The only Trump policy I support is his roll-back of the idiotic war on Carbon, and that is the most important issue facing the World today.

It takes a non-politician like Trump to see Climate Change as what it is; an unproven theory, with little real-world evidence to support it. He will be hailed in future decades as the first to see that this Emperor has no clothes.

The economic harm done to the Western World by efforts to halt CO2 emissions are far greater than any possible negative effects of Climate Change, none of which are evident. The Sea is rising very slowly at the same rate it has for the last 10,000 years, there is no evidence that droughts or storms are more prevalent than they were a century ago, and the minor warming experienced between 1975 and 1998 is so small, 0.6 of a degree, that it requires very accurate thermometers to even measure it. It is negligible and beneficial. The release of CO2 locked up in Coal, Gas and Oil back into the environment is hugely beneficial to the natural environment and to humanity’s crops. To quote Freeman Dyson “That is to me the central mystery of climate science. How does it happen that a whole generation of scientific experts is blind to obvious facts?”

Trump needs to fund public education of the obvious facts that the non-climatic effects of carbon dioxide as a sustainer of wildlife and crop plants are enormously beneficial, that the possibly harmful climatic effects of carbon dioxide have been greatly exaggerated, and that the benefits clearly outweigh the possible damage. Climate Change propaganda has brain-washed half the public into believing that Carbon is an evil pollutant: it is actually the building block of all life on this Planet, and too much of it has been removed from the natural Carbon Cycle and stored as Coal, Gas and Oil over the last 20 million years. Burning it in clean modern Power stations fitted with filters and Catalytic converters is just restoring the natural balance.

If Trump achieves the end of Climate Change alarmism, I’ll put up with his other failings.
