 Turnbull on climate: why would any sensible person listen?

27.02.20. It truly does beggar belief that the Australian, or any self-respecting media would waste their time and credibility interviewing Malcolm Turnbull, a man that most Australians agree was the worst prime minister ever. Turnbull is pushing for zero net emissions by 2050. The Waffler would be 95 were he to live to see that achieved and the accompanying economic devastation. Given his zeal for action might have people wondering if his family has considerable investment in renewable energy? The Video below exposes both Turnbull and that bloody mincing poodle Christopher Pyne piddling in each others pockets. Their banter is pathetic and illustrates, now in hindsight, what utter nincompoops we foolishly elected—now that the damage is there for all to see. Pyne’s French submarines says it all! And as for Turnbull, well… anyone got a good word for that worm?

Climate policy: Malcolm Turnbull attacks Coalition for opposing a zero net emissions target by 2050

Former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull has lashed out at Coalition opposition to a zero net emissions target by 2050, saying the consequences are “catastrophic” without one.
Scott Morrison’s predecessor has continued to ramp up his criticism of his old party’s energy and climate change policies since the summer bushfire crisis, in which Mr Turnbull has frequently attacked the Prime Minister directly.
Mr Turnbull told a meeting of energy business executives in Sydney on Tuesday that opposition to a zero net target was misleading and false.
“We’ve got to stop this false debate, this misleading debate about whether getting to net zero emissions by 2050 … is something that’s optional,” he said in Sydney on Tuesday.
“Well, I suppose it is optional but it’s an option you don’t want to miss because if we do miss it we know what the consequences are.
“The fires of this last summer will seem like a very, very mild experience compared to what a 3 degrees Celsius (warmer) world will look like.”
Mr Morrison has resisted adopting a zero net emissions target ahead of the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow at the end of the year.
In the Labor Party, right-wing MPs, including opposition agriculture spokesman Joel Fitzgibbon and his closest allies, publicly backed Anthony Albanese’s adoption of a zero net emissions target despite their private reservations over the timing of the announcement.
Mr Turnbull reportedly did not directly reference Mr Morrison or Mr Albanese in his Tuesday speech, but said without the zero net target the outcome would “unthinkable, catastrophic, apocalyptic.”
“This challenge is real. The objective of net zero emissions by 2050 is not a ‘nice to have’ or an ‘interesting’ target, a ‘would be nice to do if we can’ or ‘if we can afford it’,’’ he said.
“The alternative is unthinkable — apparently except in the bubble down to the south of us in Canberra.”

    What do you mean he’s “on track to be the worst”??
    He’s the best dickhead one could have. He was & is the best dickhead since the day he was given a position in the party by Howard.
    Australia’s own Coronavirus…… he should be permanently quarantined firstly by throwing him out of the LNP & secondly by cutting off his oxygen by never allowing him to be quoted or interviewed by the media, not even the GayBC.

      I’m thinking that the reason he has not been kicked from the party is that there are too many Libs that piss in their beds {commonly called bedwetters, whatever that means}.
      Hearing the name turnbull or seeing his image nearly makes me want to strangle the cat, but hey I don’t have a cat!

      Sometime in the last few days I heard the tail end of an interview where the supposedly experienced and qualified speaker was heaping extreme scorn on Shitheads pet project namely Snowy 2. I never never had any respect for this silly project at all and this interview really made my day. The guy covered most aspects of the project that was very suspect and, bugger me, why does the project still continue to waste taxpayers money on what is going to be an abject failure????

    Follow the money! If we follow MBT it will lead us to windmills and solar investments!
    Story: Turnbull: Stop this false debate

    REJECTED (twice) by The Australian adjudicator so I reworded it by removing Turnbull by name. It still met the same fate! Too sensitive! Or cowardly?

      And after reading about Mansion Inc investments read carefully the business plan for renewables investment, US wind business now an Australian wind business.

      Consider the working life of wind turbines, average 20 years before replacement. So based on the false premise that CO2 is bad and that natural climate change is in fact man made global warming, convince governments, here Federal to create Renewable Energy Target and States to approve the development applications and handicap power stations burning coal, the most important baseload generators, and establish profiteering businesses that in a truly free market capitalist system would not succeed.

      Add value to investment via ever rising electricity pricing and maybe an emissions trading scheme icing on the cake. Electric vehicles next, they’re working on it and our governments are reacting to the pressure. Another wealth creation scheme.

      Business Plan: Establish wind farms, push electricity prices up, attract investors, plan exit strategy before the assets become liabilities, but only for those in the know.

      In between time force coal owners to sell because of the market turning to renewables and when the time is right offer to build coal fired power stations?

        Another part of the tricks, keep quoting “Installed”, installed capacity is nameplate capacity which is the engineering design maximum output possible. But in reality wind and solar depend on the wind and Sun so are unreliable, intermittent sources of energy.

        The AEMO rates them with Capacity Factor averaging 30% of Installed for wind and less for solar. Power stations operate continuously and with deterioration as they age accepted, on average 95% Capacity Factor. And they have an accountable operating life of 50 years, but with maintenance could continue for 80 or more years.

        The trick to fool the public that renewable is the future: they quote only Installed Capacity – the new XXXXX wind farm can produce 100 MW, but Capacity Factor is 30 MW.

        SA has 50% renewables, installed, but capacity 15%.

        Totally agree DT. Diesels by comparison can operate continuously at 100% and even at 110% for short periods, but achieve optimum thermal efficiency at about 80% of full load

    “It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing”.

    What kind of offspring would you expect an invertebrate like Turnbull to breed? His son is a carbon copy of Turnbull and just as dangerous. The pair of them are little more than manipulating conmen who lie and connive their way to amassing fortunes at the expense of others. This pair of traitors should be charged as such.

    Pengana was an investment fund started by Turnbull and another guy. A financial adviser put $ 50000 of my money in Pengana property securities fund in about 2004. in 2009 they closed it and paid me $17358 is this how these guys make there money

      The rogues do John, a solicitor friend told me about a person who thought it was acceptable business practise to establish a business, create bankruptcy and also steal suppliers/creditors monies.

    I’m waiting for a LIBERAL to run for the seat of Wentworth.
    I see the Turdbull’s pal Dave Sharma has been donating to GetUp!
    One can believe that the Turd has been doing the same.

  • DT 27/02/2020, 11:45 am

    The Australian and other sources, also stopturnbull website, revealed that GetUp were used by him and his Black Hand Faction commencing 2006 to help them undermine political opponents like Tony Abbott.

    “28th July, 2010 – It is reported that Turnbull isn’t putting the Liberal Party logo on any of his campaign literature, signs or advertisements. This is a recurring habit, and yet more evidence that, for Turnbull, it’s all about using the Liberal Party as a convenient vehicle for his own ideological and personal agenda.

    Meanwhile, Turnbull has dinner with his ideological ally, Simon Sheikh from the leftist GetUp!, and proudly posts a photo on his social media accounts.

    Would someone like Sheikh ever be in a similar friendly photo with John Howard or Tony Abbott?” ….. stopturnbull website
