    If you Rightards would be.....so kind, as to not allow the biggest asset my state has to die, I would be very grateful.

    $56 billion is nothing compared to the price of climate change alarmism

    THE towering, deadly inferno in London is an extreme, but apt, metaphor for climate change alarmism and progressive politics.

    It’s not climate change that kills. It’s the zealotry of those who believe they are on a Gaia-given mission to save the planet that is capable of causing economic mayhem, poverty and even death.

    Meanwhile, those who should be looking after the community and our security instead waste their time and our money on pointless superficialities that are designed, like cladding, to hide their deficiencies and to make them look good.

    At this stage, it seems those who lost their lives in the Grenfell fire were the victims of not one but two forms of climate-change alarmism: the fire appears to have been started by a fridge that exploded thanks to its “environmentally friendly” coolant, and the flames spread so rapidly thanks to the recently installed “green energy” cladding, designed to beautify this concrete eyesore.

    If true, the coroner may as well scribble “cause of death: climate-change alarmism” on his report. “Energy efficiency” considerations prioritised over safety considerations.

    As I said, the metaphor is extreme, but apt.

    Governments, local authorities, developers, marketers and others have spent the last decade or so cladding our lives in “energy efficient” gizmos.

    At the same time, boring, functional government bureaucracies have diverted efforts from doing their jobs efficiently – like ensuring safety standards are met – and focus instead on making themselves “modern” with endless superficial commitments to popular lefty causes, such as climate change.

    This has seen an explosion of politically correct jargon-filled reports and marketing materials. But just because institutions are environmentally friendly and progressive doesn’t mean they kill you, does it?

    Well, yes and no. The problem comes down to priorities. In the case of the Grenfell Tower that was to modernise the building visually while making it more energy efficient. Safety got lost. Indeed, Dr Glockling of the UK’s Fire Protection Association said that: “… this is the quest for sustainability trumping other concerns.”

    In a complex world, this is what happens when everybody is focused on the wrong goal. Truly important things get missed.

    We see a parallel mistake being made by the Turnbull Government with last week’s Finkel report. The key priority of our energy policy, according to Finkel, is to reduce our CO2 emissions to comply with the Paris Accord.

    As media watch pointed out the cladding is on the building to keep the heat in not for climate change

    The coolant he claims is environmentally freindly but highly flammable is bunker too

    Don't let 79 charred bodies get in the way of a chance to kick climate change " alarmists" Rowan Dean
