Last year Kevin Rudd claimed global warming was the “great moral challenge of our generation”
But the climate sure has changed since Climategate and the farcical failure in Copenhagen. This year global warming is the scam that Rudd barely dares to mention:
Remember how Malcolm Turnbull last year warned his Liberal Party to pass Rudd’s emissions trading scheme or face a double dissolution election on the issue that would wipe them out? Just months later, climate change is in fact so smelly that Rudd would like it to disappear as an election issue completely. So fast has this faith imploded.
Tim Blair recalls the days when Kevin Rudd hailed the IPCC as a serious, sober arbiter of global warming truth. Let’s see if he dares repeat those claims this year, after the IPCC crashed in the Himalayas.
