SIR – It is amazing that every newspaper in the world appears to buy into the myth of mankind having begun the next global extinction. This began primarily with the Al Gore fantasy, ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ – a pseudo-science hotchpotch about man-made global warming – a work full of inconsistencies and downright lies.
But, The Southern Star (Editorial, December 19th) has even bought into this rubbish begun by a failed politician who has even claimed that the introduction of the Internet was down to him. Now that that bloody climate-change rubbish is done and dusted in Paris, let’s get back to real life and forget about all the hot air they’ve been spewing for the past fortnight.
It cost about €90 million to put on that shindig and they all travelled there on foot and by donkey in order to save on their carbon footprint. Idiots who have nothing better to do will continue to preach at us that by just trying to live we are killing ‘their’ planet.
Just shut up, all of you tree-hugging work-shy chancers who expect us to ‘apologise to our children’ if winters gush a lot of rain, and if summers get a bit hotter ... I wish. And leave my children out of this.
The ‘Earth-loving’ misanthropes will continue to moan and attempt to foist their man-made costly remedies upon us even if we promised to let them have their way. They are more interested in profit than in being lousy prophets who do not have an ounce of credible argument.
Africa, for example, because of where it is, will continue to have drought and starvation, sadly. It is nobody’s fault, but if real help was available, instead of dropping bombs on them if they step out of line, then that would be great.
It has nothing to do with whether we burn coal or try to have some of the basic comforts of life, ourselves. Be guilty for me if you wish, but I will contend that
the price of milk and petrol is enough for me to be going on with, along with
hoping myself and my family and friends live as long as possible, regardless of it’s wet or dry, black or white, hot or cold. Normality.
