Climategate: 5 Aussie MPs to Resign

For those of you who don't know, an MP in Australia or the U.K. means "Member of Parliament," which is the equivalent of our U.S. Congressmen. I wonder when ClimateGate will kick in here. Our liberal news media knows that if they report honestly and factually here, they will indict themselves and almost every Democrat in office (and even some moderate--dumb--Republicans).

Though the ETS squeaked narrowly through Australia’s House of Representatives, its Senate is proving more robust – thanks not least to the widespread disgust by the many Senators who have read Professor Plimer’s book Heaven And Earth at the dishonesty and corruption of the AGW industry. If the Senate keeps rejecting the scheme, then the Australian government will be forced to dissolve.

For the rapidly increasing number of us who believe that AGW is little more than a scheme by bullying eco-fascists to deprive us of our liberty, by big government to spread its controlling tentacles into every aspect our lives, and scheming industrialists such as Al Gore to enrich themselves through carbon trading, this principled act by Australia’s Carbon Five is fantastic news.
