McKim offers Roberts a tinfoil hat

For keeping lizard people away of course.

One Nation Senator Malcolm Roberts had a win yesterday. With climate change discussed as a matter of public importance in the Senate, he got the chance to talk about his views unfettered, and some senators even agreed with him. Roberts’ speech seemed to be more about Donald Trump than the science of climate change, though:

“One Nation applauds President-elect Trump’s highly moral and courageous position, yet many in this parliament still want to recklessly plough ahead with economy-killing climate policies such as ratifying the Clayton’s Paris Agreement, in stark contrast to the plans of President-elect Trump. If the honourable Prime Minister would like to reconsider his government’s stance, then my office team is in a strong position to assist, given, firstly, the presence of our team’s economic policy adviser and former Trump campaign economic policy adviser, Darren Brady Nelson, and our growing relationships with senior members of the Trump presidential team like Myron Ebell, who will reportedly lead the EPA, and David Malpass, who is under consideration to lead the Treasury. We need to use every resource at our disposal if we are to extricate ourselves from reprehensible accords such as the Paris Agreement.”
