Hello, friends – although, judging from last night’s meeting of the Parliamentary Labour Party, I fear that some of our so-called “friends” are in fact enemies! But if they think they can spit in Our Jeremy’s face whilst stabbing him in the back, they have another think coming, and sooner than they think!
Friends, this is no time to ditch the ship’s captain, while we are all at sea! We are in truly uncharted waters at this present moment in time, and dropping the pilot in mid-stream would only show that we had completely lost the plot! Instead, we must put our collective shoulders to the wheel, our best feet forward, our backs to the wall and our heads in the sand, and close ranks behind our Leader, and give him the loyalty that he has truly earned!
Anyway, enough of all this tittle-tattle and gossip about trivia that is of absolutely no interest to anyone whatsoever, quite frankly! What I want to talk about today is far more important. It is, in fact, the single most important problem facing Personkind, and it is such an utterly terrifying problem that it keeps me awake all night, and often all day too.
It is a subject that makes me very angry, as I’m sure it does you, too. And it is about time that we all rose up in revolt against it – and I don’t mean just Jeremy and me who, after all, have been revolting for years, but all of us!
Terrifying problem, friends!
I refer, of course, to the utterly terrifying problem of Global Warming, otherwise known as Man-Made Climate Change, but which I prefer to call Person-Made Catastrophic Climate Chaos (PMCCC), whose effects are daily becoming more apparent to those of us with eyes in the back of our heads, and which show no sign of abating.
And, if this weren’t bad enough, all around us are neoliberal Deniers, who have the effrontery to claim – against the firm belief of well over 100% of Climate Scientists that the Science is settled – that recent snow, rain, cold spells, warm spells, sunshine, wind, droughts, floods, etc. etc. (the list is quite literally endless) are just part of a continuously changing climate and not part of what all of us (or at any rate, those of us not in the pay of Big Oil) know is PMCCC. Our planet is literally frying, yet these people are more concerned about making a fast buck than about the rest of us literally drowning! And then they have the effrontery to complain when we call them Deniers!
Weather is not Climate, friends!
Of course, we have had Deniers before! There were those people who, back in the 1970s, denied the clear scientific evidence that a new Ice Age was imminent – often the same people, incidentally, who also claimed that the oil wouldn’t run out in 30 years’ time! More recently, these same Deniers claimed – against all the Scientific evidence of the time – that the Millennium Bug wouldn’t lead to total chaos as the Year 2000 dawned, and that there would not be widespread epidemics of BSE, SARS, bird-flu, swine-flu etc. etc., wiping out of most of the human race in the process. And despite such a track record of total denial, they still expect us to take them seriously!
Is there no limit to these Deniers’ folly? A few years ago, they made the totally absurd claim that the run of very cold winters in the UK were not necessarily a result of Person-Made Climate Change – and not content with that, they are now claiming that the recent mild winters in the UK are also not necessarily a result of Person-Made Climate Change! (For heavens sake, Deniers! Make your minds up!) They also claim that there is no certainty of any link between recent freak weather events and Person-Made Climate Change – just proving that, in their total lack of Scientific knowledge, they do not understand the difference between weather and climate! Talk about deluded!
Strong Message Here
And now these evil Deniers are attempting to claim, against all the evidence – which is agreed by well over 100% of all reputable Climate Scientists, i.e. Michael Mann – that solar panels do not produce prodigious quantities of power at night, and that wind turbines do not generate much electricity when the wind isn’t blowing! Words totally fail me!
Given that the Science of Person-Made Catastrophic Climate Chaos is totally settled, and only a handful of misfits, n’er-do-wells, subversives, trouble-makers, ignoramuses, right-wing cranks, e.g. Piers Corbyn, and those in the pay of Big Oil and the 1% dispute this, is it not time that a democratic decision was made to democratically suppress these troublesome people, by classifying their comments as Denier Hate Crime?
After all, what use is so-called “free speech” when the planet is totally frying, and humankind is being literally drowned as a result of these evil Deniers’ policies?
