UK Climate Change Minister Shuns Public Transportation Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Sat, Jun 4, 2011, 05:16 pm

All Huhne.jpgGreat Britain’s Climate Change Minister refuses to use public transportation and prefers to travel in chauffeur-driven limousines on his way to Global Warming summits, while charging the bill to British taxpayers.

According to the Daily Mail of London, “Chris Huhne blew more than 46,000 (British Pounds) on chauffeur-driven cars and taxis during his first year in office.”

The Liberal-Democratic climate change minister, already embroiled in a scandal for forcing his ex-wife to take the rap for speeding tickets, racked up the massive bill although his department is charged with promoting ‘green travel,’ such as the train.

As reported by the Daily Mail, “the spending, which works out at 177 (British Pounds) per weekday, does not include the travel of officials and advisers, just Mr. Huhne’s own car journeys.”

Apparently, the four ministers in the Department of Energy and Climate Change, which he is leading, charged up a total bill of 176,000 (British pounds) since they assumed office in May.

You can bow to your army of nameless throngs of thousands and thousands of consensus scientists, who are paid to study the effects of something that hasn't happened all you like. It still won't make it true.
The new denier is anyone who doesn’t know that voters will not vote yes to taxing the air to make the weather colder.
Pollution and energy and population and waste are real issues, but climate change’s criminal exaggeration is good news to REAL planet lovers who see a crisis avoided.
As for the rest of you, you didn't love the planet, you hated humanity by wishing for this misery to have happened.

This wasn’t about change, it was about controlling the climate with taxes to make the weather colder.
Much of the American and Canadian Rust Belts have not had one single smog day in over 5 years. Pollution? Does anyone remember the smoggy 70's when a river caught fire in Ohio? A half century of environmental action has made our world better. Just think of how things would be now without Rachel Carson’s environmental revolution and the laws, standards and protections it has brought us.
"We must be doing something to the planet" isn't science, it's primal superstition and modern day witch burning.
Facing the future of energy, waste, and pollution with fear, like some trailer park intellectuals, makes neocons out of all of us. Yes, neocons because climate change wasn’t environmentalism, it was a specific CO2 death threat to billions of children and used by well intentioned voters to motivate responsible environmentalism. Meanwhile, the UN had allowed carbon trading to trump 3rd world fresh water relief, starvation rescue and 3rd world education for just over 25 years of climate control instead of the obviously needed population control. REAL planet lovers and REAL progressives and REAL civilized and loving people were happy and relieved the science was a mistake, a criminal exaggeration and one of mankind’s darkest eras.
Relieve yourself of this burden of a dying planet from CO2 and look for the flaws and cracks in the perception of scientific consensus. The consensus among scientists stinks like a rat:
-Why are the concerned scientists who warned us of catastrophic crisis not marching in the streets and demanding justice for the planet after all American IPCC research funding into climate change was pulled? Or why is this army of thousands of consensus scientists that I dare you don’t know one single name of, at least acting like it’s an emergency? Especially when Obama never even mentioned the “crisis” in his state of the union speech.
-How do scientists always outnumber protestors?
-Why do all scientists have a different and personal and unique definition of climate change? BECAUSE the IPCC promises that the effects of human CO2 will be from negligible to unstoppable warming. This sounds like a free pass does it not and considering there are now consequences for saying the crisis is real, when it’s not, it is all the more a free pass for lab coat consultants.
Thousands of consensus scientists also produced cruise missiles, cancer causing chemical cocktails, land mine technology, nuclear weapons, germ warfare, cluster bombs, strip mining technology, Y2K, Y2Kyoto, deep sea drilling technology and now climate control.
