Tony Abbott says global warming probably 'good'

FORMER Primer Minister Tony Abbott has delivered a speech in London saying climate change is "probably doing good".

In a speech to the climate-sceptic Global Warming Policy Foundation think tank, he said policy to combat it were akin to primitive people who "once killed goats to appease the volcano gods".

He said extreme weather events were not getting worse, but that there was more damage simply because there is "more to destroy".

"Beware the pronouncement, 'the science is settled'," he said.

"It's the spirit of the Inquisition, the thought-police down the ages."

Mr Abbott's wideranging speech also warned against waning Western moral supremacy and Christian values.
