Cli­mate change club a farce

SLAM­MING DAWS

Kalgoorlie Miner - - OPINION - Doug Daws

I don’t want to sound too def­i­nite about it but this whole de­bate about cli­mate change be­ing caused, or in­flu­enced, by hu­man ac­tiv­ity is a fraud.

Just as snow quickly dis­ap­pears on the desert sand, so will this cooked-up non­sense soon dis­ap­pear as the truth about the fraud is fi­nally re­vealed.

Those that con­tinue to pro­mote it either have a vested in­ter­est in the sub­ject them­selves, are eas­ily in­flu­enced by peo­ple with mer­ce­nary or other un­wor­thy mo­tives, or are in­ca­pable of work­ing it out for them­selves.

And what can I say about Prince Charles, who by his ut­ter­ances this week has shown yet again what a dill he re­ally is.

If he thinks his at­ten­dance at an­other talk-fest, this time in Paris, will do dib­bly squat about chang­ing the course of cli­mate change then he’s as silly, or even sil­lier, than many of his an­ces­tors were, and most of us now be­lieve.

What’s that you say? “Off with my head” and me a roy­al­ist as well! Never.

Talk­ing of pri­mary roles, ask your­self what has hap­pened to Pro­fes­sor Flim Flam­mery, the self-ap­pointed guru — the master of dud pre­dic­tions.

Even though he’s off our radar-screen and now com­pletely ir­rel­e­vant, you surely will re­mem­ber his tau­tol­ogy on the prob­lems head­ing our way be­cause the more naughty of us — the so-called scep­tics — re­fused to ac­cept the non­sense from him and oth­ers of his cud­dly club.

He’s the one who told us that the cli­mate had warmed so much that we had to now ex­pect an al­most per­pet­ual drought, who said the dams will never fill and the rivers will never again run, as they once did.

He was wrong, ter­ri­bly wrong, and when the dams on the east coast filled to over­flow­ing, caus­ing mas­sive flood dam­age, he sim­ply put his char­iot into re­verse and claimed the floods were fur­ther ev­i­dence of cli­mate change.

Doubt­less this false prophet will be at­tend­ing the Paris con­fer­ence on cli­mate change along with all of his “fel­low trav­ellers” in one of the great­est global frauds ever per­pe­trated.

And doubt­less we, the tax­payer, will be pay­ing for his at­ten­dance.

I note they haven’t both­ered to meet in any of the Third World trou­ble spots or the worst pol­lut­ing na­tion — China.

No it’s Ber­lin, Copenhagen, Geneva, Mi­lan, Buenos Aires and Bali along with other de­lec­ta­ble hol­i­day spots.

You can bet that they won’t be invit­ing, or pay­ing for, the at­ten­dance of any of the mul­ti­tude of highly cre­den­tialed scep­tics. John Cole­man, a co-founder of the Weather Chan­nel, says heat waves have di­min­ished, not in­creased, and the num­ber and strength of storms are di­min­ish­ing.

Sadly, the pro­to­cols now wrapped around the mumbo-jumbo pack­age adopted by the na­tions stupid enough to be­come part of the In­ter­na­tional Panel on Cli­mate Change, in­clud­ing Aus­tralia, will cost tril­lions of dol­lars to in­tro­duce and man­age, and will have as much ef­fect on chang­ing global cli­mates as tak­ing your el­bow out of a bucket of wa­ter.

Or in al­ter­na­tive lan­guage, have as much chance of do­ing any­thing worth­while as a politi­cian’s prom­ise.

With Prince Charles now des­tined to join the gag­gle of free-load­ing tourists in Paris, the gang of clowns is com­plete.

No hope for any­thing that will amount to much and the il­lu­sion will dis­ap­pear al­most as quickly as snow on the desert sand. That’s my opin­ion, what do you think?
