Durban Climate Change Outcome Rubbished

Libertarianz leader Richard McGrath today labelled freshly-demoted cabinet ministers Nick Smith and Tim Groser as "useful idiots in the farce that was recently played out in Durban, South Africa."

"As is the norm for these Climate Change junkets, there was plenty of hot air, and - thankfully this time - little in the way of commitment to further crippling industry and productivity."

"The Libertarianz Party believes individual New Zealanders should be left free to respond to any perceived human influence on global temperature in their own way. They don't need failed politicians such as Smith and Groser to tell them what to do, to punish their attempts to better their lives, and to regurgitate the junk science of charlatans such as Jim Salinger and Phil Jones."

"Global warming, if it actually exists - and there is growing doubt about that - should be embraced, as it offers massive opportunities for people in many parts of the world."

"It may seriously inconvenience some people, if the predictions of the Warmist religion's high priests are ever borne out. But the huge advantages are conveniently overlooked."

"The arrogance of the Warmist lobby, who think that humankind can programme global temperature, is breathtaking."

"The Libertarianz Party calls for an end to the idiocy of the ETS, which unfairly and senselessly penalises New Zealand farmers and industry for no gain."
