The Warmists Never Give Up

I was sent the latest missive from Australia's "GetUp" campaigning group today:

Welcome to our "new normal."

Our country is still in the middle of a record-smashing heatwave with temperatures soaring above 40 °C and hundreds of fires blazing out of control around the country. We're being told to "get used to it" but while the nation rallies to fight fires, repair damage and console loved ones we're struggling to have the conversation about our warming planet, let alone get used to it.

The growing mountain of evidence tells a sobering story - a story that needs frequent and urgent repeating if we're to have a chance of preventing the worst of predicted catastrophic climate change.

Do I need to say that I'm less than impressed? First there's the embarrassing fact that even the alarmists admit that Australia's carbon tax, even if it were so extreme as to shut down Australian industry completely, would save at most a few thousandths of a degree by 2050. So what the heck sort of action do they want us to urgently and repeatedly ask for if they have any hope of making a noticeable difference?
