Viv Forbes, Chairman,
It has been discovered that Australian coal has a magical property – it is one of a small group of coals which produces an invisible gas with super-natural properties.
This magic gas, carbon dioxide, first became famous for its claimed ability to warm the whole world, thus removing the threat of a new ice age. The British academic who reported this magic power claimed that winter snow would become “a very rare and exciting event”.
Then an Australian guru predicted that just a tiny addition of magic-gas to the atmosphere would abolish floods, and billions of dollars were spent constructing water desalination plants to combat his forecast of never-ending droughts.
Then after massive snows in Britain and huge floods in Australia, it was widely reported that magic-gas could produce both heatwaves and snowstorms, floods and droughts and even bushfires, cyclones and tornadoes, depending on the way the political winds were blowing in that country.
Strangely, only a few countries are able to produce “magic-gas”. A special exclusive club called the Kyoto Club was formed for these lucky countries. Membership fees are stratospheric, but members are rewarded with invitations to lavish UN conventions at top tourist destinations. However, many founding members have allowed their membership to lapse, leaving only EU, Australia and New Zealand as fully paid up members.
Coals burnt in Russia, India, China, Brazil, South Africa, Indonesia, Korea, Japan, Canada and USA produce carbon dioxide but their gas apparently lacks the magic climate-altering properties of Australian magic-gas. Amazingly, these properties are lost if Australian coal is burnt overseas – once loaded on a ship the magic disappears.
There are a few unpatriotic Australians who think the whole “magic-gas” thing is a big con, and just an excuse for a new tax. Worried that the world may become sceptical of the magic-gas story, CSIRO has been charged to re-educate these dangerous and deluded sceptics. Vast sums are also being spent by academics to invent more climate-bending properties for carbon dioxide, and regular dramatic announcements are expected on the ABC and the BBC.
Editorial note; Some warmists are so neurotic that they raise the possibility of global warming induced asteroid strikes.
Extreme Weather is Nothing New
The great snowstorm NSW 4-5th July, 1900 – an extreme weather event before CO2 was invented. This is a copy of the original report.(scroll down past some blank space).
Prof James Lovelock on: The Blind Worship of Windmills
“We never intended a fundamentalist Green movement that rejected all energy sources other than renewable, nor did we expect the Greens to cast aside our priceless ecological heritage because of their failure to understand that the needs of the Earth are not separable from human needs."
The veteran environmentalist added:
"We need to take care that the spinning windmills do not become like the statues on Easter Island - monuments of a failed civilisation."
The Last Word
CSIROh! Malcolm Roberts has taken a close look at the main taxpayer-funded organisations in Australia promoting the idea that man-made production of carbon dioxide is causing dangerous climate change. His findings demand answers.
Reminder, Lord Christopher Monckton is returning to Australia and New Zealand. For details see here.
Finally, Politicians on Drugs. Footballers on drugs don’t worry me, but politicians can do a lot of damage, even on caffeine.
Some politicians believe a tax on the production of carbon dioxide in Australia will change the world’s climate. They are surely hallucinating and should be drug tested.
