    1. Tone looks like cashing in to the lucrative al-right outrage industry
    2. We should pin a thread - "Crazy things that Tony says"

    what he actually said seems pretty reasonable

    Gone from climate change 'isn't happening' to 'it's happening but it ain't that bad'

    Why is Tony, a backbencher political with no bona fides in this matter constantly asked to discuss the issue?

    And what sort of back handers is he getting to discuss it?

    I wonder how long it will be before anyone else grows a set and has a crack at refuting what he actually said...

    https://www.google.ie/amp/s/amp.the...tt-says-climate-change-is-probably-doing-good

    Tones says that climate change is probably doing good and its doing more good than harm.

    He says higher co2 is good for the planet due to increased plant food and that global warming is good as more people die from cold snaps than heat waves.

    Do we really need to say whats wrong about those propositions?

    It sounds like he didn't say anything really
    Do you have the speech?

    If you don't want to look like you're just having a sook over Abbott exercising his right to free speech, yes

    can you post his quotes so we can check the actual words against your paraphrase?

    free speech means you can say whatever you want and if anyone criticises what you say then they hate free speech
