Five

Let’s be clear

  • September 2018 and year to date were 4th hottest on record for the globe.
  • The 10 warmest September global land and ocean surface temperatures have occurred since 2003
  • The last five Septembers (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018) ranking as the five warmest on record.

Also worthy of note are the words of an Australian ex-Prime Minister [then opposition leader] when asked about a Carbon Emissions Trading scheme in 2013:

”Just ask yourself what an emissions trading scheme is all about. It’s a so-called market in the non-delivery of an invisible substance to no one”

A visionary clarion call to a generation? I think not.

I am sure the seminarian and Rhodes Scholar from Oxford would recognise the story of Galileo.

E si scalda ancora [Apologies to Galileo]
