Its good to see a man with some brains, some ability to apply critical analysis, and some courage in a political advisory position for a change when most of them are indoctrinated progressives educated to be just the opposite.
The Chief of Australian PM Tony Abbott’s Prime Minister’s Business Advisory Council is Maurice Newman, and he says the climate change movement wants “a new world order under the control of the (United Nations),” and is “opposed to capitalism and freedom,”. A good harsh truth that has enlivened the Marxist/ communist/ progressive scammers as you enliven a termite’s nest by throwing rocks at it.
Newman’s career spans forty years in stockbroking and investment banking, including as Managing Director in 1984, and Executive Chairman from 1985 until 1999, of what is now the Deutsche Bank Group in Australia. He was Chairman of the Deutsche Bank Asia Pacific Advisory Board and a Director of Deutsche Bank Asia Pacific from 1999 to 2001.
He served as Chancellor of Macquarie University from 2002 to February 2008. Currently he is an Honorary Professor at Macquarie University and Honorary Chair of the Macquarie University Foundation Patrons.
So Mr. Newman is a man of some accomplishments.
Newman argued in a May 8 Australian opinion article that while the climate-change movement presents itself “as an independent, spontaneous consensus of concerned scientists, politicians and citizens,” its “real agenda is concentrated political authority.”
Newman also claims “they [climate-change activists] have captured the UN and are extremely well funded. They have a hugely powerful ally in the White House. They have successfully enlisted compliant academics and an obedient and gullible mainstream media to push the scriptures regardless of evidence.”
A refreshing approach to the truth that is sadly lacking in so many other so called “Govt advisors”. NZ PM John Key’s advisor, Professor Sir Peter Gluckman, badly needs to have a chat with Professor Maurice Newman, and perhaps he could learn a thing or to, not so much about climate change, but about truth, and being unafraid to speak it.
