IN these pages we have already considered the lie of no carbon tax under any government that she leads.
We also mentioned that there was an inner lie within that statement because she actually intends to tax colourless, essential carbon dioxide and not the inferred grimy, gritty, sooty "carbon."
She has also stated that we are bigger emitters of carbon (dioxide) than the USA. This is not true and is shown to be untrue by the body she says that she relies on for the science, the IPCC's 4thAR. (See also.)
Professor Robert M Carter has also pointed out Ten dishonest slogans about global warming used by the Gillard Government.
On QandA she said China was closing down coal fired power stations. This was a lie by omission. She omitted to say that they are closing down small, real-pollution emitting coal-fired power stations but are opening bigger, more carbon-dioxide using power stations.
The plan, developed by the nation’s top two energy policymaking bodies—the Office of the National Energy Leading Group and the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC)—sets forth concrete targets for decommissioning older and smaller plants. It strongly supports a 2006 NDRC notice that called for a comprehensive check on facility closures over the past seven years and also made public a list of all plants slated to close through 2010.World Environment News:
The energy policy-setting National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) said in a statement posted on its Web site (www.ndrc.gov.cn) that to build a 300 megawatt power station, 240 MW of capacity must be decommissioned.
For larger, more efficient new stations the amount of old capacity that must be put out of service is lower -- 420 MW for a new 600 MW station and just 600 MW for a 1 gigawatt generator.
China aims to elimate small generating plants with 50 GW of capacity, around 8 percent of the country's total, by the end of the decade. This includes 7 to 10 GW of fuel oil-fired capacity.
Coal powered plants with capacity under 50 megawatts (MW) will be ordered to close by 2010, as will 100 MW generators that have been in operation for 20 years or more.
Julia Gilliard's performance was reviewed by the MSM with no mention of this lie of omission
Michelle Grattan (Here) Michelle mentioned "broadcaster Alan Jones's description of her as Ju-Liar." Actually, Michelle, if you listened, Jones asked did she know that people out there were starting to call her Ju-Liar?
Phillip Coorey also omitted that part of Ms Gillard's performance here and here
Over at the Australian, Dennis Shanahan - "The ambush of Gillard, with no warning from the program, which claims to provide unscripted questions from "you" the audience, was worse television terrorism than the Seven Network's "shit happens" ambush of Tony Abbott by Mark Riley." Mark Riley fabricated the news by careful editting, QandA goes live to Air. Dennis also missed Julia's lie about the China Power stations.
