First, you Aussies oughtta be ashamed of yerselfs. Yes, I’m looking at you, Cats. And others of your unworshipful ilk. Just look at this headline from Eric Worall’s posting yesterday at WUWT, then go read the piece, and tell me how you guys can avoid hanging your heads in shame. The WO-O-ORRLLLD is coming to an end, and all you can think of is to put up some climate-denier babe to take over the Senate. The very idea!

Greens are panicking in Australia in the wake of the recent cliffhanger Federal Election, as the likelihood grows that climate skeptic Pauline Hanson, who has repeatedly demanded a Royal Commission into Climate Change, will control the balance of power in the new Australian Senate.
“Australia Is Being Swamped By Climate Change Deniers”
With Pauline Hanson looking certain to return to parliament, there’s never been a worse time to be the Great Barrier Reef, writes Liz Conor.
“Fellow Austraiyans. If you are reading me now it means that I have become murderous.
“Murderously, apoplectically incensed.
“Pauline Hanson appears to have picked up a spot in our Senate at the time of writing, possibly even two or more. She will represent Queensland….” [snip]
But I have friends in the UK, not just in Oz, and I don’t want you Brits to feel left out, nor to think that your misdeeds will go unmarked and unchastised. For from Anthony W. his own self, we have this piece explaining that if some tiny bit of Gaia survives the predations of the Aussies against her, you folks will certainly make sure that the rest of our poor, dear planet goes out of existence instanter. Brexit! For shame. For SHAME!!!

Britain & Germany May Delay Coal Phase-Out
The financial uncertainty triggered by the UK’s vote to leave the EU has sent shudders through virtually every industry, but Europe’s renewable energy sector faces even greater insecurity. The successful Leave campaign was led by several political figures opposed to tackling climate change by replacing fossil fuel power stations with wind farms and other sources of renewable energy. The campaign’s strategy committee included Lord [Nigel] Lawson, founder of the Global Warming Policy Foundation think-tank which says the science of climate change is “not yet settled”. –Pilita Clark, Financial Times, 4 July 2016
Britain’s decision to leave the European Union frees up the nation to set environmental rules independent of the other 27-nations in the bloc, raising the risk for renewable energy developers that restrictions will be loosened on coal power. –Jessica Shankleman, Bloomberg, 5 July 2016
