PM Kevin Rudd to Turnbull - sign up to global warming laws or Opera House goes ...


The Federal Government has warned that Australian icons such as the Great Barrier Reef, Kakadu National Park, the Tasmanian wilderness, Carlton Gardens and the Sydney Opera House could be damaged irreparably if the Coalition fails to support Labor’s emissions trading scheme.
...

... temperatures in Australia were likely to rise by up to 5 degrees by 2070 under a high emissions scenario, with a 10 per cent fall in average rainfall, lower stream flows, worsening water security and quality and more cyclones. By 2030, sea levels were likely to rise by about 17 centimetres.

Sound familiar?

If you don't drink recycled water, you'll die.

We didn't.

If you don't pass our global warming legislation, the country will be destroyed.

It won't.

Clearly the message is not working because the warnings are becoming more dire, more threatening - 5% temperature increase, 17cm increase in sea levels in 20 years. Far beyond anything global warming scientists themselves believe and pure science fiction.

As a journalist said on ABC TV yesterday: pure bullsh*t.

And with China still building a couple of coal fired power stations a week, any climate initiative of the Australian government is the environmental equivalent of spitting on a raging bush fire.

Do politicians really think everyone is that stupid?

With all Anna Bligh's problems in Qld and Kevin Rudd needing Qld for an re-election win, perhaps Malcolm Turnbull will call Rudd's ETS double dissolution bluff ...
