World War III has been postponed pending an environmental impact study



Ever since our very own Kevin Rudd defined it as the "greatest moral challenge of our time", the world's leaders (and I use that term loosely) have been fiddling with the world's imaginary temperature dial whenever they are totally clueless about what to do next.

The G20 in Hamburg was a case in point: never mind terrorism, Europe's Islamisation, Iran, Kim Jong-Un; just prattle on about Climate Change (are we still fence-sitting on Climate Change or back to definitive Global Warming or onto something else entirely?)

There was Mutti Merkel and the two toyboys from France and Canada and a whole bunch of also-rans sneering at good ol' Donald for walking away from them. I would've too. I would've run! What a waste of time!

I'm sure Trump is far too busy establishing his nepotic Trump Dynasty back home to attend another talk-fest, so let's just call it the G19. Or make up the numbers with delegates from some African countries who are always keen on an all-expenses-paid trip to Western fleshpots.

In the meantime, South Korea has halted the deployment of a missile defence system against the sabre-rattling North because it wants to run an “environmental impact assessment” first. Thank God, World War III has been postponed pending an environmental impact study.

And that, my friends, is what's wrong with limp-wristed democracies. Keep fiddling, Nero!
