The Warming deniers like News Corpse tell us there is nothing to see but the natural evolution and the coming of the New Normal. There's nothing extreme here except the radical rise in your insurance premiums. There is absolutely no need for any radical or extreme change is the message except ridding ourselves of the ABC and allowing Murdochians to do their job (ODT)
The New Normal the wealth gap has become a wealth abyss and a cry for Welfare will follow (ODT
Beware of Greeks bearing gifts it's a very old saying as is the one about Beware of the Indian Giver. This is no Mea Culpa by Andrew Bolt but it is an example of Fake News.
Like today's Tobacco Lobbyists are prepared to admit smoking "probably" has some effect on lung cancer. "Let us sponsor the scientific research" Bolt now admits he secretly has always believed Climate Change and our emissions do "probably" have some effect on the planet warming. But, like Jim Molan Twiggy Forrest and Bjorn Blomberg say "let's not get ahead of ourselves" and declare them the "cause". "The science isn't certain let us sponsor it and appropriate the message"
We need cost-effective adaption of our bank balances and the knowledge to suit rather than any radical change to determine policy. Yes, some people will be hurt but not all and that's the definition of the "Common Good".. it's limited.
The uncertainty of science shouldn't persuade us of the actions needed cost-benefit is a better yardstick and decisions from the top down shouldn't be influenced by today's populism driven by kids in the street. Maturer brains are needed here.
This my friends is the News Corpse Flip. They are losing, no haemorrhaging money and are "bearing gifts". Bolt also promised Abbott would change time and time again yet still thinks he's the best leader in a decade.
Will the REAL Andrew Bolt please STAND UP!! or better SHUT UP. The fact is there is a correlation between increased rate of emissions and the rate of increasing planet temperature. Bolt admits now human activity might just be the cause for these "not so catastrophic changes" The UK, Germany and most other world nations are seeing the need for not just reduced emissions but a carbon-neutral future with actions beginning now. If the market refuses to invest in new coal-fired power why should the government override what the voters want? It certainly failed Abbott
CLIMATE CAPERS: HOW PAUL BARRY SMEARED SKY
“There will be no relief for drought-ravaged regions over the summer, with Bureau of Meteorology officials telling a meeting of state and federal ministers there would be no significant rain until at least April.”
No rain to put out the fires!
