Bringing the Canterbury Tales up to date, with a touch of humour and a smidgeon of Chaucer, Dr Tim Ball compares carbon credits to church indulgences. Funny up-take on a not so funny subject. Here is the heart of CAGW – in the raw. Greed is the root of all evils (from a commenter) and it was indulgences that ultimately led to the Reformation (another commenter). Funny coincidence but over here in the UK we have a well known member of the Church Synod feeding at the trough of renewable subsidies (among others of course but they are atheists or agnostic by creed). No female bishops, eh, but windmills – lots of them. An absence of prophets – but lots of profits.
