Guest Post by Ryanair's O'Leary: I believe it's all a load of bullshit
Today, I can a offer a post (copied from an article in the Independent) by another famous guest blogger: Michael O'Leary who is CEO if Ryanair, the highly successful European lowbudget airline. As CEO of an airline, O'Leary has to be an expert in weather and climate. He cannot afford to make any mistakes. Imagine that he sent his aircrafts into a thunderstorm and they crashed and all passengers died. That would have devastating consequences: the share prices of Ryanair would plummet on the stock market. So this is a man whom we surely can trust when it comes to the climate.
I believe it's all a load of bullshit
Nobody can argue that there isn't climate change. The climate's been changing since time immemorial.
Do I believe there is global warming? No, I believe it's all a load of bullshit. But it's amazing the way the whole f***ing eco-warriors and the media have changed. It used to be global warming, but now, when global temperatures haven't risen in the past 12 years, they say 'climate change'.
Well, hang on, we've had an ice age. We've also had a couple of very hot spells during the Middle Ages, so nobody can deny climate change. But there's absolutely no link between man-made carbon, which contributes less than 2pc of total carbon emissions [and climate change].
Scientists argue there is global warming because they wouldn't get half of the funding they get now if it turns out to be completely bogus.
The scientific community has nearly always been wrong in history anyway. In the Middle Ages, they were going to excommunicate Galileo because the entire scientific community said the Earth was flat... I mean, it is absolutely bizarre that the people who can't tell us what the f***ing weather is next Tuesday can predict with absolute precision what the f***ing global temperatures will be in 100 years' time. It's horseshit.
The IPCC is a load of utter tosh
