Climate Change? Horseshit!

Controversial Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary has risked the wrath of environmentalists by denying that climate change exists.

And in a foul-mouth rant he said that claims by scientists over global warming were ‘horsesh**’ and were only used to attract more funding for research.

His controversial comments, made in an interview with the Independent, are just the latest in a long line of outrageous public pronouncements which appear designed to attract maximum exposure for Ryanair’s boss.

He said that changes in temperature over time were nothing to do with carbon emissions.

'Well, hang on, we've had an ice age. We've also had a couple of very hot spells during the Middle Ages, so nobody can deny climate change, ’ he told the paper.

‘Do I believe there is global warming? No, I believe it's all a load of bulls***. But it's amazing the way the whole f***ing eco-warriors and the media have changed.

‘It used to be global warming, but now, when global temperatures haven't risen in the past 12 years, they say 'climate change'."

He claimed that there was ‘absolutely no link’ between man-made carbon emissions and climate change.

He also went on to describe the United Nations as ‘one of the world's most useless organisations’ and the IPCC, which wrote a report on climate change, as ‘utter tosh’
