High IQ idiots

It would be one thing if I thought these people were saying what they’re saying and doing what they’re doing because that is where the votes are. What amazes me more than anything is that these people really believe it. From The Oz just now: Paris Climate Deal: Turnbull government stares down dissenters, from which:

Environment Minister Greg Hunt has defended the non-binding nature of the Paris climate agreement, as the Turnbull government stares down climate change dissenters within its own ranks.

Liberal MP Dennis Jensen, an outspoken climate change sceptic, warned the agreement was “essentially meaningless” and Australia should avoid “metaphorically burning our economy just to appear good on the global stage”.

“Basically countries set their own targets and there’s no enforcement strategy. It provides flexibility to do anything essentially,” he told ABC Radio.

“The entire globe needs to have similar commitments and be similarly achieving those goals.” . . .

Mr Hunt regretted there would be “no sanctions or penalties if a country falls short of its target”.

“Our preference would have been for that. That’s probably the only real and significant element that we would have wanted, but we all knew that that wasn’t possible for the United States, it wasn’t on China’s agenda,” he told Macquarie Radio.

“Others haven’t always honoured their agreements in the past, that is true. But the difference this time is everybody’s in the cart, everybody’s made their commitment; if countries fall short of that or indeed they renege on it I think there would be enormous internal and external pressure and criticism.”

There is such a thing as a high-IQ idiot and there are plenty of them around.

IN ADDITION: I was reminded by Old School Conservative in the comments of the reaction by the journalists in Paris which is useful in understanding the kinds of media coverage these meetings and agreements get. More HIQI in action as may be seen in their incredible reaction.

    I’m puzzled to work out who is supposed to have the high IQ. Jensen, I suppose.

    Paris Climate Deal: Turnbull government stares down dissenters,

    Yairs, we saw Kim-il Mal’s State broadcaster’s Climate Policy advertorial on teh evening News last night, oh bright shiny new policy announcement, we can but hold in wonderment.

  6. jupes

    it wasn’t on China’s agenda,

    Of course not. Once again – China will increase its CO2 emissions every year until at least 2030. Every. Fucking. Year.

    However they have agreed to reduce the rate of their CO2 emission intensity or some such shit. But they won’t be held to that.

    And the West pats them on the back.

    They take the West for chumps. Quite rightly too.

    Who is this ‘We’ you demented Kool Aid loon !?!

    I specifically voted in the last federal election to get your party in to government and precisely oppose binding supranational sanctions over this madness !

    ‘We’ is now plainly the self-regarding narcissists and spivs who have taken over the Cabinet and are completely ignoring the precise reason a lot of people voted them in.

    The 2013 election was the last chance to save our national chestnuts from being roasted in the fires of progressive fascism ( paraphrasing Jonah Goldberg ), squander monkey economics, PC bull shit and outright corruption.

    The chance is lost and we are toast.

    no sanctions or penalties if a country falls short of its target.

    Funny, I haven’t heard these aspects trumpeted in the MSM. Can’t be true then!

    On another note, to see the journalists screaming their approval when the text of the agreement was announced shows us just how impartial and objective they all are. (yes, Sheldon, that was sarcasm)

  13. kraka

    It gets better-the ALP are now saying that Abbotts Direct Action target of 26-28% from 2005 levels is world leading. 6 months ago it was apparently making us a laughing stock. Naturally all the Turnbull swooners will see this a huge victory when the reality is the ghost of Abbott is looming large in Turnbulls thought processes. I still think the informal vote next year might give us an accidental ALP government. If that is what it takes to get a true conservative party I hope it happens.

  14. Ubique

    It wasn’t on China’s agenda

    It wasn’t on India’s either … And we knew this long before Paris and long before all of the successive failed AGW conferences. Mr Turnbull, Mr Hunt, Ms Bishop – you have been dishonest and misleading. The Paris agreement, like all the others, is a fraud. It won’t take long for even the gullible to work that out.

    Which he won it single handedly.
    Now he’s carrying out this policy.
    He has the mandate.

    Yes please. The more people who promote this and do it the more chance (slim though it still might be) that even the shysters in charge of the Liberal party will be forced to admit after a wipeout in 2016 that they need to take their natural support base seriously.

    El bagdadi had a doctorate in islamic studies. Islamic state, boko haram, el shabaab and every other jihadi group in the work are practicing their faith according to the koran. The hate preachers running Friday night prayers across the world are practicing their faith according to the koran .’The sheik who calls J##s the descendants of pigs and apes is practicing his religion according to the koran.

    But they are wrong and you are right.

    But the laughable theory that man can control the climate, you are all over it.

    “There is such a thing as a high-IQ idiot and there are plenty of them around.”

