    where are all these grassroots masses, none in this forum. also whilst ever they persist with this false CO2 climate change garbage, the masses, those we need for permanent change won't come on board, they seek the pleasures of sporting gladiators(modern hero's? what a statement calling a poor role model sports person a hero, hark the modern Colosseum)

    just think bill if we could get aussies involved in real issues, instead of applauding elitists, who do nothing but gather ego points and do nothing.

    i' ready when you are, no need for those one line cheap shots that are seen here, we here want the best for all humans and the planet, we have no desire to rape it we never have had the desire to extract the pleasure of wealth by making the poor suffer.

    we need to adopt good standards each person, i've said it before i assure others no one from my family will ever cause you or others any grief, we don't hoon on the highway, we don't drive drunk even with the pleasure of success like london days of the wealthy with handkerchiefs to posh noses driving over the poor.

    we can support the premise of what you post but will not lord the author

    Illogically dismissing CO2 as a problem and the coveting of a first world lifestyle is the problem

    GH that is a cheap below the belt statement, yes if you are coveting the yuppie 1st world lifestyle then you are guilty, we are not, it is not illogical to dismiss a as yet not proven and never will be proven myth, the myth will deliver nothing short of more misery for the ever growing poor ranks, all you'll have is like now some bloke with large ego collecting donations at the rate of $1k per hour app' just for his own glorification, no thought of the poor in that.

    Its illogical to dismiss the majority of opinions of experts.
    Coveting the 1st world lifestyle shows a total lack of respect for humanity not just the poor.
    Speaking of ego some peoples egos seems to transcend the opinions of experts and logic while willing to name CO2 as a myth and the Jesus myth as fact.
    ....go figure

    let he who is without sin cast the first stone.
