How many people are aware that two-thirds of the warming predicted by the IPCC comes from water vapor? How many people are aware the earth has not warmed for the last decade? How many people are aware of the lies in An Inconvenient Truth including Gore’s misrepresentation of the Vostok ice core data? You never see any of these things in the mainstream media, do you? Why is this withheld from the public? When we are being asked to implement widespread changes to our economy and our lifestyle, I think we have a right to know what this is based on.
Dr David Evans spoke at a ‘no carbon tax’ rally recently, explaining some of these things to a public who have been kept in the dark. By spreading this information, the people will come to realise that they are being fooled. Knowledge is the key here. It has been shown that the more people know about the science, the more likely they are to be skeptics. Chris Mooney thinks this is a bad thing.
I still believe that people power can stop the carbon dioxide tax from being implemented. While Gillard and Brown stubbornly push for it, enough people against it (as if you need many more than you have already) may sway enough labor politicians to dump the prime minister, and heed the will of the Australian people. Knowledge will be the catalyst for this.
