Controversial leaders Theresa May, Donald Trump and Jair Bolsonaro have heralded a new spring of right-wing environmental consciousness.
And for the first time ever, the environment has been made a true populist, anti-elitist cause! But what could possibly be at stake here?
Well, it all lies in the perennial struggle between the unpatriotic, disloyal elites and the clear-thinking, commonsensical people!
For power, as they say is knowledge…
What’s all this about then?
Extravagant NYC rhetorical foghorn Donald J. Trump says:

As our honourable member Michael Gove says, ‘I think people have had enough of experts.’ Well, I have to say I wholeheartedly endorse the opinion of my colleague here; and I promise that from here on in, the climate debate will no longer be shut down and hindered and sent off course by the constant clamour for elitist ‘experts,’ while the perfectly reasonably, solid, common sense reasoning of the British people is ignored and laughed at!
Lazily self-plagiarising his recent Trump meeting, ‘President’ Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil says:
With our good friend Mr Trump of the America, that menina over there of the Britain, we are standing with God our creator and our gender identity agianst the politically correct science, the attitudes elitist and anti-popular, and we are fighting the fake news! No more will the right to an opinion be denied! Either diversity is intellectual diversity, diversity of opinion, or it is nothing!
It remains to be seen how the world population at large will view this striking new development.
