Aussie PM’s Climate War reported on ABC (Australia) News and The Age 6 Nov 2009. In an address to Lowy Institute, Kevin Rudd, Prime Minister of Australia, has delivered a “fierce attack” on those who question man-made global warming, calling them “reckless gamblers who are betting all our futures on their arrogant assumption that their intuitions should triumph over the evidence.” He went on to say: You are betting our jobs, our houses, our farms, our reefs, our economy and our future on an intuition, on a gut feeling, on a political prejudice you have about science.” According to Rudd their real agenda is “to destroy the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme at home and it is to destroy agreed global action on climate change abroad.”


Editorial Comment: The “Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme” is a carbon tax scheme that Rudd has been trying to establish in Australia, but has been frustrated because his political party does not control both houses of Parliament and cannot get the legislation passed. As the UN climate conference approaches, Climate Agenda politicians are getting more strident in the scorn they hurl at those who question man-made global warming. Perhaps they realise they may be losing the battle and won’t be able to gain the extra power and money they crave. Observations of the real world rather than man-made computer modelling, shows that the global warming has ceased for the past decade even though CO2 has increased and this information is slowly seeping out to the general public, especially to those who have endured two recent very cold winters. If the truth does manage to reach the majority of people, politicians like Rudd will lose the trust of the electorate and people will become harder to govern. Who knows what tactics they may resort to, to stay in power? (Ref. politics, controversy, environmentalism)
