If ever we Americans needed a blueprint on what to do about this global warming hype used by politicians to usher in a sweeping socialistic wealth distribution policy it is now.
Australia offers up a very good example on what not to do as well as hindsight on what to do:
“The new Australian government, elected by a landslide on a platform opposing carbon taxes and “global-warming” schemes as United Nations climate theories were imploding, delivered a blunt message to UN alarmists this week: No more “socialism masquerading as environmentalism.” With the new conservative-leaning cabinet taking a stand against UN machinations and radical domestic restrictions imposed under the previous Labor Party government, Australian authorities also publicly refused to sign up for any new contributions, taxes, or charges at this week’s embattled UN global-warming summit in Poland. ” Read from the source New American
Fortunately Australia has been through the air and energy tax already and have sense rejected and kicked out many of the politicians who brought it about. Although they fell for the hype about global warming and voted for the tax they have now rejected and pushed all of those corrupt politicians from office in a landslide victory.
Imagine that the platform opposing politicians won on was a platform opposing the “carbon tax”. It wasn’t on real economic issues like loss of jobs, bad economy, etc. but on a manufactured system disguised to look like environmentalism but what was actually masqueraded Socialism.
This several billion dollar tax that hit Australia has a stepbrother just as bad that Obama disguises under environmental names to convince Americans we need as well. Supposedly, if we don’t allow Obama to triple your electricity rate with EPA regulations and CO2 carbon taxes the earth will catastrophically warm and sea levels will rise.
If the earth wasn’t in a 17 year cooling period Australians and Americans might still be buying it but the empirical evidence and thousands of scientists who disagree have persuaded many to think otherwise.
The sustainability environmentalism movement was brought into the Australian government successfully in the past and the voters allowed a massive CO2 emissions tax to occur which dramatically raised everyone’s electricity rate beyond anything previously thinkable.
Doesn’t what happened in Australia seem similar to the Obamacare fiasco? Didn’t many Americans vote for it because they thought it would be an Affordable Care Act?
The Australians had good intentions because they believed the government of Australia really did want to save the environment. Turns out CO2 emissions aren’t pollution at all and solar and wind energy barely puts a dent in reducing these emissions.
Do you realize the new Australian government was elected in a landslide after the carbon tax scheme had been in effect for a few years based on the main platform being ant-carbon tax? When citizens have several billion dollars stolen away from them with a lie that it is to save the environment they apparently sit up and take notice.
Let’s hope that the Australian experiment in this tax combined with the lies about Obamacare will allow Americans to not rest a blind eye regarding this same carbon tax the politicians will attempt to push here.
You can already see that in Texas they have allowed the EPA to regulate some coal power plants out of operation although this is being fought by some great Texas leaders.
In summary, Australia offers us an example of what we must do. We cannot vote for politicians who accept UN IPCC global warming as science as they were setup as a think-tank to prove global warming in order to justify a global energy tax. The UN IPCC is not an unbiased group of scientists but were set with the task of proving a theory and under this mandate they receive their funding. We as voters must elect those officials who are outspoken that they will not approve of the largest ever tax increase in American history via a tax on energy.
