    The speeches calling for the UN Security Council to push a reluctant world to implement the hairshirt economic policy of Net-Zero are revealed as a dystopian delusion.

    A new poll shows that many people think the planet is in a far worse state than it really is. The British public has been subject to a consistent diet of climate alarmism for years.
