Global Warming is Going Down Like Nine Pins ExpressFP

First, it was the Mail on Sunday, and the brilliant exposé by David Rose about the alleged manipulation of climate data.

Today, the critique of ‘global warming’ hits the front page of the mainstream media with the Daily Express in full flight: ‘100 REASONS WHY GLOBAL WARMING IS NATURAL’:

“CAMPAIGNERS yesterday attempted to pour scorn on ‘tenuous’ global warming theories by issuing a dossier detailing 100 reasons why climate change is natural and not man-made.”

Now, this piece may well be a tad tabloid and florid, but that is to miss the key point. What we have here is a second major newspaper willing to challenge the political grand narrative, which politicians and some scientists, much to their discredit, have attempted to defend by employing all manner of inflammatory language, subterfuge, and trickery in their vain attempt to close down debate.

I am thus delighted that journalists are once again willing to be critical journalists, and to challenge the narrative. That should be their job. Yet, too many have been supine, or, worse, complicit.

Paradoxically, Is Copenhagen The Beginning Of The End?

Equally, there are welcome signs of change in even the most PC of papers and media outlets. Unquestionably, the over-hyping of ‘global warming’ has backfired badly, a point painfully illustrated by one of the worst TV programmes I have ever witnessed, namely Hot Planet, broadcast on BBC1 last Sunday at 20:00. Unsurprisingly, there were some pretty bad reviews. This was an embarrassment to Aunty. Indeed, it was so dreadful that I really do hope people watched it, because it is precisely the type of output that is generating a backlash. It was laugh out loud stuff.

And, of course, the developing world is currently really telling the developed what is what at Copenhagen.

I have long predicted that the Copenhagen Conference might prove to be both the apex and the beginning of the end for the ‘global warming’ grand narrative.

But the skittles are going down faster than even I expected.
