It’s just a bunch of quotes.
Climate change gives us drought and flooding rains. Just getting warmed up.Posted by stackja1945 on 2007 12 22 at 08:54 AM • permalink
#5 Tim’s a great writer, Killaette. There’s no denying that.
On the plus side, it wasn’t supposed to be us that felt like idiots after reading it. I suspect the idea was that those who completely agree with it are idiots, and those of us who disagree with most or all of it, have a great sense of humour.
Tim continues to be sneaky.
OT: Our dear Blairite men, DO NOT take chances!!!
“This is yet another sign of the widespread climate change that we are seeing unfold across the globe.” – meteorologist Matt Pearce, following Australia’s warmest May on record. The next month was the coldest June since 1950.
I am still finding distressed plants in my garden affected by last winter’s frosts. The top half of the mango tree turned brown and is now gone. The bird of paradise had its tips singed and looks funny but has survived. All tips of the frangipani tree have been damaged and new growth has sprouted from lower down the branches. This is the first time in its twenty three years that the frangipani has been affected in this way. It is climate change but not the way Matt Pearce imagines.
Tim, Peter has a point. He is comparing himself to his boss Kevni and to fellow parliamentarian Malcolm Turnbull.
Crossie, methinks that Garrett is comparing himself to his religious icon, The Goreacle™. Garrett is indeed a man of modest means compared to Him™.Posted by The_Real_JeffS on 2007 12 22 at 01:24 PM • permalink
Re #7, thanks for the warning, Ash. I’ll be sure to stay out of Wyoming this Christmas season. ;-pPosted by The_Real_JeffS on 2007 12 22 at 01:26 PM • permalink
- “I’m a man of moderate means.” – Peter Garrett, worth around $15 million
Or maybe he got the words ‘means’ and ‘abilities’ confused, Crossie?Posted by andycanuck on 2007 12 22 at 04:43 PM • permalink
“I can’t understand why there aren’t rings of young people blocking bulldozers and preventing them from constructing coal-fired power plants.” – Al Gore.
Just another thing Al doesn’t understand
Maybe all the Chinese young people saw a film of what happened to their anti-tank buddies at Tianenman Square, Al dear? They have plenty of scope otherwise in China, where a new coal-fired power plant is opened every week…
- France at its most consistent:
Adjoining items from The Australian today.French don’t care about Sarkozy’s romance
8:12am NEARLY nine out of 10 French believe a budding romance between President Nicolas Sarkozy and ex-supermodel Carla Bruni is a “private affair”, a poll has found.
Miss France dethroned over sexy photos
7:08am THE president of the Miss France beauty pageant has demanded the winner of the 2008 competition hand back her crown after a magazine published suggestive photographs of the 22-year old model.
It was an excellent choice of quotes Tim.
The illustration was a very nice touch. Was it done by the same team who did “Hello Whaley”?
