I just received a mail from someone called Caroline Lucas. She said:
Today is the final day of Left Foot Forward’s year end fundraising appeal. And a match funder will double your money – if you give right now. We know that in the run up to the General Election, the corporate media will be launching the best spin money can buy. At the same time they will block those they don’t like from getting any coverage. The only thing that can change this is supporting strong independent media like Left Foot Forward.
Left Foot Forward’s mission is to inform and to combat right-wing misinformation. They bring us the best progressive analysis and combat one-sided rhetoric. Left Foot Forward are committed to giving progressives the fair hearing we deserve. In the coming months, we need them to provide honest coverage and debunk the myths put forward by corporate media. For this, it is crucial that they remain independent. If you’ve been standing by and waiting for the right time to donate, this is it. The time is now. Chip in £3, or whatever you can afford. Please give now and get your donation matched. Your support is hugely appreciated.

I replied as follows:
Sorry, but I won’t be giving any money to Left Foot Forward. I subscribed under the impression that it was a leftwing organisation, and I see that it supports the insane policies of climate catastrophism promoted by Greenpeace, the WWF and other multi-billion dollar NGOs supported by the foundations of American billionaires.
From the website of your own party I take the following:
there has been an explosion in political activism.
Oh no there hasn’t. There are less protesters on the street than at any time since the Napoleonic wars.
climate change is bringing unpredictable and threatening weather patterns.
Oh no it isn’t. Global temperatures haven’t risen significantly for 18 years. Ask the IPCC.
A vote for the Green Party is a vote for The Common Good.
Oh no it’s not. It’s a vote for windmills, which only work when the wind is blowing, and solar panels, which only work in the daytime, on sunny days.
The recent floods brought home the human cost of man-made climate change.
No they didn’t. They brought home the incompetence of the Environment Agency. The scientific theory of man-made global warming predicts that rises in temperature cause by anthropogenic greenhouse gases may provoke catastrophic events like floods. Since there has been no warming for the past 18 years or so, it is not possible that the Somerset floods are due to man-made climate change. Please correct your party’s website accordingly.
