Looks like a ridiculous article. But it's not entirely surprising. With all the 'one-sided' press climate change is getting, it's to be expected that some of the more weak willed media outlets will subject their readers to this 'balanced reporting'

I was in England recently, where climate change appears to have been much higher on the agenda for longer, than it is over here. But I noticed that even there the backlash is starting. Or at least trying to start.

I read a 2 page spread about how much the Labour government's environmental policy was going to cost. And an opinion piece explaining that this was all quite unnecessary. But, despite this, I didn't detect any flagging enthusiasm from the people about the governments policies.

I think that people accept there will be a cost to these policies, and they know that these policies are the right thing to do. If only we had a government (and a media) that had the will to see these changes through, instead of second guessing what is now widely accepted as fact.
