Not dancing with the stars but away with the fairies.

While Winston is off obfuscating in the media about donations and secret trusts I find it amazing in 2008 that a NZ political leader can say “I remain sceptical that greenhouse gases are the cause of a global warming.” which Rodney Hide did at ACT’s Upper South Regional Conference in Christchurch on Sunday. You would expect more from the only MP in the House with an ecology degree.

Gareth Renowden, at Hot Topic says “The errors he makes and the ignorance he displays are so egregious that the speech amounts to a public suicide note from a politician with aspirations to a role in governing this country.” I tend to agree and wonder if Rodney has joined the Flat Earth Society too?

I’m not sure if Rodney is a gblog reader,  but if he is, here are some links which may help him with the state of climate science:
