I was just watching the local news on the idiot box tonight and note that they are still giving undue prominence to the anti fracking protestors at Balcombe in Sussex. Now I know that quite a few of those protestors are from a group called The Campaign Against Climate Change (CACC).  As far as I can see this group are made up from left wing sociologists, green party activists, and naive idiots who believe that only they know what's best.

When you visit their site and read their "Who we are" page, you find, shock horror, that the most of them have little or no science training (WTF is a PGSE in Science, when it's at home?)
Of course though, all the guardian readers that flock to this blog  (Spits) will be overjoyed to find the Honorary chairman is their very own, *drum roll*, George Monbiot. When you look at the rest it's a gaggle of a mediocrity of people who have jumped onto a band wagon, and don't realise the wheels are falling off fast.

I really despair when I see people like this who don't seem to inhabit the real world that the rest of us live in, being so bloody stupid. If they want to live in yurts, eat tofu, and die of the cold in the winter, then they may do so. What I want is an energy supply that is reliable, affordable, and relatively clean. By achieving that we will enable our kids, and grand kids to survive. If we don't innovate, we die.

(Don't fucking dare mention bird mincers or solar panels).

Climate twats


  1. It's easy to leave a comment of the Cacc site - Ijust did (but they won't like it)! Muppets!

  2. Did all those outsiders walk, or, cycle, to their protest?

    Thought not.

    Bloody hypocrites.

    Oh, and the residents of Balcombe* - where does the gas, oil & electricity used to preserve your life of comfort come from?

    * And those tree-huggers too.

    1. Joe: You're forgettng just how much energy is required to smelt the steel for a bicycle frame, and the oil required for the tyres and grease on the bearings. Terribly bad for the planet on a dust-to-dust basis.

      Anything other than walking bare-foot to site is a complete sell-out of their "principles" (hand-knitted wool socks might be permitted).

  3. PGSE is probably a mis-spelling of PGCE which stands for Post-Graduate Certification of Education, in other words the person is a "qualified" teacher who doesn't have a science degree (otherwise they'd have put B.Sc. or something.

    In other words, half-educated, but fully occupied in indoctrinating the young.

  4. I have just watched the latest instalment of the protest. As has already been said, I bet none of them walked to the site, they all expect to turn up the central heating when it gets cold and they all expect regular deliveries of hand knitted tofu burgers. Do they know how much methane a horse puts out and are they ready to deal with the mountains of manure when they mange to send us back to the middle ages?

  5. Not sure what to make of this case but it looks like everyone has their price.
