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.
ANYWAY THE STUMP IS OFF TO BURN SOME RUBBER IN THE UTE TO BEAT ALL UTES (V8 OF COURSE) AND PERHAPS SHOOT SOME SMALL FURRY CREATURES.
