Ed Miliband MP has attacked the Mayor of Doncaster’s claim that global warming is a “scam”:
“I am shocked and appalled that the Mayor of Doncaster is describing global warming as a scam. We should trust science not prejudice and the science tells us that climate change is man-made. If left unchecked, it will have severe effects on future generations in Doncaster, and we know from the flooding of 2007 the misery it will cause. It is incredible that Doncaster’s elected Mayor can describe the single biggest threat to our planet in this way.
“Because we need to tackle climate change, it is right that we use renewable energy, including wind farms. Already they are providing the electricity for 2 million UK households, so the Mayor is just plain wrong that about wind energy. While of course there can be legitimate objections to wind turbines, the biggest threat to the English countryside is not the wind turbine but climate change.”Other news from Labour Matters
