Hone is a lovely man

Hone Harawira

Well, I’m gobsmacked!

I’ve received a report that Hone Harawira has a redeeming feature.

It would seem that, among his many sins, he doesn’t believe in Global Warming, according to TV3 News this evening.

Well done, him; seems he’s not such a bad egg after all!

16 Thoughts on “Hone is a lovely man

  1. Hone is in many ways the archetypal heretic, so it maybe comes as no surprise that he doesn’t toe the party line on climate change.

    On a related subject, Frank Furedi writes a good piece in Spiked on intolerence in modern society (with particular reference to Sir John Beddington’s recent pronouncements)

    Only intellectual cowards demand ‘gross intolerance’

    The modern men of science who want to silence quacks are ironically on the same side as pre-Enlightenment religious dogmatists.

  2. It would seem that, among his many sins, he doesn’t believe in Global Warming

    Well, that would then be his only redeeming feature.

    Did anyone see David Suzuki on TV1 just before 9am this morning?

    Not a lovely man. I can only describe him as a lying skunk.

    Right now he might be able to put his imaginary climate change in perspective in view of ChCh – but I doubt it.

    At least viewer numbers to his film will be down.

    Richard and all my NZ friends whom I’ve met on this site – we in Australia are seeing the news of what happened in Christchurch
    the best of luck to you and yours and to everyone in Christchurch
    from Toowoomba and I’m sure all in Australia to whom NZ is a much cherished neighbour

    • Thanks Val, it’s been a very horrific event. There are still people trapped, and we’re all hoping the rescuers can get to them in time. It seems Aus and NZ are in the wars at the moment.

    • Thanks Val.
      I managed to evacuate my family to south canterbury this morning. Christchurch is a real mess, but we, at least, are all glad to be safe and unharmed. Not so for everyone, sadly

    Latest news from Aussie. Carbon dioxide hater Gillard is now saying carbon tax coming in 2012!
    I though I had escaped it for now! dam.

    • I had a call from a friend in Canberra, checking on how I was after the earthquake.
      His wife works for the Green party. They are having an all expenses paid trip to London, spouses included.

      Who says that crime doesn’t pay?

    Earthquakes trump climate change hands down.

    143 dead and rising, NZ$10bn damage.

    All right now – not in 2100.

    • Richard C (NZ) on February 28, 2011 at 7:08 pm said:

      Update, $20bn. Climate change is nothing in comparison. An earthquake did $20bn damage in 1 minute and people are worried about something that MIGHT happen over the rest of the century. Time for some perspective.

    • The long term economic damage to the country from the quake hasn’t even started yet. Many people won’t be coming back to ChCh after this.

    • John ONeill on March 25, 2011 at 8:20 pm said:

      For some real perspective, last time carbon dioxide levels were at current levels, sea level was between 3 and 5 metres higher than now. That would permanently flood all the liquefaction prone parts of Christchurch, most of the tsunami hit area of Japan, and every other port and estuary. That makes a few years devastation to small regions look completely insignificant in comparison. That’s what we can expect without adding any more greenhouse gases, and without considering some other effects that could be even more serious.

    • Are you saying that the present levels of CO2 will lead to sea level rising to between 3 and 5 metres higher than present? If you’re serious, do you have a reference for that proposition?

    • Richard C (NZ) on March 26, 2011 at 2:14 pm said:

      Thanks, you’ve just disproved any link between CO2 levels and sea level. If there was a link, much of the surrounding neighbourhood where I live would be under water right now.

    I don’t think there’s too much to love about Hone.
    If ever there was a reason to dump MMP, here it is.
