Even the UN’s climate change chief, Rajendra Pachauri ( a man with a vested interest if ever there was one ! ) has had to acknowledge that there has been NO rise in global temperature for the last 17 years……a period coinciding with an unprecedented expansion of CO2-emitting power stations in China, India and elsewhere.
The evidence in the film ”The Great Global Warming Swindle”, is that climate has ALWAYS been changing, ( for instance, it was much warmer in the Middle Ages than it is now ), and that Climate Change is primarily due to processes in the Sun which impact – via the ‘solar wind’ – on cloud-formation – and NOT human activity.
CO2, man-made or otherwise, is NOT the driving force behind Climate Change now, and never has been in the past.
We can probably all agree that pollution is not a particularly good idea, but on the other hand it is alarmist nonsense to suggest that we are all going to drown under melting ice-caps or something if we continue to burn stuff.
The film also has important things to say on the origins of the ”theory” of anthropogenic climate change – think : Reagan and Thatcher ! – and its potential, or rather its intention to stifle economic development in the poorest regions of our planet.

At one time left-wing and progressive politics embraced energy, technology, and modernity as the key to human liberation and prosperity. But through its adoption of a reactionary apocalyptic pastoralism, much of the ”Left” today has been side-tracked; its historic role of pragmatic action for people and their environment, effectively neutralised.
