Forget public transport. You can now drive round in your four by four, without being screamed at by a hysterical lesbian on a bicycle. Unfortunately for our communists turned environmental campaigners, global warming is officially on hold.
In 2007, global temperatures did not rise. Neither did they rise in 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 or 2006. In fact global temperatures have remained flat for the last decade, despite an increase in atmospheric CO2 from 370 ppm to 380 ppm. This is observational fact.
The explanation given for this by the green lobby, is that carbon dioxide induced global warming is continuing, but that it has been offset by other atmospheric changes. However, they only seem to have theories which are unlikely if not impossible.
For those of you who have struggled on public transport for the past decade when you own a perfectly good car, or have traded your foreign holiday for a drizzly week in Bogner Regis, then you might have reason to feel badly deceived.
