Being burnt alive by our wonderful Summer weather

A subject that shows no sign of abating is that of Global Warming. Every day some doomsayer tells us that the world is going to end unless we start driving around in cars powered by chicken poo.

It’s a subject that everyone is an expert on and we all have an opinion. Personally I think it’s all tripe. I cannot deny global warming is happening (although I’m sure it’s colder than it used to be) but can we really blame mankind? I mean we’ve only been monitoring climate change for a relatively short period of time and there his evidence of huge climate shift that took place millennia ago so what’s to say it isn’t part of some natural planetary cycle? The polar ice caps are still melting and have probably been doing so since the last ice age. Once they have completely melted, the result will no doubt be a temperate imbalance that pushes us back into another one.

The percentages of Co2 emissions we produce are tiny and it is a little known fact that cow flatulence produces more methane than automobiles so there is definitely a flaw in these eco-warriors’ argument somewhere.

Anyway, that is just my opinion. What do you think? If you have an opinion, get on your soapbox and vote!
