Whether you agree or disagree with their polices, everyone should be concerned with the collusion between the media and mainstream parties in trying to slander UKIP in recent weeks.
And of course, it is a good thing that the Conservatives/Labour become more aware that the man on the street is very angry with the metropolitan elite's dominance in deciding the direction of this country.
I just found out that TSR has an article on the elections, with this thread linked off of it. So if we could *possibly* stop having a petty squabble over global warming and stick to UKIP policies. I'm aware that they intend to cut a lot of green policies because a certain number of UKIP MPs don't believe in it (that's the most neutral way I could say that, honestly), but it really shouldn't be a major concerning factor.
Since I need to revise anyway, I'm leaving with the statement: CO2 has been proven unequivocally to act as a greenhouse gas on small, observable scales. Global temperatures have risen with increasing CO2 output. This is AFAIK the fastest rate of climate change ever, homo sapiene evolved during an ice age and are not equipped for high temperatures, and the rate is accelerating (see the IPCC graph earlier). Even if you refuse the linking to man's activities, you're blind or stupid if you think that at some point releasing huge quantities of a known greenhouse gas won't have an adverse effect.
Unless someone has notes on Blood Brothers, Lord of the Flies or Tourism, don't contact me until the weekend or reply to this pose directly. I don't care anymore.
