Dear Chief Secretary to the Treasury,
I'm afraid to tell you there's no money left.
Signed, Liam Byrne

Because I say so.

Mr Ed Milliband says :-
we know CO2 concentrations are at their highest for 6,000 years
No, Mr Milliband, we don't know anything of the sort, not for sure - and frankly, the scientific community that promoted AGW has managed to discredit itself a bit recently because it's been proven that they messed around with data to make it fit the outcome they wanted, and which they were paid to achieve.

Ed Milliband also says :-
to take what the sceptics say seriously would be a profound risk."
In other words he's telling Guardian readers to do as he says, or else. They mustn't listen to the naysayers because they are wrong and it'll be their fault if, and when, the planet burns up because we're all breathing out too much.

Perhaps Mr Ed will take the time to read some of the comments his article has received, it would seem that his stance hasn't gone down too well.

Like his brother, this Milliband needs to realise that just because he says something it doesn't make it true, and getting his words written in a newspaper doesn't make them true either.

There are some things that have been reported very recently that show a, seemingly politically expedient, disregard for honesty and truthfulness.

Let's look at some of those things.

We've had an individual allowed to declare his fears about AGW as equal to a religious belief, so protecting his employment.

We've had Mr Brown calling AGW sceptics flat-earthers, and we've had the climategate emails - whose ripples are still spreading.

Rajendra Pachauri is slowly but surely being discredited, thanks to certain bloggers - for example here, here and here. The story is only now being picked up by MSM.

We have scientific theories presented to international conferences, and used as a basis for agreements and protocols - yet find they are based on little more than chatter and a student dissertation .

We now know that UN reports were altered and we know that IPCC was misled, and now we have scientists claiming they are only human.

Perhaps IPCC scientists should realise that the rest of us are 'only human' too, and we are capable of acknowledging that the establishment has been trying to make us pay for the Emperor's New Clothes in the form of carbon credits. We fear that this is a pocket-lining scam akin to the South Sea Bubble - something that has been mentioned more than once on this blog.

"Rajendra Pachauri is slowly but surely being discredited": I would have said that he has long been discredited but the truth about him is slowly but surely being revealed.

"We fear that this is a pocket-lining scam akin to the South Sea Bubble - something that has been mentioned more than once on this blog." Another pocket-lining scam: the Transportation Security Administration ( ) aka Thousands Standing Around, TSA sister organisations worldwide and their antics including:

"Full-body scanners could have foiled the Christmas Day airline bomb plot, some experts say. In 2010, US airports will add at least 150 to the 40 already in use, the TSA says. But critics say the machines won't help."

From the comments on that Guardian site:

Ed Miliband declares war on climate change sceptics

So what are you going to do about it tough guy? Jump up and down and squeak? The US, China and India are the only countries that matter on this issue, everyone else is an irrelevance. Obama will never get anything through congress. India and China have no intention of giving up fossil fuel. The games up."

I recommend "The Great Global Warming Swindle": in which Fatty Lawson claims that Maggie the Thatch invented global warming to keep us out of the clutches of OPEC and their unlikely confederates in the coal industry such as Comarade Arthur Scargov. Priceless. More seriously, one of the messages from that excellent documentary which touches on the very topical and current phenomenon of data-fixing is that climate change is a natural result of solar activity and blaming humans is like checking your back left-wheel hubcap rather than the engine when your car breaks down.
