Apart from the fact that the movement is sponsored by the same corporations that got us into the mess In the first place - not a lot. In stead of tackling the actual problem they demonize the gas that feeds all vegetable life, carbon dioxide and monetize it to feed their insatiable greed.

So you think they are sponsored by the oil companies?

I watched David Attenborough's programme. But what I really want to know, from an unbiased source, is what percentage of global warming is caused by man; compared to natural climate change? Other sources say that we are still coming out of the last ice age.
How much does a natural event like Krakatoa or Mount St.Helens erupting contribute to warming, compared to the puny efforts of industrialisation?

Sussex Jim, Volcanic emissions range from 0.1 to about 0.4 Gigatons (Billion tons) per year while Human activity releases about 35 Gigatons per year. The largest single volcanic event of the 20th century was The Pinatubo eruption in Peru during the 70s, though not as massive as Krakatoa is was larger than Mt St. Helens and released an estimated 20 million tons of CO2.
All figures from the US Geological Survey. Sadly the efforts of industrialisation are far from puny.

It certainly puts the fiasco that is Brexit into perspective. A storm in a teacup.

The Global Warming Policy Forum is the best source of unbiased peer-reviewed scientific study and level-headed fact. Unlike violent unemployable extremists attacking the forces of security in central London this week, the GWPF has properly qualified men behind its comprehensive research. And it is high time that authority everywhere swept away the stench of pointless dissent.

The Global Warming Policy Forum is a wholly own subsidiary of the The Global Warming Policy Foundation and carries out the lobbying work that the Foundation as a charity cannot legally do in its own right, promoting climate change scepticism.
The GWPF are under no circumstances un biased. Many of their members are clear climate change sceptics, not least the chairman Nigel Lawson who is a long time climate change denier.
They have been extremely opaque when it comes to sighting the sources of their income and have denied repeated freedom of information requests to open up about their funding but as their offices are in a room in the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining you can hazard a guess.
You can agree or disagree with their position but to call them unbiased is not correct.

Webbo - no, there isn't anything more important. It's the single biggest threat to Lewes, to Sussex, to England, to the UK and to the world. To future generations, Brexit will be seen as a tragi-comic footnote to the big story of the 21st Century, which is climate (and related environmental issues).

No webbo, they're not sponsored by oil companies per se. The thing is,who sponsors oil companies. Their owners are wealth funds,banks etc. the 1% of the 1%. A good example is the Rockefeller organisation,we all know they are synonymous with big oil,big banking and big everything. So how come they are big environmentalists as well? One of their top men Maurice Strong set up the Rio Earth Summit of, what was it, 1992? What's their game? Control. Didn't J.D Rockefeller say competition is sin? Didn't their think tank the Club of Rome come up with the idea that mankind is the enemy and that democracy is too slow? Only a World Government can save us from ruining the world ( with them of course having a big chunk of it's control !) It's a power grab. Incidentally,they helped finance the Bolshevik Revolution... what ...big capital bankrolling communism? It was all just business to them and very profitable too. Also they helped to finance Nazi Germany. It's all in the public record if you take the time to find it. As far as extinction rebellion are concerned the connections of Dr Gail Bradbrook are very interesting which can be found at News from Nowhere - astroturfing the way to the fourth industrial revolution.

Global warming was quietly brushed under the carpet only to be re-invented as climate change. The sun goes through periods of intense activity which would cause temperatures to rise, as they have done so on the surface of Mars by a proportionate amount. Whilst the planet is becoming increasingly populated and would cause temperatures to rise I would suggest changes witnessed are not solely due to human input.

Oh goody, back to the aerosols, diesel and plastic bottles then.
It really doesn’t matter if the sun adds to the crisis. If we humans can mitigate the impending catastrophe that will devastate the lives of our grandchildren then we need to do all we can.
