BBC News at 6pm today included its daily climate change propaganda scare by trying to make us feel guilty if we go away this weekend by air or car and quoting ridiculous figures of thousands of tons of CO2 being put into the air. These figures come from 'scientists' and we ordinary mortals have no way of knowing how accurate the figures are or even if they exists at all. They also led the news with the homecoming of the 'heroes' of Iran and sent a reporter by helicopter to follow the helicopters which shipped the 'hostages' to their base in Devon! No CO2 there then. Later there was an item from some snowy bound wasteland where the reporter, (who presumably got there by canoe), stated that one (!) man in the area was deeply concerned because the local glacier was shrinking. It is what glaciers do! They shrink, then grow again, then shrink, then grow, and so on. Really you cannot make it up. People have flocked to the coast, and overseas at Bank Holidays for ever and we are still alive to tell the tale. But the BBC shot themselves in the foot by stating that rail travel would not add to the pollution problem because the number of people who were travelling for leisure was offset by the number of people who would not be commuting. Presumably people do not commute by car, bus or plane... What is going on?
