Mark Kinver, as I have pointed out before, is as fervent a BBC greenie as Richard Black and Roger Harrabin, if not more so. And here he is, given a political platform to comment on the Cancun so-called agreement. First he is worried that no “legally binding” deal was reached (that is, he is sad that we have not had billions of pounds of taxes imposed on us); second, he reports comment from the greenie extremist blog 350 or Bust (which believes that more snow is a sure sign of AGW), but – surprise, surprise – not from any of the sceptical commentators who have summarised the outcome of Cancun; and thirdly, he appears to think that a “twitter-storm” from disaffected youth (who know the truth about AGW) was responsible for keeping Chris Huhne at Cancun rather than dashing home to vote over student financing. Mr Kinver also appears (on my reading of his phrasing) to think that the attack on Camilla by these self-same students was rather amusing and inconsequential.
I have news for Mr Kinver. Chris Huhne stayed in Cancun for the reasons that our bloated politicians attend these junkets; he’s addicted to power and enjoys putting his fat, greedy snout in the trough. It’s true that he’s also a fanatic eco-fascist, but the idea that he would make decisions about his schedule because students are worried about global warming is risible in the extreme.
