  1. The Australian government’s plan to sell their un-saleable carbon tax has hit a snag – their pollsters have discovered that the word ”carbon” provokes anger in the electorate.

    This is no surprise. Most decent people hate liars and the carbon tax campaign has been mired in lies from the start.

    The first big lie was from Penny Wong who described carbon dioxide as a “pollutant”. But people soon learned that this colourless, non-toxic, natural atmospheric gas is the essential source of food for all life on earth.

    The second big lie was graphic – government propaganda pictured a “dirty” coal power station belching black pollution. Three lies in one here – the power station pictured is closed, it is in England, and all carbon dioxide it ever released was invisible.

    Their next mistake was to use paid academics to spread scare forecasts of searing heat and never ending drought, all caused by the demon carbon dioxide. The reality has been no global warming for twelve years, heavy snows in the Northern Hemisphere and heavy rains in Australia.

    The fourth big lie was from the leader of the government, Julia Gillard: “There will be no carbon tax under any government I lead”.

    No amount of weasel words from government propagandists and apologists will erase our memory of these four big lies about carbon.

    Their negative image problem is profound: Whenever the Australian people hear “Carbon” they think “Lies.”

  2. Warning for Australia as Carbon War Erupts in Europe.

    A battle of world significance has started quietly in Europe. Like all battles it is about energy, resources and ideology.

    In the red corner, with a coercive utopian green ideology, is Germany, strongly supported by Denmark and UK. This group wants to forcibly wean Europe off carbon fuels by replacing them with sunbeams, sea breezes and fermented food crops. They get self-serving support from places like nuclear powered France, hydro-powered Scandinavia and geothermal Iceland. They are now proposing more drastic cuts in Europe’s usage of carbon fuels after 2020.

    In the blue corner is Poland, with quiet support from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Romania.

    Poland relies on coal power, has undeveloped gas resources and prefers to use its short growing season to produce food, not fuel. The Poles know that nuclear power is the only realistic non-carbon option for Eastern Europe. They have recent experience of coercive central planners, and want to avoid dependence on Russian gas.

    Naturally the German Greens oppose Poland’s use of coal, gas or nuclear power. In self-defence, Poland is opposing the plan for extra cuts in the use of carbon fuels in the EU after 2020.

    This is a crucial battle in the carbon war. If Eastern Europe caves to the Greens, all Europe faces very painful adjustments. Power and food costs will surge, electricity supplies will become unreliable, and industry and jobs will migrate.

    This battle shows that the green consensus in Europe is starting to crumble. If Europe cannot get unanimous support for more carbon cuts, even within the EU, there is no hope for a binding world treaty.

    Australia seeks green adulation by trying to lead the world in carbon taxation, but Australia is in the same position as Poland with nuclear power banned and little hydro potential. Australia and New Zealand are already the lonely carbon fools of the Pacific. The growing doubts in Europe may well leave us with the world title.

  3. Cancel Carbon Climate Capers

    Pretend for a moment that we wanted to forcibly reduce the production of carbon dioxide by Australians.

    There are three ways to do it.

    The first option is to levy a tax on every tonne of carbon dioxide produced. This assumes that if you tax something, less of it will be produced. This is phase 1 of the Gillard/Greens scheme. Tax payers rate this the “least worst” scheme because it is simple, easily demonised and easily abolished once it becomes obvious that it is achieving no climate benefits at great cost.

    A second option is to use ration cards like those used to ration petrol during the war. The quantity of cards issued is set each year and issued to industries favoured by the ruling politicians. The ration cards can be traded in an official market or on the black market. This is phase 2 of the Gillard/Greens scheme. It is greatly favoured by bankers, brokers, traders and speculators.

    The third option is the bureaucratic snow job where politicians try to hide the true costs of their carbon phobia under a suffocating blanket of taxes, subsidies, rebates, mandates, quotas and permits designed to apply the death of a thousand cuts to the usage and costs of carbon fuels. The bureaucracy, the lawyers, the Greens and some Liberals favour this underhand scheme.

    The worst plan of all is to burden Australia with all three schemes. This is the current climate caper from all parties.

    The way out of this mess is repeal, repeal and repeal.

    Abolish every policy, tax, subsidy or bureaucracy established during the lunatic phase of climate madness – repeal everything with “carbon”, “clean”, “climate”, “green” or “smart” in its name.

    The sky will not fall and our jobs, our industries and all plant life will benefit.

    Why Green Energy produces Red Ink

    Generating electricity from solar panels in cold, cloudy Northern Europe is like growing paw-paws in Iceland – it can be done, but who would be so silly as to try?

