Liberal MP Craig Kelly notes yet another dud prediction from warming alarmist Tim Flannery, this one made in 2006:

NEWS WIRED : Do you believe that we’re coming into the peak production of oil — and do you think the inevitable fuel cutbacks that ensue might work to the benefit of fighting climate change?

FLANNERY : “All the projections suggests that we’re hitting it. Again, it just gives the added urgency of dealing with the issue today…Just play a little thought game: We’re 10 years out now; it’s 2016. Sea levels have started to rise quickly… Imagine oil prices TWICE OR THREE TIMES what they are today.”



Kelly discusses Flannery’s record of dud predictions with Alan Jones and explains why it matters.

Why does the ABC consistently fail to grill him on this appalling record?
