“How Good Is The Cricket And Firefighters?”

Well, now that Warner has his century and we’ve passed Pakistan with the loss of only one wicket, we can safely say that all those who attacked Scott Morrison for suggesting that the cricket wouldn’t give all those fighting the fires an enormous boost.

See, forget the fires. So what if you lost your home? We’re leading on the first innings and Smith still has to bat…

I should add at this point that the rumours are not true. I did not meet with Scottie and have a private bet that there was nothing I could write that was more ridiculous than the sort of stuff he can get away with. Such rumours are just ridiculous and, frankly, quite insulting. I’m an intelligent man and I know that nothing in my imagination can match the horror that is our PPRM. (Prime Public Relations Minister)

Anyway, the left should concede that he picked the winner again. Why hang out with losers like Owen, when you can attach yourself to a winning cricket team?

Last week, it’s appropriate to show concern for the victims. The Liberals are more than happy to offer support for victims of tragedy right up until the point of actually doing something. This week we move on and assume that people are suffering compassion fatigue and just want to be told that we’re doing our bit for climate change… Climate change doesn’t have anything to do with bushfires so I don’t know why people keep bringing it up. Just because it’s hotter for longer and we’re in drought, that’s nothing to do with us and it’s all under control because thoughts and prayers were enough.

No, we’re not panicking about the economy either. We’re sticking to our plan which means that we’re intending to deliver our surplus and that’s our plan and we’re sticking to it. And this isn’t the time to panic like Labor did when the GFC hit. Look at the mess that caused. Labor didn’t need to do anything because the GFC didn’t really hit here and we didn’t go into recession and interest rates stayed high but thanks to us, soon the banks will be paying you to take your money somewhere else. In Westpac’s case, they’ll probably pay you not to bank with them because they just can’t afford the fines.

Yes, you can’t vote Labor because they haven’t abandoned plans for their “retirement tax”. There’ll never be a retirement tax under us. As Josh told you earlier in the week, we intend to make you retrain so that you can keep on working and that’ll solve the franking credits problem.

How good is the cricket?

Like what we do at The AIMN?

You’ll like it even more knowing that your donation will help us to keep up the good fight.

    There are four possible scenarios for Morrison’s belief in an invisible friend:
    1- God exists, but doesn’t give a shit
    2- God exists, but has lost control
    3- God exists, and allows things to happen (see
    option 1 above
    4. God MAKES things these things happen
    because he, she or it is a twisted twat.
    The 5th scenario, which is beyond the comprehension of the alopecic fake, is that THERE IS NO GOD.
    That’s my take on it.
    And
    The church that Morrison attends consists exclusively of the avaricious people that Yeshua bar Joseph expelled from his ‘father’s house’.
    ‘This’ , as Norman Gunston would say ‘ I believe’.

    Have you disregarded the praying, Rossleigh???
    I wonder if anyone is game to write trite tripe that scummo et al believe what’s his name and smith were unlucky in south africa but they have served their time and have regained their integrity as modern cricketers.
    Still another ‘praying’ mob are in melb in their thousands and they admit maqn made:
    So, given that point of view, planet-wide disasters caused by human-influenced climate change is maybe a good thing, as it tends to foretell the coming of Jehovah’s paradise on earth.
    Perhaps scummo may concur? If only some labor pollie can ask??

  3. Mr Shevill Mathers

    Morrison must be right at home as a former (failed) advertising man, after all, churches are the biggest advertising agencies on a global scale that advertise an invisible ‘product’-from which the churches & their founders derive enormous profits.

    “I should add at this point that the rumours are not true.”

    We know Rossleigh, you have just been writing the next series of the New Goon Show from your exhalted position as Principal Pubic Relations Adviser to the Prim Monster.

    Plus your insight and imagination have help create the “many forward thinking” polices for which this misgovernment is notorious. Your plan, I mean the plan being promoted by the PR agency, will show the power of prayer as the convincing methodology for bringing Australian voters the improved life style and economy that we all enjoyed before Little Johnnie “Flakjacket” Howard lied his way into too many years misleading the nation.