    I’d definitely put Hunt into that category. He’s like a sponge and simply gabbles on with whatever words are put in his silly head by whoever happens to be the leader of the Liberal Party at any given time. The dill is arguing that penalties should apply for countries that do not meet preset targets on a fallacy that will not make one iota of difference to planet earth, and that the biggest nations will do sweet stuff all to achieve. Do he and his latest love buddy Malcolm the Marvellous understand that they are telling us all a huge lie, and that most of us know they are lying?

  27. DionysusOZ

    I’m not so sure that they really do believe it; some certainly do but I suspect these are a small number of fanatics/ideologues who can only perceive the world through their narrow prism; never as it actually is.
    For the vast bulk of public warmies, I cannot believe they are immune from reason and science and they surely harbour at least some private doubts.
    I claim no special political insight or connections but those I have spoken to who do, tell me that a significant majority of coalition MP’s are sceptics as are a sizeable number of Labor MP’s.
    What is most interesting – and sobering – for me is the ringside seat we all have as to how shallow the foundations of reason and tolerance really are.
    Especially when the triumvirate of political fanaticism, financial opportunism and bureaucratic self interest opposes them.
    We are not as far from idolatry, irrationality and serfdom as we think.

    I cannot believe they are immune from reason and science and they surely harbour at least some private doubts.

    The San Bernardino shooters were identified before they went on their rampage, but neighbors didn’t dob them in so as not to seem “racist”

    private doubts are the private misgivings of a coward.

    Staying silent to avoid being branded a heretic or, even worse, bagging carpets in the face of mania are both major flaws in the political process

    Political correctness is a very effective weapon

    how shallow the foundations of reason and tolerance really are.

    I don’t think it’s the shallowness, it’s about society, for fear of seeming “intolerant”, dignifying bad ideas as good ones. Critical principle and Alinskyism uses the consistency principle and civility against the host society.

    The non binding nature of the agreement proves that even the “believers” don’t actually believe the planet is warming, or that CO2 is any sort of pollutant. If they truly believed this nonsense, and if it had been scientifically proven, the agreements would have been non negotiable and binding. And even China would have come to the party. It’s all about revenue redistribution……bottom line. Phaarking LYING THIEVING c n uts.

  38. The people who will make more and more of all that stuff we like will increase their emissions. That simple. It takes lots of (Aussie) coal to make even a Prius or a solar panel in Asia.

    Turnbull will ignore this giant fact unless the weight of opinion among Eastern Suburbs doctors’ wives forces him to make an actual decision one way or another. Which won’t happen. Turnbull will just start one of those sentences which he hopes to finish next Friday…or maybe continue some sentence he started last Tuesday.

    We will continue to export coal in enormous quantities and continue to waste, neglect, despise and tax domestic coal power. We will continue to rely utterly on coal for our domestic power, but we will treat it like the grimy old servant who does all the drudging and lifting but isn’t allowed inside the main house. Big Oil/Gas, however, is allowed right into the salon to mix with solar and wind, those weedy fashionistas. (The deal is that Big Oil/Gas will just be there as a “transition”…but that shrewd old boy knows there ain’t gonna be no transitions. Wind and solar = gas, right? Wink. Hence all those millions Chevron gave to Sierra. Wink.)

    All of this, despite the fact that we have centuries supply of the best Permian black lying in our back yard…at a time of constant global tensions over pipelines, sea lanes, sea claims, existing sea sovereignty, land borders, and territory disputed for fossil fuels. (Nobody fights to conquer wind farms for some reason.)

  40. Habib

    Hunt (with a capital C) is another dud suburban lawyer with no training, knowledge or concept of atmosperic physics, a perfect example of everything wrong with this government, and contemporary Australia for that matter. Peanuts barely capable of handling the conveyencing of a spare lot (made far more complicated by others of their kind with a bent for intrusive micro-management) are now calling the shots that can empty our wallets, drive profitable businesses to bankruptcy, and regulate us into craven submission. Governing this place is a piece of piss, and Australia should be an antipodean Kuwait (minus the dishtowels and fanbelts), instead it’s an over-regulated socialist basketcase verging on having the bailiffs in. I hope sea levels rise faster than expected, and one of the grey and white denizens of Spencer Gulf cruises in an rends this fatuous little prick limb from limb.

  47. Ant

    Pointing to temperature records and trends – ie facts – has no effect on a certain kind of idiot.

    For them it’s a win/win situation. If AGW is real, great, they think they’ve taken action to limit it. If it’s crap, they think that “de-carbonising” the developed world’s economy can only have a positive effect on the environment regardless and/or redistributing wealth to loser nations is philanthropic and/or the trough’s full and their snouts are ready to cash in.

    What’s not to like about that? At the end of the day, they’re feeling great about themselves and ultimately that’s all that matters.

    In fact the Paris Agreement, which I have read, seems to say that the $100Bn a year transfer payment now depends on “transparency on implementation” from the receiving countries. No chance of that, so it has effectively been cancelled.

