When your attempt at recreating the Congress of Vienna with a third-rate cast of extras turns into a shambles, when the data with which you have tried to terrify the world is daily exposed as ever more phoney, when the blatant greed and self-interest of the participants has become obvious to all beholders, when those pesky polar bears just keep increasing and multiplying – what do you do?

Hold a big environmental sleepover….

And so it is over. All of the right thinking folks are terribly let down by PMSH – imagining perhaps that he had been elected to hand over a fantastic amount of our wealth to the keptocracies that characterise the developing world; all in an effort to obtain redemption of some sort for our imagined climate debt.  EU Referendum summarises nicely the gnashing of teeth and disappointment of the loony left, but quite rightly notes that it was always all about the money.    The National Post helpfully offers the coles notes version…..

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron'scruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. C.S. Lewis
