Climate Fools Day Rally
"Politicians are more prepared to have people die of extreme weather events
Wednesday Oct 27th 2PM at Parliament
than undermine their Climate Change scam…"
Look what was said in 2008…
Snow blankets London for Global Warming debate "Snow fell as the House of Commons debated Global Warming yesterday - the first October fall in the metropolis since 1922. The Mother of Parliaments was discussing the Mother of All Bills for the last time, in a marathon six hour session."

Climate Change Bill
makes chilling reading “As MPs droned on about the need to fight global warming, Peter Lilley drew the Speaker's attention to the fact that, outside on the streets of Westminster, snow was falling. It was London's first October snowfall for 70 years, and similarly unseasonal snow was carpeting a wide swathe of Britain. In all that six hours of debate, only two MPs questioned the need for such a Bill, which had swept through its second reading with only five opposed. The sole MP who tried to raise the matter of the cost of the Bill - which could run to trillions of pounds if all its measures were implemented - was Mr Lilley. He was ruled out of order by the Speaker. If the Bill's intent is taken seriously, the cost of cutting our CO2 emissions by 80 per cent would cripple our economy, closing down much of what remains of our industry and rendering most motorised transport impossible.” by Christopher Booker Daily Telegraph.
Nigel Lawson's speech before the House of Lords
"Nevertheless, we have the amendments that come back from the Commons to us today. The Bill will go down in history, and future generations will see it, as the most absurd Bill that this House and Parliament as a whole as ever had to examine"...."I should like to address as briefly as I can—because I do not propose to speak on any subsequent occasion on this subject— why I think that the Bill is so absurd. Let us pretend that the planet is warming. We know, of course, that it is not. The figures published each year and, indeed, monthly, by the Met Office or the Hadley Centre, which is a department of the Met Office in association with the climate research unit of the University of East Anglia, show without any doubt that there has been no warming so far this century at all. Some people say that there has been a cooling but, although that has been the slight trend, I think that the margin for error is so great that I would not press that, but there has certainly been no warming."
UK: Climate Change Bill 28th October - Laws should not be passed without evidence by Piers Corbyn As written to arrive on MPs Email at dawn on Oct 28th 2008. Piers says "The response then to the simple question for MPs to show evidence to support their Climate Change Bill measures was zero evidence. There were a small number who asked for further information from us and conversations revealed that most of those prepared to even talk about it went along with the Bill even it was nonsense because:
(i) they couldn't afford (politically) to oppose it &/or
(ii) they wanted it to be used in another mission like taxing airlines because they believed such measures were right irrespective of justification. One notes 'The means justifies the ends' approach has led to at least one war recently.
There is one shining exception - Sammy Wilson DUP MP for East Antrim - who has spoken out in favour of evidence based legislation and we expect to hear from him at the Conference on Oct 28th.
Why are we STILL Waiting?
There has still been no response to the letter to the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon from 'The gang of 13' world scientists requesting evidence of CO2 driving Climate": See Letter to UN Sec General 14 July 2008
or the letter 3 months earlier
initiated by Hans Schreuder Analytic Chemist to Dr Rajenda Pachauri chair of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) (still carried on a UN site!)
Of all these or related letters sent to the UN Gen Sec, the IPCC chair, the UK House of Commons Environmental Audit Committee and the Prime Minister's office only one has replied at all namely Gordon Brown's office which took the form of the Met Office writing back on his behalf directing us to the UN IPCC
