Daily Mail - Climate Change
Usually when I refer to this paper I call it the Daily Fail - but not this time.
They have published an excellent article about climate change.
It is well worth reading!

Well, now..... The person.... " Margaret Thatcher".... is conservative..(party leader at one time) ... Michael Howard... is conservative, ( party leader at one time) and the paper reporting it is aligned to the conservative party...
Obviously... no bias has been attached to this piece of journalism..... and , indeed, here is a quote from it...
Although we should not rush to assume it is man-made climate change, common sense demands that we ask the question.
FIrst part..... ( in bold ) True
second part ( in italics ) also true,.... but the quesion is.... Why.... is the conservative party so strong on this?
probably, because they can use it to raise more stealth taxes.. (congestion charge, global warming charge, diesel emissions charge, etc etc etc, )
When was the last great long hot summer...... and when was the one prior to that? I`m only guessing... there was one during the second world war, around 1943/44 35/40 years later...... another one in the 70`s/80`s...... and about 35/40 years later,.... this one ? ? ?? 35/40 years on from the last one....
Not sure about long cold periods,.... but there was one in the early 1960`s..... when tons of snow laid down all over england,..
another in the early 90`s, when we had a very long period of below freezing temps, ( about 2 months if I remember)... ( oh look 30 years since the last one..... )... so maybe we are due for a very hard winter coming sooon... ? ? ? ?
No, I`m not a political person.... just saying....
EDIT EDIT EDIT
On further reading.... it is not really a "report" ... more like a "blow my own trumpet" and another one for the conservative party....
Here are some quotes from many different paragraphs...by the writer...
Margaret Thatcher, in whose government I served,
Four years later, as Environment Secretary, I played a small role
Then, and in the years since, I have had many conversations with climate scientists.
Since 1992, there has been a backlash against the notion
I believe that the extent of this backlash is often exaggerated
In general, I believe, people accept there is a man-made component to the erratic weather
