Sceptics, deniers and plain nutters

A great ABC Four Corners program recently captures some absolute beauties from those nutters in Canberra:

Nick Minchin, Liberal Leader in the Senate: ‘For 10 years the left internationally have been very successful in exploiting peoples’ innate fears about global warming and climate change to achieve their political ends … For the extreme left it provides the opportunity to do what they’ve always wanted to do, to sort of de-industrialise the western world. You know the collapse of communism was a disaster for the left, and the, and really they embraced environmentalism as their new religion … I frankly strongly object to you know, politicians and others trying to terrify 12 year old girls that their planet’s about to melt, you know. I mean really it is appalling some of that that sort of behaviour’.

Cory Bernardi, Liberal Senator: ‘The earth is not actually warming, we have still rainfall falling. We have crops still growing. We can go outside and we won’t cook’.

Barnaby Joyce, National Party MP from Queensland: ‘They [farmers] just see it as this sort of socialist chardonnay rubbish that are dreamt up, that is dreamt up by people who are obviously have no real risk of having to pay for it … They’re going to have bring around this side of this peg, do a figure of eight back round that side of that peg, back through the gate’.

Wilson Tuckey, Liberal MP from Western Australia: ‘Leave me will you, I’m going to the toilet … I’m not talking I said I’m walking to the toilet’.
