Buyer’s remorse

Written by  The Hound

Your old mate reckons the lefty types have had a bad couple of weeks.

Not only are they now facing the prospect of Judith ‘Crusher’ Collins ousting their heroine from the Beehive in September, but they’ve also had to contend with news that their fervent belief about climate change is destroying the planet – may well have been over-cooked.

This revelation came in a written apology by long-time and highly respected, US-based, environment campaigner Michael Shellenberger earlier this month.

“On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologise for the climate scare we created over the past 30 years,” he wrote in his 1700-word article.

Apparently, Shellenberger’s “apology for the climate scare” has unsettled many environmental activists as their ‘chicken little’ approach to climate change debate has been seriously questioned.

Meanwhile, this old mutt is not overly upset.
