After a long, hot summer beset by record temperatures, drought and deadly fires…
Yes, the weather has been the talk of 2018, hasn’t it? Just like…errr, every other year since newspapers began.
What this fiasco reveals is the huge threat to rational climate action posed by the rise of the far right. It also shows the risks from Brexit, as the links between climate denial and Brexit are well documented.
…it is time for those of us who back the overwhelming scientific consensus on climate change to take back control.
Oh, OK. Whatever. But …. well, just how do you plan to do that?
That is why I joined other politicians, scientists, academics and campaigners in signing a letter pledging we would refuse to debate those who deny that human-caused climate change is real.
These people are deranged, aren’t they?
