Andrew BoltÂ â€“ Sunday, August 02, 09Â
This astonishing claim, reported as fact, appears in today’sÂ Sunday Age:
THE Federal Government has warned that Australian icons such as the Great Barrier Reef, Kakadu National Park, the Tasmanian wilderness, Carlton Gardens and the Sydney Opera House could be damaged irreparablyÂ if the Coalition fails to support Labor’s emissions trading scheme.
Can anyone at all, even Climate Change Minister Penny Wong, claim hand on heart that this is literally true – that if the Coalition votes against Kevin Rudd’s scheme that the reef will die and the Sydney Opera House will fall into ruin?
This kind of utter nonsense is now what governments argue and newspapers print about global warming.
Enough with these lies.
The Herald Sun prints the same #@*%
THE Royal Exhibition Building, the Sydney Opera House and the Great Barrier Reef could be wiped off the map if runaway climate change is left unchecked, a new Federal Government report claims.
