John Story on the selective catastrophism of climate alarmists
It is far from clear whether the preferred cure advocated by climate alarmists won’t be environmentally worse than the disease, but the Left is madly rushing to tear down our reliable energy production sources anyway.
In fact the “cure” is far worse than the disease. See the first chapter of Triggerwarming for the human, social, environmental, economic and cultural damage of climate-control policies.

SOS SAVE OUR STOVES. Where are FOGS the FRIENDS OF GAS STOVES when we need them. Albo and the Greens are out to take away our gas stoves!
HOH HELP OUR HOSPITALS. Recently The Financial Review ran a piece based on a Deloitte study, reporting:
Australia’s ageing and growing population means the country needs to build a 375 bed acute-care hospital every month for the next 15 years to keep pace with demand and replace our stock. That is 180 hospitals by 2037.
The same modelling estimates that if the system does not evolve the health workforce must become 4 times more productive by 2050 to meet forecast demand,
Put another way if current levels of productivity were held constant, the health workforce would need to grow from 11% to 45% of the total Australian workforce to meet rising demand.
Good luck with that! So much demand for concrete and steel and everything else to build windmills, solar factories and related rubbish.
Deloitte was not prepared to provide a copy of the report.
