Aunty ABC Claims Durban Success

In an effort to out-do the BBC in the Climate propaganda stakes ABC headlines on Durban loudly claims
" Climate Deal clears Major Hurdle" and then says that Durban has agreed on a pact to "force" biggest polluters to take action. The ABC obviously attended a different conference to everyone else or alternatively got their news direct from the Beeb.

UN climate change talks have agreed on a pact that for the first time would force all the biggest polluters to take action to slow the pace of global warming.The deal follows years of failed attempts to impose legally binding, international cuts on emerging giants, such as China and India.
What really happened is everyone agreed to keep talking and do nothing but that would not suit the ABC warmists. As major countries disagree on large parts of the proposals and with public opinion eroding fast the chances of an agreement are extremely remote.
The key component of the platform includes all countries negotiating "an agreed outcome with legal force" by 2015 to start cutting emissions by 2020.
It's a platform to continue debating the details of an agreement where countries disagree on most of the substantive matters.
The negotiations for other countries to sign an agreement to engage in climate-based economic hardship, as Australia has through its carbon tax, are all uphill from here.


  1. Don't forget that you can download the 74 page book in PDF form, "The BBC and Climate Change: A Triple Betrayal" by Christopher Booker by following this link...


    There are some who say that our ABC is even more (ho ho) impartial than the BBC when it comes to reporting the facts about the climate.

  2. I just read it and it's very enlightening. Probably a lot of it would be applicable to the ABC in Australia, especially regarding the mindset of the whole organisation which is deliberately blind to views which conflict with it.

  3. From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandwagon_effect ...

    "The bandwagon effect is a well documented form of groupthink in behavioral science and has many applications. The general rule is that conduct or beliefs spread among people, as fads and trends clearly do, with "the probability of any individual adopting it increasing with the proportion who have already done so". As more people come to believe in something, others also "hop on the bandwagon" regardless of the underlying evidence. The tendency to follow the actions or beliefs of others can occur because individuals directly prefer to conform, or because individuals derive information from others."

    History is going to show that this silly AGW mass hysteria was a classic example of the Bandwagon Effect, and how the ABC and BBC were recklessly instrumental in maintaining the baseless panic by suppressing the masses of evidence that the 'experts' were clueless.

  4. We can only hope that one day soon, the media in general will finally wake up and realise that the AGW alarmists have been taking them for a ride and using them for free publicity to further their utterly dishonest self-serving cause, for many years.

    Maybe then they'll turn around and give the lying alarmists the same contemptuous medicine they've been conned into giving real scientists and others who question the AGW religion.

    That payback can't happen too soon for me and millions of others.
