The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) have today released a statement in response to former prime minister Tony Abbott suggested climate change is “probably doing good”
The devout Catholic who staunchly defends his own ‘opinions’ regarding catastrophic man-made damages to the environment, gave a speech in his hometown of London, in which he likened policies to combat Climate Change to “primitive people once killing goats to appease the volcano gods” .
While at the ironically titled climate change scepticisim ‘thinktank’ Abbott also told the audience that the ‘talking down’ to those who did not accept climate science was “the spirit of the Inquisition, the thought-police down the ages” –
He also reprised his 2009 assertion that the “so-called settled science of climate change” was “absolute crap” and that hotter temperatures are a good thing if anything, because far more people die in cold snaps.
“At least so far,” he said, “it’s climate change policy that’s doing harm. Climate change itself is probably doing good; or at least, more good than harm.”
The CSIRO, who have spent the last decade tiptoeing greatly around the once most powerful politician in Australia, say that they can no longer allow Australians to be exposed to such a dangerous level on anti-intellectualism.
Larry Marshall, who is CEO of the federal government agency for scientific research in Australia, says that having millions of dollars and jobs gutted from the organisation’s climate science department was bad enough, but for Abbott to then deny any of the world they had done before that was too much.
Larry Marshall: “Mr Abbott, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
Marshall then went on to point out that the rising sea levels are only going to create an influx of refugees from the pacific islands, as well as thousands of more cyclones, bushfires, floods and droughts for the Australian people who don’t live in Sydney’s North Shore.
“Please stop what you are doing”
