What rot

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

Ed­i­tor,

In the ar­ti­cle, ‘Flood calls for re­pair’, May 22, PCC man­ager of waste and water ser­vices John Gibbs trots out the un­sub­stan­ti­ated PC bo­gey­man mantra which seems oblig­a­tory in such ar­ti­cles these days. ‘‘and cli­mate change is in­creas­ing the fre­quency of heavy rain storms’’. What rot.

‘‘Cli­mate change’’ has be­come the mean­ing­less catch-all cliche ever since ‘‘global warm­ing’’ was shown to be a con. Heavy rain storms and floods are noth­ing new, and the cur­rent fad re ‘‘cli­mate change’’ has noth­ing to do with the cli­mate or the nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment and ev­ery­thing to do with pol­i­tics of the so­cial­ist sort.
