Climate hysteria


THE prophecies of catastroph­e by UN climate scientists yesterday were distinctly familiar. Disastrous global warming. Disastrous floods, heatwaves and famine. Time running out for humanity.

Yet we’ve heard such hair- raising prediction­s many times over the years and they often fall short of reality.

Nobody believes more strongly than the Mail that we should strive to look after our planet for our children and grandchild­ren.

But wouldn’t it be easier to trust the green lobby – and encourage people to make sacrifices to help the environmen­t – if such hysterical language was avoided?
