British climatologist: Halt economic growth in ‘rich’ world

Members of the British Royal Society attending the latest round of UN-sponsored global warming talks in Cancun this week (where, by the way, it’s a balmy 78 degrees) called for tough new measures to cut carbon emissions, predicting that if they are not adopted, temperatures will rise catastrophically.

“Professor Kevin Anderson, Director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, said the only way to reduce global emissions enough, while allowing the poor nations to continue to grow, is to halt economic growth in the rich world over the next twenty years,” according to The Telegraph.

Prof. Anderson admitted that electricity rationing would likely be necessary to achieve the desired decrease in carbon emissions. “I am not saying we have to go back to living in caves,” he said. But getting rid of full size refrigerators, wearing sweaters instead of turning on the furnace, and not being able to afford petrol for the family car  – all of which he calls necessary “adjustments in everyday life” – comes pretty darn close.

Meanwhile, back in the home country, global warming is literally on ice:

“Snow storms paralyze the country…300 passengers spend night on train…Empty shelves at food stores as severe [cold] weather hits deliveries… Forecasters warned of the big freeze tightening its grip for the rest of the week, with more snow on the way and temperatures expected to plunge as low as -25 C,” blared stories and headlines in the Daily Mail.

For Brits, global warming is currently the least of their problems. Just imagine what the current cold snap in Europe would be like with electricity rationing, and you understand what sort of world the global warming fanatics are aiming for.
