Wong: fully duped

The Wong-bot gets the Jo Nova treatment

Reaction to Penny Wong’s recent speech (see here) has been astonishing:

Jo Nova brilliantly takes it apart piece by piece (and gives us a great graphic – see right):

Get ready for the startling Proof by Motherhood Statements & WhiteWash. I’m loosely Paraphrasing Penny, taking the liberty of including the fuller more accurate message (that I’m sure she would want to share)… [then adding a few thoughts].

A strong global agreement is apparently “manifestly in Australia’s own national interest” (and worth paying billions upon billions for). Why?

Roger Pielke Jr gives her the full treatment:

The bottom line is that there is no scientific evidence linking rising global temperatures to the increasing catastrophe losses around the world. Ironically enough, the scientific evidence includes the paper cited by Wong to suggest the opposite.

Climategate.com is also less than complimentary:

Our Australian skeptic friend, Val Majkus, has sent me a link to a speech made yesterday by Australian nutjob, Penny Wong, who is the Aussie Federal Minister for Climate Change and Water.

Wong somehow kept a straight face when she told the crowd: “Climate change [is] happening more quickly than we previously thought.”

Another great performance from Penny Wrong.

  1. Sean McHugh says:

    Is Abbott aware of any of this? I think it’s time for him to stop pussyfooting with this nonsense.

  2. The endless warmist campaign used to get me so angry. But now it’s becoming more and more like a Sitcom every day and can you believe the comedy material? Every day we are treated to more and more comedy gold. Who the hell is the writer of this comedic genius?

  3. ABC News Watch asking where ABC reporting is on this.

    A senior cabinet minister caught misleading the public and stone silence is all the ABC offers.

  4. What an appalling hypocite Wong is. It’s bad enough her making the cheap shot about tobacco and skeptics at the Kool-Aid Drinkers Convention in Adelaide, but look at her own record. Check out the grants listed on her Dept of Climate Change Sheltered Workshop Website:

    http://www.climatechange.gov.au/about/grants.aspx

    She obviously doesn’t see any problem with blatantly tipping money in to help fund the corrupt IPCC – in the interests of producing the garbage that supports the argument that she and the Rudd government are pushing. Talk about a conflict of interest. (Also note that the IPCC is NOT mentioned anywhere on the Website – you have to look into the grant papers themselves to dig this little gem of info out. Wonder why she would want to hide this?).

    In case you ever wondered why all these academics are such fervent believers in the whole AGW scam, you might want to review the following examples of your tax dollars at work funding their jollies:
