The New South Wales Liberals have apparently pushed for the Federal Government to establish a national series of debates on the science of climate change, with the aim of determining whether – you guessed it – it’s all “been settled.”
During a state council gathering over the weekend, the party decided it’d be a splendid idea to pit actual, bona fide researchers from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change against “independent” climate change denialists.
We’re sure that’d be a cordial affair.
Fairfax reports he was actually heckled by his own party because of that stance before the vote. After he vanished – like the polar ice caps, heyooo – the motion to push for the debates passed, with apparently 70 percent of attendees giving it the thumbs up to the traveling roadshow of ignorance disguised as even-handedness.
The concept of the debates being held in Sydney, Melbourne, and elsewhere around our increasingly hot country will now be put towards the World’s Best Minister / environment minister Greg Hunt. The guy who played a big role in nixing the carbon tax in the first place.
