"Senate passes Carbon Tax". We have lost a battle but, with your help, we will win the war.
Please pass this on.
The passage of the carbon tax bills today is no reason for celebration. It is a step back towards the dark ages.
Just a few generations ago, humans lived in a "green" world. There was no coal, oil or gas providing light, heat, transport and traction power.
In this green utopia, wood provided heat for cooking fires and forests were felled for charcoal for primitive metallurgy; farmers used wooden ploughs and harvested grain with sickles and flails; the nights were lit using candles and whale oil; rich people used wind and water power to grind cereals; horses and bullocks moved coaches, wagons and troops; there was no refrigeration and salt was the only preservative for meat.
Towns were tiny as the whole family was needed to work the farm. For most people, the daylight hours were filled with heavy labour to produce, preserve and transport food. There was no surplus to support opera, bureaucracy or academia.
Humanity was relieved from this life of unrelenting toil by carbon energy – steam engines and electricity, machines, tractors, cars, ships and planes. Prosperity and longevity soared.
Today the pagan green religion celebrates the first step in their long campaign to destroy industrial society and reduce population.
They should be careful what they wish for.
For example, just a few more bitter winters in Britain will see their wind powered lights going out.
A British observer once said of the Whitlam government: "Any fool can bugger up Britain, but it takes real genius to bugger up Australia".
The Gillard-Green Government is showing the sort of genius needed to dim the lights in the lucky country.
UN IPCC – Serious Science or Green Activism?
For over two decades, the IPCC has told the world that man is causing dangerous global warming. It also claimed that all of its reports are based on peer reviewed scientific literature. However Canadian investigative journalist Donna Lamframboise documents a far different story in her new book -"The Delinquent Teenager" She found the IPCC riddled by activists relying on lots of magazine articles and press releases from activist organisations like World Wildlife Fund and Greenpeace. Listen to this report on her hard hitting new book:
The New Global Warming Crisis
Solar Tax Needed
Solar Tax Needed
No one has noticed a new global warming crisis.
Since July, temperatures in Australia have soared by over six degrees centigrade. If current trends continue, we can expect another three degrees of warming by Christmas.
This rapid warming has caused massive environmental disruption – alpine snow has melted, birds are migrating, there is an epidemic of weeds and we can expect more storms, cyclones, floods, mosquitoes and solar radiation burns.
This is far more serious than the UN's forecast of a piddling 1-2 degrees of warming over the next hundred years or so.
What caused this dangerous new global warming?
The old people called it "summer".
Summer heat is generated by a slight increase in the solar radiation received at the surface, caused by cyclic changes in the positions of the sun in the sky. It is obvious that longer term solar cycles also dominate the climate. Even "The Farmer's Almanac" knew that cycles in moon, planets and sunspots could be used to forecast the weather.
However, since people started to let computers do their thinking, knowledge of climate cycles has been lost. We now let computer nerds and taxaholics tell us that the climate is controlled by minute traces of a harmless invisible natural gas exhaled with every breath, generated in every bushfire and exhausted wherever coal, oil and gas are burned. Some even believe that a tax on carbon dioxide will cool the world.
It's time we abandoned climate Cassandras with costly computers. There was more sense in "The Farmer's Almanac".
And a Solar Tax on the sun to reduce warming makes as much sense as a Carbon Tax on the air to induce cooling.
Green Insanity in Britain
Jo Nova reports: "At least 2,700 people are dying in Britain every year because they are unable to adequately heat their houses, according to the interim findings of a report commissioned by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC)".
Insanity in Britain
"With people dying from the cold because they can’t afford enough home heating, the government is deliberately raising heating costs in an attempt to make it slightly colder outside" Tom Nelson
