Arctic Ice To Disappoint Catastrophists!

The summer Arctic ice melt has had the Warmist doom-and-gloomers   salivating at the possibility that the 2007 melt would be exceeded. However the ice has been melting very slowly recently and although no one can predict exactly what will happen, it seems that a new summer low will not be reached.

















And a magnified image.


UK PM (Borrowing $5 Billion per Week) - Supports Gillard!

UK PM Cameron is supporting Gillard's Carbon Tax initiative which is not surprising as he has similar economic credentials with the UK Government borrowing $5 billion every week to survive.While plunging his country into debt this dimwit is providing billions for "climate change adaption" overseas while at home shutting down 24/7 power-stations in favour of an airy fairy $200 billion program of wind generation, a technology  which provided no power in the coldest part of the UK winter and works intermittently other times. Gillard's financial acumen is similar with the Government paying billions to shut down one of  our cheapest power generators and ten billion dollars to scrap Telstra's working copper network built over many decades.

New/Old/Fake/Tough/Teary/Steely-eyed Julia to Stop Rip-Offs!

Julia to stop rip-offs by Aussie companies - the  Labor Government does not want competitors in the rip-off industry.
The tough ( really just a home-town girl) Julia is making "no apologies" for the sweeping powers the Green Gestapo will have in policing the unpopular carbon tax!

Here Come the Carbon Cops!

Details have been released about the proposed carbon tax giving the Government sweeping powers to track down evil-doers who are poisoning the atmosphere with  the plant food known as CO2 . Major companies will have to wait for the knock on the door from the Green Gestapo and interrogation about their heinous crimes.


A NEW carbon cop will be given sweeping powers to enter company premises, compel individuals to give self-incriminating evidence and copy sensitive records under a carbon tax package that will force about 60,000 businesses to pay 6c a litre extra for fuel.
The tough new powers of the Clean Energy Regulator were included in the fine detail of the carbon tax package released yesterday, which enshrines national emissions cuts of 12 million tonnes of carbon dioxide a year after 2016, if the government of the day rejects targets proposed by its Climate Change Authority.
Fraud or attempts to subvert the scheme can be punished by up to 10 years in jail or fines of $1.1 million for corporations.
Inspectors working for the regulator will be able to obtain warrants to search premises of companies covered by the act and search or examine any activity on site as well as copy documents.
The regulator will have the authority to demand information from company officers even if it could incriminate them.

Extreme Climate Events caused by Global Warming that is not happening because of Sulfates!

Phil Jones and Mike McCracken in a Climategate email exchange show the contempt they have for the public with the alternative theory ready to explain why the current "settled science" theory was bogus. When warming stopped Global Warming became Climate Change and the latest scare is that every major climatic event is classified as "extreme" and caused by the Global Warming that isn't happening because of sulfate pollution!

Wind Farms Blow up Electricity Costs in NSW

Electricity companies are being forced to include expensive and unreliable wind power in their generation mix and slug consumers for double the cost oc coal power.
Modern wind energy plant in rural scenery.
"This energy is not reliable and could never provide a baseload electricity source. But the big companies are obliged to build these projects by law," Mr Freund said. "The price for wind farms is passed on to the customer - but it is done in an invisible way."An ACIL Tasman report comparing the current long-run marginal costs for power generators revealed the difference between coal and wind energy. The 2008 report showed that by this year, wind energy projects would cost the equivalent of $97.62 per megawatt hour (MWh) compared with $45.99 for black coal.

Wind Farms Making Farmers Sick!

Wind generators ,those bird-chomping, bat-crunching, taxpayer-fleecing monstrosities  are now causing farmers health problems. They are not only a blight upon the landscape apparently they are also a blight upon nearby farmers.

Five Point Plan to Kill the Australian Economy.

Viv Forbes of the Carbon Sense Coalition attacks the senseless increases in electricity costs under the banner of Global Warming.

Climate Fat Cats Get New Home!

Nothing is too good for these seekers of solutions to the non-problem of Global Warming and it will warm the hearts of those in the ever-increasing elective surgery queues that $20 million has been allocated to the worthy cause of housing these Climate drones in suitable digs. The really nice touch of providing electric car charging facilities for non-existent electric cars indicates that the new building is "Green" and therefore the expenditure is  justified.

Rip-off-your-neighbour Scheme to Continue in Queensland!

