Climate change: disturbing images

After paying attention to climate change for a few years now, the overwhelming image of what passes for policy "debate" on the issue is of the government releasing detailed policy while Nick Smith screams and bangs on a pot to hide the fact that he has no response; meanwhile, in the background, various people are standing around with their fingers in their ears yelling that nothing is happening, while Gerry Brownlee crouches over a centrefold of an open-cast mine while dreamily murmuring "sexy coal"...

Obscene but true. Please deposit your SAN points in the receptacle provided.
