When you hear that a government minister is endorsing a proposal all hospitals should in future be built on hills, to stop them being submerged beneath the rising seas brought by global warming, you really have to start worrying. This, of course, is Spelperson, but she doesn't personally advocate digging up hospitals and relocating them, in her recent statement or even in last week's speech. And nor even will you find that in the official government report which has caused some excitement.

Another way of looking at it is that most of the hills are in Whiteland, controlled by white people, while the major urban areas, where the largest hospitals currently are, are in the flat lands, which increasingly are full of immigrants and controlled by coloured people.

Bottom line: the l33ts don't like the idea of being taken into Brownland when they get ill.

It's politically incorrect to say "let's move the hospitals away from Brownland because it's going to be an increasingly unstable political plughole" but if they can pretend to themselves a Great Deluge is coming and they need to save the NHS by putting it on a hill it's a useful excuse ... while they continue to hold their noses above the anti-immigration and racist crowd.

Funny, I live right next to the sea, and our house just survived a magnitude 7.1 Earthquake. (Christchurch NZ), unlike the poor sods nearer to the city centre.

Personally, I am feeling quite safe right now.

What are they expecting? Even if the worst came to pass we'll just have weather a bit like the mediterranean surely. When people have no responsibility they are free to behave irresponsibly. Our politicians are prime examples of that.

Anyway, there is... a... third way. Build hospitals on stilts. Yes it is buying into the climate change disruption nonsense but you'd also get loads of parking spaces!

Perhaps we could set up a bet: "That the UK will not meet its target of 30% energy from renewable sources by 2020 without creating large-scale power cuts."

Good Lord! Such early birds. If there were cut backs on stupidity, there would be no government.
A task for Spelsperson: log all hospitals elevation above current sea level, excluding health spas and convalescent homes by the sea, and list how many existing have been flooded.
What? She's paid by the tax payer! Sack her! . . Immediately.

Incidentally, your interesting screen grab from Booker's blog shows the top half of Lord Tebbit's head as he peers curiously out of the Telegraph's into yours and Booker's on-line space. Do you think he is contemplating joining you? Perhaps that's why they call them peers.

The beautiful dream that was CAGW is over. Britain taking a lead on climate change, millions of green jobs, and all the rest, is colliding with reality; reality will come out unmarked and CAGW will be a write off. Fundamentally, we don't have and can't borrow the money to indulge this nonsense any further.

Don't expect a full and frank admission that it's over along the lines of:

We were wrong.

We in the UK couldn't make a difference in any case, so that much was always total baloney.

Partly, it was a glorious scam, partly, we were suckered, now we have to pick up the pieces, disappoint some of our pals and dismantle the machinery we've built, and we'd rather throw our pals a bone and argue that the machinery is well suited to something else. It leaves us with some problems we'll do our best to pretend aren't there.

Expect:

We weren't wrong, events have overtaken us. We are now adapting to climate change.

Don't worry folks, the higher aspirations of the dream may be a 2nd phase development now, but the core of the dream is intact.


I simply don't believe that Spelman's gone off on a tangent and done this on her own. She may have been chosen because she doesn't see the nonsense in what she's saying and is therefore well suited to deliver the message.

You know how we're supposed to be the rubbish tip of Europe (why is it always the X of Europe? And why is it always us? Why can't we be the X of the Atlantic?) and how we use more landfill than any other country? Turns out it's "environmentally friendly" in some cases. Go figure.

I figured ...

"The biggest problem with this approach may be that it's so low-tech. No green-technology subsidies are required, so there may not be a natural constituency for it ...".
