I know there’s probably not too many ACT voters here, but ffs, Rodney’s latest speech on climate change could have been written by the nutters. It’s like looking into a parallel world, where words don’t mean what you or I might think they mean:
“ACT’s commitment to freedom commits us to something else too – something vitally missing from our politics at the present time – reason. Side-by-side with freedom stands reason – our human ability to think, to discover, to know, and to grow our knowledge by testing our ideas against logic and experience makes freedom possible.”
“I remain sceptical that greenhouse gases are the cause of a global warming.”
“A warmer climate with more CO2 in the atmosphere is an unambiguous benefit to New Zealand and to the world.”
“All official measures of global temperature show that temperature peaked in 1998 and has been declining since at least 2002”
Not surprisingly, I don’t think I’ve ever seen him at any of the scientific talks that the Royal Society has organised at Parliament.
