Re Climate change & Bob Brown
There are trillions of tons of methane locked in the Arctic permafrost, a massive bog frozen for millennia. Now buildings are falling as it melts and releases this deadly green house gas.
Methane is a lethal planet-warmer, far worse than carbon dioxide. Burning of fossil fuels has almost produced an irreversible feedback loop, with more artic melting,
more methane, more warming, more melting, and then spiralling into uncharted territory.
Katrina was a disaster? We've seen nothing yet. We're staring into the face of extinction. Yet the coal industry puppets we call politicians scream about Bob Brown "Losing the plot." Excuse me, he's the only one that hasn't. The other mad mob reject vital growth of wind and solar because it doesn't fatten the usual suspects. And jobs? Give me a break. The same clowns have exported thousands of them, and bank on Aussies being too stupid to know huge investment in renewables
will create all the clean, safe employment we need.
