I’ve got no doubt about climate change, admits Jeremy Clarkson

He’s the most notorious of petrolheads, but Jeremy Clarkson has no doubts about climate change after seeing a drying riverbed in South East Asia while filming a TV show

He’s the most notorious of petrolheads, but Jeremy Clarkson has no doubts about climate change after seeing a drying riverbed in South East Asia while filming a TV show.

Writing in The Sunday Times, the former star of BBC show Top Gear described fishermen suffering due to water shortages on a boat tour of Vietnam and Cambodia.

He said: ‘It’s the first time that we’ve ever admitted to there being global warming.’

Mr Clarkson is unlikely to be embraced by the green movement quite yet, however.

He recently described eco-warrior Greta Thurnberg as a ‘spoilt brat’.

Speaking at the United Nations Greta broke down in tears while furiously scolding international delegates for not taking responsibility for fixing the planet’s warming climate.

‘I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to us for hope. How dare you. 

‘You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words,’ the Swedish activist thundered in her speech at the Climate Action Summit 2019 in New York.

Mr Clarkson branded her a ‘spoilt brat’ writing in his column for The Sun: ‘How dare you sail to America on a carbon fibre yacht that you didn’t build which cost £15million, that you didn’t earn, and which has a back-up diesel engine that you didn’t mention.’

‘We gave you mobile phones and laptops and the internet. We created the social media you use every day and we run the banks that pay for it all. 

‘So how dare you stand there and lecture us, you spoilt brat.’

In 2009, environmental campaigners dumped manure on Mr Clarkson’s front lawn in protest against his attitude on global warming.

Activists from environmental group Climate Rush unloaded two bag-loads of horse manure at his home with a banner which read: ‘This is what you’re landing us in’.

The seven female protesters, dressed as suffragettes, made the stop outside Clarkson’s home as part of their month-long horse-and-cart road show around the south west of England to raise awareness of climate issues.
