A Casualty of Climate Change Chicanery?

Tony Abbott

Tony Abbott became the 28th Prime Minister of Australia on 18 September 2013 but his tenure as Prime Minister was short lived because on 14 September 2015 he was defeated in a vote for the Liberal leadership and ceded the prime ministership to Malcolm Turnbull the following day.

On 14 September 2015, Malcolm Turnbull, the Minister for Communications, resigned and stated his intention to challenge the Liberal Party leadership in a leadership spill.

Turnbull stated that Abbott “was not capable of providing the economic leadership we need” and that the Liberal Party needs a “style of leadership that respects the people’s intelligence”.

A party-room meeting held that evening saw Abbott defeated by Turnbull on a 54-44 vote.


The mainstream storyline is that “his demise was a result of poor opinion polling, policy U-turns and gaffes, mean-spirited politics…”

According to The Economist, his demise was a result of poor opinion polling, policy U-turns and gaffes, mean-spirited politics and being “readier to alarm Australians about security—for instance the threat of militant Islam in their midst—than to develop an inspired economic agenda.”


However, one reason for Tony Abbott’s demise as Prime Minister that is conspicuously absence from the mainstream narrative is that he “considered asking a taskforce to investigate whether the Bureau of Meteorology was exaggerating temperature data records”.

Tony Abbott considered asking a taskforce to investigate whether the Bureau of Meteorology was exaggerating temperature data records following the publication of such claims in the Australian newspaper, newly released documents show.

The documents show Abbott then asked the foreign affairs minister, Julie Bishop, the then industry minister, Ian Macfarlane, and the environment minister, Greg Hunt, for input on the draft terms of reference.

In a letter to Abbott in November 2014, Hunt called for the removal of the due diligence clause, pointing out that he and his parliamentary secretary, Simon Birmingham, had already “established a strengthened governance oversight of the bureau’s ongoing work in this area”.

The indefatigable Tyler Durden [of ZeroHedge.com fame] has just published a very interesting piece that delves much further into this curious Climate Change connection and rhetorically asks Did A Probe Into “Global Warming” Fraud Cost A Prime Minister’s Job?

In short: trillions are at stake for Goldman as long as the “fight” against global warming continues. And as noted above, cap-and-trade is going to happen or “something like it will” – Goldman’s future revenues depend on it.

In fact, the only thing that can crush this finely orchestrated plan to generate billions in private profits from the mass euphoria to “save the planet” funded, naturally, entirely by the taxpayer, is a critical piece of evidence that the data and statistics behind “global warming” has been fabricated, something which very well may have occurred had Abbott’s plan for an audit gone too far.

And so Abbott suddenly became a major liability, if not so much for Australia, then certainly for Goldman Sachs.

In retrospect, while Abbott completely unexpected exit on September 14 was a shock, his Prime Ministerial replacement should come as no surprise at all: Malcolm Turnbull, as we noted, just happened to be Chairman of Goldman Sachs Australia from 1997-2001.

The same Turnbull who was deposed as opposition leader in 2009 over his support for a carbon tax and an emissions trading scheme, a “scheme” that, when fully implemented, would lead to huge monetary windfalls for none other than Turnbull’s former employer: Goldman Sachs.

So was Goldman the responsible party behind Abbott’s ouster?

One can only speculate, however one thing is certain: any concerns and fears of “probes” or “audits” into Australia’s global warming “data and statistics” are now history.

Another thing is certain: this story deserves to gain some traction Down Under.

    Whether or not Abbott got canned primarily for his sleuthing on the fraud of global warming, agenda 21 is alive and well and is hand in glove with the financialization of everything. Want to live on this earth? Better pay your slave tax as soon as you crawl out of the womb.

    An interesting riposte on Louis Hissink’s blog.

    But sheeting the political coup to the machinations of Goldman Sachs misses the point – politically a global carbon tax is going to happen – there is nothing we can do to change it.

    Our goal is to survive by taking advantage of it; that’s what Goldman Sachs is doing.

    The real villains are the fasciuminists of the UN, if I have Moncton’s neologism spelled correctly, and their quasi-religious, political belief system.

    And when some of the bankers are also fasciuminists, then we have an even bigger problem.

    Could Aussie Prime Minister Tony Abbott be truly the last man standing between the radical left and their plan to have every country in agreement to bring about a new global ruling body? The end-game behind “climate change” (previously “global warming”) is revealed.

    Alan Jones and Lord Monckton discuss the recent overthrow of Tony Abbott, something Monckton warned Australia of nearly twelve months ago.

  5. There has always been interference with Australia’s PMs since the 1960s. John Howard was immune. Murdoch seems to be the Kingmaker. It will be interesting to see how he destroys Bill Shorten, if he does
