Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

It's so depressing...

On ABC1, Virginia Trioli (what a spunk, eh?) is interviewing my mate Penny Wong about Ross Garnaut's report which was released today.

Now, Ross, being an economist and therefore unable to bring himself to commit economic heresy, can't say what I'm about to say:

Measures capable of effectively dealing with climate change would crash the global economy. Absolutely no doubt about it. Ergo, depression, baby !!!

Now, since The Economy is The New God, we must not crash the global economy. Ergo, we will not be able to seriously impact climate change.

And here's the Catch 22: The joint impacts of climate change and oil depletion will absolutely crash the global economy. Ergo, depression, baby !!!

Are we getting this yet, boyzangurrlz? There's a depression not too far down the track.

if only we could confine the depression to the economy rather than all of us.

oh i forgot, we are the economy.

no, it's us.

I predict soup kitchens will be needed to feed a million in Sydney alone. And that's if it's only a "baby" of a depression. Oh, and that million? Don't forget they'll be homeless... Unemployed starving people can't pay rent...

There can't be a depression. What will become of Melbourne's Grand Prix?
Which we have just been lumbered with for another umpteen boring years.

Instead of a Grand Prix, you will have a Grand Pricks race. That's where the poor, armed with pitch forks, line up the rich (the grand pricks), give them ten seconds head start and then chase them around the grand prix course. Any Grand Pricks who make it to the finish line alive get to leave the country (at their expense) within 24 hours, the remainder of their assets is confiscated to feed the poor.
