The myth of green Australia : Comments

By John Muscat, published 10/5/2013

But maybe Gore's enthusiasm was a bit misplaced. In September, less than two years later, Australians seem likely, according to the polls, to hand the Gillard Labor government a stinging landslide defeat.

'Al Gore was mistaken. He didn't hear "the voice of the people of Australia" on 8th November 2011; but if he's listening he'll hear it "loud and clear" on 14th September 2013.'

luv it John. Democracy having its say and the slimy Greens/Independants and Labour reaping what they have sown. The man made gw industry has been exposed however the likes of Gore and some prominent Australians have lined their pockets with their deceitful evangelism among the gullible. Pity their pride blinds them to the fact that Queensland and NSW will get rain again and it been one big useless and deceitful tax.

Oh dear, runner,

Haven't you heard that Mr Abbott has come over to the dark side.

http://au.news.yahoo.com/nsw/latest/a/-/article/16795581/abbott-to-win-over-g4-on-climate-action/

"Opposition leader Tony Abbott has plans to play a lead role in convincing China and the United States to sign up for a global climate change deal if he wins government.

Opposition climate change spokesman Greg Hunt said under a coalition government Australia would still be part of a UN climate change process but would pursue action with key members of Group of 20 nations."

Even the so-called "skeptics" acknowledge that good old Tony has turned.

You must be pleased Poirot, that the AGW stupidity is contagious and has apparently infected ABBOTTABBOTTABBOTT.

Alternatively AAA could just have learnt something from the Gillard duplicitous manual and be merely saying he believes to placate the Nancy's in his own party like Greg and Malcolm and to keep the soon to be gutted abc on side.

I think Abbott is much smarter the some might give him credit for. If I were writing his green policy I would grab as many green votes as possible. I would offer those still tentatively clinging to CAGW but who do not feel comfortable with radical green policies, something to cling to. That way they get to have a bob each way.

In the meantime the great green revolution crumbles at an accelerated pace, nicely timed to let Abbott off the hook by the time he gets into office.

For this collapse we are eternally grateful to Al Gores disciples for stuffing up an otherwise attractive new religion of political conservation.

As the collapse advances the disciples have no choice but to escalate their exaggerated projections, increase the volume and the frequency. This is delectable irony as this is what brought about the collapse in the first place.

Hands up all those who think Abbott will spend anything on green policy that he hasnít already taken away from green policy several fold?

The warmers bought the CAGW religion so Abbott is absolutely sure they wonít spot this one coming. In fact my bet is that we will know the warmers have bought it when we hear them spruiking Abbotts message to them.

I just love it when a plan comes together.

The article asserts Australia is a minor direct contributor to world emissions therefore shouldn't act alone. It follows that people shouldn't vote for a change of government Sept 14 since individual votes are insignificant.

There are a few things happening that may raise doubts before then. One is possibly the worse wheat crop in years, another is poor hydro that means our renewables figures won't be as good as last year. Another is the possibility that not just the summer and autumn is unusually warm but winter and spring as well. Yet another is Greg Hunt continuing to fluff the arithmetic on Direct Action.
