The headline sums up some of the speakers or yesterday’s climate change protest in London. But we know scientists are vacuous wannabe celebrities. The surprising thing was the showbiz and media luvvies showed themselves even more stupid and out of touch with reality.
Take Emma Thompson. A fine actress but we should remember her job is pretending to be somebody else. and having spent most of her life pretending to be somebody else, when she goes off script she has forgotten that the real Emma Thompson is not very bright.
Take her banal chirruping on the subject of carbon for example:
“Unless we’re carbon free by 2030 the world is buggered,” she told an ecstatic crowd of sheeple.
Emma dear, when you come out with things like that I don’t think science is something you should be worrying your pretty little head about. If the world was carbon free there would be no trees, no grass, no vegetables (that’s right, no vegetables at all, not even Brian Cox) no lefties screching about their politically correct causes, no worms, no beetles, no cheese, no pulled pork, no luvvies, no nothing. It’s all carbon based you see.
And if we did away with carbon dioxide (I’m sure you meant carbon dioxide, silly tart) which is where the plants get their carbon to make leaves and roots and fruit and nuts and berries, there would be nothing to eat (no dear, you couldn’t go to Waitrose and get prepared meals because they’d have nothing to prepare meal with. You couldn’t eat at The Ivy or Riverside Cottage because the’d be in the same boat. Meat you say? But cows and sheep and pigs eat carbon based organisms, that’s how they make meat.
So really Emma, if the world IS carbon free by 2030 we’re not just buggered, we’re fucking fucked.
See what I’m driving at here folks, only stupid people believe getting rid of carbon dioxide will stop man made climate change. For the rest of us, as that great philosopher Eric Cantona said, “He who forecasts all perils will never sail the seas.”
Life is and always has been a struggle against adversity. For too long politicians and scientists (science was ever fascism’s whore) have managed to maintain the illusion that all the existential threats to humanity had been controlled and neutralised. They lied (well what else did you expect?) they were not controlling anything, just kicking the can down the road.
It would of course be ungentlemanly of me to raise the issue of how many times a year Emma Thompson flies back and forward across the Atlantic in pursuit of wealth, fame and politically correct causes. I’d bet her carbon footprint is several million times bigger than your or mine however. Fucking hypocrite .
