Astonishing quote from "The Age"
Even The Age pokes fun at the poll, wondering why we should pay attention to the opinion of 12 year olds (brainwashed at school by endless showings of An Inconvenient Truth in science class, rather than in politics class). But it also includes an almost unbelievable quote, revealing a great deal about The Age's view on the campaign to save the planet from climate change:
There is not, now, much value in arguing about the science of climate change. Even if it's wrong, enough people now believe it that it may as well be right.
In other words, give up trying to argue that the science is wrong. We've successfully pulled the wool over the public's eyes now, mostly thanks to the misrepresentations in the media, and primarily thanks to the alarmist Fairfax (which includes The Age itself and The Sydney Morning Herald), and so who cares if it complete BS? We will achieve our political goals whatever happens now.
Well, I have news for you, Michael Coulter and your colleagues in Fairfax. Whether you like it or not, we will continue to argue that the alarmist science is wrong until there isn't a breath left in our sceptical bodies. And nothing The Age or The Sydney Morning Herald prints will stop that.
