Fairfax Fantasy: Kilimanjaro glaciers shrinking due to global warming

Like a bad penny, this story just keeps cropping up. It started in Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth, and has been repeated thousands of time since. Trouble is, it’s just not true: The snows capping Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s tallest peak, are shrinking rapidly and could vanish altogether in 20 years, most likely due to global warming, a Full story

CSIRO bid to gag ETS attack

The CSIRO is supposed to be the nation’s top scientific body, but it is up to its neck in the grubby politics of climate change by attempting to silence a critic of the government’s oh-so-wonderful ETS: THE nation’s peak science agency has tried to gag the publication of a paper by one of its senior environmental Full story

UPDATED: Comedy headline: ‘Proof’ humans cause global warming

See, the science is settled, you denier you. Just like a handful of trees in Siberia created the Hockey Stick, now we have a bunch of sediment cores in the middle of Canada cherry-picked to show that the Medieval Warm Period didn't exist, the Roman Warm Period didn't exist, the Holocene climate optimum didn't exist, it's warmer now than in the last 200 gazillion years, ...

Libs to face “disciplinary action” if they are disloyal on ETS

This whole ETS debacle isn't exacly what parliamentary democracy is about. For a start, I cannot remember an occasion where an opposition "negotiated" with a sitting government on a bill. The job of the opposition is to hold the government to account in Parliament, not usurp the authority of Parliament by holding clandestine meetings in order to reach an "agreement" before a vote. ...

Climate sense from Bob Carter

Writing in Quadrant Online's Doomed Planet section, Bob Carter spells out Malcolm Turnbull's misunderstanding of the climate issue: Mr Turnbull has missed the point entirely, and in breathtaking fashion. No-one is suggesting doing nothing about climate change. Calamitous natural climatic events such as this year’s bushfires and floods have properly convinced the general public that a national policy to deal with real climate events ... Full story

Climate extremists tell Rudd: don’t negotiate the ETS

This could be the best news we've heard all week. A group comprising some of the worst climate alarmists on the planet have threatened to withdraw their support for the ETS if it is "watered down": The Southern Cross Climate Coalition - which includes the Australian Conservation Foundation, Climate Institute, World Wildlife Fund, Australian Council of Social Service and ACTU - has written to Prime ...

Turnbull reveals that it’s popularity that’s the key to ETS policy

Bugger your principles, just as long as we're popular. That's the message from Malcolm Turnbull today, as he takes aim at "climate sceptics". I always thought that honourable politicians stood up for their principles, and didn't run around trying desperately to be liked - clearly I was wrong. "If you want to go out there on the climate sceptic platform, believe me you'll get ... Full story

Turnbull risks all on ETS

Now is the time for all good men (and women) to come to the aid of the Party - in this case, the Liberal party. The backbenchers need to stand up for their principles and not be steamrollered by their worryingly green-tinged leader: MALCOLM Turnbull is on a collision course with his own back bench after staking his leadership on a demand that they back ...

Angry response to Turnbull’s threat

Malcolm Turnbull's threat to quit has provoked all sorts of hostile reaction, as was to be expected: Nationals Senate leader Barnaby Joyce told The Australian Online today the bottom line was that Mr Turnbull  “is not the leader of my party”. And rebel Liberal MP Mr Tuckey has fired back on calls he fall into line, warning Mr Turnbull that the last ... Full story

Turnbull threatens to quit over ETS

Don't give us any ideas… In a fit of petulence, Malcolm Turnbull appears to have lost all grip on reality and is laying down a challenge to his backbenchers - back me or I quit. The trouble is, he may live to regret it, since the result is far from a foregone conclusion. Federal Opposition Leader Malcolm Turnbull has threatened to resign if his Liberal ... Full story
