Yeomenry ride into battle, stinging times

Seem to be some mention of this one on the Talkshop

Heh, Tim ‘Trougher’ Yeo seems to be backpedalling furiously. “Did I say Global Warming is nearly all human caused? What I meant, of course, is that it could mostly be ‘natural phases’”. H/T @Sourmanarti. From the Telegraph:

And links a juicy story about a luvvie, Tim Yeo

We can’t know whether the newspaper report was reasonably accurate but circumstantially plenty of people wondered about the walk that could be seen over many years.

Request you avoid risking us getting a litigious chap trying it on.

    If Trougher should win, can someone remind us how much he’ll stand to gain for ‘damage’ to his ‘reputation’?

    Perhaps a sweepstake should be started.

  2. Roger, I found this really good article by a green lobby group which more or less confirms everything that I’ve been saying about the dead parrot talks:: “Still Losing, After All these Years” http://www.ecoequity.org/2015/07/still-losing-after-all-these-years/

    This is the news I’ve been hoping for, because once the “gullibles” realise that they are never going to get anything from these Dead parrot talks nor DPT II nor DPT III .. NOR ANYTIME

    Then the politicians will realise there’s absolutely nothing to be got from pretending to go along with the idiots on global warming because they are not going to get their vote anyway.

    And once there’s no votes in pretending to want to reduce CO2 … there’s no reason at all to keep up the pretence any longer.

    AND WE’VE WON!

    Shock horror! Not a politician saying one thing to one audience and something different to another? Anyone might think that he was a Lib-Dem.
    By the way, further to Yeo’s comments on the consensus, JoNova has an interesting post here. http://joannenova.com.au/2015/07/less-than-half-of-climate-scientists-agree-with-the-ipcc-95-certainty/
