Womens Rights - Shuttlecocks Vote?

Stump has already enjoyed Moir's take on life. His latest on the elections in Afganistan. Funny and certainly asks (to the Stump anyway) Why do we bother? or is This is why we do bother!

For change in the Climate Change Discussion, let’s start by stating three facts that remain facts despite hockey stick graphs and rancid green hyperbole:

1. If Australia ceases CO2 emissions to ZERO then Australia will make ZERO change to World CO2 emission levels.

2. Governments do not create wealth, they merely redistribute (usually unfairly) the wealth efforts of others.

3. USA, Europe, Canada and Australia all have doubled their natural forest coverage over the last fifty years.

Yes, you read the first point right, ZERO for ZERO and yet to achieve this remarkable target Australians are going to be taxed an additional 12 Billion dollars at most conservative estimate. Oh don’t be dismayed to salve the pain of yet another piece of green inspired social lunacy, the taxes will be called and known by many tax payer funded names, carbon credits, concessions, cap and trade adjustments. However you can be sure, it will be the average bloke in the street (the one who still has a job) who will pay. The big electricity producer won’t be paying, he will claim his emission concession from the government, at the same time raising prices for a basic commodity to the man on the street .

Of course, the other piece of Macro lunacy and “greentime” dreaming is energy producers must (under the proposed legislation) must adopt 20% alternative energy by 2020. This is despite the fact that the huge white elephant wind farms in South Australia, New South Wales and Queensland simply failed to work in June 2009 due to no wind (so much for the theory, if we spread them far enough apart then some wind will always be blowing somewhere). That leaves us with Solar which unfortunately like the wind tends to work to its own agenda rather than the Stumps need to microwave . Things are looking mighty grim but we still have nuclear although that in turn has its own inherent problems which perhaps Australia could overcome but only a fool would consider as an option for the near neighbours at least until they can master something as technically simple as safe ferry travel.

Now invariably, the fence sitters on the Church of Climate Change will say even if the science is wrong, then it can’t hurt to clean up the planet. This is possibly the most dangerous position of all for the intellectually lazy to take. The grand global focus of CCC deflects billions (trillions) of dollars into grandiose, white elephants that create huge committees of experts who ultimately achieve nothing but more committees. As yourself what has Indonesia achieved since the CCC summit Bali two years ago, rainforests still disappearing at record rates, airports in neighbouring countries closed due to illegal burning off but they have achieved 120 delegates to dash off to Europe later this year.

In their rush for global domination, the rancid greens and their gullible devotees have forgotten that like politics all environmental issues are local. Instead of 12 Billion dollars on improbable (nay impossible) targets and dreams which ultimately will achieve ZERO for the worlds environment and make very little impact on the local environment, ask yourself how much real difference 12 Billion dollars would make on repairing the damage to the Murray-Darling river system. The Stump understands that the Rudd and Julia government is not big on actual return for expenditure but 12 Billion to achieve Zero compared with getting the River Murray flowing?

Unfortunately, the CCC is controlled more by pseudo socialist engineers than real environmentalists. You can pick these modern day Captain Nemos, by the way they link grandiose and utopian environmental demands to black arm band wearing versions of history where the “West” (read democracies and developed nations) must pay a collective guilt tax for their standard of living. Never mind the fact that the greatest contributors to CO2 emissions are countries whose development is retarded by combination of constant injections of Western Aid and corrupt, inept local officials. The absolute reality is no amount of hand wringing, revisionist history and carbon taxes is going to make a shred of difference until China, India and Indonesia (amongst others) acknowledge that pollution and environmental damage is their issue to face and not a commercial or Foreign Aid lever to be pulled at their leisure with no accountability. The rancid greens and social engineers who continue to foster such behaviour are a far greater threat to the Global Environment that Bill Turner’s flatulent cows outside of Black Stump Australia.

Climate Change and the Recession

Delusion: The art of selective reasoning and the inability to accept facts outside that clash with a complex fantasy world build up to support a position. Defined requirement of hard core leftists and devotes of the Snake Handling Church of Climate Change.
Well it was the end of capitalism and the free market as we know it! Socialism will save the world yet again. Funny as it is turning out to be simply a cleaning out of some thieves and all of us who thought you can make money from nothing.
Andrew Bolt, yet again came up with great quote from one of the English CCC “Scientists” when asked for access to the raw data for peer review..

“Even if WMO agrees, I will still not pass on the data. We have 25 or so years invested in the work. Why should I make the data available to you, when your aim is to try and find something wrong with it.”
Gotta love the CCC it really has adopted the policies of a religion based logic system.

Meanwhile, it’s distressing to find out 70% of Australians are idiots. As recent poll in Australia 70% of Australians thought the ETS (Carbon Tax) primarily based on taxing electricity generation, mining and (as of 2013) agriculture is a good idea.
Of course, any moron outside the latte inner city set could tell you that Australia’s economic advantage over the rest of the world it’s access to cheap power generating fuel, raw materials and agriculture. In a fit of country wide stupid, the Queensland Revenge PM and his butch queen CCC minister intend to sacrifice Australia’s future on dubious science and latte politics. Don’t forget even if the CCC was right, the ENTIRE CO 2 production of Australia is less than ½ of 1% of the world total. India, China and Indonesia must be laughing themselves silly at the stupid white kid from Queensland.

What is it about the Australian Labor Party and Earwax??
Fair Dinkum...What a bunch of No Hopers..

For those who don't know, the blubbering idiot getting his ears dewaxed by yet another of the socialist faithful is none other than Bob "No child shall live in Poverty" Hawke. I would have thought with the new movie on East Timor coming out no previous leader of the Australian Sellout Party would be game to be seen in public.

HABOUR BRIDGE - Pssst You want to buy Mister..

Regular readers of the Stump will know that the Church of Global Warming ...oops Sorry Climate Change tend to annoy the stump along with anyone with a modicum of intelligence.

With the irritating and irrational arrogance of all religious cults, anyone who has the gall to question any of their increasingly silly exaggerations is instantly condemned as a heretic who only wants to see the world destroyed in flash of coal and plastic induced flames. Seriously, how could anyone take these acolytes of the asinine at face value? Unfortunately, the many governments in a never ending quest to look important have done just that.

A Josh (he would be called that wouldn’t he) Gordon reports in the Melbourne Age yesterday

“THE Federal Government has warned that Australian icons such as the Great Barrier Reef, Kakadu National Park, the Tasmanian wilderness, Carlton Gardens and the Sydney Opera House could be damaged irreparably if the Coalition fails to support Labor’s emissions trading scheme.”

So if the Opposition party in Australia does not support the vague, poorly constructed, jod destroying Labor Party ETS, the Sydney Harbour Bridge will fall and Carlton Gardens (For Fcks sake!!!) will disappear. Nope, the Stump cannot see any Hyperbole here. Dang and these are the leaders?? of Australia.

Now for the ETS is economic insanity itself, with the Labor Party rushing headlong to price Australian Industry out of business by setting Carbon Trading Targets well beyond any comparable nation in the world including China, Indonesia, Japan, USA, and India. Despite the fact that even if the cultists are correct, Australia contributes less than ½ of 1% to the total CO2 in the Atmosphere. This apparently all the loony rabid greens and social engineers need to justify putting tens of thousands Australians out of work and double the tax burden of those poor suckers left to carry the load. You can bet those pushing the ETS are well and truly wedged into the OPM (other people’s money) gravy train.
