UKIP Agriculture Spokesman Stuart Agnew made this statement/asked this question in the European Parliament yesterday, of Socialist Group leader Gianni Pitella
Mr Pitella are you aware that if you succeed in decarbonising europe our crops will have no natural gas to grow from. We have to have carbon dioxide. This is madness, absolute madness what you are suggesting and our industry, our Agricultural industry is going to suffer heavily if we attempt to bury carbon dioxide in the ground. It is absolutely mad.
Amazingly some people clapped. And even more amazingly UKIP have proudly put the video of this on their website. (UPDATE: sadly UKIP removed the video from their website – but fortunately it’s still available here)
There is a strong contingent of the tin-foil hat brigade within UKIP and it now seems clear that Stuart Agnew is a member, alongside Environment spokesman
Professor Doctor Andrew Charalambous aka Dr Earth, who is equally concerned about contamination of his precious bodily fluids.
Agnew’s revelation follows hot on the heels of a UKIP prospective parliamentarian asking
what happens when the renewable energy runs out?
