VALE CLIVE JAMES


In Climate Change: the facts 2017, Clive James wrote an article entitled
Mass Death Dies Hard. 


When you tell people once too often that the missing extra heat is hiding in the ocean, they will switch over to watch Game of Thrones where the dialogue is less ridiculous and all the threats come true. The proponents of man-made climate catastrophe asked us for so many leaps of faith that they were bound to run out of credibility in the end.
Now that they finally seem to be doing so, it could be a good time for those of us who have never been convinced by all those urgent warnings to start warning each other that we might be making a completely senseless tactical error if we expect the elastic cause of the catastrophists, and all its exponents, to go away in a hurry.

An excellent piece (read in full -HERE) and Clive ended with

For as long as the climate change fad lasted it always depended on poppycock and it would surely be unwise to believe that mankind’s capacity to believe in fashionable nonsense can be cured by the disproportionately high cost of a temporary embarrassment. I’m almost sorry that I won't be here for the ceremonially unveiling of the next threat. Almost certainly the opening feast will take place in Paris, with a happy sample of all the world’s young scientists facing the fragrance remains of their first-ever plate of foie gras, while vowing that it will not be the last.

  1. As to the title of the piece, it is from Paul Ehrlich's predictions

    ....in the case of America’s Professor Ehrlich, has left him untouched ever since he predicted that the world would soon run out of copper. In those days, when our current phase of the long discussion about man’s attack on nature was just beginning, he predicted mass death by extreme cold. Lately he predicts mass death by extreme heat. But he has always predicted mass death by extreme something.........
