I do not understand Abbott’s point that global warming will be beneficial. Doesn’t this contradict all his other points that are based on the premise that climate change isn’t actually happening? I don’t get it. Or is he objecting to just the anthropegenic aspect of GW? But hang on, he refers to figures and data being changed and meddled with to make it look like there is GW, when actually there isn’t any? I’m confused, can anyone paraphrase his logical progression?

I pose that question seriously. Abbott said he believes in speaking his mind but exactly what his problem with climate change science is appears to incorporate a picnic basket of every objection to climate science even if those objections contradict themselves. It just seems so utterly il-conceived I feel as though i’m the problem, i’m missing some vital bit of information to link it all together.

Thats the problem with trying to understand idiots and those who pander to idiots, their ideas are literally stupid so therefore a pain to untangle.

Just addressing the boldy bit: have you considered the possibility he's Trumping, ie, throwing out all the noise he can, as long as it seems to be against the message he opposes.

In air-warfare terms, it's chaff - disposable shiny crud that clouds the picture.

Tactical suicide. The kind of thing they want us to do. Because it doesn't hurt them but they can play it as "imagine if they bombed us for realz".

Ah and here's The Tones peeps, defending the right to free speech since the year dot.....I mean that's what he and the right want us to think, that the violent leftists want to silence the rights, but the message seems a but contradictory;


Quote:
Far-right groups threatening to storm a Melbourne council meeting could face off against anti-racism protesters, who plan to "defend" the councillors who voted to scrap Australia Day ceremonies.

Quote:
When the council convened in September, about eight protesters from the Party for Freedom donned Australian flags and signs, shouted chants and temporarily shut down the meeting.

Quote:
Last Thursday, another far-right group stormed question time at the nearby Moreland City Council.

Quote:
Far-right protester Neil Erikson last week said protesters could attend more council meetings, but added he had no specific plans to attend Tuesday's meeting.

So when they say attend, they mean disrupt and silence, shout them down, interfere with normal discourse and business.


http://www.news.com.au/national/brea...1f2948cab396f0


These are the end results of encouraging far right activism, the right claims they are being silenced, and they will continue to do so while they invade council meetings and disrupt society, repress minorities and discriminate against anyone with different way of living.

I had ABC TV News Breakfast on this morning, and at the time wasn't taking much notice while I was eating, and looked up to see an image of Tony Abbot sucking on a pen, probably in a story about Turnbull's energy "plan".

It looked quite strange, so I Googled it. What I found was the following, and while I expect the vision I saw was more recent than this, I found it amusing (I don't recall having seen the clip on which it's based).