Solar panel
The Bligh Government has indicated it will continue it's solar rebate scheme in Queensland paying 100,000 of the 2 million consumers 44 cents per Kwhr for electricity worth 2.4 cents wholesale.  The current bunch of pollies running Queensland are not the sharpest tools in the shed! Of course the Government is not paying these ridiculous prices as they are forcing those 95% of consumers without panels to pay them , included in their rocketing power bills!
  This is what our shoe leather- burning Glorious Leader calls our Clean Energy Future (for the lucky ones).
Anna Bligh seems to be intent of creating a poison pill for the expected  Campbell Newman Government  next year , similar to the 1.8 billion solar nasty Labor left for O'Farrell in NSW.

Huge Swing against Gillard in her Own Seat!

Julia's problems with the electorate are exemplified by the way voters in her own seat have turned against her.
A massive 18%  swing against her has been recorded which if repeated throughout Victoria would cause the loss of 14 seats.

GOP Congress Panel moves to Bar Climate Funding!

A Republican-dominated Congress panel is attempting to bar foreign assistance related to the Climate Change scam saying sensibly that the US must prioritise it's resources. With the US economy in dire straits and the Government wishing to lift the debt level is is hard to justify sending any funds overseas for a genuine reason let alone "Climate Change".

Hey, Big Spender

Political Cartoons by Ken CatalinoThe latest report from the  Obanana Republic is an impasse in negotiations on raising the debt limit with the Republicans standing by the ridiculous  ( to the Democrats) idea that spending cuts should at least match the increase in borrowing- a principle that is anathema to the big spending Obama.
The GOP-controlled Congress has a clear mandate to cancel Obama's credit card with the large conservative vote in the last election .

Excuses,excuses and more excuses.

Because even visually handicapped Frederick can now see that the climate model predictions are bullsh*t we are seeing a range of excuses for their failure ignoring the obvious one! These excuses are immediately being treated as gospel akin to the Laws of Gravity  by the Unscientific American and other such rags and then broadcast through the MSM gaining more and more veracity in the retelling. The latest one is that the Global warming is actually happening but we can't measure it because the nasty Chinese are emitting sulphur dioxide in copious quantities .
Despite significant pyrotechnics and air travel disruption last year, the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajokull simply didn't put that many aerosols into the stratosphere. In contrast, the eruption of Mount Pinatubo in 1991, put 10 cubic kilometers of ash, gas and other materials into the sky, and cooled the planet for a year. Now, research suggests that for the past decade, such stratospheric aerosols—injected into the atmosphere by either recent volcanic eruptions or human activities such as coal burning—are slowing down global warming.
This follows the news that the sea level is rising but we can't measure it properly because the earth is changing shape so we have to add a phantom adjustment so we are still all properly frightened out of our wits!
Basically the computer models are always correct - it is the real world that is getting it wrong!

Serious Problems with Models - Sea Level Paper debunks Ridiculous CSIRO Predictions.

An Australian expert,Phil Watson , has written a peer-reviewed paper showing that sea levels which have been rising naturally since the Little Ice Age are now decelerating . This agrees with data from US researchers Houston and  Dean also using real data from tide gauges. Satellite data from Envirosat also shows sea levels have not risen for a number of years . With no temperature increase in 15 years and sea levels defying computer models how much more do we need to dump the whole global warming scam.It also shows up CSIRO for the useless propaganda machine it is for it's faulty sea level predictions  and slavish adherence to the AGW line.

Gillard's White Elephants!

In a preview of where Australia is heading with the twits that govern us the illustration on the Government Clean Energy website is of a graveyard of solar generators that are not being used.


Labor Heavy Predicts Carbon Calamity!

In a most embarrassing turn for the Gillard government , Morris Iemma , former Premier of NSW and prominent Labor identity says the only thing the carbon tax will change is the Government. He is voicing the concerns of many MP's who can't oppose the move and his statement may well  be made on their behalf. He says that Labor is fighting this battle on Green's turf instead of their own. This follows independent Tony Windsor's view that Gillard would lose the next election.

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Julia Gillard ,swanning around a wind farm today would do well to heed the words of George Santayana and instead of holding green-bankrupted Spain up as an example check her facts. The ambitious wind and solar experiment in Spain has been an unmitigated disaster and one which Australia should not emulate.

Monckton's Advice is Correct!

Adelaide Now must have searched for the most unflattering picture it could find of Christopher Monckton in reporting the debate.
In Canberra to campaign against the carbon tax, Lord Monckton offered the Coalition no comfort, declaring its multi-billion-dollar policy futile.
"Yes, the Coalition should, in my opinion, ditch it because there is no need to take any action about carbon dioxide at all," he told the National Press Club.
The divisive figure, who yesterday suffered the humiliation of being outed by the British Parliament for falsely claiming membership of the House of Lords, said carbon dioxide played no role in causing global warming, and carbon dioxide from industry, fossil fuels and farms "on any view is not a pollutant, it is plant and tree food".
Monckton is right and Abbott should jettison the direct action policy as the Coalition is fighting with their hands tied when they cannot point out the futility of the 5% target compared to China's huge increase in emissions without contradicting their own policy. They would only lose the trendy inner city voters and they are voting Green anyway .
Abbott did just that in talking about China earlier and then had to spend an embarrassing  day back-tracking.
It is time to come clean and again call it "crap".

After all the Gloom - Bring Me Sunshine!

This brightened my day!
 

Major Union Breaks Ranks With Labor

In a move showing how widespread dissatisfaction with the Carbon tax is in the Australian community even the Electrical Trades Union has rejected  the carbon tax package. When unions start to defect it shows that Julia Gillard cannot even keep her own house in order.



A BIG blue-collar union has broken ranks and says it cannot support the Gillard government's carbon tax package because of the ''total absence'' of a jobs plan for the struggling Latrobe Valley.
Electrical Trades Union state secretary Dean Mighell said while the union supported pricing carbon, lack of a detailed plan for new industry or assistance to workers meant there was a risk of a ''massive social impact'' from the likely closure of Hazelwood power station.
Mr Mighell said about 800 direct jobs would be lost if Hazelwood closed while the loss of indirect jobs could flow into the thousands. He also warned that shutting the plant, without alternative base-load power, increased the risk of brownouts in Victoria.


 

Respect the Science!

Further to the previous post Ziggy Switkowski launches his own broadside on the subject of the government insulting our intelligence with the term " Carbon pollution". Pharmacies are not labelled drug dealers even though they dispense drugs derived from heroin and other illegal substances.

For Julia Gillard - Carbon is a solid and it is not pollution.



Carbon (play /ˈkɑrbən/) is the chemical element with symbol C and atomic number 6. As a member of group 14 on the periodic table, it is nonmetallic and tetravalent—making four electrons available to form covalent chemical bonds. There are three naturally occurring isotopes, with 12C and 13C being stable, while 14C is radioactive, decaying with a half-life of about 5,730 years.[9] Carbon is one of the few elements known since antiquity.[10][11] The name "carbon" comes from Latin carbo, coal.
There are several allotropes of carbon of which the best known are graphitediamond, and amorphous carbon.[12] The physical properties of carbon vary widely with the allotropic form. For example, diamond is highly transparent, while graphite isopaque and black. Diamond is among the hardest materials known, while graphite is soft enough to form a streak on paper (hence its name, from the Greek word "to write"). Diamond has a very low electrical conductivity, while graphite is a very goodconductor. Under normal conditions, diamond has the highest thermal conductivity of all known materials.
All carbon allotropes are solids under normal conditions with graphite being the most thermodynamically stable form.


File:Diamond-and-graphite-with-scale.jpg
Note that carbon as diamond or graphite is a solid not a gas. Carbon in the first form is highly prized by the female of the species and they do not regard it as pollution in any way.
Carbon Dioxide
A colourless gas which makes up about 0.04% of the atmosphere. It is denser than air. It is toxic only above about 6% concentration, but it does not support respiration or combustion. It is excreted as a waste product of aerobic metabolism, and is carried to the veins, mainly as hydrogen carbonate (bicarbonate) ions. Expired air contains about 4% carbon dioxide. 
 

As we breathe out carbon dioxide it is not a pollutant!
What you see coming out of a smokestack is not carbon dioxide  because it  is invisible and the usual photos show cooling towers which only emit steam.
So Julia what are you talking about when you say "carbon pollution".

Energy Providers could go Broke!

The Australian Government has moved into a full Orwellian mode with the Energy Minister now in charge of shutting down Energy and  taxpayer-funded carbon tax information ads full of disinformation .
The soon to be Minister for Blackouts Martin Ferguson has indicated that 3 billion dollars will not be available for closing Hazelwood and payment will be "modest" ensuring that never again will major players build power stations in this country.
Contrary to what observers may have gleaned by this lame Government's record Ferguson says there there is no "bottomless pit of taxpayer dollars". This is a remarkable discovery and should be conveyed to Julia Gillard as soon as possible as she seems unaware of it! The Labor Government is taking a chainsaw to the low cost energy pillars supporting our economy. After financially assaulting the energy providers with a plan to put them out of business  the Government is offering loans to keep them afloat because we need them! Figure that one out.

