The Carbon Tax


The  Carbon Tax

As most people are aware the Carbon Tax will commence from the beginning of July.

Without doubt this is most detested and unfair tax of any other tax before it.

We must have taxes of many forms to run our country and infrastructures, and we all accept our taxes as an ‘evil’ necessity, but the Carbon Tax is not there for that reason.

Before explaining let’s look at the ‘reason’ the Labor government gives for imposing such a tax.

They say that if they impose a tax of $23.00 per ton of carbon dioxide  emitted, that it will force up the cost of electricity and make people reduce their consumption of electrical power.

This applies to Industry, commerce and domestic consumption of electricity. Forcing people to use less power and thus reduce the output from the thermal coal fired power stations, which in turn would use less coal and thus create less carbon dioxide.!!!
Also industry and commerce theoretically will reduce production because of the cost to them of the carbon tax, with the supposedly  same result.

Obviously the  idea came from the Greens who live in a make believe world, like middle earth, with the words ‘common sense and logic’ totally alien to them.
The facts are it will force the cost of everything up by as much as 20% from the flow on of various price increases in various industries.

But there will be NO reduction in power consumption, because electricity is essential to our homes, our jobs, our manufacturers, our industries.

Industry and manufacturers are not going to reduce production just because the cost of power has gone up 15% or more. That cost obviously will be passed on to you the consumer, who will pay the ultimate price.
Since 1993 power consumption has grown at approximately 4% per year without the slight influence from solar panels, wind generators or other ‘renewable’ energy sources.\

Thermal power generation growth has increased 98% in that period and will continue to grow to meet the demands of our growing economy and industrial demands whether the carbon tax is there or not.
The carbon tax will achieve absolutely nothing except to put our money in the pockets of the Labor government who will then proceed to pass seven thousand million (seven billion) dollars a year on to the United Nation for them to give away to ‘third world’ countries as they wish.
Your money that could have been spent on roads, health, hospitals and many other urgently needed infrastructures. At the same time the deaths on our roads will continue to increase because the desperate need for money to repair them is being pirated away by this insane government.
All this carbon tax, hot rocks programmes, solar farms, wind generators, underground carbon dioxide storage, roofing insulation programmes and clean coal technology was  supposedly intended to reduce our carbon dioxide emissions.
Every one of them is a miserable failure and the carbon tax is an obvious raping of our economy.
 The hot rocks programme collapsed, literally, and has been shut down.
 The roofing insulation programme was an unbelievable waste and a massive disaster with billions of dollars wasted.
The underground carbon dioxide storage is a total failure with nearly sixty percent of the power generated being used to pump the carbon dioxide underground.
The clean coal technology programme is another complete failure with many billions of dollars of Queenslanders money wasted and the company operating it going bankrupt.
With billions of dollars spent, the solar farms and wind generators have generated (not so called capacity) less than 1.5% of our total power.
 Excluding Hydro power at 4.6%, which has been in operation fully since 1974.
Not only has our carbon dioxide emissions in Australia NOT reduced, nor will it, but also after some thirty five years the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has NOT fallen one gram. 

Let me ask you six questions (and please no cheating) if you don’t know just write what you think it is.\
1.     What percentage is the total carbon dioxide of our atmosphere.
2.     What percentage of that is supposedly ‘man made’ carbon dioxide.

3.     What is 97% of the Worlds ‘greenhouse’ gases.

4.     What percentage of the world’s man made gases does Australia emit.

5.     If the Labor government reduced our annual emissions by 20% (which is impossible) what percentage difference would  this make to the world’s carbon dioxide level.

6.     Over the past fifty years how much has the World’s carbon dioxide increased per year.


     Answers.
A1  Total percentage is point zero three eight of one percent i.e. .038%
A2. 3.4% or   .038 x 3.4%  = .00129 of one percent of total atmosphere. Over total time.
A3. Moisture, as in clouds. Without this ‘Greenhouse’ gas there would be no life on earth as we know it because there would be no rivers, lakes or rain.
A4  1.5% or as a percentage .00001935 of one percent !!!
A5  One fifth of the above or . 00000387 of  ONE PERCENT.
A6  CO2 in the atmosphere has increased at .00008 of ONE percent per year.
After looking at these figures it is very clear what a scam and deliberate lie man made climate change and the carbon tax is. But the alarmists, the Greens, the U.N. and others have made billions of dollars by deceiving the world with their lies. 

