Well, maybe not. We are changing balances. Thing is, we have no idea what that will effect in the future.
Spending billions on trying to reduce carbon emissions is one giant con that is depriving third world countries of vital funds to tackle famine, HIV and other diseases, Sammy Wilson said.
The DUP minister has been heavily criticised by environmentalists for claiming that ongoing climatic shifts are down to nature and not mankind.
But while acknowledging his views on global warming may not be popular, the East Antrim MP said he was not prepared to be bullied by eco fundamentalists.
“I’ll not be stopped saying what I believe needs to be said about climate
change,” he said.
He said while people in the western world were facing spiralling fuel bills as a result of efforts to cut CO2, the implications in poorer countries were graver.
“What are the problems that face us either locally and internationally. Are those not the things we should be concentrating on?” he asked.
“HIV, lack of clean water, which kills millions of people in third world countries, lack of education.

"Believing in Climate Change will make your coffee taste like gasoline."
"Believing in Climate Change will break your iPod."
"Believing in Climate Change will turn you in to a heterosexual."
"Believing in Climate Change will make you want to get married and have kids, take responsibility for your own success and failure."
People will flea this twenty first century religion in droves.
