Comments on: Unravelling a few of Australia’s climate change myths http://www.climateshifts.org/?p=6836 Science, climate change, coral reefs and the environment Mon, 31 Mar 2014 21:57:00 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.8.24 By: angels http://www.climateshifts.org/?p=6836#comment-2163 Wed, 17 Aug 2011 09:11:01 +0000 http://www.climateshifts.org/?p=6836#comment-2163 This is a great subject for us to talk about.

The point 5:A country that imposes a carbon price before its major trading partners will kill its export industries.

Firstly Margaret Thatcher does not support a carbon tax or any other bullshit based on the global warming myth!! She’s a sceptic!

1. Climate change policymaking is driven primarily by tree huggers and socialists.

yup – all my tree hugger socialist friends love it, mind you their faith is waning. My conservative friends reckon it’s all BS.

2. Since Australia only accounts for about 1.5 per cent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions, nothing that it does will make any practical difference to the Earth’s atmosphere.

True – Man’s emissions only account for 3% of the CO2 in the atmosphere and 1.5% of 3% is piss all. As usual he tries to beat up our emissions by using per head basis. Our emissions per head is deceptive, I’m not responsible for all the CO2 produced by large mining companies in WA and Queensland thank you.

4. Green policies can only do harm to the economy.

What a vague statement! If I produce steel and compete with Chinese steel makers and have to pay an additional carbon tax on my product I can no longer compete with my Chinese counterpart who BTW is using the same Australian coal without the tax.

5. A country that imposes a carbon price before its major trading partners will kill its export industries.

True – see 4.

Other countries have gone down this road already – and the roof has not fallen in.

yeah Spain went for renewables and is now a basket case. Germany spent 71 billion dollars on renewables and is now building new coal power stations as fast as it can because the nuclear power they buy from France to cover their shortfall is too expensive. Britain is becoming an energy basket case because all their damn wind mills are driving the nation crazy and don’t contribute any power on a meaningful basis. Last winter when they really needed power the wind turbines were frozen! They had to rely on France’s nuclear power like Germany and the rest of Europe.