Carbon Dioxide itself is a harmless gas that we breathe in at 400 ppm and out at 1000 parts per million and is essential to all forms of plant growth.
Its ability to absorb or deflect heat is little different to many other gases.
It is now proven that carbon dioxide increases lag behind global temperature increases by 800 years.
In 2012 the Kyoto treaty is due for resigning but not one of the major countries will be signing it.  The U.K. stated clearly they can no longer afford to waste money on “renewable energy’ which is proving to be a total failure. The USA, Brazil, South Africa, China, India, France, Russia, and many other countries have turned their backs on the so called Man made climate change. All saying they can no longer afford to waste any more of their economies (some that are in recession, like the U.K.) on the renewable energy ideology.
Not only has it severely damaged their economies but has also left many, desperately short of electrical power. Ironically, they were being rescued by those countries that retained and expanded their thermal and nuclear energy programmes.
The only success out of all these programmes is the home solar panel installations, if  they are installed at the right price. They have absolutely no effect on national power demand being a teaspoon in a two hundred litre drum but have helped reduced many domestic power bills.
The power of the future; Both the USA and Australia have enough coal at present usage and sales to last for the next 380 years. That is not counting coal deposits yet to be located, so we will be using thermal coal and gas power for a long time yet.
The power of the future most likely will be the new LFTR fourth generation nuclear power plants.  The  Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors that are non radio active and will consume all their fuel with no by products and are able to consume the  by products from older radio active plutonium reactors.
Solar farms and Wind generators will never play a major role in power generation as their output is far to low and unreliable and is expensive to install and operate for the  power generated.
Also on a smaller capacity scale both tidal and wave action power generation holds promise for the future but would never have a major input. 
Australia belongs to all true Australians and as such anything above or below the ground belongs to us too. As such, any mining of coal, iron ore, gas, oil, timber, etc. should pay a royalty that is fair and reasonable to both sides. That way we all share the wealth.
But the Carbon Tax punishes and robs the wrong people to satisfy the greed of a government that will do anything to get money to satisfy their needs and their Green cohorts in crime.
It would be wonderful to have cheap power available to us all, but apart from home solar panels (after they have paid for themselves) it is not possible.

      THE TRUTH ABOUT POWER STATIONS.


Bob Brown’s and Julia Gillard’s endless tirade about thermal power stations being dirty and emitting black smoke from their chimneys, polluting the atmosphere and creating catastrophic Global Warming oops climate change now,has hit a new low.

When they tried to foister onto us the photos of Battersea Power Station in London, that has been closed for over thirty years and only a shell, as a polluting Australian power station they proved what deceitful and corrupt ‘individuals’ they and their Green cohorts are.
Even the smoke was supperimposed on the picture. If you look closely you will see it is cockeyed on some of the chimneys. Also it would never have emitted that much smoke.

These people, Gillard, Brown, Milne and the rest of the Labor and Green party are so desperate to push theIr carbon tax that they will resort to ANY measures to achieve what they want and are desperate to stay in power.

They follow the philosophy of the Nazi propagandist Goebbels who said;
If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
-------------------------------
The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly - it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them.
---------------------------------
Do these seem familiar- they should do; they follow this philosophy to the letter, pushing the biggest scam the world has even seen.

Any businessman will tell you if they tried to sell their product on TV, with these sort of lies and deception the ACCC or Fair Trade Practices Commission would have them locked up and fined heavily for their deliberate distortion and lies. AND rightly so. Yet these liars are allowed to get away with it. WHY?

To put to rest the lies about the emissions from modern power stations, I have listed photos and information below of many major modern power stations in Queensland, N.S.W and Victoria.
  1. Note how little smoke or pollution is coming from the power station stacks.
The Power Stations are under full load or close to it. Bayswater has one unit shut down at the time.
The cooling towers are the large round cylinders with vapour rising from them.

The condensation rising from them is as pure as most drinking water with a conductivity of 350 to 450 micro mhos. Similar to tap water. Notice how the condensation finishes to nothing, NOT falling on the ground.

These are no different to normal clouds. Clouds-- that ‘other’ 97% of so called Green house gases.
Without them there would be NO rain and a virtually dead planet. i.e. no water— no life.
One person tried to say they were full of mercury and other poisons. This is the sort of rubbish they try to lie about. The same person, a member of a zero emissions website who are pushing wind generators, compared carbon dioxide with cancer cells !!!!! Another compared it to arsenic. You decide what you think of them.!!!

N.S.W. POWER STATIONS














Bayswater Power Station – 4 x 660 Megatts units.  One unit of line . Black bituminous coal.

VICTORIAN POWER STATIONS,


Hazelwood Power Station. 8 x 200MW units. Brown Coal. Condensate cooling ;Lake cooling.


This is how the greens altered the photo to make it look  Like massive pollution. They are corrupt to the core.


Loy Yang A Power Station 4 x 500MW units Brown coal. Condensate Cooling; Cooling towers



Same power station at full load. The photos have been ‘doctored’ to make it look bad. Compare the difference. This is what the Greens do to a photo to tell lies.


