The UK Meteorological Office has objective evidence on climate change and the rise in sea level (12cm) during the last 100 years, together with a prediction that it will rise by a further 11 - 16 cm ( two thirds of this is attributed to climate change) by 2030. Thats three to four times as much as in the previous 100 years and only 16 years away.
The loony right in Westminster may be climate change deniers but the Scottish Government is committed to a precautionary approach and has policies that will attempt to deal with climate change. In the government White Paper, "Scotland's Future" there is an acceptance that climate change is happening and that it is driven by CO2 emissions, energy policy after independence will be based on this premise.
You may think that I am saying, "VOTE YES FOR INDEPENDENCE AND SAVE THE PLANET"............
I couldn't possibly comment.
