well TIL the average pay of a university professor in the UK is about £76K, not bad considering you'll never lose you job unless you go 'off message' or fondle some bright young thing.

    "Twelve of the top 100 charities paid their highest earners more than £300,000 and 32 more than £200,000."

    Matters not.

    The sun will be a red giant in 4.5billion years.

    And the way we are going people will still be demanding to use the wrong bathroom.