    Germany was silly enough to try. Germany gets about an hour of useful sunshine per day in winter – solar power is weakest just when they need it most. But they have installed about half of the world’s solar panels. Germany’s Q-Cells, once the world’s biggest manufacturer of solar panels, just went broke. So did four other German solar companies.

    Sunny California also tried, but despite a half billion dollar loan from US tax payers, solar panel manufacturer Solyndra went broke. Solar Trust of America, recently offered $2 billion in loan guarantees by US tax payers, has also filed for bankruptcy.

    All the European PIIGS have tried – and the waste of taxpayer funds on failing green energy schemes is a major reason for their parlous financial state.

    The only sensible participant in the solar industry is China – they make panels very cheaply using coal or nuclear power and sell them to green dreamers.

    The reason green energy creates so much red ink is pretty obvious – it just needs one day’s observation of the sun.

    Full strength solar energy is available around midday for maybe 8 hours each day, providing the skies are clear, and there is no dust on the panels, and you are in a tropical zone. For the other 16 hours of the day, most electricity must come from reliable energy sources like gas, hydro, coal or nuclear. This about doubles capital and operating costs for no increase in output.

    With all this compelling evidence of the failures of solar electricity, why is the Australian government frittering $1.5 billion on green toys like the Moree and Chinchilla Solar farms?

    Green gambling is for private speculators not for captive tax payers.

  5. The Soda Water Scam

    With the failure of “Global Warming” the climatists have concocted a new alarm – the soda water scare.

    Their computer models are forecasting that the oceans, which weigh 300 times more than all the gases in the atmosphere, are being turned acidic by the 0.0012% (12 parts per million) of man-made additions to the carbon dioxide (CO2) in Earth’s atmosphere.

    CO2 is a natural gas that dissolves in water. The amount absorbed depends upon how much CO2 there is in the air, and the temperature of the water. CO2 dissolves best in cold water and is expelled as the water warms. And far more would be absorbed if there was 100% CO2 in the atmosphere above.

    When concentrated CO2 gas is bubbled under high pressure into ice cold water much CO2 dissolves, producing acidic soda water whose pH (acidity) could be as low as 4. This is 1,000 times more acidic than pure water whose pH is a neutral 7.

    But oceans are much warmer than that and atmospheric CO2 is at much lower pressure. Therefore in the open ocean, pH seldom gets below 8, ten times more alkaline than pure water.

    This weak soda water could only be described as “acidic” by someone pushing an alarmist agenda. There are no measurements that show that the pH of the ocean is changing more now than in the past – only models. In historical terms, atmospheric CO2 levels are now close to record lows. Corals and other ocean life have flourished in atmospheric levels of CO2 far higher than today’s.

    We are told that the tiny bit of natural soda water in still-alkaline sea water will dissolve corals and shells, kill fish and create oceanic mayhem?

    If soda water is so dangerous, then how come people consume it in copious amounts in beer, scotch and fizzy drinks?

    All plant life, on land and in water, flourishes if CO2 is added to the currently meagre natural supply. All ocean life depends on the availability of CO2 that feeds algae, plankton and other sea plants.

    To suggest that today’s minute supply of plant food in the atmosphere will cause an acidity crisis in the oceans is baseless scare mongering. The computer models used to forecast this disaster are no more reliable than those that have failed to forecast global temperatures for the last 15 years.

    The soda water scare is not about ocean acidity. It is part of a scheme to drive fishermen from the Coral Sea promoted by the same people who want to force graziers from the grasslands, foresters from the forests and miners from the coal fields.

    Like so much in Australia’s politicised research industry, too much ocean research focusses on designing computer models to manufacture crises which are then used to justify locking up the Coral Sea and hobbling coastal industries and development.

    The new frontiers for ocean research are not along lazy tropical beaches or beside Coral Sea resorts. The secrets to past and future climate changes will be found by real observations in the deep oceans along the mid-ocean rifts where periodic volcanism will have massive effects on oceans, atmosphere and global climates.

