The Age declares war

Bolt on how The Age, unable to call KRudd out as the liar he is, as demonstrated by Andrew on a number of occasions, takes a mere four hours to call Abbott out on his “first big lie.

Pathetic. What a bunch of ratbags, and what yet another example of what real journalism is not.


Abbott’s 7:30 report interview is up.

UPDATE II – post watching the 7:30 report.

This would be cliche if it were only us saying it and Kerry not consistently doing it; if only he were so tough on the Labor pollies. That said, Abbott handled him well. Not bad for a first interview, though he shouldn’t have apologised for his past behaviour – although Bolt refugees aren’t the only demographic he has to appeal to.

Abbott and the rest of them need to zero-in on Climategate. It’s a perfect exit strategy from Howard’s ETS. Behind closed doors, one can only hope they’re considering this. They should bite the bullet and do it. It’s a gamble, but their best improbable shot of snatching the next election. No more dilly-dallying – which was still evident in tonight’s interview. Of course Labor are using that FAR right nonsense lingo. It’s effective at the moment but it shows they’re scared to be coming up with such emotive sound grabs so early.

Taxes don’t change temperature.

Climategate: More CRU= TGP Pr0n!

I must say, this is the best “CRUdGate” story yet:

“Let’s start at the top, and bear with me.

If the climate and recent changes are not unprecedented, then there’s nothing to do. Let’s go to the pub.

If it is unprecedented, then we need to know why. If we don’t know if it is unprecedented or if we don’t know why, we need to stop here until we can find out.
If it is unprecedented but it’s not us, then we need to question seriously if there is anything that we can do about it and the answer to that is very very likely to be “no”.

If it is us, we then to move into economics. Will the damage outweigh the benefit?

And even if the damage does outweigh the benefit, we still need to consider if the cost of stopping the climate change at source is less than the cost of adapting to the problem to minimise the damage.

And even if the mitigation does cost less than adaptation, we need to ask if our only option for mitigation is to subborn all our freedom to a putative benevolent world government.
Only if you can answer “yes” all the way down that chain can you get to Copenhagen. One misstep and you are looking at adaptation, either because we shouldn’t do anything, or it’s the best thing to do or the alternative is so appallingly ghastly, depending on which route you took to get there.”

You simply must read the rest! It’s as good as TGP!


Tuesday Bolt

Abbott wins… Bolt goes in hard – 14 updates and counting.

Rudd is a denier

Just say sorry for your wind… heheh, cheeky. Terry McCrann adocates a National Apology on Climate Change.

Let the peasants walk… all about stupid crap like banning ice water in restaurants and other totalitarian sui-fellation – advocated by a top ICCP climate scientist (go figure)

The bad war was better for us… an Iraq/Afghanistan piece.
