All those tiresome greenies and lefties who have been giving our wonderful National-led government a hard time over climate warming should go back to the drawing board.
The Greens are grouching again about climate change and all that carry-on at the same time as scientists are affirming that we are no good at forecasting anything to with the future.

But the forecasters will keep on forecasting and getting it wrong because the incur no penalty for getting it wrong, which happens most of the time.
Well, almost nobody.
They’ve got the right idea in Romania where they have been considering legislation to keep witches from misleading the people.
A month after Romanian authorities began taxing them for their trade, the country’s soothsayers and fortune tellers are cursing a new bill that threatens fines or even prison if their predictions don’t come true.
The witches kicked up a fuss about this, saying they shouldn’t be blamed for the failure of their tools.