  7. The first big lie was from Penny Wong who described carbon dioxide as a “pollutant”.

    In my opinion, this porkie from the Wong Wun is so typical of politicians, lawyers and queers, none of whom could resist the temptation to twist the truth to further their own ends. Her life before politics as lawyer only adds to the case, anyone whose career depends on twisting words into unrecognizable forms should be immediately disqualified from politics. Note the oft peddled line about scientific studies that proved straight (so-called ‘homophobic’) males are closet queers. Whilst there was in fact ONE study, the conclusion was that under certain very specific circumstances, a very small number of ‘homophobics’ MIGHT exhibit queer tendencies. The vast majority of straight males are however exactly what they claim & have no interest or inclination toward turd-burglary. Personally I find the very thought sickening and I can fully understand why the Bloke Upstairs described them as ‘abominations’. Mind you the likes of the Wong Wun would never dream of letting the truth interfere with a good story.

  8. Dear Editor,

    Prime Minister Abbott once again is launching a spurious attack on wind farms and renewable energy. Not content with sending manufacturing workers to the unemployment queues (eg. Car manufacturing, ship/submarine building- with the associated loss in expertise), his Government has prevented thousands of people from gaining employment with the renewable energy industry and conducting constant attacks on, and winding back the Renewable Energy Target (RET).

    Both Treasurer Hockey and Abbott have described the wind turbines as offensive, and they have launched an enquiry into their adverse impacts including health. Curious how Australians and the Dutch have been using windmills for centuries without aesthetic or health impacts. I have yet to find anyone that considers open cut coal mines and CSG drilling rigs to be more attractive than wind turbines. The latter certainly have disastrous health impacts on communities, that are constantly overlooked and dismissed by State and Federal Governments, in spite of expert advice from medical practitioners, toxicologists and others.

    I find it extremely offensive that the LNP chooses to launch enquiries into harmless industries (and issues) while ignoring those industries causing enormous destruction and health conditions as with Coal Seam Gas and Coal Mining.

    These industries have undue influence over both the LNP and ALP, through huge Party donations and jobs for the boys (ex politicians and public servants as revealed in the Sydney Morning Herald recently). The impacts on individuals and families are constantly overlooked when reported to State and Federal Governments, in fact these Governments are acting against these people in favour of the big corporations, even to the extent of changing legislation.

    Recently the State and Federal LNP Governments have been legislating to prohibit freedom of speech by imposing restrictions on people demonstrating against corporations destroying the environment. The Federal Government is moving to remove tax deductible status on environmental organisations (such as those trying to protect the Great Barrier Reef and Great Artesian Basin), yet large polluting organisations continue to have unfettered tax deductibility and rebates at the expense of lower income earners.

    Australia is being restricted from profiting from a clean renewable energy future, with job and wealth producing industries simply because of it’s corrupt political culture.

