For years now News Weekly, to its credit, has led the charge against the climate change hysteria. At one stage it seemed a lost cause. But now, thanks to people like Viscount Christopher Monckton and Professor Ian Plimer, the climate is changing.
All the more surprising, then, to see Tony Abbott producing a watered-down policy on the ETS, which you rightly describe as “fairly pointless” (Canberra Observed, News Weekly, February 20, 2010).
No doubt it’s a political exercise to appease the Turnbullites in his ranks, but it does nothing to address the central issue – which is that man-made CO2 is a non-event.
Ian Plimer, in his masterpiece Heaven and Earth – Global Warming: The Missing Science, has urged us “to have the courage to thoughtfully do nothing”.
So is it not time to take the message out to the marketplace and alert people to this gigantic scam before it’s too late?
