Climate Commission in Wonderland

You would have to wonder what they are smoking when Australia's Climate Commission says that investing in green energy will stave off catastrophic global warming . and we will have an opportunity to tap into an "emerging global market". China is now providing virtually all the green energy technology to Australia and as this current government is presiding over an unprecedented dismantling of manufacturing in this country it is hard to see much "tapping" going on. How much will Australia's sacrifice really achieve when China is going full blast with business as usual with promises to look at a carbon tax in the future, like the local pub with the "Free Beer Tomorrow" sign and just as believable.
An email doing the rounds at the moment is pretty much on point.
China today ...........

Some hard facts on China

China has 19% of the world's population(Australia is .33%), but consumes

53% of the world's cement

48% of the world's iron ore

47% of the world's coal

.... and the majority of just about every other major commodity.

In 2010, China produced 11 times more steel than the United States

New World Record: China made and sold 18 million vehicles in 2010.




There are more pigs in China than in the next 43 pork producing nations combined.




China currently has the world's fastest train and the world's largest high-speed rail network.




China is currently the number one producer in the world of wind and solar power. But don't use it themselves. While they manufacture 80% of the world's solar panels,


They install less than 5% and,


build a new coal fired power station every week. In 1 year they


turn on more new coal powered electricity than Australia 's total output.





China currently controls more than 90% of the total global supply of rare earth elements.





In the past 15 years, China has moved from 14th place to 2nd place


in the world in published scientific research articles.





China now possesses the fastest supercomputer on the entire globe.





At the end of March 2011, China accumulated US$3.04 trillion


in foreign currency reserves - the largest stockpile on the entire globe.





Chinese consume 50,000 cigarettes every second!





They are already the largest carbon dioxide emitter and their output will rise 70% by 2020


So we're saving the planet are we LITTLE vegemites????





THE THREE STOOGES, BUT WE AREN'T LAUGHING!!


YOU BLOODY IDIOTS; YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING, YOU ARE WASTING YOUR TIME AND OURS, IT WILL NOT MAKE ONE IOTA OF DIFFERENCE WHAT WE DO IN AUSTRALIA OR ANYWHERE ELSE FOR THAT MATTER ALL YOU ARE DOING IS INCREASING OUR COST OF LIVING AND MAKING OUR MANUFACTURERS UNCOMPETITIVE IN THE WORLD MARKET, WITH YOUR IDIOTIC CARBON TAX, WHEN COUNTRIES LIKE CHINA ARE GROWING AND CONSUMING AT THESE EXTRAORDINARY RATES! WAKE UP!!!!!

    Oh, right. So Australia will start to corner the market on wind turbines and displace the imported Norwegian ones. Then we'll develop really high efficiency cheap solar panels which will be fabricated in huge quantities by Australia's long-gone semiconductor industry, which will make it pointless to import them from China. Sure.

    Juliar Dullard & Co really do exist in some bizarre parallel universe which has no connection with ours. The sooner they and their punishing and utterly useless Carbon Tax are gone, the sooner we can start undoing their damage to our country.
