Jump in and have fun, but do keep it civil and refrain from personal insults.

    Channel seven this morning had a discussion about the NSW bushfires, it featured a video from the RFS firefighters urging action on climate change after the disastrous Victorian fires,

    Greg Hunt was invited to attend but had stated ” I do not wish to talk about it”

    would have been good if he had turned up and was shown the Wiki article he quoted and the warnings therein.

    He apparently accepts the connect between climate change and increasing bushfires but denies the link in the current NSW fires

    • Nick says:

      No, the climate link is made and referenced there.

      Of course the problem is that he ignored the question as asked, and came across like somebody obfuscating on a blog. Or Bob Carter.

      Imposing, or attempting to impose, a parallel reality. These chumps have got to realise that,while they are in opposition to reality,they are not in Opposition any more.
