Tilting at Windmills

“When you’re the leader of Australia you don’t always have the chance to, I think, just have thought bubbles. You’ve got to create investment certainty. What will the renewable energy investors in wind power now think, knowing Australia is run by a bloke who says he doesn’t like windmills?” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/jun/11/windfarms-may-have-potential-health-impacts-tony-abbott-says)

Thought bubbles are caused by inconsistent cranial pressure due to cognitive dissonance, i.e. holding mutually incompatible beliefs, such as ‘climate change isn’t happening, or if it is, it isn’t human-caused, and it’s certainly not Australia’s problem.’ You’re still cactus.
