Don't have that Baby just yet ...

"I believe that in a world with still more people, wanting still more growth for good reasons, the demand for energy, raw materials and resources will increase and so, over time so, over time, will the prices," she said.

"I think we have to realize that in the world of the 21st century for us to have the cheapest possible energy is not the answer."

OR

"As facts change, so must policy. The EU must change course and in the UK the Climate Change act must be thrown on the scrap heap of mistaken ideas," he said.

"A higher world population means we should stop subsidizing inefficient and expensive wind turbines and instead make better use of fracking, nuclear energy and tidal power."

Today’s on-line Beacon features five posts from the indefatigable Mr. Keeler: 3 blog posts, one post under “Comments” and 1 under “Letters” Does anyone else wonder whether the gentleman protests too much? Still more on “scams” and “extreme greenies” from one some might be tempted to describe as an “extreme brownie”. Clearly, Mr. Keeler feels passionately that climate change is all a hoax, and he is welcome to his opinion.

And yet…

Today’s Guardian carries a headlines that reads “Climate change: IPCC issues stark warning over global warming.” Some excerpts:

“Call to 'stop dithering about fossil fuel cuts' as expert panel warns entire globe is affected

“…The fifth assessment report on the physical science of climate change by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warns that humanity is on course over the next few decades to raise global temperatures by more than 2C compared with pre-industrial levels. Such a rise could trigger the release of plumes of the greenhouse gas methane from the thawing Arctic tundra, while the polar ice caps, which reflect solar radiation back into space, could disappear.

“…But as the IPCC report underlines, scientists are becoming more and more certain that climate change poses a real danger to the planet.”

The article concludes with “Many believe the disconnection between popular belief and scientific analysis has been engineered by "deniers" explicitly opposed to the lifestyle changes – including restrictions on fossil fuel burning – that might be introduced in the near future.”

Perhaps it is time for the Brownies to explain the reason for their passionate denial and unwillingness to see any changes made that would bring us clearer air and water and sustainable energy, and why we should ignore warnings of approaching dangers made by so many leading scientists? None of whom, it should be added, are subsidized by Big Oil, Big Coal, etc.

Could ? Might ?  The usual evil of 'Big Oil' ?  Have the eco facists NO response based upon CURRENT climate science and solar physics ?

Leading scientists ?  Why not start naming some of these scientists ? Let's see ... there is the Union of Concerned Scientists, which, with a credit card and $ 35 or more anyone can join - are these the 'leading' scientists ?

Just who are the 'Many' ?

I can only repeat, "Perhaps it is time for the Brownies to explain the reason for their passionate denial and unwillingness to see any changes made that would bring us clearer air and water and sustainable energy, and why we should ignore warnings of approaching dangers made by so many leading scientists?"  Or perhaps one might comment on the linked articles?
