Charles Mackay in his mid 19th century book, Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds could well have been writing about the climate catastrophists and political class in Australia in 2017.
Hear and see it for yourself from Australia’s Chief Scientist, Alan Finkel in Senate Estimates.
We could totally shut down Australia and our non participation in the world economy would make no difference to the climate.
Our preening and posturing political class are simply in the business of big noting and prostrating themselves before the UN and strutting their moral vanity on the world stage.
Senator Ian Macdonald: In Australia, we emit, less than 1.3% of the world emissions.
Chief Scientist Finkel: About that.
Senator Ian Macdonald: If we reduce the worlds carbon emissions by 1.3%, what impact would that have on the changing climate of the world.
Chief Scientist Finkel: Virtually nothing.
