Please Explain???

Open Letter to the Multi-Party Climate Change Committee.
This committee replaced The PM's promised People's Assemby.
The people's assembly convened on the lawns outside parliament house but our PM didn't attend.

Dear Committee,

Can anyone on the committee please explain why we are going ahead with a tax on carbon dioxide, a tax that will severely inhibit Australia's growth, will see businesses move off shore and cause major unemployment for Australia?

Can anyone on the committee please explain why carbon dioxide has been branded as a causitive factor in the non-existant runaway global warming?

Can anyone on the committee please explain why we are going to tax man-made emissions of carbon dioxide when carbon dioxide is an essential-to-life plant food?

Can anyone on the committee please explain why the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC - a political body!) has written to us  saying that, although they have had more than twenty years to pin the blame on carbon dioxide, they have not one skerrick of proof? (Letter available on request.)

Can anyone on the committee please explain why, although atmospheric CO2 is rising in a straight line, rise in temperature seems to have stalled?

Can anyone on the committee please explain why the ABC always shows steam or worse coming from cooling towers when they want to depict colourless essential-to-life carbon dioxide?

Can anyone on the committee please explain why the Greenland and Vostok Ice core samples show that  CO2 does not cause global temperatures to rise, rather Global Warming causes atmospheric CO2 to rise.

Can anyone on the committee please explain why, although atmospheric CO2 kept rising from ~1945 to ~1975, world temperatures were falling and International News Magazines reported that we were heading for a new Ice Age?

Can anyone on the committee please explain why we are going ahead with a tax on carbon dioxide when ex-Australian of the Year, mammelogist Tim Flannery says that any action we take now, will have no effect for up to 1000 years?

Can anyone on the committee please explain why, if Australia cuts its man-made emissions by 5% it will mean that the world-wide emissions will be reduced by $0.000000etc... Google it!

Atmospheric CO2 is less that 0.04% and the man-made emissions are around 3.4% of that. Australia's proportion is about 1% of total man-made emission and Julia and Bob want to kill Australia's international trading position for ( you can work it out on your calculator)

  CO2=0.04x3.4%x1%x5%.  Is that going to make a difference?

Your replies would be appreciated. This e-mail will be published on the TCS blog.

Cheers

Sydney Rally with Pinocchio

Pinocchio and Friend
The Sydney Anti Carbon [dioxide] Tax rally is on Saturday 2nd April 2011. The number of participating organizations has mushroomed to those listed in the flier below. With so many hands helping and our steep learning curve, we are on track to make this a truly great and fun family day. More details of the speakers and activities later. (From No Carbon Tax)
