Al Gore: Australia's the way to go!

Full of climate misinformation

Not sure if Al is being serious here, but a recent blog post from Al “Three F-ing Huge Monitors” Gore [what’s the carbon footprint of that little set up? No, wait – “do what I say, not what I do”, isn’t it?] seems to indicate that he thinks Australia’s climate protests are something to be imitated, and pins the credit on his misleading “Climate Project” slide show:

Around the world, when politicians fail to act to solve the climate crisis, people are taking action:

Tens of thousands of protesters – and a few skeptics – have taken to the streets across Australia to urge the major political parties to take action on climate change.”

“Both Labor and the coalition have failed to take decisive action to cut Australia’s pollution levels in the run-up to the federal election, Walk Against Warming rallies in Australia’s capital cities heard on Sunday.”

It is my hope we see activism like this here in the United States. A special thanks goes out to those I trained in Australia to give my slide show. They played a major role in the events:

“In Sydney, Al Gore’s Climate Project presenter, Nell Schofield, attracted huge cheers when she said Australia’s lack of political action on climate change was “not only embarrassing, it is morally reprehensible”. (source)

Unfortunately for Al, the protests were a dismal failure, with numbers down yet again, as ACM reported:

MORE than 40,000 turned up in 2006, but just 10,000 people participated in the Walk Against Warming, an annual march through the city to protest against government inaction on climate change. (source)

Let’s hope the rest of the world takes Australia’s lead, just as Al wants.

The waning "Walk against Warming"

What does being vegan have to do with climate change (see top right)?

From 40,000 in 2006 to barely 10,000 in 2010. That’s the number of people who protested yesterday against “the greatest moral challenge since the dawn of time” or something (© KRudd). Maybe it’s because the population is slowly waking up to the spin and lies of the warmists. The march consisted of a few ageing hippies, commies who want to use climate change to bring in a new social(-ist) world order, and the “yoof” of Australia, many of whom, despite holding university degrees, have not the first inkling about critical thought, and blindly swallow whole the spin and misrepresentations of the Sydney Morning Herald and the Labor government. You just have to look at how many 18-24 year olds are planning to vote Green to see that.

Even the SMH, peddler of so much climate alarmism over the years, concedes it was a PR disaster:

MORE than 40,000 turned up in 2006, but just 10,000 people participated in the Walk Against Warming, an annual march through the city to protest against government inaction on climate change.

Pepe Clarke, the chief executive of the Nature Conservation Council of NSW, had hoped to build on the 15,000 who marched during the Copenhagen Summit last year, but the rally shrank yet again.

”I don’t think it’s representative of people thinking climate change is no longer an issue,” said one protester, David McElroy, 27. ”I think there might just be a little bit of despair associated with it. I think people were so hopeful at the last election that things were going to happen and it just ended up being a whole lot of talk.” (source)

Yeah, the despair that global warming isn’t going to be the pathway to global socialism. And even 10,000 is probably wildly optimistic, given that the organisers of these protests are wont to inflate figures (like the warmists inflate global temperatures). The ABC says “more than 1,000” (source) – hardly 10,000 is it?!

And in news you won’t read on the ABC or SMH web sites:

It has been the coldest summer on record north of 80N, and temperatures have dropped below freezing ahead of the average date. (source)

I wonder if any of the protesters knew that?

Post-Copenhagen civil disobedience starts already…

Smash the State

Let’s hope this isn’t a sign of things to come. The first protest in response to the outcome of Copenhagen:

Environmentalists have chained themselves to a coal train and rail tracks in Newcastle in protest against the outcome of Copenhagen’s climate talks.

The 25 activists marched onto the tracks at the Kooragang coal export terminal about 9am (AEDT) on Sunday, stopping a train and occupying a bridge.

The action, organised by the environmental group Rising Tide, aims to shut down coal exports from Newcastle, the world’s busiest coal terminal.

Spokesman for the group Steve Phillips said the protest is an act of desperation after the UN climate talks in Copenhagen failed to produce a just, effective and legally binding treaty.

“The US, Australia and other wealthy countries wrecked the talks,” Mr Phillips told AAP.

“People are tired of seeing our leaders fail to address to problem of climate change – we want to undertake bold and long-lasting action.”

For some reason, some people, believing themselves to be on a crusade to save the planet, think that democracy just isn’t good enough. Throw away the key.
