It appears that a significant majority of the British electorate doesn't quite believe the sacred tenets of the Church of Global Warming.This is very bad if the government is to severely hamper the lifestyle of its subjects, especially since the subjects are voters. True, the educated people generally know the truth and support the rituals, but there aren't enough of them to swing elections.
Me, I've been against pouring gook into the atmosphere since the late 1960s, long before the creation of the Church of Global Warming. But alas, I'm a believer in doing so in ways that play on people's greed, not against it. Find a way to have clean energy cheaper than dirty energy, then sit back and watch the Saudis and other OPEC folks shrivel back to their natural size.