Loy Yang B Power Station 2 x500MW units Brown coal; Condensate cooling; Cooling Towers


Loy Yang A photos doctored by a Melbourne 'older' newspaper. Notice how the black smoke and
clouds appear from no where. The black ‘smoke’des not even reach the chimneys.
 A very poor effort.The white clouds are pure evaporation from the cooling towers.

There are other power stations but those above serve as a clear example of how clean modern stations really are.

The length the Greens will go to is nothing but deliberate lies and deceit. Altering photos to make them look bad. The word treason would suit them very well.

                                    TELLING FAIRYTALES.



What’s that old saying we used.--‘Telling Fairy Tales’. Another one----‘Out of the mouths of babes.’ And that’s what we got from Julia Gillard about Tony Abbott—‘Telling Fairy Tales’.

How about another one we know-----‘The pot calling the kettle black.’

If ever it applied to anyone it certainly applies to Gillard, Rudd, Garrett, Wong and their cohorts.

For years they have lied and deceived the Australian public, who were naive enough to believe all their endless lies. Trusting a government that was built on deception and ‘Fairy Tales’.

Where do you start?

Perhaps with the so called Global Warming lies or the new name ‘Climate Change,’ because they fell on their face over global warming; now it is completely disproven.

Even though they were well aware of the I.P.C.C.s deception and from the American and European experiences, that Global warming and Renewable energy was the biggest scam and failure this world has seen or ever will see, they continued to tell ‘Fairy tales’ about Thermal power generation and the capabilities of renewable energy sources. i.e. Wind generators and solar power generation farms.

Even with thirty one years of proven results that there is no such thing as manmade global warming or the fact of spending billions of dollars to building thousands of totally unreliable and very expensive wind generators and solar farms have achieved absolutely ZERO.

Not ONE nation has reduced its thermal generation output and in fact they have continued to increase at the normal growth rate.

After thirty one years not ONE of their ‘fairytale’ predictions has eventuated.

Yet knowing this the Rudd/ Gillard Government still tell ‘Fairy Tales’ about thermal power station emissions and the so called pollution from cooling towers which is pure condensation.

They have spent billions of dollars on home insulation programme, domestic solar power generation, solar hot water, wind generators and solar array farms and the whole intention was to reduce thermal power generation. Thus reduce the CO2 output from the chimneys.

The final achievement in carbon dioxide reduction after all of these is NOTHING.

Power generation demand continues to grow at 4% per year and over 85% of this is thermal power which is where the growth rate is. The percentage increase in renewable energy is miniscule in relation to the overall power generation figures.

Because of their desperate efforts to retain the green vote they continue to pander to their ridiculous demands. Wasting billions of dollars ‘chasing butterflies' and telling ‘fairy tales’ and worse still deliberately ‘telling porkies’ to the Australian people.

If anyone doubts that, have a look at the past few weeks when a member elected by the people of this country to the position of prime minister was ‘assassinated’ by a Gillard and here gang because his ratings had fallen.

They went into panic mode in a desperate bid to stay in power.

Not since Roman times when Caesar was assassinated on the steps of the Senate has there been such a devious and sadistic attack, without the slightest compunction or consideration for their former leader.

Yet all they are doing is ‘moving the deckchairs around on the Titanic’.

What were some of those fairytales Gillard recently told;

A. I’m more likely to go to Mars than to be Prime Minister.

B. I’m more likely to sail round the world than to be Prime Minister.

C. I’m more likely to play for the Carlton football club than to be Prime Minister.

D. I have no ambition for the leadership I’m happy where I am.

The best ‘Fairytale’ was the latest one from the mining super profit tax agreement that the government’s resource rent tax regime only reduced the revenue by $1.5 billion.

What she didn’t say was that commodity price forecasts were revised between the two taxes to make it look less. -----Another ‘Fairy Tale’.

At the end of the day’ ‘it is not a level playing field and the goal posts have been moved.’

This government has wasted billions of dollars on crazy schemes like the ‘clean coal’ technology where on one ‘clean coal’ experimental’ power station alone they spent fourteen hundred million dollars and it was an admitted failure.

Also they have spent five hundred million on a thirty megawatt power station out west that is supposed to pump the CO2 underground. It uses sixteen of the thirty megawatts to do it. i.e. 14 megawatt output. Which is ’beyond a joke.’

When is all this madness going to stop and they get back to some form of reality and spend it on our major infrastructures where is should be spent. Roads, water, dams, health, hospitals, etc.

The great farce of the home insulation program that achieved absolutely nothing, cost four lives and spent thousands of millions of dollars. Now they have to undo a major part of it.

