Floods Silver Lining Is Less Denier Idiots
Hopefully, ten weeks of torrential rain and storms sweeping in from the Atlantic has shifted the mindset of the thankfully dwindling few who remained sceptical about climate change.
Floods, draughts, hurricanes, typhoons and heatwaves happening elsewhere in the World had little impact but now it is on their doorstep and happening in their own back yard, it must focus a few more minds that were otherwise closed to the idea that Mother Nature was reacting angrily to the decades of pollutants we had pumped into the atmosphere.
This should be the turning point where millions more of us start thinking about the environment and green policies, listening to the climate scientists and finally apprehending that Climate Change is here now and although it is too late to stop it coming and this amount of damage is being caused by only a fraction of the temperature rise we can expect, we can start to stop it becoming as bad as it could be.
Of course there will still be the ignorant, useful idiots of those with the most to lose from green policies who will continue to do their utmost to muddy the waters but they were already a rapidly shrinking and irrelevant band.
Hopefully this will raise awareness that something is seriously wrong with the climate patterns not just in Britain but all around the world and the selfish anti-social climate deniers will be pushed even further to the lunatic fringes and the rest of us can dismiss their dangerous rhetoric and start thinking more deeply about what we have done to our planet and how to limit the damage that is coming our way without hearing the wrongheaded twitterings of the moronic climate change deniers.
