Australian Climate Sceptics Launch World's 1st Denialist Political Party

The world's first up-front political party representing climate sceptics has been launched in Australia. Their president, Leon Ashby, is an Australian Dairy Farmer and Convenor of Landholders for the Environment, which looks to be me to a property owners/rural property rights organization masquerading as an environmental group.

I would love to know whether this is a one man show or if Mr. Ashby can attract a few bodies to his cause. I know nothing of Australian politics, but if something like this showed up in Canada I would probably categorize it as another right wing fringe party that might steal a few votes from the CPoC. Good news for Kevin Rudd?

We have that in Ontario - they're trying to take over the PC's much to John Tory's dismay

If you think that's bad, the warmists are still arguing that the bushfires started by arsonists are AGW related.

As shallow as the Canadian Green Party, no doubt.
I wonder if it's lead by a loud mouthed fat man who thinks he is far more intelligent than he really is.

The Aussies use proportianal representation in their Senate, I'm sure that is where they are looking to gain representation. Everybody that is Pro-PR thinks that that system is only win-win, well for every group that gains representation under PR there is also probably one that doesnt deserve a voice.

Does Paul S. think arsonists cause drought?

Of course he does.
