News Weekly's stand on global-warming (letter)by P.C. WilsonNews Weekly
, April 12, 2008
Judging by a recent article by Christopher Pearson in The Australian
(March 22, 2008), more and more commentators are starting to call this global-warming garbage for what it is.
But, to its eternal credit, News Weekly
, to my knowledge, has been one of the first serious journals to take a rational stand against the current hysteria and attempt to stem the tide.
I am concerned about the effect the global-warming fraud will have on the Australian economy, now that Professor Ross Garnaut is telling us it will cost a great deal more than hitherto thought.
In view of the "nine significant errors" found in Al Gore's Hollywood epic, An Inconvenient Truth
, we are entitled to ask, with Pontius Pilate, "What is truth?"
However, if the doomsayers chant "climate change" long enough - and attribute it to any
change in the weather - ultimately the scare campaign becomes the "authorised version".
It reminds one of the central character in John O'Brien's classic poem on the drought:And so around the chorus ran
"It's keepin' dry, no doubt."
"We'll all be rooned," said Hanrahan,
"Before the year is out."
It will be a long haul: don't give up.P.C. Wilson,
