Crowds go cold on climate cost
[Maurice Newman] From the UN down, the climate change delusion is a gigantic money tree. It is a tyranny that, despite its pretensions, favours the rich and politically powerful at the expense of the poor and powerless. But the madness of the crowds is waning and, as Mackay writes of the perpetrators: "Punishment is sure to overtake them sooner or later." We can only hope it comes before most of us descend into serfdom.

Ironically, this time it is Union Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas Veerappa Moily who has been offered the additional ‘role’ of handling the Environment portfolio. In certain quarters, the exit of his predecessor, Ms Jayanthi Natarajan, is being viewed as a punishment to her for taking a hard stand on green clearances for big infrastructure projects.

Before her, Mr Jairam Ramesh was also similarly shunted out of the Environment Ministry. The latter is often credited with having single-handedly put green issues on top of the Government’s agenda. No sooner than he had done that, he was booted out.
