The Australian Greens Get Burned

In response to the terrible bush fires in New South Wales, fires that are still not under control, the Deputy Leader of The Australian Greens Party tweeted that this is what we have to look forward to if Prime Minister Tony Abbott attempts to repeal the Carbon Tax here in Australia…..TonyfromOz.

Australian cartoonist Mark Knight never followed the herd, but Professor Sinclair Davidson is broadly correct:


Mark Knight’s picture is magnificent. What I find most interesting, however, is the notion that mocking a Green (or anyone actually) warming about the hell-fire and damnation of climate change has become acceptable. Only a few years ago the entire progressive establishment (including elements within the Liberal Party) would have been out there drawing the links between bushfires and climate change. Now with only Bandt have stuck his head out, we see cartoonists tearing him a new one.


Australian Climate Madness on Greens MP Adam Bandt, who claims Tony Abbott’s global warming policies will create more bushfires:

Australia’s emissions are 1.5% of the global total. If we reduced that to zero overnight, it would make no difference at all to the climate. As it is, we are only planning to reduce by 5% by 2020, or in other words, 0.075% of global emissions, when the major emitters are doing close to nothing by comparison.

And Bandt thinks that will make a difference to bush fire frequency or intensity?

Idiotic statements like this will ensure the Greens are consigned to the sewer of Australian political history…


Wendy Harmer worries where she should live in a warming world. Tim Blair is rounding up some suggestions.


Dear ABC. About your “science” presenter, warming alarmist Dr Karl. Are you really so sure of his judgment?
