UK to out do Pol Pot to respond to catastrophic global warming

In today’s Telegraph (UK) I was somewhat stunned to read about a report modeling three global warming scenarios. Since I actually started paying attention to the global warming fiasco only a few short months ago I have read a lot of unbelievable nonsense masquerading as science, absurd predictions by scientists of the extinction of the human race within less than 90 years and much other utter rubbish. The Telegraph article presents a report that is right up there on the madness scale and this “research” was directed by none other than the UK’s top scientist, John Beddington.

“Mass migration northwards to new towns in Scotland, Wales and northeast England may be needed to cope with climate change and water shortages in the South East, according to an apocalyptic vision set out by the Government Office for Science.
The Government would ease pressure on the South East by planning to “disperse citizens to three new towns in Dumfries and Galloway, Northumberland and Powys”.

Three hundred Mad Scientists and lackeys in the UK have produced a report entitled Land Use Futures: Making the Most of Land in the 21st Century. John Beddington, the Government’s chief scientific adviser, directed the “research” (a term no doubt used loosely here). He apparently says that climate change and the growing population would present Britain with difficult choices about how it used its (or rather YOUR) land.

So now we have the “scientists” (note Beddington is a Professor of Population Biology and his tenure as Alarmist In Chief in Britain has been dominated by “green” issues) widening the CAGW (Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming) myth to include issues such as scientists deciding how to use your free hold property and when to take it from you. Make no mistake, this is the end of all traditional western rights and the economy as we you know it. Without a guarantee of freehold property rights the economy stops dead and the failed communist or facist system (there is little difference) where a small class of people determine who gets what is instituted always ending with starvation, poverty and ultimately the collapse of the nation. Even China doesn’t practice that the more pure form of this type of government anymore. So long UK, it was nice to have you aboard while it lasted.

The report entertains three scenarios to “stimulate thought”. If it doesn’t stimulate mass rage and the sacking of the leaches that produced such rubbish “it would be a travesty” that it didn’t.

In order to save you the government will, according to these scientists and their lackeys need to move millions of you Brits hundreds of miles north. I wonder how that is going to be achieved? Will you all voluntarily get in your (banned) motor vehicles and drive north with a tent and your plasma TV in the boot or will you be called onto the street by masked black clad troopers, told to bring only what you can carry, and force marched north at the point of an automatic weapon. I don’t know about you but a polite invitation just wouldn’t do it for me. Storm troopers with machine guns probably would, and certainly would if I was part of a disarmed population of sheep such as the once proud warrior race of Britons have become. Oh the shame of being a bleating lamb slaughtered rather than a British lion standing his or her ground in a fire fight.

Beddington says, “Business as usual is not an option over the longer term. The effects of climate change and new pressures on land could escalate, seriously eroding quality of life.” Apparently for the green equals red mob in order to save your quality of life you have to forfeit your property, liberty and life.

In the most extreme scenario, world leaders hold an emergency summit in less than 4 years time in 2014 when it becomes clear that the impacts of climate change are going to be far worse and happen much sooner than previously envisaged. Note of course that the world’s leading climate alarmist, at least until he was stood aside from his post at the Climate Research Unit, Dr Phil Jones, publically stated only a few days ago that there has been no statistically significant warming for the last 15 years. Beddington’s mob however, at taxpayers expense, role play a little scenario taking place in less than 4 years hence where climate change is “far worse” than now. This is laughable science fantasy. All pretence of scientific objectivity has been abandoned by promulgating such nonsense. The solution in their little pantomime? Well it involves confiscation of “vast tracts of land” and the end of the small hold private farmer:

The Telegraph article states,

The Government responds by taking control of vast tracts of land and using it to grow wood and crops for biomass power stations. An agricultural productivity Bill requires farmers to increase yields per hectare but most have to sell up because they lack the resources to comply. “The average farm size in the UK increases from 57 hectares to 500 hectares; farms in the East and South East of England increase to 5,000 hectares.”

In a less alarmist scenario merely removing the rights of private land and house ownership is fantasised:

In another scenario, the Government redefines land as a national resource and the rights of landowners are balanced with “society’s rights to public benefits from the services produced by it”. Home ownership falls as people begin to embrace the idea of “stewardship” of shared natural resources.

