Every time I hear on the news of the cyclones and floods in Queensland I think of the green convoy to the Adani coal mine a few years ago and the reception they received from the Queensland population.
Queenslanders were determined to dig up all the coal they could and either burn it or sell it to other people to burn. In either case the coal would be transformed into carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and would worsen global warming. The Queenslanders regarded that outcome as some form of green hoax and were very antagonistic to the green convoy.
Perhaps they might think again after their experience of the recent cyclones and floods. I wonder what they might have to experience to be convinced that the earth is not flat.
