Gordon 'The Failed Oaf' Brown said there was global warming and raised taxes to combat this - in view of 'Clown' Brown's stated opinion, I am utterly convinced that an Ice Age will arrive.

It makes me laugh that all these bloody solar physicists can trace records of global sunspots back to the 17th century, but the MOD records office can't trace some soldiers' service history as recently as 60 years ago.

The scientific community has nearly always been wrong in history anyway. In the Middle Ages, they were going to excommunicate Galileo because the entire scientific community said the Earth was flat... I mean, it is absolutely bizarre that the people who can't tell us what the ******* weather is next Tuesday can predict with absolute precision what the ******* global temperatures will be in 100 years' time. It's horseshit.

As per usual O'Leary talks shite. Firstly, Galileo wasn't put through the wringer by the 'scientific community', there wasn't one at the time for starters, he was done by the church. In modern times substitute politicians for the church and you have a similar comparison. Secondly it was nothing to do with Flat Earth, it was down to the primacy of the Earth's position in the universe. Thirdly, chaotic processes average out over time and become predictable, which is why climate scientists talk about temperature changes over time, not the absolute temperatures. You can't say that it will be at 31.5 C at 12:00 noon 18 Jun 2050 in Trafalger Square, but you could say that the average temperature in the UK might be 0.5 deg C higher than it was this year (both figures just pulled out of the air as part of a description, don't hold me to them).

Only if you want to pay more into the pockets of corrupt Russian billionaires given that 50% (ish) of our electrical genertion is from gas! Great until they turn the valve as they did in the Ukraine and other states with knock on effects into Germany. The same country that has come up with the insane idea to ditch nukes when they don't have the capacity to replace it,. Great joined up thinking... oops not!
