Daily Telegraph Opinion Editor James Morrow says the petition calling for the declaration of a climate emergency is signed by ‘climate cultists’ trying to enforce ‘their own socialist ideals’. 

Mr Morrow’s comments come after it was revealed that the 11,000 signatures touted in the media as proof there is a climate emergency may have been hijacked by a few fake signatories - like Mickey Mouse from the Mickey Mouse School of the Blind and Zoology professor Araminta Aardvark from the University of Neasden.

“It is just hilarious that all of these journalists are so eager to say ‘11,000 scientists have all said it's a climate emergency’ and they’ve just run with it and no one has thought to run a ruler down, say, 20 of them to see what sort of people we are talking about here,” Mr Morrow said.

Mr Morrow stated that the petition also called for the destruction of capitalism.

“So many people are willing to be the useful idiots for these climate cultists who want to use the environment as a way to enforce their own socialist ideals which have failed time and time again for a hundred years.”
