Labor to push carbon agenda!

Surprise !Surprise! Labor says that following the dazzling success at Cancun we are all going to get the carbon tax we we promised we were not going to have before the election.



 The government hopes to use the moral pressure of the UN gains in Cancun to persuade the Coalition and the Greens in the Senate. The Greens said yesterday Australia should fast-track the development of a carbon price mechanism with the flexibility to lift emissions reduction targets beyond 5 per cent.
"Moral pressure from the gains at Cancun" will be worth sweet Fanny Adams when it gets to the opposition benches and they dust off the  "great big new tax" mantra.  

Greens deputy leader Christine Milne said the only way to keep the momentum going was for Australia to take much more ambitious pledges on cuts to the climate talks in Durban next year.
"The Australian government has no choice but to leave behind the inexcusably weak 5-25 per cent target range and lift it to the Bali roadmap agreement of 25-40 per cent," Ms Milne said. "Australia introducing an ambitious carbon price in the second half of 2011 will help deliver a solid agreement in Durban."
The Looney Greens are completely predictable in suggesting we should raise the ante and be stupider than everyone else in this sorry farce.
Of course Gillard says we can expect rapidly rising power prices if we don't have a power tax -  upping the cost of base load power with a carbon tax and paying 6 to 10 times the wholesale rate for "green energy" will obviously cause prices to fall in this Mad Hatter's world we have fallen into.  Up is down and down is up. We should brush up on suitable terminology for our new world.
Was brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
   I rather feel that the mimsy and the borogroves mating habits may have been disturbed by Global warming and the slithy toves emissions are a real worry , both of which could obviously be   prime topics  for  tax-payer funded  research papers to be published in Nature .

  1. Really, your planet hating attitude is quite appalling. It's quite obvious to anyone with any common sense that a carbon tax is the only way of moving forward on this issue.

    You attack our sassy PM for breaking a promise she made, implying that she was being deceitiful. But I think it was one of her most savvy political moves, and an empowering subversion of the democratic paradigm.

    And so what if people have to pay much more for power? Frankly, it will be good for them.

  2. Why you would think I hate the planet because I do not subscribe to an incorrect theory based on faulty measurements. What I find appalling is the smug arrogance of the left-wing intellectual dimwits who spout such nonsense. Why worry about whether poor people can pay their power bills when there is a planet to save and they can all sip their cappuccinos and tell each other how much greener and cleverer they are than the stupid masses. "Empowering subversion of the democratic paradigm" is pretentious meaningless twaddle. I have always found that people who can't explain themselves without resorting to such obfuscation really don't have anything worthwhile to say.
