In a recent Twitter post, Jeremy Clarkson has revealed that one of his Diddly Squat Farm pigs has died in the heat of the heatwave that swept the country at the beginning of the week. This came moments after he’d ridiculed the media for talking about the “extreme heat” and expressing its potential dangers.
Jeremy Clarkson has admitted that he now believes in global warming after filming an episode of The Grand Tour alongside James May and Richard Hammond:
“The irony is not lost on me.
“A man who hosted a car programme for 30 years, limited to seven miles per hour by global warming.
“It’s the first time that we’ve ever admitted to there being global warming.”
“There was no water in the Tonle Sap lake. I mean, it was knee-deep. And you could paddle in it.
“So we had two days of absolute frustration — being towed and grounding.It was alarming, genuinely alarming.”
Despite this, he still believes that global warming is not man-made.
At the beginning of the week, he angered Twitter users as he made light of the heatwave while on holiday in the South of France.
“It’s very hot in the south of France but so far as I know, there’s no DefCon 8 level 3 killer death heatwave warning in place.” he wrote, urging Twitter users to respond with anger.
Unfortunately, while he was on holiday, a pig on his farm died from the heat as other farmers were urged to lather their pigs in sun cream and give them plenty of water.
“Thankfully, the global warming is now over but tragically, its brief visit took the life of my big pig. RIP pig,” he posted to Twitter.
