I am not a climate change denier. I am absolutely in favour of electricity delivered free from the wind and the sun.
For me there are two real pluses. 1) We don’t have to bow at the knee to Putin or the Middle East sheiks and B) they don’t give you pneumoconiosis, the lung disease which destroyed the lives of our coal miners.
That having been said I am puzzled by one stat from the annual report of the World Meteorological Organisation.
And this is it; The average global temperature from January to September this year was just 1.09C above the average between 1850 and 1900.
So in over a century our temperature has only moved up one degree. I do accept that there have been strange movements in our weather like the summer heatwave in British Columbia and the rise in global sea levels.
But might they just be freaks of nature. Back in 1963 the Thames froze over in the coldest winter for 200 years. It previously hadn’t done that since 1814.

I am not so keen on Boris constantly ratting the can for the developing world, claiming that unless they take action we can’t move forward. That is tosh. China, Russia, India are important. Nobody else matters.
Without asking the voters he announces in Glasgow that he will chip another £1billion of our money to help places like Pakistan.
Pakistan has been home to the Taliban for the last 20 years. Do we really want to come to the aid of a terrorist country?
What will become of our money? Siphoned by some African dictator no doubt.
Increasingly Boris does not sound like a Conservative. Loves spending it and loves us paying for it.
He should be careful. There will be more Amershams. The voters will only take so much.

PS: If you plan to buy either car or home insurance I wonder if you might look at my small price comparison site A Spokesman Said as we earn a little commission from each sale which helps fund the research and editorial costs of running the site. It has the same offer as the big ones like Go Compare. Thank you.
