PERSONAL, UNDILUTED VIEWS FROM TOM WINNIFRITH

Four Years to save earth – Vivienne Westwood is a scientist

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

- Tom Winnifrith

I read in today’s Metro that we have only got four years to save earth. Well I guess I can stop fretting about my pension plan then. This dire warning comes from a collection of “charities and individuals” who say that failure to address climate change is “reckless and short sighted.”

Er, um okay. If we do not act then it is claimed that we are set to breach EU agreed temperature rises of 2 degrees centigrade. But hang on? The world has actually cooled in the past decade so what evidence is there for this claim? None at all. It is sheer bollocks.

If I say that global warming is a load of hogwash I am attacked for “not being a scientist.” So in order to justify the headline “Earth four years from disaster” which scientist does the Metro wheel out? None other than fashion designer and general “good causes” scary loon Vivienne Westwood. Westwood is about as scientifically qualified as I am (actually , I got A grade O-levels in chemistry and physics and geography for that matter – what are her qualifications?) but she is a celeb.

And so, although she is obviously a mad old bag her word counts on matters like global warming eve when she has got her facts patently wrong. Got it.