    From the Warmist point of view, Paris actually went backwards, but they’re too dim to even read it.

    I doubt the party room even discussed the apparent Cabinet position of

    “We desperately would have preferred to surrender our national sovereignty to an unaccountable regime of sanctions and penalties over our completely irrelevant emissions of CO2 and methane, which would have allowed the political class to jackboot our way around the country as carbon capos to ensure no backslidding or failure to meet quotas.”

    Wouldn’t surprise me. On their ABC last week they were saying that the amount of anthropogenic CO2 produced this year had dropped due to renewable energy.

  68. 2dogs

    no sanctions or penalties if a country falls short of its target

    Although the warmies may be cheering, I think the Hunt’s regret above means we can chalk this up as a ‘win’.

    The general scenario for these environmental scares is as follows:

    Phase 1: Nothing is done.
    Phase 2: Nothing happens.
    Phase 3: Nothing is said.

    The Murray-Darling Basin salinity scare is an example that has reached Phase 3.

    The only way the swampies win is if something is done, breaking Phase 1, like with the Ozone Hole issue. Then it doesn’t matter if in Phase 2 something happens (“we didn’t do enough”) or not (“we succeeded”), the swampies win.

    But we should not interpret the Paris agreement as actually doing something. With no penalties, emitting industries will simply move from countries that choose to comply to countries that choose not to. There will be no overall CO2 reductions. Phase 1 remains secured.

    i am not so sure they are high iq idiots. The world is full of too many people who can’t critically think anymore about these issues…….. This is what universities are supposed to teach, over and above mere content, critical thinking, fuck me it is what the enlightenment was supposed to be about.

    Part of me was prepared to almost accept your hypothesis Steve but with more reflection, you are being to kind. This is not Stalinist Russia, we live in a free society, most of these people have mush for brains caused by a degree to the environment we now live in, which is why they also cannot think through sensibility the whole Islam problem. One’s intelligence never exists in isolation to the world we live in …….it is shaped and formed by it. I am starting to worry about where this country will be in another 50 to 100 years time, lee kuan yew might yet be right, we will will end up the poor white trash of Asia , a land full of imbeciles who are ill equipped to live in a digital and scientific age……..so whether the world is 1 or 2 degrees warmer ( which I highly doubt) , this will be the least of this countries worries……..

  72. rich

    eople who can’t critically think anymore about these issues

    Nassim Taleb talked about it in “Fooled by Randomness”, that humans are notoriously poor at visualising probability. The problem with these elaborate theories and models is that they move further and further from Occam’s razor the more complex they become. It becomes an exercise that says, “look I built a complex machine that can predict the weather tomorrow… if this, this, this and this happens…” when every “this” makes things less and less probable.

    So a “smart” guy can build the most intricate model… that has absolutely no bearing on reality whatsoever. The train set that they built in the basement of their mind is pretty though. The problem becomes when they try to impose that train set on others as moral justification for granting them control of society (“look I can make a realistic train set, imagine what I could do with a real society!!!”)

There is Trudeauian Canada, Obama’s Hope-and-Change America ( good luck at changing Congress ) and the EU monster, most particularly Germany’s feckless ‘Energiewende’ and Britain’s ruinous Climate Change Act as multiple examples of folly and decline.

  79. "Up The Workers!"

    “Paris-ites”!

    What else would you expect?

    ” Surely the branch preselection committee can do something about runt Hunt before the next election. The odious little ignoramus belongs with the Greens; that there is this stupidity rife within the LNP is profoundly depressing.”
    If only they would preselect a rational candidate in lieu of Green-left propagandist Hunt.

    Quite funny that mullumhillbilly doesnt know that Dan Quayle was vice president.

  82. The scam of climate lunacy could go on forever.
    After all conservative governments want to be re elected.
    The best way of maximising the vote is to steal from the left by wonderful warm inner – glow waffle on leftist madnesses like above, El Nino / La Nina farce and say quackery.

    Got the principle? It is all a matter of degree of lunacy or pretense thereof: I recall the Minister for Environment HUNT being a complete sceptic 15 years ago.
    No way would he get more votes by admitting to this.

    One has to contemplate whether Hunt’s mind is nowadays in such auto – mode per above that he no longer engages with reality?
    There is no incentive for Turnbull to use his possibly innate business acumen. Obviously.

    The worst of all this is that people who contribute to eclectic ideas of betterment of mankind – oops personkind – probably realize how hopeless it all is. AND DO NOT BOTHER.

    Maybe I will run for the Senate on a truth – in media ticket which provides COMPULSORY fines for liars.

    I would make no impression in electoral terms: WE LIVE IN A WORLD OF NONCHALANT NIHILISM.
    Paradoxically it is still the best era to live in – in spite of terrorism et al.
