Government axes climate department


Incoming Prime Minister Theresa May has driven a stake through the heart of her predecessor David Cameron’s fluffy, faux-Conservative project by scrapping the Department of Energy And Climate Change (DECC).

Established in 2008, DECC was a hangover from the Gordon Brown era of woeful misgovernance. Its first Secretary of State was future failed Labour leader candidate Ed Miliband whose only significant political achievement also happened to be one of the most expensive and pointless in British parliamentary history: the drafting of the truly disastrous Climate Change Act.

Small step in the right direction


Even if you believe in man-made climate change this should be a welcome change. Government bureaucracies exist to grow. The way a “Department of Climate Change” will grow is by being a alarmist as possible which is bad for science.


There are two Theresa Mays … with and without an “h”.

Just be careful.
