Having spent yesterday availing myself of the convenience of modern air travel, I tune in the BBC this morning to hear an all out attack on this necessity of everyday life. Just after 7am, there was someone on to claim that we should stop ALL domestic flights, this was balanced by further interviews with those who suggested that taxes on domestic and business would have to be scaled up IF we want to continue with flight. Naturally the prospect of a (much needed) third runway at Heathrow was damned. All of this to save the planet, of course. Curiously, the BBC could not find anyone to oppose the central contention that AGW is responsible for this pesky global warming. The science is settled. For good measure, and for the devout, Thought for the Day invoked Jesus encouraging recycling. Great to be back here and listening to the State Global Warming Alarmist.
