The issue of climate change in Australian politics is often akin to beating your head against a brick wall (see here, here and here for prime examples). Having said that, nothing beats the American political system when it comes to sheer willful ignorance. Prime example? Sarah Palin’s Twitter account. Honestly, you can’t make this stuff up:
Earth saw clmate chnge4 ions;will cont 2 c chnges.R duty2responsbly devlop resorces4humankind/not pollute&destroy;but cant alter naturl chng
Copenhgen=arrogance of man2think we can change nature’s ways.MUST b good stewards of God’s earth,but arrogant&naive2say man overpwers nature
Excuse me, but Sarah is NOT part of our political system. She is an unemployed civilian. (for now).
Obama beat McCain by 52 percent to 46 percent…
Yeah, come on, John, she’s all yours. On the other hand, speaking of 7 year old children, we do have Steve Fielding ….
No, she does NOT have the intellect of an 8 year old child. I have had eight year olds on my forum. It is a heavy insult to compare them to this, no joke.
I agree w Slicer. I have an 8 year old and had the same thought. My 8 yr old is pretty smart, spells better and reads more than me, and certainly doesn’t spout dopey nonsense about humans not being able to alter the planet.
Fair point. Sorry slasher – but John, as David pointed out, she’s still one of yours…
