What will the shameful conmen of climate change think up next? Press reports suggest that some egotistic, swaggering so-called ‘expert’ has come up with the idea of equipping a fleet of specially designed aircraft to spray sulphate particles into the lower stratosphere to cool down our planet and offset the effects of climate change.

Backed, (surprise, surprise!), by multi-billionaire Microsoft founder Bill Gates, the idea is alleged to have the approval of top scientists from Harvard who suggest that jets flying 12 miles high would complete 60,000 missions over 15 years, starting with a fleet of eight planes, moving eventually to 100. This may well sound surreal, but a test has been planned for this year under the acronym SCoPEx: Stratospheric Controlled Perturbation Experiment, (or more likely Silly Conspiratorial Prank Extraordinaire).

Who on earth is going to stop these global warming lunatics?

We may be able to tolerate the pitiful antics of Extinction Rebellion, we may even find them mildly amusing, but now it’s getting serious. This entire climate change wind-up is getting out of hand. The ruse is based on the age-old principle that if you repeat a lie often enough people will begin to believe it.

To get to the bottom of the global warming hoax we should adopt the strategy of ‘following the money’: the code first advocated in the film, All the President's Men, which suggests that corruption is brought to light by examining money transfers between parties.

For example, who stands to make most money out of buying a fleet of 100 aircraft and leasing them to the world’s governments for 15 years?

A name springs to mind and I’d wager I’m not far wrong!