Over that alone the government and Garrett should be ‘Hung out To Dry'

Even after all of this they are planning to build many useless wind generators costing billions of dollars throughout Australia even though they know it is a waste of time and your money.

All these decision were made with the input and approval of Ms Gillard and her associates. Now Ms Gillard; says ‘It wasn't me; I didn't do it.' It was Kevin Rudd. He made those decisions on his own.’

And they expect us to believe it. Another ‘Fairytale. They must think the Australian public are fools.

Fair suck of the sauce bottle’.

If it goes ‘pear-shaped, it is no good ‘throwing our toys out of the pram or our teddy in the corner.’ But that’s exactly what they did.

If they get back after the next election they will;

a. Reintroduce the ‘global warming’ scam.

b. Reintroduce the ridiculous carbon credit scheme.

c. Continue to build more useless wind generators and solar array farms.

d. Try again to force the E.T.S. ‘down our throats'.

If the Australian economy was compared to a house. That house would be vandalized, wrecked and garbage strewn everywhere.!!!

Yet when the Howard Government left it was in pristine condition.

If this government gets back into power the Australian public will not get another chance.

Next time will be too late and the great country we once knew will be gone forever.
Handed over to extreme greenies and extreme muslims who want to remove our democratic way of life and replace with the horrendous Sharia law.

This is the Australia we love. Without doubt the finest country in the world –That our parents and grandparents fought for.-Lets keep it that way.


Don’t let their efforts be in vain.
The Gillard/ Brown  Government begins the  destruction of our economy.
.
When Bob Brown the leader of the so called ‘green’ movement stood alongside Julia Gillard on the steps of Paliament House announcing to the media the introduction of the Carbon Credit Tax, it was amazing how he made her mouth move without putting his hand up her back and operating her it  like the usual dummy.
Previously I said that she had sold her soul to the devil when she got in bed with Bob Brown and his communist associates. Now that is proving to be very true. She is in his trap and cannot escape.
The proof is the fact that she lied when she said there would be no Carbon tax ( for something that is non existent i.e. manmade global warming.) and then without the slightest hesistation announced there will be a carbon tax whilst saying she never lied.  But she will buy off the people that voted for them by giving them a concession whilst destroying our industry and economy.
The statement it will only cause an increase of 5% is an absolute lie. Everything uses electricity and everyone of those products or services will increase substantially from the ‘flowon’ effect.
The Electricity power Generation Industry is an absolute essential part of our country and has been the main player in making Australia what it is today. Without it the country would be dead. Nothing . No water, no power, no computers, very little food. Industry and commerce would grind to a complete halt. And these idealistic fools want to close it down whilst trying to introduce so called renewable energy in the form of wind and solar power generation, which as a main power source has proven to be a repeatedly total failure all over the world. Yet these fools still insist on ‘going forward’ with their crazy schemes.
The suggestion that this carbon tax will create 31000 jobs is ludicrous, espescially when you consider the amount of people who will be made redundant because industry cannot afford them.
The insulation programme was a failure. The clean coal plant were a failure. The Underground CO2 storage was failure. The ridiculous light bulb fiasco was a failure. Solar panels on roofs are a failure as far as the main grid system is concerned. Everything this Government  touches  is a disaster.
It would be wonderful to have solar power on the roof, water tanks out the back.and be  independent.This is possible on an individual house basis but does nothing for the main power generation system.
The excess from these panels would equate, literally, to less than a small teaspoon in a 200 litre drum and are an irritation to those operating the power generation system.

Julia Gillard wants to introduce a carbon tax for one reason- to claw back the money her and her cronies have wasted on their crazy schemes. Bob Brown wants it because he knows it will destroy our economy.
It has nothing to do with carbon dioxide, an inert harmless gas, which consist only .38% or 380 parts per million in our armosphere. To do the impossible and reduce our emmissions by 20% would make a difference of .00000016%. Yet Gillard and her cronies, controlled by Brown, still try to use the excuse of a ‘carbon tax’.

Julia Gillard and the labor party got back into government by lies and deceit and should be made accountable by calling another election without the interference of the useless ‘independents’ who caused this problem in the first place. Ironically if they had to face re election they would be thrown out on their ears.
The only one with any sense of honesty was Bob Katter.
Julia Gillard should also be charged with fraud and deception and answer a court of law. They are NOT are majority elected government and should NOT be there to destroy this great country.
Be warned if Brown and Gillard continue down this path they will destroy our economy and our way of life.
It is now up to you, the reader, to stop them or pay a very heavy penalty in the future.

DEATH’S FOR CO2 REDUCTION.

One of the worse things we can read in the newspapers is of another car crash resulting in the death of some or all of the occupants.

Worse still, quite often they are young people, who lives have been snatched away in a split second because they made one minor but fatal error. The people of our future.

