Gillard's Carbon-Suicide Tax


James Delingpole is a writer, journalist and broadcaster who is right about everything. Writing in the UK Telegraph, James describes Julia Gillard's crazy, economy-killing tax on vital-to-life carbon dioxide as "Julia Gillard's carbon suicide tax."

James' column is headed:   

Ha ha Warmist losers. For you the war is over

  and he writes:

One of my resolutions this year is to write as little as possible about global warming. Not only will it make my wife much happier but it will also free me up to talk about more important things such as monetary collapse, hyperinflation and the imminent end of Western civilisation. Oh and also there's hardly much need for my input on climate change any more. That's because, basically, my side has won.
Here's how The Financial Times recently put it:
To the relief of many of the country’s biggest manufacturers and industries, there has been a distinct shift in the government’s tone on green issues. Even Steve Hilton, Mr Cameron’s chief policy adviser, and the man credited with coining the phrase “vote blue, go green”, appears to have had some serious second thoughts. “There is a clear disintegration of the green consensus,” says Benny Peiser, director of the Global Warming Policy Foundation, a critic of many climate policies. “We’re still at the stage of rhetoric rather than really strong rollback of policies, but it normally starts with the rhetoric before you start with policies.”
After some discussion about UK policy advisor Steve Hilton, he continues:
As you'll know by now, I'm not usually Mister Optimist. So what the hell am I doing crowing about victory in the climate wars when clearly there remains so much work to be done? We-e-ll: I think Benny Peiser nailed it in that quote above. Sure there are still heaps and heaps of really bad global-warming-related policies which remain on the statute books, notably such as the Climate Change Act in Britain, Julia Gillard's carbon suicide tax in Australia, and all those swingeing environmental laws which are wreaking such economic havoc in greentard US states like California. As far as the battle of ideas is concerned, though, the Warmists are on the run.

Donna Lafromboise says that she is proud to be a Canadian (LINK) Her rationale?
First our leaders said ‘no’ to Kyoto. Then they stood up to green bullies.
Oh that Ms Gillard stood up to green bullies. Most say that she needs their votes to maintain government. TCS blog says that is equine excrement. Bob Brown (no relation) would never vote with Tony Abbot's Liberals in "green" or "leftie" areas. PM Gillard can pan the Greens and still be assured of their votes.


Green Peace Founder Patrick Moore on Wind Farms

Larry Pickering
As reported by Climate Realists:

RIDGETOWN - Southwestern Ontario's flourishing wind energy industry came under fire Wednesday from the co-founder of Greenpeace.

Dr. Patrick Moore told more than 1,000 area farmers the industry destroys more jobs than it creates, and causes energy prices to climb for all users.

“The industry is a destroyer of wealth and negative to the economy,'' said Moore, speaking at the 19th annual Southwest Agricultural Conference at Ridgetown campus of the University of Guelph.

Moore, who now refers to himself as the “sensible environmentalist,'' said the solar bubble has burst and thinks the wind bubble is about to burst.

“I'm happy for the farmers who are receiving royalties for allowing the wind towers to be built on their farms,'' he said. “They deserve it — but the cost to consumers will continue to climb — partly because of rate increases and partly due to tax increases.''

“They are ridiculously expensive and don't work half the time,'' he said. “And no matter how many are built, they won’t replace coal, gas or hydro or nuclear plants, because they are continuous and wind is not always reliable.''

Moore told his audience the wind energy industry in Spain has resulted in a 30% unemployment rate among people under the age of 30.
