Lies and pointless gestures

Terry McCrann checks Julia Gillard’s latest global warming article and really cuts to the nub of what is important:

There was Julia herself at it again today using the word  “carbon” or variants no less than 23 times in one column. She managed an extraordinary six uses of the term in just two successive sentences. 
We all know the utterly disgraceful game that you and she and the rest of your colleagues are playing - proposing actual policy. 
Greenhouse gas emissions increased by a record amount last year, to the highest carbon output in history, putting hopes of holding global warming to safe levels all but out of reach, according to unpublished estimates from the International Energy Agency… 
Last year, a record 30.6 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide poured into the atmosphere, mainly from burning fossil fuel – a rise of 1.6Gt on 2009.
Why should Australia do anything?

  1. Hi Andrew - I have a wonderful idea for your next show. You could interview one of your friends from the tobacco industry to expose many of the left wing lies about smoking. Emphysema? Bah! Its just nothing but people with asthma. And name just ten people who's lung cancer can absolutely beyond doubt be linked to smoking? Like you I have absolutely no medical training whatsoever and even I can see how true these simple facts are.

    I'm sure you will both be nodding heads vigorously in agreement throughout the interview. You could even smoke on set to show how safe it is. Don't bother bringing on any doctors, people from the anti cancer council or anyone else with an opposing view though. What would they know?
