GUEST,KP BS: Where's the Global Warming (1541* d) RE: BS: Where's the Global Warming 01 Mar 10


Bruce,
I like this comment from underneath the Brooker article you reference:

'I'm not terribly interested in the rights and wrongs of the IPCC and whether or not climate-change can be influenced by man.

As a Conservative I believe in personal responsibility and cleaning up after myself not expecting someone else to do it for me.

It would be a great shame if all this ballyhoo over the IPCC led to people behaving like Socialist litter-bugs and assuming the State was somehow responsible for clearing up their profligacy.

Global Warming or not, there is no excuse for not using less packaging, being careful with natural resources, recycling wherever practicable and investing in renewable energy that reduces our dependence on the Middle East.

Those would seem to be self-evidently conservative philosophies which we adopted in the last war and would be sensible to make permanent in our lifestyles today.

The alternative is the socialist approach of littering, wasting, unlimited profligacy, expecting someone else to clean it up for free and leaving future generations a rubbish pit country to live in.

England's Green & Pleasant Land won't stay that way if everybody keeps moaning when they're told to clean up after themselves and pay the true costs of rubbish disposal for themselves and accept some discipline in waste collection services...... '
