UK CLIMATE MINISTER IN CAR CRASH INTERVIEW OVER DIET CHANGES TO SAVE THE PLANET

I just could not stop laughing when I read this interview on the BBC website with Claire Perry MP, the UK Climate Change Minister. Poor Claire found herself caught between on the one hand supporting freedom to eat meat and on the other hand supporting what would be very unpopular measures to reduce CO2 emissions. What a dilemma! The arguments she used were priceless - trying to argue that she would not want to be a "nanny", and then said that if we unilaterally gave up meat in the UK it would not make any difference as other nations would not follow our example. 

Someone should have asked her about the Chinese and Indians building all these coal-fired power stations and why we are closing ours down. I wonder if the global warming zealots will dare to ask us all to stop using Christmas lights? I'm sure all those outdoor lights must all add up to quite a few tons of CO2.
