John Howard is still a climate change disbeliever.

7 06 2007

Why else would he say things like this?:

The world is not going to come to an end tomorrow because of climate change and we shouldn’t imagine for a moment that that is the case

The above is sourced from the ABC online news article – “Climate change an economic challenge, says PM“.

I’m quite sure he thinks of it as an economic challenge when it is mostly an ecologic and moral challenge (Present greed versus the future needs of societies and species).  But more than anything, to Howard, it is largely seen as a political challenge.

We would be well placed to listen to British author (“Heat“), academic and journalist George Monbiot in his article, “Giving up on two degrees“.
