Idiotic Comments of the day - Emma Tom

The Australian wins ACM Idiotic Comment of the Day two days running. Yesterday it was Leigh Dayton, and today Emma Tom, writing in "The Wry Side", under the headline "Apply anti-sceptic" - v. witty:
The thing that's so irksome about hardline climate change sceptics is that the planet will need to be twitching and coughing up blood before they'll agree to do anything. And while it's always enormously gratifying to be proved right, even the narkiest greenie is unlikely to gain much pleasure from screeching "I told you so" as the last of the polar ice caps fizzes sadly into the sea like a stale Berocca.
Once you look at environmental issues through this lens, setting a 2020 greenhouse emissions target of a paltry 5 to 15 per cent becomes the equivalent of only conducting airport security checks on Mondays and Wednesdays.

And there's a "D" Word alert into the bargain:
Contrary to the smug rhetoric of the deniers, taking out expensive or inconvenient insurance policies against tiny risks is not irrational or even that uncommon.
We take out insurance to protect our cars, our mobile phones and (if we live in the US of A) our celebrity boobs. Let's not leave ourselves hideously underinsured when it comes to our primary residence.

Res ipsa loquitur.