It is irrelevant whether they were right or wrong –they are still dead.

For the parents and relatives the terrible loss is a heartache and agony that is almost unbearable

that would endure for a long time.

The police, emergency services officers, reporters and journalists have to attend these crashes and I cannot understand how they are not scarred for life with the horror they often have to witness.

The police are continually frustrated trying their best to stop the carnage but can only do so much.

The state and federal governments response to this is NOT to improve the roads- just reduce the speed limit--- problem solved----ridiculous.

Cars, buses, caravans and trucks passing each other at differential speeds of over 200 K.M.H. with only as little as 25c.m. to 50c.m. between them is a scary scenario.

Single lane roads where we have to wait for long periods of time before a driver can even overtake a slower vehicle, creates frustration and impatience and cause drivers to take risks they should not take.

Yet we blindly continue to accept this even though all this carnage can be prevented by the simple use of common sense and logic.
The money that was totally wasted on the crazy, useless roofing insulation programme, the failed clean coal technology and CO2 underground projects, all failures, just to satisfy the insanity of the Greens demands, by the labour party, of $4,500,000,000 plus the removal and correcting the complete foul up of the insulation scheme, another $1,000,000,000.

All this money could have built a separated multi lane expressways from Cairns to Melbourne and have money left over to build dams and hospitals that function correctly.

Had those expressways been built over 85% of those deaths would not have occurred.

The police, emergency service and journalists would not be forced to face the horror of smashed bodies and havoc left behind.

Yet the Australian voters quickly forget the carnage that the greens have created and the unbelievable waste of so much money just to suit a crazy, now disproven idea, about global warming or climate change as they now prefer to call it.

They with their total insanity were also responsible for the death of 173 people, destruction of over 230 homes and the displacement of over 7000 people in the Victorian bushfires.

Australia and its people were looking after our climate long before the greens came along and will do so long after they have gone. The have done nothing to this country except to create massive wastes of money and devastation of homes and industry.

We desperately need to replace the goat track called the Bruce Highway and make it, and all major interconnecting city highways, into expressways. Build more dams and pipe the rivers before it is too late.

This cannot be done when this government is wasting so much money on crazy schemes.

They have on order a huge amount of wind generators to build massive wind farms. Yet throughout the world they have repeatedly proven to be a failure.

A large cost to maintain and operate with substantial failures all over the world.

California went bankrupt trying to use them and after 31 years they still only have 2.3% renewable energy. Yet thermal power continues to grow.

Spain has gone bankrupt, imports power, and has a 20% unemployment, thanks to their involvement with renewable energy.

Germany has also moved away from renewable energy and returned to thermal and nuclear power.

Denmark is yet to reduce one gram of CO2 output with endless windmill failures.

Yet this government, living in their little cocoon, still insist on wasting your money on useless, totally unreliable and inconsistent wind generators and solar farms.

If the greens get control of the Australian senate they will close down power stations, mines, many industries and try to achieve the absolute IMPOSSIBILITY of 100% renewable energy. Australia will suffer dire consequences with an economy and industry in tatters within three years.

Recession will be a picnic compared to the depression we will slide into.

THE POISONED CHALICE.

TO ALL THE GREEN VOTERS.

Australians are fortunate that they can freely choose whoever they wish to support them in the parliament and to govern this once great country.
This choice is usually made on the basis that the voter has studied his party’s choice and is WELL AWARE of their policies and what that party stands for.

But I find it hard to believe that the people who voted for the Greens are aware of all their policies.
So why did you vote for the Greens ?
Was it as one voter said ‘I thought they were nice people.’
Another said it was ‘because they care about the environment.’ As if no one else does.!!!!
Perhaps you were  disenchanted by the major parties and thought you would give your vote to the greens instead, without even knowing their policies or how dangerous they are.
I find it impossible to believe that anyone in their right mind would vote for the Greens if they knew the truth. Instead of all the lies they have told and policies that would put the fear  into the devil.

Did you know they want to introduce death duties.
That horrible archaic tax from the past that has caused an overwhelming amount of misery and grief to so many families. Rich and poor, it makes no difference. Everything is frozen till the tax man gets his share.
In the mean time families are torn apart.

They want to allow the boat people and other so called ‘environmental refugees’ free access to Australia without any limitations or health and security checks within two weeks of arrival.
Allowing them to live freely in our country, and worse to give them financial aid and housing.
 The flood of millions from Asia and everywhere else would totally devastate our country and terrorists  would be free to attack us from within the country , tearing us apart from the inside.

They want to increase taxes on large and small businesses by another 5%. As if small businesses are not already hanging on by their fingertips desperately trying to survive through a global financial crisis and the  painfully slow recovery. This could be a possible death blow to many small businesses.