    Yours Truly,

    THE TRUTH ABOUT PENSIONS
    DEFIES THE LIES OF OUR LEADERS
    Nick Minchin on the Tony Jones ABC TV Program Q & A 11/09/2008 stated quite clearly that funds were not, have not and are not collected and held in a bank account waiting for the government to pay it out in the form of the Old Age Pension, or words that meant, “exactly this.”
    As an ex Australian Federal Government Finance Minister, now shadow defence minister, this man knows that this statement on that television program, was a blatant lie (and he said it with a look of sincerity on his face, the ability of doing so obviously a political prerequisite).
    Well, it certainly was collected, but it amassed such huge amounts, this government and those preceding, couldn’t help themselves and have spent billions of it over the years in a manner they had no right to. “the money earned by the people themselves through hard work and often deprivation ( as a legislation obligation part thereof was collected by the Tax Department for this very purpose ) was in fact and still is, collected as a tax originally, specifically and intentionally so as to fund, “The Aged Pension.”
    To dispel some misinformation currently being promoted by Party Politicians and their spin doctors and lying ex Ministers, listed here are some historical facts every Australian, especially the young who are under the miss-guided belief and/or assumption that they are funding the Aged Pension from their current hard work; They Are Not, they’re funding their own Pension Fund; a fund that governments have no intention of paying and to add insult to injury, legislate to force you to pay into a Super Fund to boot.
    1939-1945
    WORLD WAR II
    1942-1943
    As a Wartime measure, the Federal Government gained sole control over Australian Income Tax. Labor Prime Minister ( Ben Chifley ) introduced three bills to establish the National Welfare Fund, to be financed by a Compulsory Contribution (levy) of one and sixpence in the Pound (20/- ) on all personal income.
    1946
    Opposition Leader (Robert Menzies) stated that the Compulsory Contribution (levy) should be kept completely separate. That it should be shown separately on the Taxation Assessment and paid straight into a “TRUST” account and not mixed with the General Revenue.
    Menzies said “The stigma of charity should be removed from the Age Pension.” ”It should be an entitlement earned by the person’s personal contribution to the fund.”
    Prime Minister Chifley agreed and established The National Welfare fund as at 1/1/1946. A “Trust” Fund with the Parliament as “Trustee.”
    The Compulsory Contributions (levy) commenced as at 1st January 1946.
    It was shown separately on the personal Tax Assessments for 1946, 1947, 1948, 1949 and 1950
    And the compulsory levy was properly paid straight into the Special “Trust” fund
    And Welfare claims were paid out of the fund.
    The balance in the fund in 1950 was almost 100 Million Pounds.
    1949 Robert Menzies became Prime Minister and he introduced Bills to amend the acts governing the National Welfare Funds.
    The Compulsory Contributions (levy) was then grouped with the Taxation Assessment and appeared as one amount on the Taxation Assessments and was paid as one straight into the Consolidated Revenue Account.
    1951-1985
    The Compulsory levy of 7.5% now included in the tax continued to be collected and placed in the Consolidated Revenue Account treated as General Revenue and spent, until 1985.
    1974-1975
    Labor Prime Minister (Gough Whitlam) abolished income test for all persons 70 years of age and over and paid pensions to all people over that age.
    1975
    Liberal Prime Minister (Malcolm Fraser) cancelled the Witham achievement of abolishing the test for all 70 years of age and over.
    1977
    Liberal Prime Minister (Malcolm Fraser) with Treasurer Philip Lynch) transferred the balance in the Welfare Fund Account (approximately $ 470.000.000) to Consolidated Revenue Account.
    1985
    Australian Labor Government repealed acts No. 39, 40, and 41 of 1945 (The National Welfare Fund Acts). Thus the funds finally ceased to exist yet the 7.5% levy continued to be collected as a proportion of the Income Tax revenue. It also introduced the (much maligned) Income and Asset Tests, thereby excluding millions of levy and tax paying Australians from receiving Social Services Pensions.
    This money these self-funded contributions paid as a percentage of the total income tax collections are today worth far more than the amount of means tested pensions paid out.
    Actuaries have calculated the non-means tested entitlement due to each retiree, today is in excess of $ 500 per week.
    This surely debunks the politician’s claim that the generation are paying a proportion of their current taxes to cover the payments made to pensioners. The obvious short fall has been swallowed by the government’s Taxation Black Hole.
    The historical summary above highlights the fact that politicians of opposing political parties each contributed to the agenda to destroy the entitlement as it was intended why?
    When it clearly would not have been the will of the people.
    While Party Politicians are controlled by a few people who are hidden from public view yet are open to Manipulation and Outright Corruption, there can be no certainty of the payment of pensions.
    Only a majority of truly Independent representatives can bring about a change from Government under corporate control, to Government for the People, of the People, by the People.
    Just because a cabal of political miscreants become so GREEDY and they change the way a tax looks in the Ledgers,
    IN NO WAY REMOVES THE FACT THAT THIS TAX IS TILL COLLECTED AND IS SO COLLECTED STILL TO THIS DAY TO PROVIDE FOR THE SUPPLY AND CONTINUATION OF THE OLD AGE PENSION.
    A STIPEND TO THE ELDERLY CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY WHO HAVE WORKED FOR DECADES OF THEIR LIVES TO BUILD A NATION AND HAVE FROM WORKING DAY ONE OF THEIR LIVES, BEEN PAYING 7% PLUS OF THEIR TAXES DIRECTLY TOWARDS THIS PENSION.
    The old age pension is not a privilege;
    Is not a right;
    Is not a gift;
    Is not even welfare;
    The Old Age Pension is an asset;
    Owned and accrued by each Australian Citizen who has funded this asset from their very own purse.
    The governments of the day were employed to amass, secure, invest and manage a fund that in its first 5 years bulged to almost
    100.000.000 Pounds (am amount in that day that equated in that day in this day’s dollars and cents, to approximately AU $240 million give or take a million or two).
    They did amass, secure, invest and manage and the figures were colossal and frightening to them and hence they conspired to hide them back into the Consolidated Revenue Bucket and to this day, the bucket has been brimming with a 7.5% tax collected specifically and only, for the Old Age Pension.
    No young Australians! You are not paying for the welfare of Baby boomers, you are paying for yourselves, new immigrants, the needy in society requiring social services and welfare, dole recipients and the bludgers,
    BUT YOU ARE NOT PAYING FOR THE OLD PENSION OF ELDERLY AUSTRALIANS WHO HAVE WORKED ALL THEIR LIVES IN THIS COUNTRY AND PAID THEIR DUE FAIR SHARE OF TAXES.