So the Government just redefines your property, paid for by a life time of work and sacrifice as a “national resource”. In other words the government thugs kick you into the gutter and take what was once yours, at gun point of course as no one would give up their house voluntarily. However not to worry! There is a solution! You will be embracing “stewardship” (or at least the government will on your behalf) and you can “share” resources. How cool would that be. No longer would you need to work. Want a house? Simple. Just find one you like and “share” it with the incumbent resident. I wonder how living at 10 Downing Street would suit. Need a car? Just take it. I wonder if this sharing would extend to your neighbour’s wife. Now there’s a thought. It’s all so simple I am amazed no one has tried this before. I would be so busy “sharing” resources I doubt I would have time to produce anything by actually working. I am sure the rest of you would keep slaving away however so I can enjoy the fruits of your labour. Or would the government have to force the people to work, once again at gun point? Obviously no one would want to work when any property you acquire is taken from you to be “shared”. The only answer would be forced labour. That would work a treat judging by past world experience.

The fact that anyone of any standing, let alone the UK’s chief scientist, would put his or her name to such a document is telling. Yes it is only three absurd scenarios. But that is the point. The scenarios and suggested outcomes and solutions are absurd and they show no shame in presenting this nonsense to you in a report. If it is a question of millions of people “sharing” the fruits of their labour then you may as well give up now as it will all end in tears; and the death of millions. Of course short of a world wide green marxist takeover this is never going to happen but that doesn’t stop the UK’s chief scientist having his dirty little dreams late at night hoping that it will come to pass so he can step in and mandate the Final Solution for you.

Genius and excellence appears to be finally extinct amongst self labelled "scientists" and instead has been replaced by profligate peddlers of nonsenese fantasy clutching their worthless phd's in soft "science" of marginal or negative utility to civilization.

Stay strong people of the UK. Get these fruitcakes and soft headed saps off the public payroll and the problem is solved. Oh and have a great 2014 – unlike Beddington, I am sure it WILL be business as usual.

UPDATE (28/02/10): John Beddington - Statement of Interest Declaration:

THE government’s chief scientist (John Beddington) and his wife have made £500,000 in the past year in a company overseeing commercial fishing that allegedly threatens one of the world’s most pristine marine environments.

Professor John Beddington and his wife, Caroline, are joint shareholders in Marine Resources Assessment Group (MRAG), a London-based consultancy that manages fisheries and provides specialist advice around the world.

Conservationists claim that a fishery managed by the company in British territorial waters in the Indian Ocean has been catching threatened species including blue sharks and manta rays. It is estimated that between 2003 and 2008 more than 120,000 were caught as “bycatch” from commercial tuna fishing.

It is mind-boggling to me that these people do not have the insight or common sense to understand how absurd this kind of alarmist rubbish appears to the public. Have they no personal or professional integrity to put their names on this nonsense? They must be very insecure to have so little faith in their fellow man, and to promote the idea that Big Brother must rule over every aspect of their lives.One has to wonder if many of the people involved in this scam have felt like losers for most of their lives, and now see a way to be part of something big and important. They have so much of their self-esteem invested in this idea of AGW, that they cannot and will not recognize that it has all been a hoax. For to accept this as true, would mean they would have to acknowledge that once again, they have failed.

Well said. I especially agree with your first sentence - do they not realise how absurd this appears to the public? I can only assume theat they do not realise how absurd it is to the public. It is worrying therefore that people of such limited judgement and/or life experience are charged with overseeing blatant policy documents to "stimulate discussion".

Off-topic, but you know the top "Pearl of Wisdom" in your sidebar, the one you attribute to "Greg Reynolds (Australian observer) "?

That's actually *Glenn* Reynolds (Instapundit) of Knoxville Tennessee you want to attribute that one to, I think.

Not meaning to be critical - just noticed that & thought you might want to know. I do like your blog!

Thanks spot. I have fixed it now. He posted that on an ozzie blog which led to my error. I am glad to have you correct it.
