**** The World, I Wanna Get Rich

Also known as the Copenhagen Summit.

I’m not going to go into the scientific evidence for man-made global warming here. I’ve read arguments from both sides, and for me the crucial factor is that the vast majority of scientists, while they might disagree about the amount of man-made global warming, all seem to think that it is something critical which needs to be addressed.

But even if you don’t believe it’s man made — or only believe a tiny proportion of it is man made — then what you’re doing amounts to a bet. I’ll stake paying a few quid less tax against the potential loss of large areas of the planet becoming uninhabitable for humans.

Personally, in this sort of circumstance I don’t care what the odds are, I don’t like the stake we’ve just put up.

So I’d like to say something to all the governments of the world for failing to reach any sort of meaningful deal over carbon dioxide emissions — they’ve failed to cut them enough, and they’ve failed to make any sort of binding agreement.

Fuck you. Fuck you very much indeed.

On the plus point though, I live on a hill 128m above sea level. Or, as we’re risking it being called in the future, ‘an island’.
