“BLOOD ON HIS HANDS” OR “EGG ON HIS FACE”? – The lower house troll, Greens MP, Adam Bandt, decided to inject himself into the Cyclone Debbie (sadly, not literally) a few days ago, when he claimed that

“If Malcolm Turnbull uses scarce public money to build a new coal-fired power station he’ll have blood on his hands,” Mr Bandt told reporters in Canberra on Monday.

“Because the more coal we burn, the more extreme weather events like Cyclone Debbie or Cyclone Yasi we will see and people will suffer.”

Maybe Bandt should have spoken to meteorologist Ryan Maue before.


Looking at the graph it seems that more coal we burn, the quieter the cyclone activity. I might burn a few lumps myself that I got for Christmas and do my bit for the climate.
