Bob Brown shamelessly uses bushfires to push "climate change" agenda

No gutter is too low for Bob Brown. Whilst families are grieving for their loved ones who have perished in bush fires in Victoria, the callous Greens senator is using the tragedy to score cheap political points.
Senator Brown said the "dreadful inferno" was a terrible reminder of what climate change could mean for Australians.

"Global warming is predicted to make this sort of event happen 25 per cent, 50 per cent more," he told Sky News.

"It's a sobering reminder of the need for this nation and the whole world to act and put at a priority our need to tackle climate change."

  • How disgusting but typical from this watermelon politician.

    He has absolutely no idea at all.

  • He is truly vile, digusting and beyond contempt. How dare he use these tragic events to push his agenda. He is a pathetic zealot.

  • Bob Brown's comments are perfectly correct, and perfectly timely.

    These horrific fires are more likely to occur given climate change. We must remember this, and we must keep reminding ourselves of this all the time.

    How long after the tragedy is Brown permitted to make his political comments? Never?

    So we just blithely continue on in the face of this disastrous climate change. Now, THAT's climate change madness.

  • There is absolutely no evidence to link these bushfires to "climate change". It was a simple combination of a natural drought (and we've had worse) and a particular synoptic pattern of weather (again, completely unremarkable). Tragic though they are, there have been worse fires, in terms of extent, in unpopulated areas. In any event, there are stories emerging that a number of fires were started deliberately - how is that caused by climate change?

    And as for an appropriate time to comment, I respectfully suggest that the day of the tragedy, when charred bodies were still being pulled out of buildings, was not it.

    There is also no evidence of "disastrous" climate change, unless you only believe the IPCC and James Hansen... Temperatures are fallling globally and have since 2001. Climate has always changed and always will, and humans have got very little to do with it.

  • Reading the ABC news article you link to shows that Brown does NOT blame climate change for the fires. He just says they'll be more frequent as a result of climate change.

    Climate change may be one of many contributors to these fires (or the ferocity thereof), but it's not the only cause, if it is at all. We can't be certain.

    But Brown is correct.

  • The semantic difference is noted, but irrelevant. If Bob Brown gets up on TV and talks about climate change in front of a raging bushfire, the public will make the connection.

    However it is phrased, he has hijacked the tragic events in Victoria in a desperate attempt to get publicity for the Greens' political agenda, which demonstrates a callous disregard for the victims.
