As long as Cameron doesn't want the power to represent me, he won't get my vote. It's as simple as that.

The global warming hypothesis depends on an observation that CO2 absorbs and emits heat radiation. This isn't disputed by anyone and in the absence of other factors is predicted to raise temperatures by about 1 degree Centigrade by 2100. In other words an amount politicians can ignore. To get to the the figures of 2 - 6 degress centigrade by the end of the century put forward by the UN IPCC requires a positive feedback or amplification of the temperature by way of less low to mid level clouds and more water vapour, a greenhouse gas. And it's the the reduced cloud prediction which even the most ardent of man made warmistas aknowledge is uncertain. Currently the scientists don't know if the cloud feedback is negative - clouds increase with temperature (negligible change in temperature), zero feedback (CO2 temperature change) or positive (hot!) So don't believe scientists who say the physics is settled. By their own words it's not.

I fear it's history repeating itself. Swap the Treaty of Versailles for the EU treaties with the attendent helplessness and you've got the reason for the rise of the BNP.

Seriously the Conservative party need to take advice from engineers and scientists to prevent this rubbish coming out. Have you ever thought it would actually be politically smart to be the only party to represent ordinary voters and not Zak Goldsmith, Prince Charles and assorted pressure groups.

It's really simple, offer freedoms to the majority and they'll vote for you. Thatcher knew this. I thought Cameron was getting it and then up pops Gummer and co. from the Major era promising the opposite. So so stupid. I hope I'm wrong but right now I don't think Cameron has the political intelligence to turn it around.

The stupid thing is energy consumption of non renewables will probably fall for technological and telecommuting reasons anyway. When the science of climate change is so unclear, why get involved in the CO2/Solar debate.
