Green Left, devastated …

Green Senators and their Media enablers are devastated. The new CSIRO head has likened the politics of ‘climate change’ to a religion.

Senator Rachel Siewert and ABC News shared a link.
The CSIRO’s chief says the backlash from his decision to restructure the…

So disappointing to see the manner in which CEO of CSIRO justifying cuts.

I have been telling them that for years, along with many scientists. Global warming is a Green religious agenda (The Greenies have since got to him: “CSIRO chief Larry Marshall has apologised for describing the emotion of the climate debate as almost “more religion than science”. At Senate estimates this afternoon he backed away from those comments.”)

The ‘hunt is on’ against Hunt, too, Australia’s Environment Minister, by the Green Media, devastated:

Don’t blame us! Suddenly nobody wants to take credit for giving Greg Hunt the “best minister in the world” award.

Confusion surrounds the process by which Australia’s environment minister was crowned the world’s No 1, with the news agency denying it designed the scheme|By Lenore Taylor

Check out the bile in those comments, oh, except my own:

Tom Harley Hunt approved more rehabilitation projects than all the last 5 Labor Ministers put together. Just approved a large number in the Kimberley.

First time in decades!

Ronnie James Of course Murdoch is behind this. The whole thing is laughable. The worst environmental minister, in the worst Federal Government this country has ever had, trying everything to destroy our most pristine Great Barrier Reef, our forests, and our farmland.. If I were Hunt, I would be embarrassed to accept such an award. This whole award thing has been create by Murdoch to try to boost election votes. Ridiculous!!!!

Paul RoocroftSeriously? This award could only be something Hunt’s mum made up. Smells very shonky. How can an inept and incompetent MORON, who openly admitted that he gets his environmental data from Wikipedia, be rewarded with an award of best minister in the world? They’re having a laugh. He’s a freaking JOKE!!

Like I said, devastating, hehe. I keep telling them, self-projection is a disease of the Left.

Their Nemesis Andrew Bolt adds:

An important truth dawns on CSIRO chief Larry Marshall after staff and activists revolt against his planned switch from researching global warming to figuring out how to cope with it:

“I guess I had the realisation that the climate lobby is perhaps more powerful than the energy lobby was back in the ‘70s – and the politics of climate I think there’s a lot of emotion in this debate.

“In fact it almost sounds more like religion than science to me.”

True. but what conclusions do we then draw about his global warming scientists? Does a religious commitment to global warming make them less likely to accept or announce findings that cast doubt on their creed?

Marshall should go further and discuss how a “religious” belief in global warming theory conflicts with a scientist’s need to be objective.  With examples would be nice.

About Tom Harley

Amateur ecologist and horticulturalist and CEO of Kimberley Environmental Horticulture Inc. (Tom Harley) Kimberley Environmental Horticulture Incorporated Kimberley Environmental Horticulture (KEH) is a small group of committed individuals who promote the use of indigenous plants for the landscaping of parks and gardens. Rehabilitation of Kimberley coast, bushland and pastoral regions are also high on our agenda. This includes planting seedlings, weed control, damage from erosion or any other environmental matter that comes to our attention. We come from all walks of life, from Professionals and Trades oriented occupations, Pensioners and Students, Public Servants and the Unemployed. We have a community plant nursery where we trial many old and new species, with a view to incorporating these into our landscaping trials. Our labour force are mainly volunteers, but with considerable help from the 'work for the dole' program, Indigenous Community Development Employment Program (CDEP) groups and the Ministry of Justice, with their community work orders; in this way we manage to train many people in the horticultural skills needed for indigenous plant growing. We constantly undertake field trips that cover seed and plant collection in the Kimberley. Networking around the Kimberley region and the east Pilbara is a necessary part of promoting our activities. We consult on a range of Environmental and Landscaping matters that deal with our region. Our activities involve improving Broome's residential streetscapes by including 'waterwise' priciples in planting out nature strips. Sustainable environmental horticulture is practised by members of our group. We use existing vegetation as the backbone of any plantings, using these species to advantage when planning to develop tree forms or orchards. The Broome region is sensitive to development. Subsequently many weed species have become dominant in and around developed areas. The use and movement of heavy machinery is the biggest single cause of environmental degradation. We dont live in a 'Tropical Paradise' but on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert. The plants that survive best here, grow in well-drained pindan sand, and are found from the Dampier Peninsular southward to where average rainfall is below 600mm. When we use rainforest species, detail is important when planting, water catchment, sunlight and understorey species are all considered. The use of recycled 'grey' water is an advantage here as well as treated waste-water, although many local species do not fare well with nutrients from this source. We use waterwise planting methods which include harvesting asmuch rainwater as possible, with swales designed to hold up to 200 litres, to help recharge the local groundwater aquifer. There has been a serious decline in this aquifer over the last few years. With the fast expansion of the Broome peninsular, more and more land is being covered by concrete, iron and bitumen so that much less water is available to replenish the aquifer, allowing the salt content to become significantly higher. The small Broome Peninsular is on the south-western corner of the Dampier Peninsular (bound by Broome, Derby and Cape Leveque at the northern tip). Compaction by vehicles also inhibits water retention due to the content of our local pindan sand, hard as concrete in the dry, going to soft and sloppy mud after rain. None of us are botanists, inevitably we have got some names wrong, names changed, or have not gone to sub-species level. If you note a photo or description may be wrong, please e-mail to
