Amongst a planet shouting for somebody to listen, amongst a reality of change to our climate and so our lives, amongst this all is the convoluted spiral of climate change denial. A ploy abused to maintain a cartel, a status quo, a simplicity of greed and monopoly. A ploy that was developed, created to waver the mind from the reality in front of the nose and done so for the barons that brought us acid Rain, DDT, Passive Smoking Damage and the depletion of the Ozone Layer above our heads. A ploy with a simple premise..., to cast doubt. To muddy the argument so as to gain space to continue onward with the wealth trawling so damaging to a beleaguered planet.

This piece cites a speech made by Robert Hugh Turton, Minister of the British Parliament from 1929 - 1974 and Minister of Health from 1955 - 1957.

On the 7th May 1956, R.H. Turton made a speech to the House of Commons denying the link between cigarette smoke and cancer. In modern context, such a speech is absurd and this piece seeks to draw a parallel between such denial in 1956 and the denial today of climate change on our planet. This piece seeks to highlight the denial from 1956, so as to showcase the absurdity of the climate change denial of today.

The piece also marks the origin of climate change denial strategy and its use before to cast doubt upon acid rain, the effects of DDT, the effects of passive smoking and the depletion of the ozone layer amongst other instances.

As a skipping stone reaches clear across a pond, jumping from place and leaving behind a message that it was there, so too has denial strategy. And in a world where pages are now turned to storytelling of scars, such relevance becomes more startling, more obvious, more unforgivable.

Our world, not theirs.

Time to save it.
