Gems of idiocy via email...

Global 350

350.org is an international campaign dedicated to creating an equitable global climate treaty that lowers carbon dioxide below 350 parts per million.

350 is the number that leading scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide measured in parts per million (ppm) in our atmosphere. 350 ppm is the number humanity needs to get back below as soon as possible to avoid runaway climate change. We are now very close to 390 ppm.

For some truly idiotic crap please visit this site.

Note the supporters (aiders/abetters), and the sponsors.

Shouldn't Malcolm Turnbull's name be on the list of supporters?

Wait a minute -- there that's better
