False prophets, such as ‘climatist’ Tim Flannery and his media cohorts, mostly commentators on ‘their’ ABC , Fairfax, The Conversation, Guardian, etc. need to be held to account. Wired, here, is another:
The scientific evidence is now overwhelming that unchecked growth in fossil fuel use throughout the next half-century will produce a global climate catastrophe.
Tim Flannery, interviewed by Wired News, in 2006 (emphasis added): Imagine oil prices twice or three times what they are today.

In other false prophet news, the Green’s Polar Bear icons, are now “as fat as pigs”:
Not enough, you need to send him money as well
Tim Flannery is running late. He’s just landed after 30 hours in the air travelling between his home in Melbourne and London, and he’s realised he needs to…
