UK environment minister: Man-made climate change a "con"

Another brave soul--surprisingly this time a politician--comes forward to state the truth. More and more non-believers are doing so, especially since the low sunspot activity (lowest since 1900) has contributed to record setting cold over the past year. Most in the U.K. disbelieve in AGW, thank God. Of course, others of academic importance are saying the same things...and being ignored.

Spending billions on trying to reduce carbon emissions is one giant con that is depriving third world countries of vital funds to tackle famine, HIV and other diseases, Sammy Wilson said.

The DUP minister has been heavily criticised by environmentalists for claiming that ongoing climatic shifts are down to nature and not mankind.

But while acknowledging his views on global warming may not be popular, the East Antrim MP said he was not prepared to be bullied by eco fundamentalists.

“I’ll not be stopped saying what I believe needs to be said about climate change,” he said.

Oh come on, these 'so called experts' are just ignoring the fact that the 'science is in'.

I like to hear about European skeptics, sometimes I worry that they are all crazy over there.

In which way? Science for or against AGW? In my opinion, the science and empirical data clearly show the fallibility of the AGW theory.

Thank God for the European skeptics...may they live long and prosper!
