Terry McCrann takes on a victim of the religious fervour of a Fairfax warmist:

Bayswater Power Plant

Bayswater Power Plant

The combination of wild-eyed religious belief and both complete denial of fact and total disconnect from reality that is so characteristic of climate change true believers was perfectly displayed by The Age’s theology — correction, supposed economics — editor Peter Martin on Sunday.

He started off by claiming “Abbott” — presumably, the Prime Minister — “doesn’t like power stations”.

He offered no support for the extraordinary and I’d suggest utterly false claim; and followed it with the question: “Who does?”

Well Peter, I — and I suggest the PM — for one do. I like flicking a switch and getting light and heat and power all the other things they provide cleanly, efficiently and safely.

You presumably don’t understand how life was “nasty, brutish and short” before them — and still is for the tens of millions of people today who don’t have access to the electricity they can provide.
