In a week when war raged, the climate denialists fumed. Just ask Tony Abbott. – » The Australian Independent Media Network

Rachael Withers in The Monthly

“Writing in The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday (Murdoch’s American Masthead) (and dutifully republished by The Australian), former PM Tony Abbott joined the raft of commentators trying to link Russia’s invasion to a “weakened” West’s obsession with social and environmental issues.”

Withers continued:

“He went on to criticise all three members of AUKUS for their focus on reducing emissions, implying that it was this that had emasculated the West (along with globalisation, “cultural Marxists”, COVID restrictions and the fact that you couldn’t even make Monty Python’s Life of Brian these days).”

(His camp follower)

Herald Sun columnist Andrew Bolt never to be left out of a bit of truth bashing, was not far behind ( simply paraphrasing) what he’d said

“… the war in Ukraine has exposed the lethal danger of falling for green myths … Russian president Vladimir Putin would never have dared invade Ukraine if the green movement hadn’t first made Europe look helpless,” he added.

All Abbott ever does when he enters the realm of serious discussion is highlight the fact that he was grossly unsuitable for the office of Prime Minister of Australia. However, the most pressing matters regarding climate action came out of all this unworldly nonsense.