    The discrepancy between production and reducing fossil fuel emissions clearly has nothing to do with increasing extreme events such as drought and bushfires … in Morrison’s head anyway! Australia is up there in third place in relation to the export of fossil fuels it has been stated.

    Decades ago scientists working for Exxon projected temperature rising taking account of the increase in greenhouse gases, till so far they have been quite accurate. It was created prior to the denier rubbish we now see, being prior to Bush senior becoming President, when climate science became heavily politicised.

    Keith,

    Your last link doesn’t seem to work but these ones do.

    In 1982, Exxon predicted that by about 2060, CO2 levels would reach around 560 parts per million – double the preindustrial level – and that this would push the planet’s average temperatures up by about 2°C over then-current levels (and even more compared to pre-industrial levels).

    1982 Memo to Exxon Management about CO2 Greenhouse Effect

    Later that decade, in 1988, an internal report by Shell projected similar effects but also found that CO2 could double even earlier, by 2030. Privately, these companies did not dispute the links between their products, global warming, and ecological calamity. On the contrary, their research confirmed the connections.

    1988 Shell Confidential Report “The Greenhouse Effect”

    Shell’s assessment foresaw a one-meter sea-level rise, and noted that warming could also fuel disintegration of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, resulting in a worldwide rise in sea level of “five to six meters.”

    Shell’s analysts also warned of the “disappearance of specific ecosystems or habitat destruction,” predicted an increase in “runoff, destructive floods, and inundation of low-lying farmland,” and said that “new sources of freshwater would be required” to compensate for changes in precipitation. Global changes in air temperature would also “drastically change the way people live and work.” All told, Shell concluded, “the changes may be the greatest in recorded history.”

    For its part, Exxon warned of “potentially catastrophic events that must be considered.” Like Shell’s experts, Exxon’s scientists predicted devastating sea-level rise, and warned that the American Midwest and other parts of the world could become desert-like.

    . . . And other parts of the world could become desert-like.

    Are we there yet? Yep, we’re there. All thanks to a conniving bunch of lying bastards and a largely braindead populace. The scum lord, morrison, safe in his delusional bubble, will never hear the revulsion felt by many, the absolute disgust that this fascist fckup and his scum sucking brethren has engendered.

  10. Andrew Smith

    Exxon knew.” Thanks to the work of activists and journalists, those two words have rocked the politics of climate change in recent years, as investigations revealed the extent to which giants like Exxon Mobil and Shell were aware of the danger of rising greenhouse gas emissions even as they undermined the work of scientists.

    But the coal industry knew, too — as early as 1966, a newly unearthed journal shows.

    Think we are seeing the symptoms of a strategy cooked up to both avoid nobbling of fossil fuels e.g. environmental regulation etc., and standard hazards for global companies such as taxes, competition, renewables, informed voters etc.

    Andrew,

    Thanks. I hadn’t seen that.

    From Andrew’s link,

    From 1966…”a passage from James R. Garvey, who was the president of Bituminous Coal Research Inc., a now-defunct coal mining and processing research organization.

    “There is evidence that the amount of carbon dioxide in the earth’s atmosphere is increasing rapidly as a result of the combustion of fossil fuels,” wrote Garvey. “If the future rate of increase continues as it is at the present, it has been predicted that, because the CO2 envelope reduces radiation, the temperature of the earth’s atmosphere will increase and that vast changes in the climates of the earth will result.”

    “Such changes in temperature will cause melting of the polar icecaps, which, in turn, would result in the inundation of many coastal cities, including New York and London,” he continued.

  12. Kaye Lee

    Keith,

    No I hadn’t seen that either. Thanks.

    Another interesting one was this….

    “the first accurate climate model ever: by Syukuro Manabe and Richard T. Wetherald. 50 years after their groundbreaking 1967 paper, the science can be robustly evaluated, and they got almost everything exactly right.

    “According to our estimate, a doubling of the CO2 content in the atmosphere has the effect of raising the temperature of the atmosphere (whose relative humidity is fixed) by about 2 °C.”

    @Mr Shevill Mathers, they do it like McDonalds does. Get em in while they are too young to understand
