Out of Africa

My father fought at El Alamein, which was the first decisive victory for the allies in the Second World War.  Churchill said:

“Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end, but it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”

I wonder if the recent Durban event will eventually be seen as the El Alamein of the war against global warmists.  It has been a complete flop for those who would have the warmist agenda adopted on a world-wide basis.  Apart from dear old Australia (which is running about 15 years behind everyone else) the whole world seems to be quietly dropping the idea that we are about to both boil and drown.

Talking of World Wars, it is not novel to note that Germany now appears to achieving the domination of Europe that it failed to achieve in either WW1 or WW2. Personally speaking, monetary bullying seems to be infinitely preferable to the use of high explosives. And the fact that Europe is moaning so loudly about the British remaining apart from the process suggests that all is, on the whole, starting to go rather better these days.

    Totally disagree (and love a debate). In the next few decades when we work out how to become half man/half machine and live for 100s of years replacing our worn out body parts, we’ll be glad there were forward thinking people who worried about having a planet to inhabit. Amazon will probably be gone, barrier reef is just about past a tipping point, fish will be depleted to oblivion, oil will run out – then what will you do. Perhaps we humans might run on hydrogen by then, and not need to eat.

  2. Not sure what you are disagreeing with here? My tentative suggestion that Durban might prove to be a turning point in the political struggle, or the underlying view that Gore has been wrong about pretty much everything he has persuaded the world of?
    After all, you might think that Hitler was an absolutely splendid fellow who deserved to succeed, but still agree that El Alamein was where it all started to go wrong for him
