Climate Minister buys a castle with 16 bathrooms… and a massive carbon footprint

Daily Mail, 18 November 2011

He is the climate change  minister who pledged to ‘lead by  example’ in the fight against global warming.

But Charles Hendry is facing accusations of hypocrisy after buying himself a 20-bedroom castle – with a potentially massive carbon footprint – as a second home.

Blair Castle in Ayrshire, which went on the market for £2.5million, has three storeys, 16 bathrooms and a heated outdoor swimming pool set in 260 acres of beautiful countryside.

It is likely to rack up colossal energy bills during the cold Scottish winter if Mr Hendry plans to heat all 14 bedrooms, two kitchens and four reception rooms in the main castle.

AGW is based on fear in world leaders who:

a) Were frightened by the destructive force of nuclear energy in the explosion that vaporized Hiroshima on July 6, 1945;

b) Decided to end the nuclear and space races in 1971 and unite nations against Global Climate Change [1];

c.) Failed to recognize the creative force of nuclear energy in the explosion that generated our elements and gave birth to the Solar System five billion (5 Gyr) ago [2]; and

d.) Will not admit powerlessness over the forces [3] that power the Sun and sustain life on planet Earth.

Thanksgiving will be meaningless for those living in fear.

Of course he is able to easily afford the huge heating bill so he doesn’t need to worry. It’s a shame politicians don’t lead by example more often.