They will demand farmers "remove as far as possible" all genetically modified  crops, which includes cotton worth  thirteen hundred million dollars a year. ($1.3 billion) a year.

They want to end "the mining and export of uranium", worth  nine hundred thousand million dollars ( $900 billion) a year.


They want to introduce a carbon tax on everything destroying whatever businesses that survive their other holocausts and force the cost of electricity (if we still have any) and other products  through the roof.

They intend  to lift foreign aid to a minimum of 0.7 per cent of GDP, which means an instant rise in handouts to their fanatics overseas  of four thousand million dollars ($4 billion) a year. This is partly due to the fact that their Copenhagen handout of seven thousand million dollars a year, thankfully failed, and this is another way of getting that money

They want to close down all coal mines in Australia and wipe out an industry that brings to the Australian people over sixty four thousand million dollars ($64billion)  a year to help pay for our hospitals, road, schools, family and child care, pensions, national defence, etc. etc.
Not only that but it would completely alienate our trade relationship with China, the backbone of our export economy.  Without China purchasing our resources our economy would be in total collapse and so would this country.
They want to close down all coal fired power stations and replace them with ‘Renewable energy”. Which might be O.K. if it was at all feasible but it is TOTALLY IMPOSSIBLE to even achieve 5% renewable energy .Let alone 100% renewable energy.
It has been tried over the last thirty years or more in many countries with the resultant abject failure.
California has gone bankrupt trying with over 14000 wind generator failures and a return to thermal power generation. The total ‘renewable energy in California after 31 years is 2.3% and falling.
Spain is also bankrupt because of their renewable energy fiasco and are importing power. The cost of which has doubled and they now have an unemployment rate of over 20%.
Germany has over 7500 wind generators of which 2500 failed last year and they have returned to Thermal power which saved them last winter from total collapse.
With Denmark’s 5000 wind generators of which 2000 failed last year they are yet to reduce so called ‘CO2 emissions.’ By one gram and like the other countries rely on thermal power generation for backup.
The resultant failures in various countries  are always the same from many countries but the Greens flatly refuse to see the failures because they want to bring Australia to its knees and under their communist globalisation control.
 They have NO interest in our well being, only in their communist ideologies and are determined to destroy our economy.
Under that very thin cover of green is a very bright red of the communist, lead by the fanatical Bob Brown, who is a liar and one of the worst perpetrators of this world scam and  he wants total control.
 If the extremists  called ‘greens’ should bring their policies to fruition it will  destroy our economy and our country.
To the point it could bring about an extremely violent reaction from the Australian people when they finally realise that the Greens are deliberately trying to tear  our country apart.
By that time it could be too late. The only consolation would be that every Green would pay severely for their treachery.
Now that you have read their policies, and this is not all of them. Are you still proud you voted for the greens. Will you stand up and accept the blame when this country is devastated for this communist agenda.
Or will you do the right thing by your country and help get rid of these destructive  vandals and traitors.
When you voted for the greens you were given a Poison Chalice that we may never recover from.

Remember that 173 people were burnt to death because of ‘greens’ policies forced on councils who were too weak to deny them.
Also the destruction of over 300 homes and the displacement of over 7000 people.
The Greens have NOT been responsible for even one environmental improvement. They are a farce and liars.
If Australia could  reduce its total CO2 emissions (a harmless gas essential to all life) by 20% as they want to, it would make a difference of .00000016%  or 16 parts per ten millionth to the increase of CO2 in air per year. NOT even measurable.
Following are two similar reports and I urge you to read them and  realise this is not some ‘Wild story. Our future is now in your hands. You are the ones who MUST REJECT the greens and do everything to revoke your vote and stop the communist greens before it is too late.

You'll be voting to end "the mining and export of uranium", worth $900 billion a year.

 You'll be demanding farmers "remove as far as possible" all GM crops, which includes cotton worth about $1.3 billion a year.

You will be voting to close down many other industries, including export of woodchips from old-growth forests, certain kinds of fishing, oil and mineral exploration in wildernesses, and new coal mines.

You'll even be voting to close the Lucas Heights nuclear facility, even though it actually produces treatments for cancer.

In fact, you'll be voting for policies deliberately intended to make us poorer. Less industrialised. Or as the Greens' policy puts it, for a "reduction of Australia's use of natural resources to a level that is sustainable and socially just".

Maybe you think it won't matter if a few industries get shut. Maybe you really are that stupid. But you haven't heard the rest of the Greens' policies yet, have you?

You see, the Greens also plan to shut coal power stations that produce 80 per cent of our electricity. They not only "oppose the establishment of new coal-fired power stations" - claiming they make the planet dangerously hot - but intend to ban new coal supplies for those we already have. And they'll hit power stations with a new tax to make electricity too expensive for you.

