Former chair of the Australian Coal Association writes:
Climate change is occurring fast and extensively, largely caused by human carbon emissions, with increasing evidence that extremely dangerous “tipping points” in the Arctic, Antarctic, the oceans and elsewhere are being activated, probably irreversibly. Such talk is dismissed as extremism by the political and business incumbency, egged-on by talk-back and media acolytes. Unfortunately, the evidence is piling up, along with the economic cost of extreme weather events, to the point where continued denialism is simply economic illiteracy.