Gillard Down for the Count.

The latest Herald/Neilsen poll has Labor dropping further from the record low last week. Primary support for Labor is now a  disastrous 26% and in the two party-preferred the Coalition leads 61% to 39% . Tony Abbott leads Julia Gillard by 11% as the preferred PM. Any election on these figures would decimate Labor.

At Least the Sceptics are not Hypocrites!

A Swinburne Professor's research has shown that hardcore environmentalists and sceptics are using the same amount of power and water.

ANY bid to get households to reduce their environmental impact via the carbon tax is doomed to fail as long as incentives are not being offered, a new study shows.
Swinburne University Professor Peter Newton, who examined the behaviour of 1200 Melburnians, found that beliefs in climate change meant little in practice, with hardcore environmentalists and climate change sceptics in his study using the same amount of energy and water.

Gillard Has a Guy Problem!

Polling data is showing Julia Gillard is turning men off in particular with women more inclined to vote for her although support for her has fallen with  the fair sex as well. An unpopular PM with unpopular policies is a combination the ALP will have to address and soon.

They neither sow nor reap, They have neither storehouse nor barn, and they get paid heaps!!

Bullock Cart - Transport System - History of Indian VillagesThe Green philosophy seems to be to return us to the dark ages of the village economy with super soft toilet paper replaced by a stick, and cooking over a bio-renewable cow-dung fire but the change would have one great advantage -it would rid us of  the burden of green bureaucrats. A two day conference on the effect of half a degree of warming on the mating habits of the purple dung beetle would not normally be high on the list of tasks around  a village in survival mode.
The bloated green public service is becoming larger by the day with now over 23,000 public "servants" employed in the Green Bureaucracy with more to come . The word "servant" is a misnomer as servants do not normally go around micro-managing  their masters making green tape  as big a problem as  red tape .

Goodbye Julia!

The people have spoken in the Roy Morgan Poll , the first poll since all the details of the carbon tax were released and the Coalition has increased its huge lead further to a record  two-party preferred 60.5% to Labor's 39.5% .Labor's options are all dreadful and there seems no way back other than toughing it out. Getting rid of Gillard will somewhat blunt the "liar" charge but the combined albatrosses of the carbon tax and perceived instability caused by leadership change will probably leave Labor in the same position. Either way Gillard goes now or at the first electoral opportunity which could happen early with the possibility of a by-election  or one of the independents growing some cojones and voting with the opposition.

Half Million Dollars per Day down the Toilet!

Sydney's 2 billion dollar desalination plant needs a half million dollars per day to stand idle-  a tribute to the previous inept Labor Government and now a burden on future generations. Labor listened to false prophet Tim Flannery and fellow climate catastrophists that the shortage of water was caused by global warming and huge expenditure was required to avert disaster.

While Julia Fiddles China Burns ( More Coal that is)

China and Peabody are combining to develop a huge coal mine that will produce 50 million tons of coal per year with with China's increases in  emissions completely dwarfing any effect of  Gillard's nonsensical carbon tax which probably won't reduce emissions anyway!

U.S.-based Peabody Energy Corp. said Thursday it will pursue a giant coal-mine project in China's western Xinjiang region in partnership with the local provincial government, one of the most demonstrative signs of rising foreign interest in the resource-rich but restive area.
Plans call for a surface mine that will produce some 50 million metric tons of coal annually to feed China's energy needs, St. Louis-based Peabody said Thursday in a joint statement with its partner, the government of the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. On hand for a ceremony to market their "framework agreement" were Peabody Chairman and Chief Executive Officer 

A Nation of Bio-ethical Kitchen Renovators?

Barnaby Joyce has the Greens firmly in his sights as he defends his regional Australia electorate and makes special reference to Sarah Hanson-Young and her inner-city ,trendy,far-left economy -killing views. Normally no one sensible would even bother with her but as Bob Brown sits on the right hand of Julia Almighty the Green crackpot views are becoming the norm at the highest level in this country.

Carbon Cops are now a Reality!

Hundreds of "carbon cops" will police carbon offenders in Gillard's Brave New World but will also have to police themselves!


HUNDREDS of "carbon cops" will police compliance with the carbon tax and will have the power to inspect premises, take companies to court and impose financial penalties.

