Time to raise Hell over the Carbon (dioxide) Tax

David Archibald is an Australian Climate Scientist. He has written an opinion piece for News Weekly.

After quoting Plato:
“The punishment which the wise suffer, who refuse to take part in government, is to live under the government of worse men.”
he goes on to say that we are being ruled by evil men and women.
It is now universally accepted that the carbon tax is a very bad thing promoted by evil people.

The evil goes back a bit further than Julia Gillard’s broken promise and Kevin Rudd’s inane pronouncements. This tax has been a long time coming, and has mixed paternity.
The last dark deed of the Howard Government was the passage of the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act in October 2007. That act is the auditing basis of the carbon tax.
He says that the evil goes beyond Howard, Rudd and Gillard.
As a scientist, what saddens me is that most of our scientific institutions have failed in their duty to serve and protect the Australian people. The CSIRO, the Bureau of Meteorology, the universities — these have all failed us and sold their souls for a handful of silver. Our academics have met our lowest expectations of them.
Then there are the institutions that actively, and purposefully, and very treacherously, conspire against us.
Chief among them is the ABC, which has ceaselessly, and shamelessly, promoted the bizarre cult of carbon.
He also says that "We must use this opportunity — your righteous anger — to unleash the Furies on those who failed us, and those who conspired against us."
