Even though I am a proponent of AGW Theory, I hate these type of articles. It uses clickbait, misquotes and appears to be framed as a "Trump bashing" piece.

There has been a lot of talk lately about "false news". This article is an example of that.

David, Enjoy you battling trolls such as Mike Flynn, but you have to understand that the Aussie-kind, exemplified by Flynn, are Larrikin. Look up the history of the Australian Larrikin and find that it is part of their culture to oppose. A plurality of the climate trolls that inhabit blogs such as Spencer's and especially Curry's are Larrikins.

You are battling a fraction of a nation's mindset when dealing with Flynn:

"The notion of disruption should resonate well with a nation that has always championed the larrikin and has an irreverent dislike for authority"

Keep talking innovation and agility, Malcolm Turnbull, but do it this way --
