Businesses to take climate change action

OVER 100 of Scotland's top business leaders were meeting in Edinburgh today to pledge action on climate change.

The Prince of Wales' Business Summit on Climate change marks the beginning of a business-led movement for increased action on the threat of carbon emissions to the planet.

Prince Charles was due to address the audience at The Hub via video-link from Wales where a simultaneous event was taking place.

John Swinney, cabinet secretary for finance and sustainable growth, was also due to speak at the summit.

Companies will be asked to make firm commitments to reduce their carbon emissions.

The event, which has been organised by Scottish Business in the Community in conjunction with the Carbon Trust, brought together senior industry figures across a range of sectors and regions.

The gathering follows on from the inaugural event in England in May and will take the number of companies making a commitment to tackling climate change in the UK to over 1500.

Samantha Barber, chief executive of Scottish Business in the Community, said: "Scottish businesses have been at the forefront of efforts to tackle climate change for some time now.

"The summit will provide a focus for collective business action on climate change - harnessing the power of business to change their operating practices."

It's not about CO2 it's about ozone depletion, the evidence for CO2 fell away yet the evidence for climate change grew? We have been accusing greenhouse gasses for so long we didn't know what else there could be, so we kept accusing greenhouse gases like CO2. In the late 1940's the temperature fell for 5 years while both CO2 and solar variance were rising thus ruling them out plain and simple. Yet what did happen was the largest shift in man made radio frequency propagation through the atmosphere. The IPCC has overlooked the fact that our global temperature has been following the rise in broadcast technology for 100 years. It was discovered 30 years ago that radiowaves from a scientific broadcast transmitter could stimulate a known ozone depletion mechanism called electron precipitation. The US knows this and that's why they won't join CO2 restrictions. Don't buy into CO2 until we run tests on electron precipitation. CFC levels have dropped since 2000, but largest ozone hole on record was October 2006! There are two things we put into the atmosphere air and radio pollution, you have to recognize broadcast and it's effects on the environment. Not to do so is blind!!
