This has been going for 1.5 months. Unacceptable.

Australia just played a major role in sinking global climate policy negotiations, because it wanted to cut its target in half using a loophole. For next time someone tells you Aus has no impact on the climate.

Some interesting data on global wildfire emissions. Global averages are trending down due to changing land management practices, but there are regions of "unusual intense activity" (eg Australia):

So in summary, this is not just a plan to deal with climate change in Victoria, this is a plan to manage the risk in our electricity system – risks to both supply and prices. We can have clean, reliable and affordable power if we choose to plan ahead and act now.

And impact on power prices? Again, minimal. In fact, prices *fall faster* under the “replace Yallourn” scenario, and there’s only a minor and short-lived blip in prices at the moment Yallourn is modelled to close in 2023, then the downward trend resumes.

On a related note, there are a bunch of good articles that have come out over the years about why climate change deniers are so likely to be sexist, and do much of their work through the lens of misogyny and far-right id-pol.

Her efforts helped 2019 be the year that everything starts to *really* change - climate science isn't just accepted, climate action is now a *priority*. The denier-dudes from 2009? They're even more isolated, coming into 2020, than they were in 2019

The walls are closing in on bog-standard denialism. The skeezy PR pros evolve into obstructionism, distraction, anti-renewables. But the crusty dudes just sink into the hole. I think GT attracts those people (They're far more likely to be sexist and ageist too).

I think part of the reason so much hate is directed towards is that, in the past ~5-10 yrs, climate denial has gone from publicly acceptable to properly embarrassing. The *sentiment* is still there. The old dudes just channel that into seething personal hatred.
