Lorry driver tackles a less than certain truth
High Court Justice Burton has just ruled that
"former US vice-president Al Gore's film, An Inconvenient Truth, was 'one-sided' and would breach education rules unless accompanied by a warning.
The Justice found that Gore's 'documentary' contained 'nine scientific errors'.
The High Court action was brought by a father who accused the government of "'brainwashing' children with propaganda." He is lorry driver and Kent school governor Stewart Dimmock.
Like the Justice, we agree that climate change is occurring. Indeed, climate change never stops.
We also think it would be wise to create and use energy more efficiently.
The question is how much do we humans contribute to climate change? If it is the Sun, not human beings, that is warming the Earth (and Mars and other planets) as many scientists believe, why spend loads of money trying to change what we can't change? Why not focus on malaria eradication and clean water for the millions of people who lack it and helping the whales and preserving forests?
Stewart Dimmock, who has a friendly and homely face, believes that competition of ideas is essential to the well-being of a free people. Cheers!
