Ballina MP Tamara Smith recently appeared on Bay FM Radio and featured in The Echo.
She was railing against endemic federal government inaction on effective climate change policy, which most of us, who are smart enough to ignore the mountain of misinformation by the climate denying industry, have been doing for a decade or more.
Tamara generously proposed we allow the conservatives some space to do a graceful U-turn, and not to continually berate them.
She is being way too generous. Change is coming anyway and there is nothing the climate denialists can do about it. Private enterprise will drive change with or without government assistance.
Do we just compassionately forgive and forget more than 30 years of total belligerence, arrogance and gross stupidity?
These people, being either conned or financed by the fossil fuel industry, have cost Australia, and the entire world, trillions of dollars and put all of our futures at risk.
Bastardry of this magnitude does not deserve forgiveness – we should continue to rub their noses in the lies they have fallaciously perpetrated.
The Greens cannot remove this government, only the Labor Party can do that. Think and act wisely over the next two years.
