Australian Climate Madness

Senator Steve Fielding asks all the right questions

Namely, all the questions that our so-called "leaders" should be asking - in particular, Rudd, Wong and Combet, all of whom are blinded by the glittering Nobel Prize glow emanating from the IPCC. From the same Age article:
Senator Fielding said he wants the science "cleared up" before he decides how to vote. [That's not possible, but at least he may realise there is sufficient doubt about the causes of climate change that regulating a harmless trace gas and taxing our economy out of existence is madness - Ed] He supports a Coalition push to delay [the] vote until after an international climate summit in Copenhagen in December.

He said he was open-minded on climate science, but "there seemed to be merit" in claims that global warming had stopped and solar activity had a greater influence on temperature.

A majority of climate scientists say the long-term warming trend due to greenhouse emissions is clear: that six of the warmest years since industrialisation were between 1998 and 2006 [Yep, that old chestnut again - we are, sorry, were, in a period of warming after the Little Ice Age so it is natural that later years are warmer [duh], and it was warmer still in the Medieval and Roman warm periods, and "since industrialisation" is a blink of an eye in geological terms - Ed].

"I now need the science to be resolved," Senator Fielding said. "I would be derelict in my duties and I think I'd be letting down the Australian people if I didn't properly research the issues and relied on one side of the debate."

Bravo.

  • THANK HEAVENS FOR SENATOR FIELDING, CLIMATE CHANGE HAS BEEN AROUND AS LONG AS THE PLANET AND THERE IS PLENTY OF PROOF, THE POLLIES ARE SINGING THE PRAISES OF THE "KINGS NEW SUIT OF CLOTHES".
