Bob Carr’s cock-up laden first week culminated in a maiden speech which confirms him as a total climate moonbat, to add to his talent for foreign policy gaffes. Not a great asset in a Foreign Minister. Here are a few select quotes:
“Human activity is changing our planet,” he said.
“Each decade has been warmer than the previous one since the 1950s … the Earth that we knew has changed.”
Senator Carr said it was up to Australia to protect the islands of the South Pacific and take bold Australian ideas to the world stage.
Proving he is well read, he referenced many historians, climate scientists and quoted from several books in his speech.
“When I first started reading about it in the late 1980s, what was prophecy is the way we live now,” Senator Carr said.
“Bill Clinton described global warming as nature’s weapon of mass destruction and the brilliant author Bill McKibben in his book Earth reminded us that this is the way we live now, this phenomenon is upon us.” (source)
Pass the Kool-Aid, Bob. Now f**k off. Sorry…
UPDATE: I should explain that having suffered under Carr as premier of NSW when I first arrived in 2005, and then his equally hopeless successors, Morris Iemma, Nathan Rees and Kristina Kennealy, who ground my home state into the dust with their spectacular incompetence and arrogance, I feel more than a little annoyance with Carr now lording it up in the Senate, spouting the same old crap he spouted in Macquarie Street. Grrr…
