CLIMATE CHANGE ECONOMY

Economist and Reserve Bank of Australia board member Warwick McKibbin warns the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme is "fundamentally unstable", the price of permits will be "inherently volatile" and the Copenhagen agenda is in "total disarray". "The political fallout from this is going to lead to changes," he says.

For geographical and political reasons, Australia does not have the hydro or nuclear alternatives to replace coal-fired baseload electricity. That makes it more costly for us to cut emissions compared with the US, Europe and Japan. That increases the risk of "leakage" of our carbon-intensive industries offshore to developing economies, such as China, where emissions restrictions are less stringent.

Gee, and you had to an Economist and Reserve Bank Member to figure that out? The Stump challenges anyone to demonstrate where China, Indonesia, Thailand or Philipines are taking any serious steps about their environment or that they see this Carbon Trading Scam as anything but free cash for free mansions for the parasite elite.

Economic suicide brought to you by your Union Run Leftists.

Once again...This will reduce the Climate Change by HOW MUCH?

LIAR LIAR

It would appear the Cult of Climate Change is beginning to collapse under the litany of lies, fibs and distortions. Skeptics now outnumber the believers and one is reminded of the old adage "You can fool some of the people some of the time.........." The really sad thing is the untold damage the rabid green cloaked, hard left, social engineers have done to the cause of environmental responsibility and to the poor.



Oooohhh You Fibbers!!!

By the way Australia, latest figures from the treasury report that the ETS to be implemented by the Worst Government in Australia's History reveal that electricity prices will need to raised by 25%-30%. Are you ready for another $400 month bill? Or course, the government (?) has promised the poor won't be any worse off because they will supplement the cost with tax cuts. Yea right...at the same time they try and pay off the biggest self created national debt since World War 2.

Meanwhile..the ETS will have zero effect on climate and the rest of SE Asia laughs as jobs are off shored! Thats what happens when you elect a government with no one person who has ever held a job in private industry in their lives.

There is a popular revolt going on...watch this space!

Id-ul-Adha


"What mean and cruel things men can do for the love of God"

'Id-ul-Adha' is almost amongst us again here in Indonesia. This of course is the ritual slaying of animals in often cruel and unusual ways. Suddenly everyman jack (Abdul)is a qualified butcher and dresser of meat.

In reality, it’s a day blood and cruelty as unqualified yobs hack at the throats of animals with little idea of what they are doing or how to kill in humane fashion. More unsettling is the hordes of little children dragged along to witness dad revel in an orgy of blood n gristle.

Id-ul-Adha is also one of weirder religious celebrations, essentially drawn from the story of the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice his son Ismael as an act of obedience to Allah. Allah being the merciful (?) bloke that he is reputed to be (despite the floods, fires and earthquakes) sends an Angel at the last minute who tells Ibrahim that he can swap the killing of the child for the blood of an animal. The bible has a similar story with just enough changes to avoid copyright issues.

Now no-one really explains how the child felt about this nor how terrifying a child qualifies as a merciful God but the cynic in Stump can just imagine the conversation a couple of months later:

Dad.. “Come on Son, let’s go for a walk”
Ismael..”Eeer ..oh oh…you been hearing them voices again Dad”
Dad.. “Come on Son…time to go”
Ismael.. “Gulp… Can I bring the goat”?

Nope, it’s just the Stump but there is nothing in the story that inspires anything but revulsion.

To the animals just one word…………..RUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN.

P.S. We knocked the picture off from one of the Nuttier Christian Sites coz we could. Doesn't make you just feel at peace with the world.

CLIMATE DENIERS

Ah.. The ever pressing Spooner..


Meanwhile, in order to preen itself in front of world stage of willy wonkers, Australian Prime Minister Kevin "look at me" Rudd is about to inflict another pointless tax on the people who can least afford it

"KEVIN Rudd’s Emissions Trading Scheme will increase the average family’s bills by about $1100 a year. Based on the Federal Government’s own modelling..."

Ask the question yet again..This ETS will make exactly how much difference to the world climate???????????????????????????????????????????????? The Stump wonders how long it will take for the average and granted they are slow learners Labour party supporter to realise touchy feely wank hurts the little people not the big shots strumming the tune they dance to.

The following for your enjoyment:

Mick Kelly, Professor of Climate Change at Jones’ university, on hiding recent cooling:

"Anyway, I’ll maybe cut the last few points off the filtered curve before I give the talk again as that’s trending down as a result of the end effects and the recent cold-ish years. "

Climate Change Dogma


The thing about Global Warming, Global Cooling, Climate Change (Insert your fear point here) is the sheer nonsense spoken. The Stump is not a scientist is it really to much to expect that someone says “hey hang on” as time and again politicians seeking the meaning of life and loony social engineers continue to spout their particular agenda with no call to accountability.

