It couldn't have been a more jarring contrast. While negotiators in Paris worked desperately to put the finishing touches on a historic climate change deal.
And prepared to celebrate its successful conclusion.
Back in Toronto, the Con clown and climate change denier Rex Murphy was clearly not pleased.
As only he can...
And sounding like the Mad Prophet of the Tar Ponds.
As this edition of the Post hits the stands, the great Conclave of Catastrophists in Paris will have concluded. The last goose will gladly have surrendered its swollen liver — foie gras does not come without exertion — to the last epicure environmentalist.
Still denying the science,
How much mental energy must have been expanded over that winsome 0.5 degrees, 80 years down the road? The subtleties involved, the logical intricacies deployed, would have outpaced Aquinas and sent poor Augustine to bed early with a migraine. However, the modern monks of the High Church of Global Warming have resources that the early philosophers and theologians could not even dream of — they have computer models that dance in the direction wished of them.
And when what they deliciously refer to as the “settled science” does not serve their needs, they have always about them the ancient texts of Earth in the Balance by Reverend Al Gore, or the early press releases of the Dun Scotus of Global Warming, Cardinal Emeritus George Monbiot.
Still mocking scientists, and climate change activists.
I do not wish to end on a cynical turn here. There has been on undeniable improvement wrought from this great Conclave. St. Leonardo di Caprio, patron spirit of The Yachts of the Monaco Basin, learned for the first time this week that there is such a thing as a chinook. So we now know that there is a least one fact in that well-photographed head of his, and that probably makes it superior to many of those other heads that met so urgently in Paris.
Still sounding like a maniac, or a shameless paid pimp for Big Oil...
Because let's face it, Rexy has written a lot of stinky stuff, but that column has to be one of his worst, and almost certainly his craziest.
And clearly reveals him as a sinister climate change denier, trying to mask his bitterness behind a smoke screen of big words.
So while I understand the CBC has many other big problems, as I pointed out the other night...
A President like Hubert Lacroix and his Con board, who are frantically trying to sell the furniture, after driving the corporation into the ground.
A bunch of useless managers who have caused staff morale to hit rock bottom.
Many employees of Canada’s national broadcaster believe the CBC workplace is psychologically unhealthy and managers do not deal effectively with issues that may threaten or harm them, according to an internal survey carried out following the Jian Ghomeshi scandal.
And of course the brutal legacy of the Harper years...
One thing is for sure, or blatantly obvious to anyone who knows ANYTHING about journalism.
Its news department will NEVER recover its credibility, as long as it continues to employ a fanatical climate change denier, and paid cheerleader for Big Oil, as the editorial voice of its flagship show The National.
Because Gerald Butts, Justin Trudeau's principal secretary, is right to ask this question:
Why does the Post continue to publish such utter jibberish about science from so many people? https://t.co/QRFOA54XFE— Gerald Butts (@gmbutts) December 12, 2015
That National Post article is absolute jibberish. It should be denounced by every sane Canadian, and it should mark the end of Murphy's career at the CBC.
Enough is enough.
Fire that Con clown tomorrow....
