Climate-change scientists have pounced, saying that rising global temperatures caused by human activity are making the heatwaves gripping the northern hemisphere more likely to recur.
After all, global warming was invented to keep climate scientists in taxpayer-funded comfort. So could they explain ‘The Beast from the East’ – the cold wave which swept Britain in February and March – causing the deaths of thousands of sheep and cattle in the snow?
Could they explain their 1970 warning that there would be an Ice Age by 2000?
Could they explain their 1976 warning that global cooling would cause a world war by 2000?
Could they explain their 1989 prophecy that global warming and rising sea levels would wipe entire nations off the map by 2000?
Could they finally explain why Al Gore’s Doomsday warning in his 2006 scaremongering film An Inconvenient Truth that sea levels would rise by 20ft ‘in the near future’
has not even remotely happened?
I thought not.
