What would Thatcher say? Over half Tory MPs deny climate change (Polar Bear Facepalm)

‘Incredibly, 53% of Tory MPs asked in the poll agreed with the statement that “it has not yet been conclusively proved that climate change is man made”, a further 18% agree that “man-made climate change is environmentalist propaganda”.’ Original story here.

Margaret Thatcher, bless her cotton socks, was an early advocate of climate action. Sir Crispin Tickell managed to explain it to her (she had, let’s not forget, a chemistry background).  She made a major speech on this a couple of days… before the Berlin Wall came down. The rest is history.  As is the species, quite soon.

    These bloody scientists should know their place as mere ‘wage-slaves’ and ‘units-of-production’! Any that went to Eton and Oxford – and still push climate change propaganda – are class traitors and should be ashamed of themselves!
