Carbon Cate & Looney Tune Tony

Posted: May 31, 2011 in Dummy Spits, Politics

Poor old Cate Blanchett, if you stick your neck out, your head gets chopped off.

What a greedy bitch, it’s all about protecting her planet for her kids. The hide of an elephant…
Dammit, if future generations of Wicks’s want to watch TV’s the size of a football field, have the doors open with the air conditioner on Max just to get a breeze, and drive around in supercharged V36 trucks that chew a gallon of fuel a metre, and to keep their drink of Dolphins Blood cool by breaking an ice cap off Greenland, then so be it…

The Coaliton are right this time, what the bloody right does she have to talk about a price on carbon, she’s a bloody millionaire for christ’s sake…. and she is in no way any form of climate scientist. We should instead be listening to the decent, ordinary Australians that the coalition keeps quoting, people who will feel the pinch at the grocery store each week. People like Marius Cloppers, CEO of BHP Billiton, or David Peever, CEO of Rio Tinto, or maybe even Paul O’Malley, CEO of Bluescope Steel.

Mr O’Malley was even good enough to front up to the Carbon Rally outside Parliament house, although he was lucky enough to not be photographed in front of any of those pesky sexist banners and signs that seemed to follow Tony Abbott around.

As George Brandis said on Q & A last night, these CEO’s are directly impacted by decisions made on Carbon emissions, therefore their opinions are valid.

I am assuming then, that George thinks Cate Blanchett is from a different planet, and somehow Cate’s planet will be affected differently by global warming.

But anyway, when it comes to celebrities, it was always going to be hard to top the Coalition. They managed to have a current worldwide celebrity, who is a climate scientist, as a speaker at the Carbon Rally in Canberra. His name is Angry Anderson.

It is truly ridiculous that people want to condemn people for donating their time to a cause that they are passionate about.

As far as I’m aware, Cate has never been raped, does that mean she should stop donating money and time to supporting Rape Crisis Centres? I believe she has never been subjected to torture, but still she persists in supporting human rights causes.

To put it bluntly, Cate is a saint, we should all be proud, not just of her achievements, but also of the way she conducts herself, and her selfless support for worthy causes.

Of course this is not the first time a rich celebrity has stuck their neck out for environmental issues. Leonardo Di Caprio made a documentary on Global Warming, he narrated it, and funded it. It is called The 11th Hour and below is a link to the trailer:

Another rather rich celebrity, not to mention high profile politician, who kicked up a bit of a fuss about global warming was Al Gore, you may remember him, Democrat Vice President of USA. He also made a documentary movie called An Inconvenient Truth, and a link to its trailer is below:

Anyway, neither Di Caprio, or Gore, received the right royal News Ltd treatment that Cate is receiving. We don’t like tall poppies in Australia, and if their point of view conflicts with the coalition of sceptics in our government, you can be sure News Ltd will put it on the front page of your Sunday paper.

In the meantime, we can continue to watch the circus, as the coalition clowns roll out and try to argue logic with climate scientists.

As an afterthought, it is beyond me how a supposedly educated man, like Abbott claims to be, can believe in a bearded man that sits up in the clouds controlling everything on earth, creating species, then wiping them out with earthquakes and other natural disasters, but yet can’t believe what is in front of his face, and what the vast majority of qualified scientists all agree on. Global warming is a reality.

    Ummmm, Al Gore was not a Republican VP. He was a DEMOCRAT VP. Better correct yourself.

    Thanks for that, more coffee needed.
    All corrected now…
    Cheers 🙂