The spokesman said the regulator would be responsible for educating companies on administrative arrangements, assessing emissions data to determine liability and operating a registry of emissions.
"The Clean Energy Regulator will be a statutory authority with substantial powers to enforce the carbon pricing mechanism," the spokesman said. He said the regulator would have the power to initiate audits of emissions, inspect premises, impose penalties and initiate court proceedings.
The government's carbon tax documents, released on Sunday, showed companies would face an emissions charge if their "emissions obligations were not met through the surrender of eligible emissions units".

Carbon tax could 'bugger' Australia!

A leading business figure used colorful language in condemning the carbon tax as it relied on technology that does not exist.


A LEADING businessman has warned that the Gillard government's carbon policy could "bugger the country", joining a chorus against the tax, as consumer sentiment sinks.
A LEADING businessman has warned that the Gillard government's carbon policy could "bugger the country", joining a chorus against the tax, as consumer sentiment sinks.
University of Queensland chancellor and former Suncorp chairman John Story said yesterday the government's carbon package relied on a "huge leap of faith", because the technology to manage a cost-effective transition to a low-carbon economy did not yet exist.
His warning followed this week's criticism of the carbon tax by media and mining mogul Kerry Stokes and fellow West Australians, resource heavyweights Andrew Forrest and Gina Rinehart.
Mr Stokes warned this week that Australia was at risk of imposing too many extra costs on industry and pricing foreign investors out of the market.

Barnaby is Brilliant! In Search of Green Jobs!

Barnaby Joyce is a maverick who has a bad habit ( for a politician) of telling it like it is and this is obvious at a Senate hearing when he quizzes an activist who heads a Climate Change Modelling Department. It is obvious why the Gillard Government is in deep trouble if this is the level of advice they are getting. Barnaby is trying to decipher the gobbledygook to find out about so-called green jobs.

Economic Self-Harm for one Four Thousandth of a Degree Gain!

It is calculated that the world will forgo .00025 of a degree of warming if we reduce our emissions by 160 million tons of CO2 by 2020 - an amount which is too small to measure with modern temperature meters.Andrew Bolt has been hammering this question for a while now and finally other journalists including Janet Albrechsen and Madonna King have quizzed Julia Gillard on it and she has refused to answer. So much for answering the hard questions! Julia is to have a Town Hall style meeting tonight and I am sure this question will arise and it will be interesting to see her dodge it.

Renewable Subsidies Too Costly said Productivity Commission! Who Cares Says Julia!

The the Government's  own Productivity Commission says that renewable subsidies are a waste of money.


LABOR is wasting money and holding back deeper cuts to carbon emissions by subsidising renewable energy schemes such as wind turbines and roof-top solar panels.
The Productivity Commission has urged that subsidies for renewable energy be scrapped with the introduction of a carbon price, saying they are extremely expensive and make any form of carbon market less efficient.

Please Explain Julia.

As Gillard desperately tours Australia trying to find gullible voters Janet Albrechtsen asks some pertinent questions on behalf of  the people of Australia .. The key questions are how will the carbon policy affect world temperatures(zilch) and what difference will cutting 160 million tons of CO2 by 2020 make when the Chinese emissions increased in the last year by 50 times that figure.

Whoops- What's another 2 Billion of Carbon Monopoly Money!

Hazelwood
Here we go already - a minor glitch in Gillard's costing of at least 2 billion which is required to replace Hazelwood power station will be funded from a magic "budget contingency" fund . Of course on present technology it would have to be gas and we don't know how expensive that will be. Of course the usual mental midgets of the Green persuasion think  solar and/or wind should be used and Victoria should only operate on sunny windy days!
I wonder if it ever crosses Gillard's mind that 2 billion would go a long way in building hospitals to solve real  problems not imaginary ones.

Bureaucrats the new Growth Industry.

The money churn created by the senseless Carbon tax will create a raft of new departments and bureaucrats all funded by the public purse. The Aussie Federal Public Service has grown by 20,000 since the Labor Government took office while all private industry tightened the belt after the GFC . These numbers will increase dramatically with  new Carbonocrats to oversea the wealth re-distribution and ensure the requisite billions are dissipated into the hungry maw of the parasitic clean energy  industry never to be seen again.

The Newspoll is Even Worse for Gillard!

In the Australian the Newspoll has the Coalition a staggering 16% ahead in two party preferred voting !
It is time for the Labor Government to be humanely put down to end it's misery!


LABOR'S support has slumped to a record low, with the Coalition at an all-time high as Tony Abbott extends his lead as preferred prime minister over Julia Gillard.
In the two-week lead-up to Sunday's release of the full details of the government's carbon tax package, Labor's primary vote fell three percentage points to a record low of 27 per cent.
Support for the Coalition rose three percentage points to 49 per cent its highest primary votes since October 2001.
Based on preference flows at the 2010 election, the Coalition leads Labor 58 per cent to 42 per cent on a two-party preferred basis.