The Dog Catcher cum Australian Prime Minister KRudd on November 7 told us Storm surges and rising sea levels put at risk over 700,000 homes and businesse by 2100, thanks to unchecked global warming.

Environment Minister and Power Dresser Penny Wong on November 14 told us almost 250,000 homes, now worth up to $63 billion, will be “at risk of inundation” by the end of the century, under “worst-case but plausible” predictions of rising sea levels.

Ok, so in a week, 450,000 homes are no longer at risk or are we just making this sh*t up as we go along?

Has anyone else noticed that only cute puppies and butterflies are rendered extinct by Global Warming? How come funnel web spiders, cock roaches and other nasties never get a mention? Not heart rendering enough perhaps?

Now the Stump is all for the environment but does anyone seriously believe the current toss in Copenhagen will be anything but anti-western grandstanding by developing nations and a publicity fest for a bunch of green policy wonk politicians.

Already Indonesia (along with the usual suspects) has its hand out for a bunch of cash, Africa virtually as whole has demanded its contribution to saving the environment is to load plane loads of cash from loony western governments as they continue to destroy the whole African Continent in a orgy of greed, corruption and abuse.

Seriously, does anyone think that providing another barrel load of unaccountable cash to these basket-case nations will save one dang tree?
If we are to be serious about improving the environment perhaps it is time to be serious and stop the drongo guilt aid to unaccountable governments who have made no attempt to better the lives of their people and their environment.

Quick reality check..If we donate 1 BILLION DOLLARS next month to the following countries:
1. China
2. India
3. Indonesia
The difference in 5 years would be?
Then why bother?

Oh and by the way, do ask your next raving social engineer to direct you to any graph that demostrates a warming of the earth since 2001...Oh Oh.

WHY ARE WE HERE

WHY ARE WE HERE!!!

Well now that reason has been exposed and the omni-disaster bloke has nothing to do with it.


MORE OF THE DARK SIDE



For Indonesia, some say East Timor remains a scaly scab that just won't go away. No doubt the pathetic attempts to address the issue of East Timor and what happened during the Indonesian Occupation is a continual source of embarrassment to Indonesia that ever reminds the world that, in Indonesia if you have enough influence and power then you remain untouchable.

One things for certain if they do release the movie in Indonesia it is sure to raise the temperature of debate between Australua and Indonesia.



Indonesian censors consider Balibo ban
(From AAP)


INDONESIA'S censors have formed a special team to decide whether to allow the politically sensitive Australian movie about the Balibo Five to be shown in the country.

The Indonesian government has declared Robert Connolly's Balibo "offensive'' and the Indonesian military has urged the country's censorship board, the LSF, to ban it.

The movie depicts Indonesian soldiers brutally murdering five Australia-based newsmen in the East Timor border town in 1975.

The movie, which is in the running for 14 AFI awards, contradicts the official Indonesian explanation they were killed in crossfire.

But the organisers of the Jakarta International Film Festival (JIFF), which kicks off next month, want to show the movie despite the possible controversy it could generate.

The have submitted the movie to the LSF, which has formed a special team to decide whether the thriller is too politically sensitive for Indonesian audiences.

The LSF prevented the JIFF screening several films about East Timor in 2006 because of similar concerns. But organisers are optimistic Balibo will be approved.

The film's release in Australia earlier this year came just weeks before federal police announced they would conduct a formal war crimes investigation into the Balibo killings, a move that sparked some diplomatic tensions.

The probe follows a 2007 coronial inquest that concluded Indonesian deliberately killed the journalists to cover up their invasion of East Timor.

State of Darkness



It’s highly amusing watching the denizens of Jakarta moaning about Power Outages and infrastructure failures. What the hell do they think the provinces have been putting up with for years?

Diddums, Jakas! The reality is you cannot hide the failing infrastructure, inept management and graft forever. A lot of very ugly and angry chickens are coming home to roost. Jakarta's spoilt elite has managed to avoid the issue for years by sucking the last available resources from the provinces but even that little goody bag is running dry. Never the less, in a variation of the "let them eat cake" mindset of the rich and arrogant, the Stump doubts the worms in trough realise will how bad things are until it is way past dark.

As a matter of interest, has anyone noticed despite the perilous state of power generation this has has not stopped PLN Power Brokers from getting their nice new shiny cars. Wouldn't it be wonderful to see the last ten years of Power Generation Infrastructure Contracts be "GECKOED"

REMEMBRANCE DAY


Remembrance Day

Julia Gillard Acting Prime Minister of Australia when asked when she could not attend a Remembrance Day Service today..

"There couldn't be anything more important than this national conversation because it's about the future for every child and every school and we want to make sure that's a better future,"

"I was here (at parliament) today with the national conversation with school principals.

"(But) we did mark Remembrance Day with a minute's silence."

