Climate sense from Andrew Bolt

Another excellent article about Steve Fielding’s approach to the climate debate, and well worth the read:

STEVE Fielding has had a conversion that could blow apart the great global warming scare.

No wonder the Rudd Government is scrambling and the ABC is already sliming the Family First senator. You see, Fielding has suddenly realised that global warming may not be caused by humans after all.

What has startled him out of merely accepting we’re heating the world to hell with our carbon dioxide emissions is one fact in particular.

While our emissions are increasing fast each year, satellite measurements show the world’s temperatures have still not risen above the 1998 record, and have actually fallen since 2002.

Of course, all this has been pointed out before. I’ve asked both Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and Climate Change Minister Penny Wong – to their faces – to explain why the world isn’t still warming as it should if their global warming theories are right.

Neither has given me an answer. Nor have they answered similar challenges from the few sceptics in Parliament who have dared to reveal themselves – notably the Nationals’ Barnaby Joyce and the Liberals’ Dennis Jensen.

    Thanks for your excellent blog. Do you have a "tip jar"?

  2. I think you're right. The green left love tipping points, and here's one, a courageous politician who stands up and simply says "please explain".The NZ government, and public will be watching with intense interest as this high noon scenario develops…

    To Neil – no, not yet, but thanks for the suggestion!

    Arctic sea ice thickening which Andrew Bolt Herald Sun columnist and other skeptics are claiming to be due to global cooling is in fact part of the sporadic nature and picture of the global warming phenomena such as the recent snow falls in Mt Hotham which occurred only a day after the extreme Victorian bush fires, there can be a heat wave in one part of the state while there is a hail storm in another or ice formation in one part of the world and ice depletion in another.It is for this exact reason why global warming and the growing unpredictable weather patterns are of such concern because they not only endanger our food supply but our way of life and the future of everything. Whether global warming is man made or not or who is right or wrong on the issue is totally irrelevant the whole issue is about “how to manage the risk" .

  5. Eerik Owerhall says:

    I can just see these climate skeptics standing on a beach somewhere sometime in the future observing the waters on the beach receding abruptly out into the ocean, I am sure they would merely think that it was attributable to some full moon influence or some other weird phenomena, and while in the process of conjuring a counter argument people would be scrambling to take cover and head for the hills, as there was one mother of a wave (global warming) approaching over the horizon.

  6. Simon from Sydney says:

    I agree with one comment, Eerik – namely, that the whole issue is about "how to manage the risk". Climate changes, always has. Adaptation is the key.
