We were Aussies mate —-
NOT YANKS!


PHILIP BOWRING writing in the
New York Times (Op-Ed) December 27th 2009

Wants to see the United States lead the way in regards to Climate Change and emissions reduction – so that we Aussies will follow suit, because he states, we are accustomed to, and (often) rely upon America for Leadership!

Yet if the United States was seen to be taking a lead on facing climate change, there is almost no doubt that rich countries like Australia, which are accustomed to and often rely upon American leadership, would fall into line very quickly while poorer ones would gradually follow. The Copenhagen conference showed that no amount of good example from Europe and Japan in setting emission and energy reduction targets made much of an impact. The fact is that, on this issue, the United States is currently incapable of offering the political leadership that would shame other nations into greater efforts and enable America’s technological prowess to be fully harnessed to emission-reduction goals.

You know the last time I checked we had not sworn fealty to the Flag of The United States of America. We were even discussing the possibility of severing ties and apron strings with Her Royal Britannic Majesty, and standing tall and erect on our Own Soil under Our own Southern Cross.

Why should we want to follow the lead of the USA which currently has it’s own internal problems which don’t exactly help it to shine in world leadership.

Australians are quite capable of working things through, deciding on a direction and then following it to the logical end. It is my sincere hope that as the Christmas holidays draw to a close, our elected and much admired politicians, will seek for answers. Will examine closely the facts regarding the THEORY of Man Made Global Warming (AGW); will seek conversations with the scientists on both sides of this discussion, and then discuss their findings openly with the Australian People BEFORE deciding what action to take.

We do not need to play ‘follow the leader’ and bow down before other nations, we are not tied to the Apron Strings of the United States or any other Global Entity, nor should we ever be found in that situation. We have legitimate Sovereignty, freedoms and opinions of our own. The future of Australia should be decided by the people of Australia.

In case you have not noticed, the Australian Liberal Party has stood firm in its arguments against an Emissions Trading Scheme. Let’s pray they will take the opportunity to research what the (so called) climate skeptics have to say, and find truth to deal with this entire issue. As I said yesterday, I find it very hard to believe 39,000 plus scientists to be wrong.

Phillip I don’t agree with you at all. I am not certain of your nationality, but if you profess to be an Aussie then perhaps you should surrender your passport, and go stand in all that lovely white stuff, covering the USA currently due to Global Warming. We in Australia are used to many and varied weather patterns, they are not something new and not caused by AGW!

Till next time, stay safe, get your snow shovels out and keep the kettle on the boil. OH yes, please remember to Pray for your Politicians and people of the Press.

Just one last question. Was AGW around in the early 1900’s?

I love a sunburnt country
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of drought and flooding rains,
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel sea,
Her beauty and her terror –
The wide brown land for me.

    >I agree with you Just me in T. As an American, first of all, I think that other countries should take the lead or make decisions on their own. We are often tired of being "responsible" for the rest of the world's decisions just to get blamed for them later. Every country is different and has to take into consideration its own people and their needs. I like the blog…you have some great articles here.