Julia and Labor Fall Further in Polls - How Low Can She Go?

Essential Research has Labor at an abysmal 30% down 2% from last week and the Carbon tax is opposed by 53% with only 35% for it. The two-party preferred has the Coalition further in front leading Labor by 57% to 43% indicating a landslide if an election were to be held today and Tony Abbott is now the preferred Prime Minister.

Julia- What are you Saving Us From?

The disconnect from reality of the Gillard  carbon tax logic can be seen in the BOM data from the last year. The country has cooled and has had plentiful rainfall , exactly the opposite of what the climate"scientists" had predicted .

Julia's Money Merry-Go-Round

In an incredibly cynical move to shore up disastrous poll figures Australia's worst ever PM Julia Gillard has outlined her carbon tax proposal, an enormous money churning machine that will achieve absolutely no measurable change to the global temperature. Australia is now leading the Global Warming lemmings with a policy that makes one realise that the pink batt scandals and the school building disasters were all minor peccadillos compared to the latest Gillard triumph!

The Honey Trap

The poison pill of the Carbon tax is being disguised by a raft of goodies by the Gillard government which are being leaked in advance of the detailed announcement tomorrow. Upfront money for pensioners and a billion dollars for the rural sector for "carbon sequestration" and  developing "skills" for climate change whatever that means. The tax will pass as the independent princesses have done their pirouettes in front of the media scorning their conservative electorates who will wreak their vengeance at the next election.

Greens are Frauds and Hypocrites!

Sarah Hanson-Young in her chauffeur driven Comcar proposing legislation to jack up motoring costs for the less fortunate taxpayer! The Greens join a long list of hypocrites advocating hardship for the workers when like the Orwellian pigs in Animal Farm they enjoy the privileged good life they want to deny others!

Sarah Hanson-Young


THEY want to tax regular Australians out of their cars but the Greens are still being chauffeur-driven in their tax-payer funded Comcars.
Senator Christine Milne, who accrued $7527 in Comcar expenses in the past 12 months, this week said that ordinary people needed to "drive less and drive more efficiently".
The party is pushing for extra excise on petrol or to extend the carbon tax to fuel to curb motorists.
But the tough-on-driving approach did not appear to apply to Greens senator Sarah Hanson-Young yesterday.
Her Greens colleagues are also still using the Comcar chauffeur service, with leader Bob Brown leaving taxpayers with the biggest bill of $20,673 for the past 12 months.
Senator Hanson-Young, who accrued $17,260 in Comcar expenses, gave no response when asked if she thought the Greens should give up their cars in light of Senator Milne's comments.


 

Black Hole in Carbon Compensation

Henry Ergas gives the lie to claims of permanent compensation to households because much of the money raised will go overseas on carbon credits , not including the billions to be spent abroad buying useless solar and wind generation hardware to keep the Greens happy. It is about time that the Coalition jumped off the AGW bandwagon so they can properly fight this tax. A simple change of keeping their existing policy but delaying any substantive action until the US and China come on board would work politically.

Taxpayers to Pay for Carbon Tax Propaganda!

The Gillard Government is paying a million dollars of  tax-payer funds to see how people respond to the Carbon Tax gobbledygook  being foisted on us. The campaign is based on the idea that we are too stupid to see how great this new tax on everything is for us and need some psychological help . I think the basic problem for Julia is that the average Aussie is too smart to believe this junk science. Party propaganda should be paid for by the ALP not the public.

Gillard : Pandora's Box is now Open!

Julia Wheels Out the Doomsday Scare Campaign!

Gillard should realise that the Aussie public has turned off her doomsday message and after Climategate very suspicious of "scientific" predictions.


JULIA Gillard has invoked a doomsday-like scenario of metre-high sea level rises and a 2000km southward shift of Australia's climactic zones as she battles an opposition scare campaign over her proposed carbon tax.
Looking at empirical measurement , sea-level data from the Envirosat satellite shows levels falling   while CO2 emissions have increased completely disagreeing with the alarmists computer predictions.


From WUWT 

And from Realscience we have a graph of Hadcrut global temperatures



So if the Envirosat satellite shows falling sea levels and Hadcrut shows falling temperatures it is going to be hard for Gillard to sell her apocalyptic vision  of Australia without a carbon tax!
