Nicely said RTT, but there's no point getting angry with the green-left climate nutters because they're not intelligent enough to understand your argument.
It's the way that people automatically go into rabid dog mode if you say something that's even slightly anti-greenwash, it's really quite strange. It never even occurs to some people - even very intelligent and educated people - that possibly their position could be proven to be wrong in the long term. I used to be a firm believer in everything greenwash years ago, I read all the books and bought the tee-shirt. Now I'm just a bit older and more cynical, that's all.
There are limits to how much I believe in the opposing position, obviously. I for one would not allow the completely artificial shortage of gas in Australia to become an excuse to start fracking everywhere; I don't think there's enough evidence on what it does to the water table to allow it.
Interestingly, Malcolm has been in the media today with a speech telling everyone that coal wasn't dead and that it's always possible new coal plants will be built in Australia in the future. I think it's a sign of his desperation that he's changed tack on this; this isn't the real Malcolm Turnbull speaking - this is someone whose days in the big chair are very much numbered and he's lashing out trying to find traction on anything other than his leadership.
I love watching the LNP implode, it's like watching Mexcians froth at the sight of a DL lead Freight Razz Kind Regards
Even the LNP's best friend in the world - the Institute of Public Affairs - is taking the chance to sink the boot into the current Prime Minister. As per an opinion piece in today's Financial Review
by Andrew Clark:Seventy-three years after Menzies founded the Liberal Party on the basis of that Institute of Public Affairs report, the current head of the IPA, John Roskam, says the "issue is what is his [Turnbull's] definition of what the progressive centre means." He answers that Turnbull's interpretation of the term "centre" means "bigger government" and an "excuse for higher taxes and bigger regulations. "The Turnbull government's economic policy stance contrasts with "everything he said he was going to do before becoming Prime Minister. He spoke about the evils of the mining tax. Now he is embracing something worse than that and that is the bank tax."
