Global Warming? What a load of poppycock!

Professor David Bellamy, Environmentalist, botanist, ecologist, author and broadcaster, Professor David Bellamy is one of the most widely recognised and respected naturalists in the world. The Special Professor of Botany at the University of Nottingham, David is a Founder Director of the Conservation Foundation. He is also President and Patron of numerous organisations connected with wildlife and the environment, recently wrote on the topic of global warming. He starts off with the following:

Whatever the experts say about the howling gales, thunder and lightning we've had over the past two days, of one thing we can be certain. Someone, somewhere - and there is every chance it will be a politician or an environmentalist - will blame the weather on global warming.

But they will be 100 per cent wrong. Global warming - at least the modern nightmare version - is a myth. I am sure of it and so are a growing number of scientists. But what is really worrying is that the world's politicians and policy makers are not.

Instead, they have an unshakeable in what has, unfortunately, become one of the central credos of the environmental movement. Humans burn fossil fuels, which release increased levels of carbon dioxide - the principal so-called greenhouse gas - into the atmosphere, causing the atmosphere to heat up.

They say this is global warming: I say this is poppycock. Unfortunately, for the time being, it is their view that prevails.

As a result of their ignorance, the world's economy may be about to divert billions, nay trillions of pounds, dollars and roubles into solving a problem that actually doesn't exist. The waste of economic resources is incalculable and tragic.

David Bellamy is a leading environmentalist who understands there are real battles to fight and win without wasting resources tilting at windmills. Read the entire article.
