Brisbane Broncos -Scared stupedos not wild ponies!

Apologies to the great Banjo.

There was movement in ole Brissie

For the word had got around

That the meeting with regret had gone away.

Broncos - wild bush horses - disowned the football club

Who didn't even offer to repay.

All the learned and the curious from suburbs near and far

Had booked their Monckton tickets with delight

For Queenslanders love new knowledge - presented by a star

But the Broncos snuffed the knowledge on that night.

What a disgraceful, shameful mob the Broncos Board are. 
What ignorant people!

Just Running Scared - But from what?

What are you people scared of? Where are your brains?

The following is a Press Release from 
Leon Ashby 
President of the Climate Sceptics Party.

Today, just after Adelaide's 5AA announcer Leon Byner put to air mention of Lord Monckton's event at Port Adelaide Football club on 22nd of July, I received a phone call from Port Adelaide Football club to say the event was cancelled.

This event was organised after the S.A. German Club pulled out of supplying a venue for the same event. Both venues were booked without any questions then the deals broken.

We have also had the Brisbane Broncos pull out of an event in Brisbane too.

I am happy to go to air to speak about this.

 In my view this is getting way beyond the joke.

Why are people afraid of being able to have business transaction events with climate sceptics - is everything you or I do tainted with whom we associate?

Well,  some footy clubs think so!

Port Adelaide Management said they don`t want to be associated with that sort of thing.

Do they have political jokes at their functions? - Yes their manager admitted.

So why the sensitivity on this issue?

Are we in a society with people saying "unclean; unclean," their minds are evil because they think CO2 is not a pollutant.
This is footy clubs not giving the public freedom to hear both sides of a story.

Is this is the new world of the thought police?
And does this extend to Football clubs being afraid of a political backlash ( in other words) they could be seen to be against a carbon tax and afraid of loss of future government support for their club?

The corruption of freedom of speech because Government Grants are only given when you support the party line.

Can we get to the bottom of this?

Carbon Tax Mark 3 - Millions will be Worse Off.

Authorised by Viv Forbes    Chairman    The Carbon Sense Coalition
                                                                                     

A print-ready copy of this issue of "Carbon Sense" can be downloaded from:

Australia's Minister for Controlling the Climate, King Combet, has promised that millions of households will be better off under Carbon Tax Mark 3.

Who is he trying to fool?

There is only one tax on the people and that is total government spending. The carbon tax will increase that greatly. And the more complex the system, with more exemptions, more rebates, more electoral bribes and more cash handouts, the more will be wasted on government administration. We will pay more and get less value back.

Every tax levied by the government gets spread around until it rests with the people at the bottom of the pile. Consumers will see increased costs for electricity food and transport, retirees will see lower dividends, job seekers will see contraction of real jobs, other tax receipts will fall thus reducing government income, and too many of us will spend more time trying to join the ranks of the tax avoiders and rorters.

Can we believe that the same incompetents who delivered pink batts, cash-for-clunkers, schools renewals, a computer for every child and the Queensland Health Payroll will suddenly be able to handle the complexities and con-men in yet another money-churning vote-buying scheme?

None of this will have any effect whatsoever on climate, so why crucify ourselves further?

The world is moving on from the global warming scam.

It's Time for Australia to move on.

Which Carbon Tax? None of the Above.


It seems that everyone except Professor Garnault knows that the PM Gillard's "Price on Carbon" is a "Tax on Carbon Dioxide". The more she denies this fact, the less we trust anything she says.

Her "carbon tax" is so unpopular that she is now proposing its early replacement by Emissions Trading Scheme Mark 2.

There are two essential elements to an emissions trading scheme.

First, the tonnage of carbon dioxide produced will be rationed by law – so it is back to the old war-time ration cards. No one is allowed to produce harmless carbon dioxide without having a ration card. (Will it apply to Kevin Rudd's jet, or to foreign tourists coming to visit the Barrier Reef?)

But unlike the old ration cards which were provided free, these carbon ration permits will be sold by the government. They act exactly like a tax on production – just another underhand tax on carbon dioxide.

These permits to emit hot air can be traded. They will become profitable playthings for bankers and speculators. Europe has shown that fraudsters flourish and permit prices vary wildly in such markets in make-believe goods.

Imagine producers seeking investment certainty in an Emissions Trading Casino.

 A simple fixed tax is far better than a complex variable tax.

But the best Carbon Tax result is for Parliament to vote "None of the Above".


Background Comments:

Speculators Paradise:
"Under the European ETS, the price of permits tripled in the first six months of the scheme then collapsed by half in 2006 before declining to zero at one point in 2007. Recently, the permit price has fallen by 20 per cent in just a week, including a fall of 11 per cent on just one day. Such volatility fatally undermines the argument that an ETS will provide “certainty” for emitters."

Australian Tour by Lord Christopher Monckton

From the Carbon Sense Coalition's Viv Forbes

A well organised group (GetUp - Ed) who support the Global Warming Swindle and the Carbon Tax Grab have put pressure on the venues that agreed to host the Monckton Functions. Surprisingly the Broncos League Club in Brisbane has reneged on an agreed function. Already our supporters have let the Broncos know what they think of this breach of contract. Keep it up.

But the function will go ahead at:
Bardon Conference Centre
390 Simpsons Rd
Bardon QLD 4065
Phone: +61 7 3217 5333
Wednesday 13th July 2011. Doors open 6pm for 7pm start. PLEASE SUPPORT THIS FUNCTION.

There is parking at the venue for about 200 cars. Best public transport would be via taxi.

NOTE that Professor Bob Carter will also be appearing with Lord Monckton at this new Brisbane venue and at Noosa Junction.

Peer-reviewed Paper - No warming from1998 to 2008

From Anthony Watts' WUWT.

The Kaufmann et al 2011 paper (Mike Mann is a co-author) is embargoed until 8PM GMT (12PM PDT) today, and we have an advance copy thanks to Dr. Benny Peiser .
Here is the PDF file: pnas.201102467
The headline from the abstract:
Given the widely noted increase in the warming effects of rising greenhouse gas concentrations, it has been unclear why global surface temperatures did not rise between 1998 and 2008.
 In the Climategate emails, Kevin Trenberth wrote that it was a travesty that there was no warming. Now we have it officially in a peer-reviewed paper with Michael Mann (of disgraced hockey stick fame) as one of the co-authors.

So, if there was no warming from 1998 to 2008, why, oh why is the Australian Government going ahead with a tax that will destroy the Australian Economy? Why are we going to have a tax on an innocent trace gas, colourless, non-polluting carbon dioxide?

Wake up Australia!
