Lost in space

Professor John Beddington, the government’s Chief Scientific Advisor, has rebuked scientists and politicians who exaggerate the impact of global warming. He has urged an honest disclosure of the uncertainty of all climate change predictions and has encouraged open and serious debate on the whole issue. In marked contrast, Ed Miliband has launched another unqualified climate alarmist kite by insisting that the next IPCC report will be dramatically worse that that of 2007. Miliband should listen to his advice instead of ludicrously claiming that sceptical scientists pose a national danger by undermining public “support” for the huge rise in “green” energy bills. This is a very important area of policy and it is alarming that the Minister notionally responsible should show such gross ignorance of both the science and the economics.”
