Carbon taxing


…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

It is depressing indictment of human stupidity on the one hand and of the human greed on the other, that almost ten years after Senator James Inhofe (Rep-Oklahoma) asked in the US Senate: “With all of the hysteria, all of the fear, all of the phony science, could it be that man-made global warming is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people?” the hoax is alive and well, in particular in Australia. The so called ‘carbon tax’ imposed on the docile population by the Green/Labor government will accelerate dismantling of the already rapidly diminishing productive part of the economy, further reduce the living standards of average Australians and assist the expansion of bureaucracy. The Clean Energy Legislative Package, also know as a dog’s breakfast or a lawyers’ delight, is comprised of many acts with orwelian names such as Clean Energy Act, Clean Energy Regulator Act and Climate Change Authority Act. No, Shining Path to Eternal Happiness and Permanent Prosperity Act is not there. Yet.

Whilst Tony Abbott, at present the leader of the Federal opposition, promised to repeal it all upon attaining the power, nobody should take too much comfort in that. Firstly – politicians do lie. Secondly – it was the Liberal/National government which came up with the Mandatory Renewable Energy Target, an idiocy out of which carbon taxing seamlessly flows. Thirdly – money raised by the tax would be handy, and lastly – a vote for Abbott might turn out to be a vote for Malcolm Turnbull, an ALP Trojan horse in the Liberal Party.

So it is with deep sense of futility that I ask you to view the video of a Canadian journalist, Ms Donna Laframboise’s presentation, toured through Perth, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne recently. By now, it ought not to be necessary. Alas …

If you happen to agree with what Ms Laframboise is saying, you are, according to The New York Times, stupid. That is, in my humble and stupid opinion, a very high recommendation.

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.

    Abbott will not abandon the carbon tax. Nor will Turnbull.

    You cannot say the carbon tax isn’t working. Only three months of it and the planet cooled so much that we have snow in mid October…
