Hey, is Bud OK?

I've been trying to find out if he was caught up in the earthquake.

No problems beyond some chipped paint for RRBud, but he is relocating to a less rambunctious state soon.

Speaking of the earth moving under one's feet, and as the truth spoken in DiverseCity has scared you off . . .

 

Former Aussie Deputy PM becomes backbencher, suddenly tells the truth about global warming

 

You’ve probably never heard of Barnaby Joyce, but he has twice been Deputy Prime Minister of Australia, from February 2016 to October 2017 and from December 2017 to February 2018. During both terms, he served as leader of Oz’s National Party, which frequently allies with the country’s biggest conservative party, called the “Liberal Party.”  The National Party was formerly known as “The Country Party,” and represents farmers, grazers, and other rural residents.

Like the United States, Australia is subject to agitation for CO2 emissions reduction in the name of “saving the planet.” As Deputy PM in serving in coalition under the leadership of warmist true believer Malcolm Turnbull, Joyce could not speak his mind for fear of those interests.

Former Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce is now a backbencher and can finally tell the truth about the global warming scare: 

On his Facebook page,  Joyce wrote:

“The very idea that we can stop climate change is barking mad. Climate change is inevitable, as geology has always shown.” These are the views of New Zealand lecturer of geology, David Shelley. A person vastly more competent than me and the flotilla of others telling the kids the world is going to end from global warming.

The central theme of David Shelley’s analysis is that sea levels are rising and have been for thousands of years and will fall during the next ice age which is expected about now, give or take a thousand years. 
When the ice age does arrive temperatures will drop around ten degrees. A warmer

One or both of these people are lying.

Glad Bud is OK.

I know you have no interest in a reply on the issue, so I won't waste my time.

He won't reply.

All he knows how to do is post memes and op eds from conservative blogs.

He has no opinions of his own.

I'm not following properly - your ex-Deputy PM has come out as a serious Climate Skeptic?

Strange you had someone like that almost at the top of your system.

Or was he simply pliable and dark forces got him there?

He was second to Tony Abbott.

A climate change denying, misogynistic, idiot.

You think people elect intelligent, competent leaders?

Justin Trudeau is a rare gift to the world.  Angela Merkel is a force to be reckoned with.  Macron has had no scandals or cockups.

Name three others.
