Flannery the flim flam man

Former Aussie of the Year, Tim Flannery (if he's the best they can come up with then God help Australia!) says the only way to combat "climate change" is to pump the atmosphere full of so much sulphur it changes the colour of the sky.

Australia's best-known expert on global warming has updated his climate forecast for the world - and it's much worse than he thought just three years ago.

He may be their "best known" proponent of global warming, but if anyone is actually listening to this asshole then we're in trouble.

The gas sulphur could be inserted into the earth's stratosphere to keep out the sun's rays and slow global warming, a process called global dimming.

"It would change the colour of the sky," Prof Flannery told AAP.

Er, yeah - and more besides Tim. I think the change in the colour of the sky would be the least of our problems. Acid rain, anybody? Hello?

We need to be ready to start doing it in perhaps five years time if we fail to achieve what we're trying to achieve."

If you're trying to achieve human extinction then you're probably right, Tim! Jeez, what a fruitcake. Oh, maybe I'm being unfair on Tim as he does admit there are risks .....

He conceded there were risks to global dimming via sulphur.
"The consequences of doing that are unknown."

No shit. So let's see, we can ignore fruitcakes like Tim and enjoy a warmer and more productive world or we could follow his advice, blot out the sun with sulphur and hope it doesn't turn the planet into a rancid desert? I wonder what that would do for "biodiversity"? My vote is for option one (no offence Tim, you deranged moonbat).

If this is what the alarmists have been reduced to in order to maintain their religious zealotry then they are more desperate than even I thought. Meanwhile some 32000 US scientists have signed a petition saying that man is not responsible for climate change and the response of the US government is to say "everyone is entitled to their opinion".

Q WorldNetDaily reports that more than 31,000 U.S. scientists, including 9,000 Ph.D.s, now signed a petition rejecting global warming, the assumption that human production of greenhouse gases is damaging the Earth's climate. My question: What is the White House reaction to these 31,000 U.S. scientists?
MS. PERINO: I would say that everyone is entitled to their opinion. What's your next question? Q That's all?
MS. PERINO: That's all I'm going to say.

The likes of Ms. Perino would rather listen to 2500 highly politicised IPCC "scientists", crazed loons like Flannery or failed Presidential candidates like Gore with a huge self-interest in the unproven and highly contestable theory of anthropogenic global warming than listen to 32000 scientists from her own nation. So much for consensus science!

Is he serious...!?!

Or does he have a white Persian cat and an undersea volcano hideout?
