"It’s not entirely Scott Morrison’s fault that he managed to look like a
dissembling idiot at President Joe Biden’s leader’s summit on climate change
He probably hasn’t read a word of the science about global warming and the grim
future that awaits his children and grandchildren.
That’s not an excuse, but it tells us the scientists and bureaucrats who advise
him and other politicians have been falling down badly on their jobs.
Those people who actually know what’s going on have allowed themselves to be
intimidated by Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch and their bullies, who in turn have
been collaborators in the crime of the century.
That the fossil fuel industry managed to turn global warming into a political
issue – Left saying it’s happening, Right saying it’s not – might have been
tactically brilliant, but it was also a vast global crime.
A looming catastrophe verified by scientists was turned into just another
political debate to protect the profits of oil, gas and coal companies.
And, as everyone knows, there’s no better way to put a stop to something than
to send it to a committee.
The Murdochs were enthusiastic accessories to the crime."
