What’s in a paragraph?


Eventually civilization may well run out of natural gas and other fossil fuels that are recoverable at a reasonable cost, and may be forced to switch permanently to other sources of energy. These are more likely to be nuclear fission or nuclear fusion than solar or wind power, which will be as weak, diffuse and intermittent a thousand years from now as they are today. But that is a problem for the inhabitants of the world of 2500 or 3000 A.D.


Watching Alan Jones

So the top radio commentator has already been taken to court by Leftists activist group and ALP apparatchiks, GetUp, and now the media watchdog wants to investigate him over his views on climate change and PM Gillard’s mad carbon (dioxide!) tax.

Get real.

As recently as last Tuesday, Jones has had prominent scientists on his show such as Professors Bob Carter, Tim Ball and Richard Lindzen.

Apparently, the watchdog is fine with other celebrities and politicians using inaccurate and deceptive terms such as “carbon pollution” but quoting science is a no-no.

I notice, too, in Bob Beale’s SMH opinion piece (not gonna bother linking), he notes Jones too went down the 0.04% x 5% x 3% x 1.5% road that I did in the post below, before comparing atmospheric human CO2 to a few beers (had Bob had a few?).

Would you believe if I said I dreamt that up myself before hearing that Jones has used it too?

Anyway, what is so wrong with the logic of that, especially when we’re talking about a trace gas that’s essential to most life on the planet?

Regardless, who knows what they’ll dream up next, so let’s have a listen to Jones speak with Bob Carter while we still can.
