"SCRAP THE CLIMATE CHANGE ACT", SAYS EX MINISTER WHO VOTED FOR IT

This article explains why Owen Paterson has changed his mind, and now realises what a disaster the 2008 Climate Change Act was. What a pity he and his fellow MP's did not give it a bit more thought before voting for it. It is a startling example of what can happen when groupthink takes over from individual rational thought. It is similar to a lynch mob mentality. Owen Paterson should nevertheless be congratulated for having the courage to admit he was wrong. What is now needed is for a lot of his colleagues to do the same.
