Andrew Bolt resists joining the Cult of Green:

Even during these latest warnings that the Great Barrier Reef would die in 20 years and polar bears soon after – wild warnings to coincide with the coming into force of the Kyoto protocol – I couldn’t find faith.

So I thanked The Age, Australia’s most Left-wing daily paper, for launching a crusade to convert sinners like me – pages and pages on global warming, starting on Saturday with a huge graphic: “10 Reasons to Start Worrying Now.” And a headline screaming: “WAKE UP. THIS IS SERIOUS.”

Thereafter follows an entertaining debunking of The Age’s frightmongering; read the whole thing. (Melanie Phillips has more on the global warming scam here.) You know, if The Age is so worried about global warming, what the hell is it doing converting tons and tons of trees into paper, rolling them through massive presses driven by coal-generated electricity, then distributing the end product all over the country in fossil-fuel eating earth-killers? The Age is systematically destroying the planet. I urge protesters to stop them. No profit for eco-rape!

    1. The Age, Australia’s most Leftie paper?
      Not a patch on the Canberra Times, proud successor of the Stalin-era Pravda.

    1. I’ll have to say, I am genuinely still stunned by the massive nature of the Global Warming fraud.

      It rivals Islamofascism in controllist intent.

      Without arguing any further with warming alarmists, who are moronic now until proven otherwise by recanting everything they have said: why has nothing of a positive nature ever been found even possible from warming?

      Then they say they are “scientific” and “non-religious”?

      Mama, bring me my Victory Gin, “hand me down my walking cane”, and my neutron bomb.

    1. It is kinda like the whole end of the world thing. When it does not end..then what?

      Any minute now…still waiting… it is all over….

      Think of all the money spent on this and for what? So that they can jump in planes belching toxic fumes and fly all over the world and demonstrate while they communicate through a decadent technology?

      If these people think cooking on dung fires is such a great way to live, why don’t they go into the wilderness and do it and leave the rest of us the hell alone?

    1. C’mon guys! The SMH has a very vicious Left Jab – or should that be Left Jabber?

    1. Now, now, Tim.  Let’s not be too hasty in unleashing our wrath on the left-wing papers.  Why, without them where would sensible, intelligent, observant, and sarcastically-inclined people get their chuckles?

      There are far better ways to handle this sort of thing.  I suggest a concerted effort to plant a hockey stick firmly up Michael Mann’s derriere while explaining what we think of his scientifically-challenged curve chart.

    1. Honkie, calling the Canberra Times a newspaper is being a bit too polite! I prefer to think of it as a pamphlet.

    1. If polar bears are so threatened, why is Canada still issuing hunting licenses to cull their population?
