Brazil cancels climate conference, sacks militant Greenie, calls environmentalists an “industry”

Brazil, eighth largest economy in the world is unashamedly backing out of green schemes.

In Brazil, President Jair Bolsonaro is “dismantling” environmental agencies and missions. Brazil pulled out of hosting the 2019 U.N. climate summit, and has now canceled a United Nations climate change event that was to be held in August.

Environment Minister Ricardo Salles … said he was more interested in dealing with the problems that affect Brazilians who aren’t concerned about “climate change in Paris” or “meetings in Stockholm.”

“It’s an industry,” he said of the environmental movement. “It’s an industry of consultants, an industry of lectures, an industry of seminars.”

A few days ago Bolsonaro also sacked the “militant” activist appointed by his predecessor as head of The Brazil Forum for Climate Change. I can’t think why…

    There’s still plenty of militant anti-capitalist watermelons to go around.

    Bolsonaro will continue to be painted as an extreme right problem character by the mainstream media, just as Salvini of Italy is. He’s doing what only Trump has dared to do so far. Our politicians are still dancing to the tune of the UN and the MSM.
    A recent BBC piece on Salvini ended with a note about his relaxed attitude to selfies with his audience.
    “He’s the most approachable politician in Europe” they said. An invitation to troublemakers or worse?

    I can’t imagine anybody wanting a selfie with any Brussels dignitary. You might want one with Macron so you can do some creative and fun artistic adaptation on it.

    I think the tide has turned, that sort of approach is having less and less impact. Trump’s election in US is one indicator. Saturday’s election will tell us if our media are losing their power.

Shorten, Clinton, Sanders are centrists, there is no extreme left, even the Antifa fascists are in the centre; must be wonderful to live in a dream world all the time. A world of your own making.

    Yes, what Thomas Sowell calls (in “Intellectuals & Society” which I am currently absorbing via Audible) notions and which he descibes as being totally unrelated to real life.

    Australia is like that annoying little shit on the playground running after everyone demanding to play too. He has the same opinions and beliefs of the big kids and is always last to know things have changed. So, as the rest of the world wakes up to reality Australia will still be beating the climate change drum. 10 years from now our poloticians will smell the coffee and start following the next international craze. What crimes did we commit to deserve these scum?

    Dr Fred, indeed. Am I the only one wondering when the mincing poodle announces a job with the sub builders? 50 billion surely gets a former polly a seat as an executive or consultancy where he can play golf, travel to France, drink expensive wine and contribute absolutely nothing?
