James Delingpole promotes Killing the Earth to Save It in Perth
A nice account of James Dellingpole’s book launch in Perth from my good friend Matt Hayden:

Matt offers some interesting observations about the changing demographics of Climate change sceptics but I can’t help wondering what our favourite decaf soy latte drinker would have thought of the whole thing.
Portions of any work that are quoted are reproduced on the basis of the "fair dealing for purpose of criticism or review" section 41 of the Copyright Act 1968.
let's look at the Australian Copyright Council's fact sheet on Fair Use:
The Federal Court has stated that “criticism and review” involves making a judgment of the material concerned, or of the underlying ideas. Criticism and review may be strongly expressed, and may be expressed humorously, and need not be balanced. The defence can apply where the criticism or review takes place in a commercial context, such as in published books or newspapers or on commercial television.
However, the court emphasised that the purpose of criticism or review must be genuine. If the person has other motives – especially if these motives involve using the material to make a profit, or using a competitor’s material to
divert customers from the competitor – the fact that they have also engaged in a form of criticism or review is not
enough to prevent the use from infringing copyright

James Delingpole’s ‘Watermelons’ was an excellent read. I look forward to reading this one.
‘Watermelons’ complete title was ‘Watermelons: How the Environmentalists are Killing the Planet, Destroying the Economy and Stealing Your Children’s Future’.
Despite this being a most apt title for Australia, it was thought our leftists sensibilities couldn’t cope with that. It was published as:
‘Killing the Planet to Save It’
James’ talks are almost booked out. Melbourne (of all places) has changed venues to accommodate more people.
It is a welcome sign that younger people are now attending events such as this book launch.
Thanks, Matt for the blog post. Btw, I too am wondering what our favourite decaf soy latte drinker would have thought of the whole thing.
