Utterly devastating. My heart goes out to y’all.

In a just world this would end Morrison’s political career but we’ve arrived at the point in Western democracy where nothing f***ing matters and accountability for shameless c***s like him (and Trump) is non-existent.

Not much else to add :(

Eventually the Chinese will run everything and we’ll live in a green utopia.

Ironically, the NUMBER ONE excuse trotted out by Scotty from Marketing is the old “no point doing anything because China”.

The fact that Australia produces (only) 1.7% of the world’s emissions justifies inaction, apparently. But we have only 0.33% of the world’s population. So, we’re over-emitting five-fold. And that’s before counting the emissions from Australia’s fossil fuel exports.

But for the real kick in the world’s nuts, look into Kyoto carryover credits. Just astonishing that they would use accounting chicanery rather than act in good faith.

Some fun articles if you’re bored and want to get furious:

Examining the former deputy PM’s conspiracy theory that greenies are to blame for the fires:

Examining the Energy & Environment minister’s claim that Australia can “be proud” of its response to climate change:

One last one to about Scotty from Marketing being run out of a fire-ravaged town he visited:

https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/australia-news/2020/jan/02/scott-morrison-abused-by-bushfire-victims-in-nsw-town-of-cobargo

The highlight - a firey refused to shake Morrison’s hand. Scotty says to the firey’s boss later “I’m sure he’s just tired.” “No,no, he’s lost his house.”

uh oh the old white men being oppressed has gone off in the kimbo household, ready the gammonmobile
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Oh for the days when you’d get English people who’d moved there pretending on social media that it being 35 degrees wasn’t horrific.

Actually 35 is a nice summers temp, just right for the pool :lol:

It’s been cold in Perth again this summer, high 20’s

Yeah, that old expression "Only mad dogs and Englishmen out in the midday sun" is a complete crock of s****. I've never known a people so utterly incapable of coping with temperatures above 30 degrees.

(Which means, btw, that you are no longer an Englishman in exile, Mr Mouse, but an Australian ;) )

Have to say I’ve never heard of the song, heard the expression plenty growing up. But Wikipedia tells me you are correct :thup:

Still a crock of s**** ;)

Just about :lol: it’s been 11 years. Although sports wise I’ll never change.

Having said that PERTH is a dry heat, I struggle on the east coast with the humidity

So, in the middle of the worst bushfire crisis in the nation's history, Scotty from Marketing has literally produced and released an ad spruiking his response to the crisis. Tin ear or psychopath - you be the judge

Incredible footage of the DC10 in action.

Shame Scotty from marketing rejected other countries air support.

So, within a week, we’ve had ex-PM Abbott openly climate-change denying on Israeli radio, Craig Kelly eviscerated by Piers f***ing Morgan and “that ignorant weather girl” for denying climate change, and now this.

Not that it will matter a jot.  :rant:
