Climate Fool of the Week #2

On Sunday, she announced her carbon dioxide tax. The one that she lied about and everyone hates. Yeah, that one. Then, on Monday there was the horrible Q&A performance where she danced around every question, giving the same patronising responses we’ve become accustomed to. A couple of days later, she was confronted in a Brisbane shopping centre by an irate voter and was again unimpressive. When Bob Brown made the suggestion to have an inquiry into opinion pieces in the media, she indulged him in his fantasy. Then, of course there were the crocodile tears at the Canberra Press Gallery. Yes, this week’s Climate Fool is the prime minister Julia Gillard. It has truly been a week from hell for her. Not to mention the new opinion polls.

Two dishonourable mentions this week. The first goes to Bob Brown for his calls for a review of editorial content. He declared to the country this week, that he doesn’t care for free speech.

The other goes to Mark Riley for asking the prime minister’s advice on how to sell her tax. It is the responsibility of a journalist to seek the truth and keep the people in charge honest, not to pump them up. Mark Riley is not a journalist. He is a sycophant and a mindless zombie. This is what the National Press Club has descended into; a cheer squad for the government.

About Climate Nonconformist

Hi, I'm the climatenonconformist (not my real name), and I am a global warming skeptic, among the few in generation Y. With Australia facing the prospect of a carbon tax, we need to be asking the simple question; where is the evidence that our emissions are causing any dangerous warming?

    At least we now have a new verb: to riley (trans. and intrans.), “to question a politician or public official with self-abasing sycophancy.”
    Riley’s egregious out-rileying all the other deferential lickspittles when he rileyed Gillard has also finally revealed to many Australians, too-long unaware of the decline of journalism, how compliant our cheer-leading “journalists” have been.
