|The next 'last refuge' of the climate scoundrels?|
The planet is, if anything, greening. Furthermore, we humans are doing a pretty decent job of improving it wherever and whenever we have the spare wealth to do so. And almost all of those countries which are still beset with great poverty and deprivation have been making spectacular progress in becoming wealthier. Thanks in part to their increased use of fossil-fuels, just as those fuels were vital for the already developed nations. They remain vital to us today, but we have several options that might allow us to reduce our use of them over the rest of this century if we should wish to do so, for example to reduce air pollution, or to conserve valuable chemical feedstocks.
If the climate scare campaigners start pushing these buttons at the school gates, or even from within your school, here are some links that expose the flimsy basis of this latest attempt to terrify the ill-informed and vulnerable in our societies:
