As predicted in my April 16 column (“Talk About Inconvenient”) the long retreat has begun, as the climate change crowd struggles how to explain that the “irreversible” effects of greenhouse gases really don’t seem to have much effect at all. A story in today’s Daily Telegraph outlines the new (and I use the following word loosely) “logic” of the apologists.
This translates into: “Sure it’s getting colder, even though we said it was getting warmer, but that’s because nature has a big influence on our climate, until it doesn’t, in which case you will see that we were right, so start listening to us now and purchase your indulgences – er, carbon credits – from Greenhouse Al!” Or, to quote Charlie Brown: “tell your statistics to shut up”.
