(hat tip: Liberal Review)
The Tory confusion about the environment deepens. The problem is, they now love the environment but hate one of the best tools we have for protecting it: the EU. Out of desperation, they have thrown themselves into the arms of a party that is deeply opposed to climate change policies:
In an interview with the Czech newspaper Hospodarske noviny on February 12, Mr Klaus said: â€œGlobal warming is a false myth and every serious person and scientist says so.â€
He added: â€œEnvironmentalism as a metaphysical ideology and as a worldview has absolutely nothing to do with natural sciences or with the climate.â€ Scientists who said global warming was happening were â€œpoliticisedâ€, he said.
Meanwhile of course, the environmentalists they have embraced say similarly batty things about the EU. Take tin foil hat salesman Zac Goldsmith, who mixes environmentalism, cigar smoking and gambling with wanting to smash the whole thing up into little pieces and leave the rest of the world entirely dependent on the US for leadership.
All in all, it looks as if Cameron’s support for green issues is only limited to the UK’s own borders. If only climate change respected borders in the same way.
