Bob Brown doesn't understand or is devious.

This morning on ABC's Insiders, Bob Brown said that Tony Abbott's proposed tax cuts would cut at least $15 billion from Revenue. He went on to say that therefore Abbott would have to cut jobs from Hospitals, Schools....
"Tony Abbott is aiming to put the burden onto households. And if those figures your panel was talking about are true, bang goes - he says, he's going to cut government services. Well bang goes 40,000 or 50,000 teachers, nurses.."

Does he not understand that Hospitals and schools are State responsibilities? How long has he been in Parliament now?
"Put all those together you're looking at minimum $15 billion-a-year missing from revenue. And that's going to be a cut to government services. It's got to be schools, hospitals, railways, defence."
One out of four, Bob. Defence is a Federal Government Responsibility. The other three, schools, hospitals, railways  are State Responsibilities.

He also said that the carbon dioxide tax would have negligible effect on the rich coal mining companies but later in the interview said some of those same companies would have to close down as that is the purpose of the tax.
Oh, look Barrie, all the estimates of the impact of a pricing scheme like this on coal are down there in 1, 2, 3 per cent on their profit line. 
Later Barrie said:
But when you say negligible impact do you also say then that no coal mines will closed?
 BOB BROWN: I would expect that in the future we are going to see some of the most polluting enterprises in the country have a struggle. That's the nature.
Bob also said that we were way behind Germany and China. Wake up and smell the roses, Bob.

Dr David Evans, who was a climate change adviser to the Howard and Rudd governments, said it would take less than five days at current emission levels for China and India to spew out 100 megatonnes of CO2 - the approximate amount that Australia aims to save annually by 2020. By that time, Australia has pledged to cut emissions by between five and 15 per cent relative to 2000 levels.
(Dr Evans will be touring with Lord Monckton, speaking in Perth 4th July, Newcastle 6th July, Sydney 7th July, North Sydney 8th July and at an Anti-carbon dioxide tax rally in Hyde Park at noon on the 9th July.)

Bob Brown closed by saying that Tony Abbott doesn't understand consensus. Do you, Bob? You have often mentioned the "scientific consensus" which is an oxymoron!

2GB's Ray Hadley describes Bob Brown's plans as lunacy:


  1. We might be angry with Bob Brown and Julia Gillard but my question is directed to anyone associated with the Liberal Party who happens upon this comment:

    When will the Liberal Party have the courage to 'come out' and make public what I for one (and many others) know - that senior members of the Liberal Party know "AGW is a complete fraud"?

    Their colleagues in the National Party have told them. They have been handed the incontrovertible evidence that the IPCC and its antecedents have corrupted climate science. They know that so-called climate scientists and all their hangers on continue the scam in order to continue the veritable flood of grants money out of the Dept of Climate Change and Environment. That the atmospheric concentration of CO2 is a consequence of temperature change - not a cause. etc etc etc.

    Does the Liberal Party have the courage to stand up to Malcolm Turnbull and his entourage? He has refused the offer to be presented with the evidence. Accordingly he is guilty of covering up his real agenda until he allows the evidence to be placed before him such that he can cross-examine the presenters. But NO! He prefers to put his head in the sand because to do otherwise would be to admit that he made a massive mis-judgement on so-called climate change

    Come clean Liberal Party!! Failing to declare the truth is to be complicit on the lies. If you aspire to leading this Nation show the voters courage. They will reward you. Gutlessness at this stage will shorten your term in office.

    Are you only hell bent on ensuring that you have such a landslide victory at the next election that you remain in power for many many terms of parliament? If so you are deceiving yourselves.

    Are you prepared to place the future economic well-being of this wonderful nation into jeopardy by not having the courage to state the obvious? We are being conned!!

    Sure you will be the brunt of (corrupted) media. Please take courage. Stop listening to polls. Australians are desperate for genuine leadership on this critical issue.

    Allowing a Greens dominated Senate to flourish and take us into economic oblivion after 4th July is just not good enough.

    Mr Abbott: It's TIme!! - to declare the truth. Climate Science has been massively corrupted.

    Direct Action has no validity. Just stop perpetuating AGW lies by pretending that it does.
