Robert Manne: Gospel according to Church Gore.

Grass still growing-check, trees still alive-check,Sun still shining-check

Manne the academic, and as with all academics, they are so convinced that all wisdom and knowledge has been installed into their limited thinking brain, assume that they are blessed with the all seeing and all knowing eye of a supreme being. Incapable of erring or making wrong statements or even the odd decision although the odd few have had to eat humble pie over the last few years as their rantings have been exposed for the stupidity and close minded drivel it was. Manne is ofcourse another one of those pie recipients and on the odd occasion, may actual state that someone else got the meaning wrong.
Mann is ofcourse a self invented historian of Australian History, a positions that he undertakes with both eyes shut and tunnel vision sharply tuned. Being a left winger allows and promotes that you know. They can only ever be correct and every else is totally and completely wrong. I wonder what it would take for this academic to wake up before he is tapped on the shoulder and informed that his time is up.

Super genius Robert Manne’s famous brain deals yet again with terrible denialism:

Manne defines “denialists” as “orthodox members of a tightly knit group whose natural disposition is not to think for themselves”.
Yet somehow these drones are easily able to resist the powerful intellects of Manne and his global army of consensus bunnies. It’s a mystery. Maybe they’ll be convinced by the latest from
wild-eyed enviropath Bill McKibben:

The planet does indeed have an enemy – one far more committed to action than governments or individuals. Given this hard math, we need to view the fossil-fuel industry in a new light. It has become a rogue industry, reckless like no other force on Earth. It is Public Enemy Number One to the survival of our planetary civilization …
This industry, and this industry alone, holds the power to change the physics and chemistry of our planet, and they’re planning to use it.
Not to worry, Bill. The fossil fuel industry is opposed by another, even greater power, able to bind communities, liberate demons, challenge authorities and change countries, governments, history, gravity and reality. It’s called acting. McKibben is also unfamiliar with a force that can change streetlamps. We in the extra chromosome community refer to it as fire.
