Fancy joining the No Carbon Tax Climate Sceptics?

By johnboy - 18 June 2012 47

Warwick Huges has let us know he’s starting a political party to oppose the Carbon Tax and run carbon sceptical candidates in October.

While we here at RiotACT in no way endorse the No Carbon Tax Climate Sceptics (or any other particular party) we always welcome new players.

I thought it was the RiotACT that made nutters easier to identify!

Well at least it makes the nutters easier to identify.

I can’t see what a ACT party will do about scrapping the Carbon Tax when it is ferderal legislation earmarked to be scrapped anyway.

They may as well just be call the “Climate Sceptics Party”, in which case I doubt they’ll have much luck fortunately.

All scientists worth listening to are sceptics. Outright rejecting something in the face of overwhelming evidence and the consensus of the international scientific community makes you a denialist, not a sceptic.

Calling themselves the “No Carbon Tax Climate Sceptics” is misleading.

+100

Real skeptics (those who accept scientific evidence about how the world works) can be found in organisations like Australian Skeptics and so on. These people are deniers and use exactly the same rhetoric and empty, made up “facts” that holocaust deniers and evolution deniers fool themselves with.

well, they would be able to scrap the 40% reduction target if they were so inclined.

Hang on, I missed it the first time. They’re running in the ACT Elections, carbon tax is federal law, so they’ll be able to do stuff all about it.

I’m a Climate Sceptic, in that I don’t think we have climate. For goodness’ sake, it was called weather when I was a child soldier in His Majesty’s 5th (Irish) Battalion of The King’s (Liverpool Regiment). Back then, we sorted out the …..

Sorry, had a recollection of a previous life. Carry on…

Marching up and down the square.

Their name sounds like they are questioning the existence of this thing called climate altogether. The Weathermen?

The lines about personal freedom and Australian sovereignty being replaced by a world government just proves the level of retardation that must be afflicting the people behind it.

They should just be honest and admit they’re just xenophobe libertarians hiding behind the environmental debate.

And Bill Koutalianos should in particular be honest. He’s not centrist, he’s as partisan conservative as they come. A quick Google search for his name reveals comment after comment on sites, where he in particular attacks someone named James Hansen who he implicates as being part of a worldwide conspiracy.

I hardly find one dry river in 1914 to be an example of “truth in science and logic” that should be influencing political decisions on this matter.

I think the party might need a better name. Can I join No Carbon Tax Climate Sceptics if I’m a “climate sceptic”?
