Here are a few terms and quotes to remember the dumb Australians by…

Coal miners’ [genetically compromised] daughters!

What happened to all the canaries?

Koalas too!?

“My father and brothers were coal miners.”
“I report the assault on nature evidenced in coal mining that tears the tops off mountains and dumps them into rivers, sacrificing the health and lives of those in the river valleys to short-term profit, and I see a link between that process and the stock-market frenzy which scorns long-term investments-genuine savings-in favor of quick turnovers and speculative bubbles whose inevitable bursting leaves insiders with stuffed pockets and millions of small stockholders, pensioners, and employees out of work, out of luck, and out of hope.” ― Bill Moyers

Aussie Politics
“If there were to be a Labor-Greens government, that would be the end of the Adani mine, that would be the end of coal mining in central Queensland, and that would be the end of their best shot at economic prosperity in the future.” ― George Brandis

Industrial Suicide
“Agriculture is the most destructive industry that we have. More than coal mining and other extractive industries.” ― Allan Savory

Burning the carbon to put the ‘Great’ in Great Britain
Okay! The dinosaurs in the UK could eventually freeze to death due to the massive swings in the climate change caused by burning the “carbon sitting underneath Britain in the form of coal ” and “carbon sitting under Saudi Arabia in the form of oil”,  too, but…
“When the Industrial Revolution started, the amount of carbon sitting underneath Britain in the form of coal was as big as the amount of carbon sitting under Saudi Arabia in the form of oil, and this carbon powered the Industrial Revolution, it put the ‘Great’ in Great Britain, and led to Britain’s temporary world domination” ― David J. C. MacKay
[Why did they burn their forests, too? Editor]

James Hansen:
“Coal is responsible for as much atmospheric carbon dioxide as other fossil fuels combined and it still has far greater reserves. We must stop using it.”

Lying Ted Cruz [Trying to pander to Koch brothers and suck their dicks, when both of them were still above the ground]
“I think God has blessed this country with enormous natural resources, and we should pursue all of the above. We should be developing oil, and gas, and coal, and nuclear, and wind, and solar, and ethanol, and biofuels. But, I don’t believe that Washington should be picking winners and losers.”

The Fossil Hunter of Sydney Mines
“Good thing we weren’t here when this happened,” Fred added. “We’d be pancakes – DEAD ones!” ― Jo Ann Yhard
