All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

Arthur Schopenhauer

2013 – Emissions Trading Scheme

Just ask yourself what an emissions trading scheme is all about. It’s a market, a so-called market, in the non-delivery of an invisible substance to no one. – Tony Abbott

2017 – Coal

This is coal. Don’t be afraid, don’t be scared – Treasurer Scott Morrison

2019 (April) – Fire Chiefs Warn of Climate Threat

It’s just frustrating to hear the lip service being given to ‘Oh yes, we now believe in climate change and need to do something’ when every effort to do something about it is rubbished. – Greg Mullins, the second-longest serving fire and rescue commissioner in New South Wales and now a councillor with the Climate Council.

2019 (Sept) – United Nations

I want children growing up in Australia to feel positive about their future, and I think it is important we give them that confidence that they will not only have a wonderful country and pristine environment to live in, that they will also have an economy to live in as well.

I don’t want our children to have anxieties about these issues.

-Prime Minister Scott Morrison in response to Greta Thunberg

2020 – Summer Bushfires

We want to reduce emissions and do the best job we possibly can and get better and better and better at it. – Prime Minister Scott Morrison

I await our Parliamentarians sharing their wisdom with us, pointing out the self-evident challenges of climate change.
