Liar Morrison

One suspects that
Morrison went to visit the Mango Mussolini in Washington D.C. to get a few
pointers on how to lie to the gullible. Unfortunately, it hasn’t worked out
well for him. Firstly, his speech to a sparsely populated hall at the UN was
symptomatic of how this buffoon and the nation he represents, is perceived
around the world. His speech was replete with lies and half-truths which is
standard practice for the Liberal Party these days, but it has been shown to be
“colossal bullshit” by the Climate Council’s CEO, Amanda McKenzie, in an
obviously frustrated rant1. Morrison stated that “Australia is
taking real action on climate change and we are getting real results”. This is
simply a lie. Australia is not taking real action on climate change and
therefore results are not real. Ever since the repeal of the ‘carbon tax’ our
emissions of greenhouse gases have been climbing consistently2. I
suspect I know why the Climate Council used this terminology; I sometimes use
similar expressions when faced with the drivel spouted by creationists, and
climate change deniers like Morrison use the same techniques as creationists
(Morrison is one of these too), and are similarly scientifically illiterate. It
is a frustrating world when buffoons like Morrison seem to believe their ignorance
is as valuable as climate scientists’ knowledge. Like many of the
scientifically illiterate, he seems to think that science is simply a matter of
opinion, and if you have a different opinion to the thousands of climate
scientists’ conclusions, then it is just as valid as theirs. Nothing could be
further from the truth. Climate scientists base their conclusions on thousands
of research papers and many hundreds of thousands of observations, whereas
those of the deniers tend to be based on wishful thinking. There are three
possible reasons why Morrison, like his government, denies climate change:
Firstly, he simply wishes climate change to be untrue and therefore believes it
cannot be true; secondly, he doesn’t care for the well-being of millions, and
simply believes he will be spared because he is a Christian and will be saved
by his god; or thirdly, he has been bought off like the rest of his party by
donations from big coal, big gas, denialist organisations and billionaire
deniers. The first of these is built upon stupidity and scientific illiteracy;
the second is built upon delusion and gullibility; the third on venality. Any
of these could well lead to the effective destruction of parts of this nation,
and leave great swathes of formerly inhabited and farmed parts of it
