Climate Change & Alternative Energy

Recommended Posts

Right wing grifter denialist 'do nothing' propaganda funded by the Koch Brothers and other major conservatives. They started by ignoring it, then saying it wasn't man made, and now they're saying we can't do anything about it. And this bloke is part of that. That it was published in The Australian says it all. It's not like the LNP & Nationals will suddenly do what the author suggests and "invest into green energy research". He's been pushing the same lines for 20 years.

Thanks for that link Mack.  It gives me a better understanding of the faults in Lomborg's arguments.  What he said in Canberra this week has fired up some of the internet warriors that grab any "support" they can to push the denier case.
