BBC Asks “Are the politics of climate change going out of fashion?”
14 hours ago 
Essay by Eric Worrall

Labour opposition leader Keir Starmer’s election campaign decision to cancel a pledge to spend £28 billion per year on green projects has rocked the British political landscape.

Kuenssberg: Are the politics of climate change going out of fashion?

By Laura Kuenssberg

Presenter, Sunday with Laura Kuenssberg



Politics has fashions too – what’s in and out. It’s not so long ago that world leaders were jostling to be pictured with celebs like Leonardo diCaprio, Stella McCartney or Emma Watson at the huge COP26 climate conference in Glasgow where Boris Johnson played host.

Then, it was hip to be green – being at COP in 2021 was the political equivalent of the fashion week front row. But with Labour shrinking away from its big £28bn commitments this week, and the Conservatives shifting tack and rumoured to be dropping the so-called “boiler tax”, there’s no doubt trends have changed.

What’s different?

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak took the first steps back in September. He didn’t junk the government’s green commitments but slowed the pace of existing plans.

Out of Fashion?  Is that the woke terminology now of "scam has been exposed"?

“As much as it may upset many people, my message is the planet is NOT in peril. … atmospheric CO2 and methane have negligible effect on the climate. The policies government have been implementing are total unnecessary and should be eliminated.  ...

Yes, Global Climate Change policies increase the cost of living and threaten to cause global famine.
