Proof climate destroyers love Australia

Posted by Dave Bath on 2009-05-05


Big Carbon and the politicians who receive their bounteous donations obviously love Australia, and would probably want the following as our national anthem:

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.

Climate destruction policy seems to mesh well with love of a hot country with extreme weather events.

    But our current anthem has the word ‘girt’ in it. You wouldn’t want to give that up at least. When I was little, I used to think the words ‘Our land abounds in nature’s gifts’, were ‘Our land abounds in ancient stiffs’. It seems like such a bland old anthem. And yet you can do so much with it!

    My daughter’s mondegreen (long ago) include "Australians all are ostriches" – which probably had more truth in it than the anthem. Unfortunately, she hasn’t come out with anything as insightful on political and sociological analysis since.
