Politicians must be so brainwashed and confused about climate science if they really think carbon dioxide, which is essential to plants and vegetation, is polluting something or other. Result: they talk nonsense in public all the time about ‘carbon’.

GEORGE Eustice sparked a Cabinet war today by threatening to slap a carbon tax on foreign meat, says The Sun / GWPF.
The Environment Secretary’s move could mean a levy being put on burgers from polluting (sic) mega-farms in Australia.
Mr Eustice has been locked in a bitter battle with International Trade Secretary Liz Truss over the phasing out of meat tariffs on imports from Oz in the looming major trade deal.
But he said the meat tax could help protect British farmers from cheap imports. [Talkshop comment: nothing to do with his phony pollution claims then.]
His comments sparked fears he is plotting to sneak tariffs in by the back door and caused a backlash from some of his colleagues.
One government source warned it will hit consumers while doing absolutely nothing to protect the planet.
Mr Eustice told the BBCRadio 4 Today Programme that Britain is among “a lot of” countries looking at measuring the “consumption” of carbon emissions rather than just how much a country produces.
He added: “So you measure the carbon of the food and other goods that you import — not just what your emissions are.
“Then, some kind of carbon border adjustment tax, to recognise those countries that are falling behind on environmental standards, is the sort of thing which becomes possible.”