Do you have any idea how many businesses would be driven broke by this Green frolic? How many hundreds of thousands of jobs would be lost?

If you think the Greens must have alternative power sources in mind, you're dreaming.
The Greens want to keep Labour’s ban on nuclear power. They even want to scrap government-funded research into carbon capture.

So consider. If the Greens get their way we'll have huge industries banned, businesses driven broke and power prices driven through the roof, with not enough electricity for what industries will be left.

So, with our income slashed to ribbons, what do the Greens propose? Not deep cuts in every government program but a spending spree to make Kevin Rudd seem a miser.
It's free money for everyone. If you vote for the Greens, you're voting for an extra week of holidays for all, "mandated shorter standard working hours", more pay for women workers, higher pay for casuals and better weekly benefits to students and artists.

More pay for less work, at the mere stroke of a Green pen. Isn't that a darling way to reorganise the economy? What could possibly go wrong?

Another $2 billion a year will go to scrap tertiary fees and forgiving all HECs debts.
The Greens lazily assume that the bill will be covered by hiking corporate taxes, hitting the richer 5 per cent of Australians with wealth taxes, and slugging air travellers. Show us your costings, Bob.

I'd be amazed if after a year of two of this that anyone would want to come to a country which by then would be a smoking hole in the ground.

Yet the Greens plan to do their best to attract more people to their new nation of freeloaders. Any "asylum seeker" making it here by boat would be freed into the community within 14 days, security checks permitting, and rewarded with benefits, medical services and school for children. These goodies will be offered to "environmental refugees", too.

A new, militant industrial agenda is also buried in this New Age madness, signalling the arrival in Brown's party of "watermelon Greens" - green outside and red inside.

These, like NSW candidate Lee Rhiannon, seem Green more of convenience than faith, using this doctors' wives party to smuggle in the kind of hard-Left politics that would scare voters if they saw it coming under a hammer and sickle.

This is what a vote for the Greens really means. And it's this party of vandals, tribalists and closet totalitarians that shameless Labour now helps to such threatening influence.. (Ends).

Green Tasmanian Senator Christine Milne recently stated on an ABC 7.30 Report: “We want to see a carbon price as quickly as possible because we want transformation of the whole economy and society”.


The Greens' policies would destroy the Australian economy
Gerard Jackson
BrookesNews.Com

