Lucia Climate change is a con - UK Environment Minister

“I think in 20 years’ time we will look back at this whole climate change debate and ask ourselves how on earth were we ever conned into spending the billions of pounds which are going into this without any kind of rigorous examination of the background, the science, the implications of it all. Because there is now a degree of hysteria about it, fairly unformed hysteria I’ve got to say as well.
I can't wait until NZ politicians start dumping the climate change religion that we've taken on in recent years.

It is heartening to see that he remains committed to reducing wasteful energy expenditure:

“So yes there are things we can do. If you want to express it terms of carbon neutral, I just express it terms of making the place more efficient, less wasteful and hopefully that will release money to do the proper things that we should be doing.”

Sustainability is a worthy goal, and it's reasons speak for itself. Chasing CO2 emissions may be less critical than reducing pollution and investing in R&D to improve clean energy sources.

The amount of pollution finding its way into our oceans is also disturbing.
