Dihydrogen Monoxide is the most deadly and widespread pollutant on the planet, contributing hundreds of times more to global warming than all the greenhouse gases combined.
Evil, maneating sharks thrive in it, including Oceanic Whitetips. It is the breeding ground for all manner of noxious species from malarial mosquitos, to bilharzia to the terrifying Candiru fish which swims up a fellow’s urine stream while he’s weeing and can only be removed by radical penidectomy. In winter it causes cars to slip off the road and crash and ice skaters to fall through cracks and die horribly just like in that scene in the Omen, or is it Omen II? In summer, just an inch of it is enough to drown you. It’s a major constituent of acid rain. It erodes everything from soil to steel. It conceals crocodiles, alligators and piranhas. (H/T R Campbell)
So it’s no wonder that when campaigners from CFACT asked delegates at Cancun to sign a petition calling for a ban on this evil substance they found plenty of willing takers. I wonder if the senior executives at British Sky Broadcasting, John Lewis partnership, Johnson Matthey, Kingfisher, Lloyds Banking, Tesco, Shell UK and Unilever would care to join them? Certainly, going by the joint letter they wrote to the Daily Telegraph this morning, they’re in easily the same league of gullibility and stupidity.
Sir, We welcome the Committee on Climate Change’s analysis on how to meet the 2050 emissions target as quickly and cost-effectively as possible and its argument that Britain should not allow slow progress toward [sic] an international framework on climate change to restrict government action to reduce emissions.
As members of the Prince of Wales’s Corporate Leaders Group on Climate Change, we have long argued that action on climate change is both imperative for preventing dangerous impacts and an opportunity to expand our economy and develop leadership in the new, low-carbon industries.
The case for bold action is stronger than ever….In the meantime Britain should show leadership and demonstrate that a low-carbon future is not only possible, but beneficial.
Presumably none of them lives in Scotland then, where according to some reports, wintry conditions are so bad that stranded motorists are only managing to stay alive by deep frying one another in sump oil.
