A carbon tax is for history deniers

Republicans, take note. Here in Australia, it is election season and the right-of-center Liberal Party has launched a provocative anti-carbon tax pollution ad.

And, on the other side of the boxing ring we have PM Julia Gillard, a history denier:

Julia Gillard's Climate History Timeline:


Younger Dryas: 12,900-11,600bp

Holocene Warming a: 11,600-8,500bp


Egyptian Cooling: 8,500-8,000bp


Holocene Warming b: 8,000bp-5,600bp


Akkadian Cooling: 5,600-3,500bp


Minoan Warming: 3,500-3,200bp


Bronze Age Cooling: 3,200-2,500bp


Roman Warming: 500BC-535AD


Dark Ages: 535AD-900AD


Medieval Warming: 900AD-1300AD


Little Ice Age: 1300-1850AD


Manmade Climate Change: 1850AD-...


No debate over who I'm rooting for.
