“What beats me is how someone who is so concerned about the environment is so unconcerned about climate change.”
Because ‘climate change’ is all about reducing CO2, NI, which actually helps the environment. Without it there’d be no life on the planet. There is absolutely zero evidence that man-made CO2 makes anything other than a negligible contribution to climate change so reducing it will do nothing to help the environment. What we should be focusing on is reducing pollution and materials such as single-use plastics, which do harm the environment and kill people as well as other life.
Just reading all of the above comments reveals just how politicised this has become. Not a single one of you can address the questions I’ve raised and the fact you ridicule them reveals, first, just how ignorant you are; and, second, that you’re all great at talking about ‘climate change’ just as long as you’re not the ones actually having to do anything about it. What a bunch of total and utter hypocrites. As for your post, Gurnelista, the only person you’re fooling is yourself. You’ve even managed to bring Jews into your argument, which must have been tough for you.
As for the smoking and cancer link any comparison with the climate change argument is nonsensical for one very obvious reason, which if you understood the maths would be obvious even to you. Put very simply there are two variables involved, cancer and smoking, in which case making the causal connection is obvious and straightforward using very simple statistics. You will also find very high confidence intervals quoted, quite correctly.
With climate change there are literally hundreds of variables involved and anyone who knows anything about statistics will tell you that the more variables you have the more uncertainty you will also have; and, of course, you’ll NEVER see any confidence intervals quoted anywhere when it comes to climate change.
This very simple fact should set alarms bells ringing, but of course it’s conveniently ignored because it doesn’t fit the political narrative. So, just who are the liars in all of this?
