Another vein of stupidity—climate denial. Antarctic and Greenland icesheets are melting at ever increasing rates. What does the shambles do? Set aside $4m for climate denier Bjorn Lomborg to start a “consensus centre” at Uni of WA (shame to them!)

More neoconthuggery:

Hokey would be too gutless and too stupid to do anything about this EVEN if he wanted to, which he doesn’t. Peasants pay for CEOs and the superrich, not the other way round!

THIS is a pretty good summation:

Climate change will never hurt us—there are a growing number of Australian farmers who disagree pretty strongly about that. Saltrams Winery is planting new, more heat tolerant grape varieties on the Barossa Valley floor, some farmers are having to grow new varieties of wheat and are looking to the time wheat will not be a viable crop to them.

Climate change is here and now.

The priest at Gosford Anglican does not hold back:

Religion is 100% bullshit but does attract a very few good people.

Yes, I know this is not strictly a cartoon, so sue me!

You gotta wonder if monkey is keen to sign up to the evil TPP just because it will see the end of Julia (& Nicola’s) Plain Packaging law? He is that childish as we know.

An interesting contribution from Mark Knight.

The death penalty is barbaric and wrong! As the cartoon shows, the two men had reformed and repatriated themselves.

Don’t worry, monkey, Hokey is not planning to provoke it, just to kick pensioners a bit more.
