With the release of the climate commissions report, ‘The Critical Decade’, Julia Gillard stated, “We don’t have time … for false claims in this debate”. I agree with the prime minister, false claims are detrimental to healthy debate. So lets go through the false claims of her and other global warming propagandaists.
“The science is in, climate change is real. The science is clear – man-made carbon pollution is making a difference to our planet and our climate”-Julia Gillard. First of all, science is very rarely “in”. There is always debate regarding scientific issues and global warming is no exception. Yes, we know climate change is real, climate has changed ever since the earth was formed. Just yesterday I watched a documentary regarding the collapse of the Egyptian empire at the hands of natural climate change. On the third part of this statement, there is no evidence that backs this up and in fact the evidence points to primarily natural influences.
‘’Or the CSIRO, the Australian Academy of Science, the Bureau of Meteorology, NASA, the US National Atmospheric Administration, and every reputable climate scientist in the world?’’ Every? Off the top of my head; Lindzen, Christy, Singer, Corbyn, Reiter, Svensmark, Michaels, Shaviv, Carter and Pilmer are all reputable scientists in climate or related fields.
How about that climate commission report? The Galileo Movement exposes the lack of science in its key findings. Most notably, the atmosphere and the oceans aren’t even warming.
So yes prime minister, Australia does not have time for false claims, especially when you wish to impose such a radical and dangerous piece of legislation like the carbon tax. I suggest she clean up some of her own statements first before deriding skeptics, who actually base our arguments on scientific facts rather than resorting to smears and outright attacks.
