Our Prime Minister Mr Abbott yesterday described wind farms as “visually awful”.
He went on to say, “Up close, they’re ugly, they’re noisy and they may have all sorts of other impacts.”
Referring to a current parliamentary inquiry, he added, “It’s right and proper that we’re having an inquiry into the health impacts of these things”
Notice the logic inconsistency with Mr Abbott’s position on global warming:
- There is no evidence that there is a health risk associated with wind farms, yet he is ready and willing to believe there could very well be.
- There is overwhelming evidence that global warming is real and disastrous unless controlled, but he is sending plenty of signals that he does not believe we need to take action. In fact his key business advisor, Maurice Newman, has said climate change is a hoax led by the United Nations in a bid for world domination. Abbott has not contradicted him.
This is not an evidence-based government.
