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