Refreshing on climate
Maurice Newman provides a refreshing view on climate change (“Zero at the equator? The so-called climate experts have gone troppo”, 9/11). By 2030 it will be obvious that the cli- mate change movement is a fraud. Carbon dioxide emission levels worldwide will be much higher because countries such as China will continue to increase their emissions. It will also be evident that as emissions have risen steadily over the past century, if it was a problem it would have manifested itself before now.
By 2030, the renewables scene will be in a mess. Roof-top panels, wind generators and lithium batteries will be reaching the end of their useful lives and there’ll be a huge bill to replace them. By then the unreliability of renewable power will be obvious to all, and we will be sick of blackouts.
We can only hope common sense will prevail, and promoters of climate change will have long since disappeared in embarrassment. R. Watson, Sunnybank Hills, Qld
The climate change story must continue to be believed because too many people profit from it. Climate science is now just part of the propaganda of politics and corporate robbery, and is crafted to fit the story. Parties com- pete to show us who is the most committed to tackling climate change, the renewable energy industry robs us blind while clothing itself in virtue, activists froth at the mouth and the country falls to pieces.
No matter what level of economic suicide we contemplate it will never be enough to appease those with “the knowledge”. As long as people continue to suspend rationality and believe in the theory that a benign trace gas that is the basis of all life on Earth has some magical property to trap heat and control the climate we will never be free of these charlatans.
