Global Warming: Sammy Wilson And The ‘Hysterical Pseudo-Religion’

by | 5th, September 2008

SAYS Northern Ireland’s environment minister, Sammy Wilson: Green activists’ views on climate change are a “hysterical pseudo-religion.”

Yeah. Northern Ireland has an environment minister. Who knew?

“The tactic used by the “green gang” is to label anyone who dares disagree with their view of climate change as some kind of nutcase who denies scientific fact. Reasoned debate must replace the scaremongering of the green climate alarmists.”

He says “bravo“.

John Woods of Friends of the Earth said Mr Wilson was “like a cigarette salesman denying that smoking causes cancer”.


Wilson’s comments are not supported by the most recent findings. For example, Jonathan Cowie’s Climate Change: Biological and Human Impacts (2007), concludes that increased major floods could well happen in the summer despite European summers becoming drier. Seemingly paradoxically, computer models predict an increase in intense summer rainfall with global warming.
