From Carbon Sense
Many on the alarmist side of the climate debate seem to struggle to find rational arguments or evidence to support their cause so they usually resort to character assassination or defamation. A common attack on me is:
“Viv Forbes is just a coal industry stooge.”
This was put to the test recently at the year’s biggest Mining Industry Function – the Queensland Resources Council Annual Forum and Lunch. The delegates on stage at the forum included very senior managers from BHP Billiton, Shell, Anglo-American, Peabody and Glencore. The audience was invited to ask questions of this panel.
I asked them why companies who employed many competent geologists, physicists and chemists never questioned the science behind the global warming scare.
NOT ONE INDUSTRY FIGURE ANSWERED MY QUESTION and the compere quickly moved on to another matter.
This is how the Courier Mail reported it:
YOU might say mining industry figure Viv Forbes was the proverbial fly in the ointment at the Queensland Resources Council “state of the sector” forum in Brisbane on Wednesday.
The climate change denier got a cold response from a panel of industry high flyers when he asked why none of them questioned the science behind global warming “hysteria”.
Indeed, there was an awkward silence before the group, including top guns from Glencore and Shell, quickly moved on.
Forbes, who serves on the board of Brisbane-based Stanmore Coal, chairs a group known as the “Carbon Sense Coalition” and backs “Clexit,” an exit from climate treaties.
Just this week he reiterated his call “to defund all CSIRO global warming activities” and slammed “research puppets on the UN man-made global warming agenda”.

Just for the record, I am no longer a director of Stanmore Coal, and receive zero income from the coal industry. I still hold shares in Stanmore coal, a coking coal producer and exporter.
Seems that this global warming farce is starting to heat up in many countries…. perhaps many will continue to gain some common sense now that President Trump has taken the lead in debunking the scam……
The Trumpet Blows a Tangled Tune?
Donald Trump is our great hope to lead the world back to Carbon Sense. But he will now be under great pressure to maintain the war on carbon. And some messages we hear from the new administration are concerning:
- “Man has an influence. I don’t believe it is a hoax, but we should be prudent”.
- The Trump administration is committed to “clean coal technology”.
We do not want Al Gore lite in Washington. Maintain the pressure.
Strike now while the green army is still rioting, weeping and wailing.
Would love to hear what our readers from Down Under have to say about this. Don’t be shy, let your voice be heard! Leave a comment!
