So we lied. What to do about it?

OK. Yes, Yes, Yes it was us! We free-market-liberationist Coal Diggers did it ALL!

And LIED! …As is our democratic right when it comes to profiteering.

And haven’t we made a killing! That’s how we can afford so many minion politicians.

So enough judgement already. It was perfectly natural behaviour for unimaginably effluent and powerful people. It’s your problem if your laws are ‘absolute crap’. In fact, if you continue with this discriminatory unearthing of our deceptions we’ll subspeeana the lot of you! Starting with those pesky Climate Guardian Angels popping up left right and centre…

2014-11-28 08.52.41So, moving on. To capitalise on what’s left before the global climate & economy melts down, and in keeping with our democratic principles, we’re including you ALL as stars in our epic Game of Coal serial adventures (think Psycho meets The Road). So don’t be ungrateful.

CDsCanberraCSIROThanks to our media empire, you too can follow our historic $ trail and discover how we “developed a sophisticated and deceitful campaign that funded think tanks and front groups, and paid public relations firms to deny, counter, and obfuscate peer-reviewed research” and “used that misinformation campaign to mislead the public and cast doubt in order to protect [our] financial interest.”

Trust us to entertain you. We’ll mine your emotions too. Surely, you’ll feel exposed as the depths to which Australia has punched above its global tonnage are unveiled!

Still not sure Bébes? Good grief, just take a look at the Barrier Reef!

And in case you missed it, here we are hobnobbing with Lord Monckton – what a sweetie precious that man is! And at the world premiere of ‘Climate Hustle’ and our fellow BUMS™(Billionaires United Mining Services) from the Heartland Institute’s counter-COP21 conference at the swanky, aptly named Hotel California in Paris!



Naturally we’d like to humbly, gratefully acknowledge the relentlessly uninhibited succour of the Institute of Public Affairs (IPA, aka the Coalition) for funding our team of ‘Expertants’ (aka industry consultants) from the Flat Earth Institute. You know the old guys, the medieval astronomers headquartered in the Cayman Islands?

PS Remember, whatever you do, stay away from those Climate Guardian Angels! They mean trouble with a capital T! They manifest in flocks a bit like this…
