"There is now little to no chance of maintaining the rise in global surface temperature at below 2C, despite repeated high-level statements to the contrary," said Kevin Anderson, from the University of Manchester.

But what would he know? He’s only a scientist. He wants energy rationing and less car use. If nutters like Anderson get their way we’ll all end up riding around on bicycles.

Fortunately this man’s madness doesn’t impress anyone, and the derision is global. In San Francisco they know a global warming fanatic when they see one. Here in the U.K. there’s a man on the Telegraph who knows one of the most monstrous con tricks in history when he sees it.
