“…the damage to our economy the climate change lobby is now costing us is infinitely more destructive to the livelihoods of our grand-children.”
Man-made climate change is “an unsubstantiated hypothesis”
There is “no reproducible evidence” that carbon dioxide levels have increased over the past century, says Woodcock, who blames the green movement for inflicting economic damage on ordinary people.
“Even the term ‘global warming’ does not mean anything unless you give it a time scale,” Professor Woodcock told the Yorkshire Evening Post. “The temperature of the earth has been going up and down for millions of years, if there are extremes, it’s nothing to do with carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, it’s not permanent and it’s not caused by us. Global warming is nonsense.”
Teapot in orbit between the earth and the moon
When asked how can say this when most of the world’s scientists, political leaders and people in general are committed to the theory of global warming, Prof Woodcock answered bluntly:
“This is not the way science works. If you tell me that you have a theory there is a teapot in orbit between the earth and the moon, it’s not up to me to prove it does not exist, it’s up to you to provide the reproducible scientific evidence for your theory.
“Such evidence for the man-made climate change theory has not been forthcoming.”
This lack of evidence has not stopped a whole green industry building up, however. At the behest of that industry, governments have been passing ever more regulations that make life more difficult and expensive.
“…the damage to our economy the climate change lobby is now costing us is infinitely more destructive to the livelihoods of our grand-children. Indeed, we grand-parents are finding it increasingly expensive just to keep warm as a consequence of the idiotic decisions our politicians have taken in recent years about the green production of electricity.”
