Congrats to Emma Thompson, she knows the litany perfectly.
It takes an Oscar winning actress to keep a smug face while saying something this inane.
“Tony Abbott Climate Change is REAL I’m standing on it!”
I hope she sends another message when she reaches the place called “climate sameness”.
Something tells me this is a high-carbon-footprint way to send a message. Perhaps an email to Tony Abbott might have saved some fish from becoming reckless in 2050?
Waxing Gibberish sends an alternative sign:
There are more gems of wisdom from economist scientist-actress Thompson. She must have a Nanny McPhee trick or Sybill Trelawney divination up her sleeve: she thinks millions of letters can change the Arctic weather.
“Bear in mind that politicians often lose sight of issues that aren’t in front of them all the time.
“So we all need to be bold.
“If tens of millions of us wrote to our leaders demanding action on the Arctic and climate change, well – that could change everything.”
Royal Mail, a new climate forcing then?
In Thompson’s world, it’s all the governments fault. If only they would get out of the way, I mean, give us everything.
Thompson said: “We’re told that it is all our fault, global warming – we want the fuel, we want our cars, and that the oil industry is merely responding to the needs of a greedy public.
“But that’s simply not fair. Most of us want to live cleaner lives, but our governments don’t make these things easily available.
“The changes we need, that the Arctic needs, must come from the top as well as the bottom. We need electric cars to be cheaper and more accessible. We want safer bike lanes in every big city.
“We want plastic bags to be banned for good. We need governments to stand up to the dirty industries that have for so long funded and controlled them, and to give us all an affordable chance to live our lives in a more sustainable way.”
So David Cameron knows how to make cheap electric cars, but the selfish sod is keeping it a secret.