Oh you did observe a minutes silence did you Julia, how bloody noble and giving of you and such a personal sacrifice. Of course, we should not be surprised at the lack of regard the current government holds its fallen, after all the PM KRUDD himself was quite miffed a when told the ANZAC Day Dawn Service could not be delayed a few minutes because he had schedule clash.

Perhaps featherweights like Julie should also spend a minute and reflect exactly why she can spend time in national conversation in a free and democratic country.

Perhaps a reminder for the those who enjoy the sacrifices of those before them.

In Flander's Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flander's fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep,
tho poppies grow
In Flander's fields.

Liet. -Col. John McCrae

Firefighters and global warming

Now the critics of the Rudd Government in Australia said that following the election of these drongos would lead to a rash of UNION claims the like of which drove Victoria broke in the 80s...Now that is just unfair..

"MELBOURNE'S firefighters should be paid extra for turning up to work sober, according to a log of claims by their union.

The Victorian branch of the United Firefighters Union is also calling for a "global warming allowance" for the city's 1600 firefighters, "in recognition of the increased work and risk to firefighters as a result of global warming". It is also demanding extra pay for firefighters if they have to work when a pandemic is declared."

So let's see if the Stump has this right?

Melbourne Fire Fighters want allowance not to turn up drunk at work and allowance to fight fires?

Mmmm How about a counter proposal..You turn up drunk, youre fired. No Fires No Pay. Sounds fair to the Stump.

One has to feel sorry for the real firefighters forced into joing this union run by morons.

MINISTER FOR SLIMEY HANDSHAKES

Another Australian Labor Party Fraud spreads the filth:

Defence Minister John Faulkner last night gave US General David Petraeus one of Australia's highest honours, the Order of Australia, for his distinguished service against terrorism in the Iraq war.

Only six years ago, Senator Faulkner had opposed the war and challenged claims that Iraq posed a terrorist threat.

During a censure motion in parliament against the Howard government, he described the decision to send 2000 troops as "unilateral adventurism" and a "confidence trick".

"It was a different story at the Australian ambassador's residence in Washington last night.

As a minister in the Rudd government, Senator Faulkner praised General Petraeus, the man responsible for the successful military surge in Iraq that gave him his promotion to chief of US Central Command.

"Tonight we recognise it was you, General Petraeus, who designed and implemented the strategy which delivered success in the war," Senator Faulkner said. "This award recognises your achievement."

The Defence Minister called General Petraeus a person of integrity and reputation who had "greatly strengthened the Australian and United States military relationship".

Faulkner as far as the Stump is concerned you don't deserve to carry a swag for an Aussie Digger let alone act as a the Defence Minister...

THE CLIMATE IS TAXING

So are you ready to start paying your UN tax next year (wasn’t there a revolution about no taxation without representation?)

The world nutters conference daft Copenhagen treaty treaty has such little treats in store for us all

“Clause after complicated clause sets out the requirement that developed countries to pay their “adaptation debt” to developing countries. Clause 33 on page 39 says that by 2020 the scale of financial flows to support adaptation in developing countries must be at least $US67 billion ($73bn), or in the range of $US70bn to $US140bn a year.

How developed countries will pay is far from clear. The draft text sets out various alternatives, including Option 7 on page 135, which provides for “a (global) levy of 2 per cent on international financial market (monetary) transactions to Annex I Parties”

Of course there are no obligations on where or how this money is to be used once scammed. Well the Stump rest easy knowing that the United Nations has always been gem of responsible fiscal management and we should have nothing to few.

On the lunacy of over bearing hyperbole, anyone seen the new commercials to be aired in UK where little puppy dogs keel over and rabbits drown as the children are encouraged to berate their parents for not embracing the green climate change lobby. The Stump has been trying to think what was the name of last political movement that rewarded children for spying and reporting their parents to the authorities for trangressions. Hmmm never mind it will come to us.

Ok, but why is always the cutesy furry little creatures, how come the horrid little leeches and wharf rats never get any sympathy!

Late News…No Islands sank today or yesterday or any time in the past ten years and the planet has been cooling since 2001 never the less for goodness sake move your rabbits to the high ground.

USS NEW YORK -

This is kinda cool...it would set a fairly proud tradition for a ship from the word go. There would not be many servicemen of any nation who would not salute when she passes by.

"THE USS New York, a naval vessel whose bow was forged in part with steel from the World Trade Center towers destroyed on 9/11, has sailed for the first time into the city's harbour.

The newly built 208m amphibious assault ship, designed to carry up to 800 marines and helicopters, marked its maiden voyage into New York with a 21-gun salute just off Ground Zero.

Thousands gathered along the Hudson River to remember the nearly 3000 people killed on September 11, 2001 and to salute the ship, whose bow section contains 7.5 tonnes of steel from the towers destroyed by the hijacked airliners."