Monday 16 August 2010
Senator Bob Brown has emerged as a destructive parasite. A green fanatic living at the public trough whose economic wish list would destroy the Australian standard of living, which is exactly what it is intended to do. Not only has the media overlooked just how elitist and loony Brown's green economics really are so have our rightwing.
In a letter to The Australian (27 June 1991) he revealed his appalling economic illiteracy by defining logging and mining as "resource robbery". According to this brilliant economic theorist and economic
 historian Tasmania is an example of a "post-industrial" society (despite the fact that the state had never been industrialized) because the economy "is not based on dinosaur industries like pulp mills, zinc mills and aluminium mills." (Italics added.)
It completely escaped the attention of this genius that without pulp mills there would be no paper, and certainly no newspapers to promote his lunacy, The same man who uses numerous electrical appliances, drives a car, travels by train, ship and plane, uses computers and cell phones is the same man who seriously asserts that — what he sneeringly calls — the "extraction industries" that supply the raw materials for these devices can be shut down without lowing wages and raising the unemployment rate.
Critics rightly point out the massive cost in terms of lost export earnings if Brown's lunatic policies were implemented. But they miss a vital point: these industries are at the very highest stage of the capital structure. This means closing them down would also close down manufacturing because their products are vital inputs for the lower stages of production that produce capital goods, intermediate goods and consumer goods? (Brown's ludicrous attitude towards the primary sector reminds me of Ralph Nader's insane idea that America's petrochemical industry "might need to be abolished.")
Closing down these industries makes as much economic sense as arguing that we don't need agriculture chewing up the environment because we have plenty of supermarkets to provide us with food. Of course, closing down mining means shutting down the export trade to China.
 That Beijing might consider this a form of green economic warfare has evidently not occurred to Brown. China is not going to allow anyone or any ideology to sabotage its economic development. As Otto Maller said: "If soldiers are not to cross international boundaries, goods must do so". Anyone who ignores the international ramifications of the greens' proposals is not fit to be in politics.
Nothing illustrates Brown's green fanaticism more than his mad proposal to shut down the coal-fuelled power stations that produce 80 per cent of our electricity. He wants to tax these power stations out of existence and put a permanent ban on them.
So where will the electricity come from? According to Brown and his fellow fanatics solar and wind will easily fill the gap.
It seems that Brown goes along with Nader's asinine opinion that "the only reason why solar energy has not yet been developed is that the oil companies don't own the sun". The real reason is that these phony alternatives are horrendously inefficient. They face insurmountable economic and natural obstacles. Even if they were 100 per cent technically efficient they would still be incapable of overcoming their massive economic and technical shortcomings. The problem is that solar power is extremely dilute and terribly irregular. This is why even if it operated at 100 per cent efficiency it still could not compete because the material and land requirements of solar plants dwarf those of centralised power stations, making the difference in costs between the two a staggering amount*.
(Brown's support of solar energy also reveals his hypocrisy. Although he considers power stations to be a blot on the landscape he thinks consuming hundreds of square miles of land to generate the same amount of electricity that a power station generates on a few acres is a good environmental policy. He also believes that "urban sprawl" — what used to be called urban development — should be halted and the little people forced to accept crowded housing conditions. So according to this oily sanctimonious hypocrite new urban estates are bad but covering the land with solar collectors is absolutely marvellous.)
It is an inescapable fact that the very nature of solar technology makes economies of scale impossible because where power stations enjoy indivisibilities that give them economies of scale (average costs fall as output increases) solar and wind complexes suffer terrible diseconomies of scale because they have no indivisibilities, meaning that as they expand the average cost of production rises. The result will be a massive and unsustainable rise in energy prices. (Friends of the CSI smeared me as a "technological pessimist" for pointing out the preceding facts.) A more savage and calculated attack on the standard of living would be difficult to conceive.
Let us recall that even though President Obama publicly admitted that moving over to solar and wind would cause "electricity prices to rocket" (explode is more like it) Brown still insists on lying through his teeth about the devastating effect his energy policy would have on electricity prices and hence the Australian economy. In reference to Tasmania he argues "that it is in the green-backed arena of … labour intensive … small businesses that Tasmania's future job creation lies."
Judging by other comments he has made this view must also extend to the rest of the country. But any honest assessment of his policy leads to the inexorable conclusion that the economy would be shattered and the standard of living reduced to an abject level. And Bob Brown has the gall to assert that he wants to see "the elimination of poverty and an end to the exploitation of children and other vulnerable people."
It has to be understood that real wages are determined by the ratio of capital-land to labour. The higher the ratio the higher will be the standard of living. (By land the economists is referring to its output.) Therefore, as an economy becomes more capital intensive real wages will continue to rise. Brown's policies would virtually make the land inaccessible for development while simultaneously destroying most of the country's capital structure. The effect would be a severe drop in the ratio of capital-land to labour which would drive down real wage rates. In other words, Brown's policies are designed to turn Australia into a labour intensive economy, a fact that he has already admitted.
Other greens have readily conceded that this is their real goal. In their utopia industry will be small-scale and labour-intensive; water, wind and solar power will replace central power generation; communities will be small, largely ,self-sufficient and the large-scale division of labour will be a thing of the past. But our ancestors once lived in such an 'idyllic society' — it was called the Dark Ages where poverty was wretched and life for the masses was "...poor, nasty brutish and short." It was economic growth that lifted the Western masses out of the misery and poverty of what was once their lot and gave them the highest living standards in history. Living standards vastly superior to that enjoyed by any medieval monarch or eastern despot. And now the greens want to destroy that progress.
Jeremy Rifkin, another green fanatic in the mould of Bob Brown, was open about the consequences of green economic policies for the standard of living, confessing that "production will center on goods required to maintain life." However, he did not say who would decide what these goods would be. (I bet Bob Brown could tell him.)
Ernest Callenbach's book Ecotopia was brutally honest about green aims to savagely lower living standards. In his environmental paradise the standard of living will have been massively cut and energy prices kept deliberately high. In case anyone should think that Callenbach's views are out of keeping with what passes for mainstream thinking in green intellectual circles, Ralph Nader, the white knight of the green movement, gave it his stamp of approval. So when Bob Brown tells you that he just wants a "reduction of Australia's use of natural resources to a level that is sustainable and socially just" try to cut through the weasel language and grasp what he really means.
There is no doubt in my mind that Brown is a dangerous fanatic and a callous liar with a vicious ideology that would cause absolute misery if not checked. He needs to be exposed and exposed now.

*The effects of a carbon tax on electricity prices has been calculated by adding the carbon tax per ton to the total costs of electricity generation. Instructive as this approach is it overlooks the vitally point important point that it is impossible for so-called green energy to replace centralised power generation. It is more than likely that the economy would implode before the coal-fuelled power stations could even be priced out of existence. Nevertheless, Christine Milne, Brown's fellow fanatic, proposes that a carbon tax be continually raised on these energy sources until they are forced into bankruptcy. She demanded this be the case by 2020. In effect, she is demanding that within 10 years 80 per cent of our electricity generating capacity must be destroyed.
