Terry Cardwell gains support

CLIMATE change sceptic Terry Cardwell says he’s received hundreds of supportive emails from all over the world after The Morning Bulletin published his thoughts on coal-fired power generation shortly before Christmas.

“It looks like I’ve become a bit of a global phenomenon,” said the North Rockhampton businessman yesterday as he ploughed through another batch of messages.

“I just wanted to set the record straight about the cleanliness and efficiency of coal powered electricity and encourage people to think for themselves about the whole climate change issue,” he said.

“And judging by the response – I’ve spent the last 10 days answering emails – there are lots of people all around the world who believe they are being lied to by governments and the global warming industry.”

Terry worked in power stations for 25 years, rising from an apprentice and fitter to power plant operator.

He says the hysteria about harmful emissions from burning coal stems from the spreading of misinformation and he wants to set the record straight.

“I know that there are big lies being told about the impact of power stations and that made me question the other statements made by those who want to scare us about climate change.”

“The response has been overwhelmingly positive. It seems many people are realising that they are being conned and they are desperate to have some balance in the debates,

“I would like everybody to seek out information for themselves. There’s a lot out there. You don’t have to accept the lies that are being pedalled by various governments.”

Terry moved to Rockhampton in 1978 and ran Terry’s Marine Centre until 2005.

He’s now the national distributor of an American product, Speedliner.

“Our government wants to introduce an ETS that will be disastrous for the Australian economy, based on the misconception that global temperatures are rising.

“But they are actually falling.

“And if you accept what most media reports say you will believe that the scientific community around the world believes in global warming.

“But in fact 35,000 scientists have signed a petition on a website saying they don’t believe in it.”
