Climategate – Conservative Party 90% Dont Believe In Man Made Climate Change
Posted by Tory Aardvark
On the Conservativehome blog yesterday were the first signs of the Conservative party starting to move away from the great AGW scam with this entry
Al Gore and his followers are losing the climate change debate
The nuance of the word followers is interesting, it clearly attempts to distance Al Gore and science from Climate Change, not an unreasonable thing to do given that Gore has no scientific qualifactions at all.
This is the first hint that one of the two major UK political parties is starting to drift away from the Church of Climatology. A recent survey of 200 Conservative PPC’s listed Climate Change as the lowest priority and the economy as the highest priority.
The latest poll for the BBC on man made Climate Change shows that the Conservative candidates are in tune with the voters mood.
The freshly cooling Guardian has this story today:
Most Conservative MPs, including at least six members of the shadow cabinet, are sceptical about their party’s continued focus on climate change policies, it has been claimed.
The recent furore around “Climategate” has hardened the views of Tory MPs, many of whom were already unconvinced by the scientific consensus, and has led to increasing calls for the issue to be pushed down the priority list.
Tim Montgomerie, founder and editor of the ConservativeHome website, said climate change had the potential to be as divisive for the party as Europe once was. “You have got 80% or 90% of the party just not signed up to this. No one minded at the beginning, but people are starting to realise this could be quite expensive, so opinion is hardening.”
Montgomerie said that while some MPs simply did not believe the science, others felt it would harm the economy too much to focus on policies to reduce emissions. “Some think, ‘What is the point in taking all these decisions if India and China and others row ahead?’ Nigel Lawson makes the point that 30% of Indian people have no electricity and the Indian government has to give that to them. The cheapest way to do that is fossil fuels.“
The article also goes on to say that Climate Change has the potential to be as divisive as the EU to the Conservative Party, there is a good deal of truth in this, speaking personally Aardvark feels very strongly about this, and the EU as well.
David Cameron, if elected has a golden opportunity to the kill off the AGW scam very easily by writing it off as a crackpot wealth redistribution plot by a deeply unpopular Labour Government and backed up by fraudulent and sloppy science; quite simply the whole business of man made Climate Change needs to start again with a meticulous peer review process and no political agenda.
