The redundancy of Tim Flannery

Tim Flannery has had a really good session with his nose in the money trough under the patronage of the Labor Government but of course he should be unsurprised that when his patron falls that he will be cut off from the largesses that he has enjoyed over the last few years.

What amazes me is that under a Labor government we have seen the creation of such a useless department as the one devoted to climate change, worse still that they have been paying Flannery so much money to sprout the same nonsense that the waterfront home-owner has so hypercritically been yelling from the roof tops for free.

Sadly I expect that making Flannery redundant will  probably entail a substantial severance package. Even so the nation will be better off on the day that he has to front up to centerlink ….

Cheers Comrades

The relief felt is amazing

    Oooh! It’s so easy to shoot the messenger, especially when the message is; a) what you don’t want to hear because you believe it’s ‘bullshit’ and; b) it’s ACTUALLY happening and ruining your perspective on reality and; c) other countries are doing something about it and you will be forced too as well by the Global economic community!

    Fortunately Flannery will not be under any circumstances be shot, he will however be deprived of access to the trough. Now for your reasoning:

    a) what you don’t want to hear because you believe it’s ‘bullshit’

    I am prepared to hear even bullshit, what I object to is the government paying the spreader of bovine excrement a great deal of money to say something that he would say to me for free.

    b) it’s ACTUALLY happening and ruining your perspective on reality

    Of course I acknowledge the nature if our climate is very dynamic and that knowledge in no sense ruins my appreciation of objective reality.

    c) other countries are doing something about it and you will be forced too as well by the Global economic community!

    The difference between us is that I can tell the difference between lip service and actual action.

    and I think that Abbott is the one stating the obvious 😉

    If you read the introductory part of my comments I think you’ll find that the reference is really directed at Tony Abbott rather than you!
    Have a look at IPCC WGI Fifth Assessment Report (the nicked draft). The technical summary will suffice unless you want to wade through all the science. Once you have feel free to tell me that it’s not happening and provide your arguments. I’ll be more than happy to listen!
    Flannery being shot was poetic licence, analogy — call it what you will!
    Cheers 🙂

    Self-acclaimed white coat wearer deknarf, I’m assuming he’s neither a professor or doctor, although he could have been a lab assistant, reckons:

    Well I did, but unfortunately there wasn’t a link to the ‘nicked’ draft. All the official IPCC document has this to say is this obfuscation.

    Meanwhile the skeptical press reports that global warming stopped sixteen years ago.

    Perhaps Professor deknarf can explain this anomaly. While he’s at it, perhaps he can explain how Flannery, the subject of this post, has failed in every prediction he has ever made.

    Shoot the messenger?

    That’s far too kind. Cut off his salary and demand a refund would be better.

    The guy is a charlatan.
