|No Wind generator turning!|
Keith Wheeler writes for the Riverina Daily Advertiser. It seems that the Riverina gets it!
I enjoyed Tim Flannery’s Two on the Great Divide series which finished a couple of weeks ago. I particularly liked the scene with Tim and travelling companion John Doyle facing wind, rain and sleet in the Victorian Alps.
However, the Lake George wind farm, with Tim up a wind tower preaching how wind power will save the world, while not a wind generator in the background was turning, was the best part.
And near the end of the series, there was Tim Flannery talking about Gaia, unaware that Gaia’s inventor had denounced the whole idea, calling it “alarmist”, and bagging Tim Flannery (as well as Al Gore) in the process.See James Lovelock turns his back on global warming. Also the quote under the banner above.
Lovelock now says that his terrifying predictions of climate change’s deadly impact on the planet were “alarmist”.
Five years ago Lovelock had claimed: “Before this century is over billions of us will die and the few breeding pairs of people that survive will be in the Arctic where the climate remains tolerable.”
Lovelock is now quoted in The Daily Mail as saying: “The problem is we don’t know what the climate is doing. We thought we knew 20 years ago. That led to some alarmist books – mine included – because it looked clear cut, but it hasn’t happened. The climate is doing its usual tricks. There’s nothing much really happening yet.Mr Wheeler the turns his attention to ABC TV's chief AGW alarmist Tony Jones:
So it was with some sympathy that I watched Australia’s leading climate change advocate, the ABC’s Tony Jones, trying to steer his special Climate Change edition of Q&A back to the dogma.
He should move on. The public is becoming increasingly aware that “climate change” is just a leftist euphemism for higher taxes and big government.
