Guest Post by Ryanair's O'Leary: I believe it's all a load of bullshit

Today, I can a offer a post (copied from an article in the Independent) by another famous guest blogger: Michael O'Leary who is CEO if Ryanair, the highly successful European lowbudget airline. As CEO of an airline, O'Leary has to be an expert in weather and climate. He cannot afford to make any mistakes. Imagine that he sent his aircrafts into a thunderstorm and they crashed and all passengers died. That would have devastating consequences: the share prices of Ryanair would plummet on the stock market. So this is a man whom we surely can trust when it comes to the climate.

I believe it's all a load of bullshit
Nobody can argue that there isn't climate change. The climate's been changing since time immemorial.
Do I believe there is global warming? No, I believe it's all a load of bullshit. But it's amazing the way the whole f***ing eco-warriors and the media have changed. It used to be global warming, but now, when global temperatures haven't risen in the past 12 years, they say 'climate change'.
Well, hang on, we've had an ice age. We've also had a couple of very hot spells during the Middle Ages, so nobody can deny climate change. But there's absolutely no link between man-made carbon, which contributes less than 2pc of total carbon emissions [and climate change].
Scientists argue there is global warming because they wouldn't get half of the funding they get now if it turns out to be completely bogus.
The scientific community has nearly always been wrong in history anyway. In the Middle Ages, they were going to excommunicate Galileo because the entire scientific community said the Earth was flat... I mean, it is absolutely bizarre that the people who can't tell us what the f***ing weather is next Tuesday can predict with absolute precision what the f***ing global temperatures will be in 100 years' time. It's horseshit.
The IPCC is a load of utter tosh

Licet volare si in tergo aquilae volat.


  1. Mr. O'Leery is planning to have standing passengers on the wings of his jets. Plainly he's not anticipating any catastrophic weather, unlike the scaredy-cat IPPC.

    Some might say he's not a scientist, but at least he's putting his money and his passengers where his mouth is.

    Excellent awareness to cross-reference this one under both bullshit and horseshit Baron. Lesser bloggers would not likely have caught that, and readership would suffer.

  3. Friends of Gin & Tonic will be adopting Ryanair as our preferred air transport provider. We understand that Michael's "scientists are nearly always wrong" conclusion is to be reflected in a new 'lean' aircraft maintenance programme and the resulting savings will be passed on to customer.

  4. Mr. O'leary knows what he's talking about because earlier this year he had to stop flying as some "sceintists" and there "models" predicted volcanic "ash" while everybody could see there was nothing in the sky. It must have cost him millions, but it was an important lesson for all of us: if you can't see it, it's not there, no matter what those "sceintists" are saying. Now, who has ever seen "global warming"?

  5. "The sceintific community has nearly always been wrong in history anyway. In the Middle Ages, they were going to excommunicate Galileo because the entire sceintific community said the Earth was flat..."

    Why do we even need sceince? What good has it done us anyway? Its just a big gay liberal plot to make us all into lesbian brothers and take away our hard earned cash.
