Trust is vanishing

So says Diederik Samsom – the importance of which is conveyed by Klein Verzet who has obligingly supplied us with a translation from the Dutch.

Marc Morano tells us: "The statist cabal that has ruled the climate debate since the UN IPCC's inception in 1988 is now tumbling down before our eyes. The so-called 'gold-standard' of scientific review turns out to be counterfeit. Global warming is now undergoing the fastest ever collapse of any modern political movement."

He is, perhaps, a tad premature – but he is not wrong. The wall is crumbling – even Pachauri's most loyal supporters, such as Andrew Weaver, is bailing out.

More will follow, but then we have to confront the fact that most of the "global warming" legislation in the UK is of EU origin. We will be confronting an organisation that has built its reputation on a failed religion – and then it will start to get really interesting, especailly as the gravy train reaches down to the lowest levels.
