One thing you can be absolutely sure of, globally, there will be a huge number of outraged Greens and warming alarmists because Australia has dumped it’s carbon tax.
This as the saying goes really is a double whammy, Australian PM Tony Abbott is a politician who has actually kept his word and dumped the hugely unsuccessful and deeply unpopular Carbon Tax, that Labor PM Julia Gillard promised voters she would never introduce, and then promptly broke her word.
The Carbon Tax was ill conceived, it generated virtually no revenue because of its negative impact on productivity and led directly to the downfall of the Gillard Labor/Green coalition, so it wasn’t all bad really.
Alarm bells will be sounding across the Green world as those that believe that crippling Green taxation will allow the human race to select a climate of its own choosing, can see their belief system about to come crashing down. In the immortal words of EU Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard “A world you like. With a climate you like“, delusional thinking even by 15th Century standards, frankly bizarre in the 21st Century.
The response from the Green rent seekers, crony capitalists, left wing politicians and others complicit in the AGW scam has been, well what you would expect really: Read the rest of this entry
Julia Gillard’s Labor regime in Australia is in deep political trouble because Gillard lied to voters, when she was elected Gillard promised she would not implement a carbon tax, a promise she promptly broke.
Gillard is no different from any other politician, it’s all about power, and the way Gillard managed to hang on to power was to do a deal with the Australian Green Party, the price of this deal a Carbon Tax and Gillard reneging on her promise to voters.
The Carbon Tax has been popular with voters, about as popular as a skunk in an elevator, 65% of Australian voters are against it, and despite Gillard offering bribes to business and voters the carbon tax is showing no sign of becoming popular anytime soon. The Labor party suffered a massive defeat in the March 2012 Queensland elections, and currently polling indicates a similar outcome is very likely in the Federal Election this coming September.

Julia Gillards minority government and their Green supporters dream of a carbon tax became a reality on July 1st, to the detriment of Australia’s economy and people.
The Greening of Australia has seen the real face of Green environmentalism, which has shown it self to be every bit as totalitarian as any communist regime. Christine Milne, deputy leader of the Australian Green party wants “to punish newspapers which publish articles sceptical of global warming and critical of the Gillard Government.“.
The ghosts of dictators past must be dancing for joy, Australia, a country that has always stood up for freedom and resisted tyrants like Adolf Hitler is having its very own freedoms eroded from within by the Green followers of climate religion. In the middle ages people were punished for being sceptical of the Catholic Church’s teachings, in the communist/socialist totalitarian regimes of the 20th Century people critical of the government were also punished, these are exactly the same draconian measures that Green environmentalists want.

Imagine you are watching the news and a report comes on TV about a country where to criticise a policy of the government results in a crippling fine that would finish your business, a country where to mention a law in anything but a positive light would cause the full force of the state apparatus to descend upon you.
North Korea maybe? Syria or Iran?
The answer is Australia where after years of Green madness Julia Gillard’s Labor government with the support of the Australian Green party have forced through a deeply unpopular and unwanted carbon tax, just as the IPCC have come out and said, er sorry guys but we are not really sure that CO2 has any impact on global temperatures anymore.
Australian Green Socialists have sought to control the media, in July the Green party leader Christine Milne demanded political censorship and punishment for dissent for the media to the enthusiastic applause from an audience of party faithful.
Now the Gillard/Milne Animal Farm dream of a government controlled state has taken a step closer: Read the rest of this entry
Australia has committed economic suicide, a country heavily dependent on fossil fuels for both energy and export, has during a deepening global recession introduced a carbon tax, which translates into a tax on everything.
Tony Abbot the opposition leader said “I am giving you the most definite commitment any politician can give that this tax will go. This is a pledge in blood this tax will go.”
Latest polls show 70% of Australian voters against the carbon tax that Gillard said she would never introduce, while unpopular with voters the carbon tax has received support and applause from warmists around the world, that don’t have to live with the economic consequences: Read the rest of this entry
Tony Blair, duplicitous socialist slime ball and a man prone to starting the odd war on completely fictitious evidence has naturally found a new career where duplicity, lying and fictitious evidence are a way of life, the Church of Climatology.
The same Tony Blair, who after Climategate wiped out the COP15 Synod in Copenhagen said: “The world must take action on climate change…even if the science is not correct“.
The same Tony Blair who is currently touring the world by first class ticket promoting the Church of Climatology, disregarding the Green advice he promotes that flying cattle class is more eco-friendly than first class: Read the rest of this entry
