wow, just wow! We see less than 10 seconds of the Australian PM offering such an, apparently, extraordinary statement... where the video extract has her saying nothing more than, "and it would also see the Great Barrier Reef threatened by increasing ocean temperature and acidification".
Really ? I didn't understand that from the video.
of course, the verbal extract came from a full press conference, where PM Gilliard brought notice that the Australian government has accepted the consensus science of today concerning mankind's affect on climate change, that there is a need for putting public attention on facts, figures and science, that with the government having accepted the word of scientists and their research, given the Australian economy of the day, the government is even more determined to act... on carbon pricing. As she said in closing, "the facts are clear, the science is in... we must move to address carbon pollution by putting a price on carbon."
so... Michael... if Gilliard's full press conference had been shown rather than the actual shlock video, do you think there would have been more... even more... gnashing of teeth and wailing from the MLW usual suspects?
