UK Met Office Downgrades Apocalyptic Flood Warnings as British Taxpayers Presented with £150 Billion “Climate Change” Bill

Met Office Downgrades Apocalyptic Flood Warnings as British Taxpayers Presented with £150 Billion “Climate Change” Bill

The Met Office has dramatically downgraded its apocalyptic sea level flood warnings of just a few years ago as the government-appointed Committee on Climate Change has estimated that fighting “global warming” will cost the UK taxpayer £150 billion.
The Met Office, which is an official government body, had earlier endorsed the prediction made by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) which, in a 2007 report, said that sea levels would rise six feet within the next century and flood out many cities.
However, a new report by the Met Office said this was no longer likely and instead halved its predicted "worst case scenario."
In addition, the IPCC’s prediction that the Arctic conveyor belt (which moves warm and cold water around the world’s oceans) is slowing has also been dismissed by the Met Office, with a spokesman being quoted as saying that this was “not likely to happen this century.”
Meanwhile, the Committee on Climate Change (CCC), established under the Climate Change Act (2008), which advises the Government on “setting and meeting carbon budgets and on preparing for the impacts of climate change,” has presented a preliminary cost estimate of £150 billion which British taxpayers will have to pay to combat “climate change.”
To put this into perspective, the budget cuts announced by the ConDem regime this year amount to some £83 billion.
In addition to tax increases, the huge figure will send already expensive energy bills soaring even further.
The Climate Change Committee has said that the money will be needed to “deliver green transport, power and energy efficiency” over the next 20 years.
In addition, the CCC has said that Britain must cut its carbon emissions 60 percent from 1990 levels by 2030 as a stepping stone to an 80 percent cut by 2050.
In reality this means further de-industrialising Britain, and the removal of even more industry to China and the Far East.
The CCC’s budgetary plans also do not include British contributions towards “climate change funds” currently being set up to allegedly help the Third World.
The upcoming “climate change” talks in Cancun, Mexico, for example, aim to create a £60 billion fund to help “poor countries cope with climate change and deforestation.”
Of course, the major source of deforestation and aridification in the Third World is the fact that there is insufficient social responsibility in those societies to properly plan ahead and take care of their environments.
