Random Run in My Tights Denier
I am an androgenic climate change sceptic. I do not wish to be labelled a "denier" simply because I follow the dictum that those who assert must prove. The rubric "denier" does not lightly transfer from anti holocaust polemicists to scientific agnostics. So please get off my back those of you who proclaim certainty. My initial doubts surfaced in the face of massive variations in earthly temperatures over millenia: ice sheets ebbing and flowing; oceans rising and falling; mountains raised up and pulled apart. Then Booker's The Real Global Warming Disaster highlighted the messianic zeal of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the lack of peer reviewing of key papers, the editing of data and conclusions to hype things up: the naked dishonesty. If you have not yet read Booker you really ought to. Just because I have serious reservations about ACC dosen't mean that I welcome human overpopulation, or the belching of pollutants into the sky. We really ought to care more for our fragile planet. Getting back to ACC I once harboured a hope that global warming might mean better hillwalking conditions along the western coast. But then it dawned on me. If Ireland's mountains were located in a Corfu like milieu we would soon be overrun by hordes from the east. I accept my beautiful western mountains as they are...wild wet windy and occasionally, but never dependably, bathed in beautiful sunshine. I like walking on the edge, remote from the madding crowds. In the words of Hilary Rodham Clinton: "I honour what we've been through together"
