It seemed an item (NL) like so many others we’ve seen in the past. Some scientist of questionable credentials making some wild claims about the atrocious effects of global warming in the future.
Ray Hammond, a ‘leading expert in predicting future social and economic trends and Visiting Lecturer at the University of Oxford’s Institute for the Future of Humanity’, claims that due to extreme weather and failed crops, caused by climate change, price will rise such that we’d pay
£6.50 for a loaf of bread, £7 for a box of cornflakes and £18 for a pint of beer – these are the eye watering prices we could face in 2030 unless urgent action is taken to prevent dangerous climate change.
But what is different is the final paragraph in the Dutch item:
There are scientists who claim that the emissions of certain gases by for instance cars and factories contribute to global warming.
If even news sites (moreover: Dutch news sites) are starting to use this kind of sarcasm in their reporting on ‘climate change’ then we can safely conclude that the final paragraph on the climate hype sage itself is about to be written.
