Ah what joy the latte Sippers of the world bring to this aging conservative especially as they bend over backwards to prove with this post that they are absolutely enmeshed in rather puerile group-think. In any event I invite my dear readers to check out this post and be amazed at how 37 (at the time it came to my attention ) of them cut and pasting the same paragraph.
Any one for lamb chops?
This sort of political posturing is rather futile but also rather sadly amusing,
“I hereby pledge to do my utmost in 2013 and beyond to ensure that Tony Abbott never becomes the Prime Minister of Australia.
I will engage on the issues, on matters of character and on the facts that demonstrate that Tony Abbott is unsuitable to be Prime Minister of Australia. I know that any government lead by Tony Abbott, or any government that follows his lead, would inflict deep and lasting damage to the fabric of Australia that we trust and depend upon. I will expend any and all energies required to ensure Tony Abbott and his values are kept from The Lodge and the government benches in Parliament.”
To take the pledge copy and paste the pledge with your name to the comments below.
The Age is usually such a rabid AGW advocate but maybe this is the start of a new more balanced approach to the issue of climate change. Maybe its just a the removal of the execrable Jo Chandler from their staff that has seen them mellow, most likely its just a reflection of the fact that the interregnum between Christmas and new year is a time when regular writers are away on leave and the need for copy to fill the paper allows them to cast a wider net than usual. No matter what the reasons for its publication I found the piece by John Spooner most refreshing and worthy of praise:
I hope that the real reason that this piece has got such a prominent place in today’s Age is that the minions at Fairfax are finally realising that they have hitched their faith to a false religion and that its apparently golden idols are nothing but tat and cheap wax, that the cold hard light of truth is turning them into the misshapen formless blobs that we sceptics always thought that they were.
- Sceptics cool on climate studies (smh.com.au)
- George Monbiot, millenarian prophecy and his desire to see western society back into an “energy dark age” (iainhall.wordpress.com)
- The choices of Andrew Bolt: “Worry about the climate? I’d rather have an orgy!” (watchingthedeniers.wordpress.com)
- Climate change conforming to UN predictions: scientists (abc.net.au)
Another climate change conference has ended without agreement, like just who could have seen that coming? These Synods of the Green faith are ever thus. Their priests sing the usual elements of the liturgy and give the faithful the fire and brimstone prophecies that are the staple of this religion but their conversion rate is very low indeed these days. Of course there are always a couple of fools who jump up in their seats and shout Hallelujah very loudly in an attempt to convince themselves as much as anyone else that they are such pious followers of the true faith but when even the majority of the faithful are more reticent as the value of such meetings becomes even more evident.
We all want to live in a cleaner world, a world where humanity steps lightly enough upon the earth that our civilisation will be sustainable and enduring but this pernicious Green religion will never achieve that because it is intrinsically misanthropic and it relies too much upon misleading memes like the labelling of Carbon dioxide as a pollutant which leads to some rather convoluted and erroneous arguments that draw false comparisons about the nature of our impacts upon the planet.
Ah well maybe we should be a little more forgiving for such foolishness, as someone is reported to have said “forgive them father, for they know not what they do”
Sigh very much, Comrades
There are times when the death penalty is unquestionably justified, the execution of Mohammad Ajmal Kasab
Despite the fact that hanging is to quick and painless for this class of scum-bag the short lead time between his trial and execution suggests that a capital case need not be as drawn out and expensive as trails tend to be in the United states when a truly evil man is quickly dispatched.
Its one of life’s great ironies that so many of the Greens come from the more affluent strata of our society and that many of them have enjoyed the fruits of private education yet their party has been fiercely opposed to any contribution to private schooling from the public purse, Maybe its because they feel guilt about their histories personal privilege and seek some sort of socialist atonement by becoming such fervent advocates for public schooling. One can only speculate about how the Greens supporters will react to the party now deciding to soften their position on education funding in the wake of their trouncing in state and territory elections:
Personally I think we are seeing a rather desperate rearrangement of the deckchairs on the party liner and those of us who are happy to see this party of religious zealotry about “climate change” and deep left ideology brought low think that there may be a better way:
After-all don’t those pesky Greens believe in composting and recycling?
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.
CO2 not only heats up the planet but it also makes you fat!!!!, well according to the men in white coats it does!
You have got to just love the way that just about everything can be co-opted to the Warminista faith as proof that “climate change is real” But this example is one of the more loopy ones out there.
Like so many aspects of the Warminista liturgy this argument takes a simple coincidence and elevates it far beyond credible logic or reasoned argument, Is it any wonder that we can see the arse of the Goddess under those new “Green” threads?
