Update: Some have queried the use of ‘alarmist’ in the headline, this was chosen becuase of the connection to 10:10 ‘No Pressure’ video,(here, here, here, here , and the rest of the civilised world) and 10:10′s message of 300,000 deaths due to climate change, despite no evidence of this.
On the Anniversary of Climategate a CAGW alarmist has entered the Houses of Parliament…….
……. not by the traditional environmental ‘climate change’ activist method, of climbing onto the roof holding ‘Save the Planet’ banners, but invited in and made a peer by Labour Party leader Ed Milliband
“Bryony Worthington, Sandbag’s founder, has been appointed as a Labour peer in the UK Parliament’s House of Lords, recognising over a decade of work for effective action on climate change.
Ed Milliband, who as Minister of State for the Department of Energy and Climate Change in the previous UK government, was responsible for introducing the 2008 Climate Change Act (80% reductions in CO2 by 2050) has brought Bryony into the House of Lords to help push the Climate Change Act that they both were instrumental in creating.
“First on her agenda will be the energy market reform planned by the coalition government, “unfinished business” from the Climate Change Act which she was instrumental in writing, such as setting stronger carbon caps in the UK, and how to boost investment in green projects.”
Bryony has some good ’climate change’ connections, Friends of the Earth, DEFRA, Sandbag, SSE, Bryony is also a board member of the 10:10 Campaign and apparently has had some ‘good ideas’ in the past,
“Whilst at SSE, she was seconded to government to take part in writing the climate change bill, which is now law and binds the UK to cutting its carbon emissions. The idea of national carbon budgets, now in law, was hers”
