I heard her this morning, prattling on about the effects we are seeing now of catastrophic climate change, drought, lack of rain, the great barrier reef disappearing and what not. You'd think that if they really believed that mother earth was so displeased and we MUST act now before it's too late, they'd force us to cut emissions by a bit more than a lousy 5%. The green groups have been braying angrily all day at them. Incidentally she didn't say if the rains would return, the drought would disappear and the starfish up on the gold coast would sing merry songs again if we cut our wretched emissions.LiveNews - Penny Wong [Minister for death-to-carbon & war-on-climate-change in Australia] has defended the federal government's modest greenhouse gas reduction targets, saying it will take time to tackle climate change. The climate change minister, who made way for Prime Minister Kevin Rudd to announce the targets on Monday, said the economy would become greener over time. ......"People seem to be thinking that you can simply achieve a target by setting it. You have to have a plan to get there," Senator Wong said. ......Senator Wong said that "very close discussions" with businesses and peak bodies had convinced the government to beef up its financial assistance to businesses in the final version of the emissions trading scheme, released on Monday.
The end is nigh, repent you fools! Can you not feel the fire, can you not see the oceans rising angrily, the tsunami is building you fools, repent, repent, or else! You should check out the pictures at the sites, grim faces folks, dire news, the end in nigh!LiveNews - Nobel prize-winning physicist Steven Chu, named on Monday as the next US energy secretary, will be Barack Obama's dedicated champion in what has been described as the life-or-death fight against global warming. A renowned expert in the field, Chu has increasingly sounded the alarm on the dire need to address climate change before it is too late. The planet is threatened with "sudden, unpredictable, and irreversible disaster," the 60-year-old Chinese-American scientist warned in an internet interview last month. ......Chu has warned cities such as New York, London, Tokyo, Bombay or Buenos Aires need to think about erecting huge walls to protect their populations from the rising oceans, as ice caps melt.
Huge walls to keep out the oceans ey, I've never heard of this fellow Chu and he doesn't say, but does anyone know when exactly these angry oceans will rise up and swallow whole countries and cities? After all he seems so sure of himself and since we're all going to be forced to pay for all this, shouldn't he be able to tell us with some certainty, when exactly we'll all be sleeping with the fishes. Whilst you all are saying your goodbyes to your loved ones and all that before we're swept away, not sure which will come first, by the angry oceans and raging fires, ponder this.
A sampling of the scientists refusing to bend to the alarmists' angry braying is at WorldNetDaily.WorldNetDaily - A United Nations climate change conference in Poland is about to get a surprise from 650 leading scientists who scoff at doomsday reports of man-made global warming – labeling them variously a lie, a hoax and part of a new religion. Later today, their voices will be heard in a U.S. Senate minority report quoting the scientists, many of whom are current and former members of the U.N.'s own Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. About 250 of the scientists quoted in the report have joined the dissenting scientists in the last year alone. In fact, the total number of scientists represented in the report is 12 times the number of U.N. scientists who authored the official IPCC 2007 report. Hat Tip Micky's Muses.
