Angus Taylor has been treated to a rousing reception at an international Climate Change conference today.
As huge parts of his home country burn or smoulder as a result of catastrophic bushfires, which experts and scientists say is exacerbated by climate change, the Australian Energy and Emissions Reduction Minister has won the crowd over by discrediting the threat of the very thing the entire international conference is on.
Speaking at the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention on Climate Change, Angus Taylor someone how managed to prevent the rest of the group from laughing at him for his nation’s inaction on Climate Change.
Seated amongst representatives of small Pacific Islands whose lives are threatened by rising sea levels, Angus Taylor managed to sway the crowd on the hot button issue by hitting out at ‘scaremongering lefties pushing a radical agenda.’
While initially hoping to push the agenda that Australia is meeting its targets through some ‘carry over credits’ claim that the rest of the world things doesn’t agree with, Taylor was overjoyed at Conference’s willingness to cast doubt about whether climate change is actually a thing.
“I went there expecting to be laughed out of the house because they all believe in climate change, can see our nation is on fire and are aware I’m not taking it seriously,” Taylor said over the phone.
“But they lapped it up.”
“I guess that’s another pretty good reason to stay quiet on the issue,” said the excited man on a taxpayer-funded a holiday.
