HOW long are we the taxpayers going to put up with this man-made climate change garbage?

The word’s so-called leaders meeting in Paris have decided to limit the global warming to 1.5 per cent. How are they going to do that? By turning down the thermostat? The so-called biggest threat to humanity – “man-made climate change” –has been rubbished by a team of prominent scientists at a climate summit in Texas.

They declared that fears of man-made global warming were “irrational” and “based on nonsense” that had nothing to do with science.

They warned that “we are being led down a false path”.

The governments are not going to admit that they have lied for years about it, indeed they can’t afford to.

The green taxes are bringing in billions every year, thousands of jobs are dependent on it, and government scientists know that if they require funding for any project, they only have to add the magic words “and it’s effect on man-made climate change” and the funding is there! The heaviest emissions ever recorded were from factories at the end of the Second World War, but global temperatures fell for four decades. Green taxes are nothing more than theft and we should be able to sue the Government.
