Good thing Australia is leading the way

Thank heavens for Australian government.  Where would the world be without them.

Just remember, Australia’s carbon emissions are approximately 560 million tonnes per annum and all the current pain is from reductions to electricity emissions with transport and agriculture to come.

When done, we will all be sitting in the dark at home, unable to travel, wrapped in hemp blankets (to keep warm) and eating tofu.  It will have to be domestically produced tofu because the AUD will be worthless once coal and iron ore exports are banned.

Yes.  The increase in global emissions last year are more than the total Australia produces and Australia is arguing about reducing 10% of this.

Brilliant.  Just brilliant.

    All just BS! If voters want it. Let there be dark.

    Four Corners tonight …

    Climate of Change:

    “Four Corners walks you through key areas of everyday life and industrial production which fuel our carbon emissions – from the cars we drive, the animals we breed to gas we export.

    The program investigates whether Australia is on track to deliver on the targets the nation has pledged to fulfil, and what effect the policies of successive governments have had on our emissions.”

    Further evidence that solar, wind and taxes can not prevent the climate from changing.

    You are disinforming us, TAKAS.
    In order to produce tofu, it is necessary to have soy beans.
    In order to have soybeans it is necessary to plant, maintain and harvest them.
    That requires fossil fuels, as well as fertiliser.
    There will be none of that under the Paris excrement.

    This is madness, obviously they intend to turn us all into Serfs in a Third World nation. Poor fellow my country.

    All ABC facilities should be discontinued from the grid. Let the bastards survive on their own renewables.

  6. stackja

    Snoopy – ABC will always be powered by coal. They aren’t stupid. Just the people who support ABC are.

    Defenders (of Socialism) claim they don’t want complete, or “real” socialism, but selective socialism in areas where they anticipate benefiting at the expense of others.

    And how much CO2 is generated naturally by the non mammalian world? What percentage of the total is attributable to human activity? Cork a cow or cork a volcano? Or just cork the f’ing politicians.
    Vote last – Liberal greens, Labor greens and the watermelon greens. Treasonous pond life all.

    Bazinga ,used to be the death penalty , suppose now its 250 year sentence suspended for 120 years and $500 out of the poor box to take your taxpayer funded legal aid lawyers to maccas for a celebratory lunch . I favour the guillotine ,cheap and easy to make and very effective , they are a bit messy but nothing a firehouse wont fix , no person who has been guillotined has ever committed another crime

    So is there anyone out there still laboring under the delusion that these disgusting Quisling crackpots haven’t declared war on our way of life?

    Australia is fucked with the politicians we currently employ!!!!!!!! although the future employees are even worse.. as I said we are fucked

    I wonder if it would help if Australia was less urbanised, in the big city sense. It seems to encourage centralised power. Not just federally but also within the states. Here in WA, Perth has a massive but poorly developed hinterland and the government is mostly city centric.

  15. Boambee John

    That is a major problem.

    There is a simple first step, however, it would require the Nationals to bargain hard with whichever of the major parties has most HoR seats after thd next election.

    Divide each state into two Senate “electorates” (this can be done by Parliament, it does not require a Constitutional change). One electorate to be based on the major urban conurbanation in the state, eg, Gold/Sunshine Coast/Brisbane in Queensland, Newcastle/Sydney/Wollongong in NSW, the other to be the rest of the state. Each to elect three seators at a half senate election, six at a double dissolution.

    This would reduce the power of the urban conurbations.

    Would the Liars or Labor Lite value being in power enough to do it?

  16. How would such a Senate look like?

    Only major parties, I fear.

    Yes, it would.

    Permit me a generalisation: you’ll find many more independent thinkers in rural and regional Australia than in the cities, where a hive mind seems to have taken over (or is it simply the avoidance of controversy due to fear of the Left?).

    One of the visions of Bob Santamaria, a great Australian, was a decentralised Australia.

  18. My Senate solution:

    1. More States.
    2. One national list of candidates.
    3. Votes weighted inversely to population per State.
    4. Abolish the ACT as a political entity, make it administrative one, remove their Senators.
    5. The trade-off for less Senate voting power is greater autonomy at the local level.
    6. Set 4 and 8 year terms for the House and Senate, (probably) keeping half-elections.
    7. Or, SORTITION, baby!

  19. Ƶĩppʯ (ȊꞪꞨV)

    Oh yes – a really good thing! Meanwhile China is building coal power again.

    So when they promised to cut back them’s were weasel words.

  20. Tim Neilson

    So when they promised to cut back them’s were weasel words.

    Sort of. I believe that the Chicoms said they’d reduce their CO2 output per unit of production.

    So building new more efficient coal fired power stations increases production and increases CO2, but the average CO2 per unit of production drops.

    This was a “diplomatic” solution, so the Chicoms could continue doing what they would have done anyway, but the spivs could lie to the western world’s voters that China had committed to reductions.

  21. Dr Fred Lenin

    We should be very proud or something for the quality of career politicians we have forced on us ,we are on a par with other Western countries . The USA has its absolutely crazy decromat crims assisted by the Rino crims ,the UK has the left wing conservatives and communist labour and gangrene crims who are trying to destroy Brexit . The EU is ruled by unelected retired career political failures who are fascists to the core .
    We have the left wing liberals paving the way for the communist alp/ gangrene coalition . Its like a flesh eating disease slowly eating away p our freedoms and forcing us into communist fascist globalist unelected rule. Abolish career politics and political gangs (parties).start the cleansing of society.

    Soy take ‘way too much water to produce, so we won’t have tofu. Using water is haram. We must think of the poor water molecules consumed by ebil humans! Is PETA concerned about water molecules? I’m sure they will be if someone offers to donate money for the cause.

  23. Please. “Globalist”. Please define or o_O squinting will intensify and I will assume the worst.

    Just remember, Australia’s carbon emissions are approximately 560 million tonnes per annum and all the current pain is from reductions to electricity emissions with transport and agriculture to come.

    I just tried to get a clearing permit (freehold land) for 300 hectares consisting of 98% ‘Invasive Native Vegetation’. The brand spanking new regulation (NSW) – Land Management (Native Vegetation) 2018 – states under a new formula that for 1 ha I want to clear I MUST GIVE UP 3 HECTARS of undeveloped freehold land to a restrictive covenant (Set-Aside) IN PERPETUTY against the title.

    This amounts to a $500.00 per ha ($450,000:00) gift in land tenure to the State Government via reduced land value alone. I had my developed & undeveloped land valued in October 2018 due to extra financing needed to cover our changed circumstances due to the severity of this never ending drought.

    Needless to say, Local Land Services representatives (all growed up 20 to 25 yr old’s) are still pulling their collective heads out of their arses as I requested that that’s where they stick it.

    The sooner we completely destroy our economy the better. Once the lifters stop lifting the leaners will start to feel the pinch. A cold and hungry welfare recipient might then realise that the free stuff labor offers is non existent once there are no jobs to allow the lifter to lift and therefore assure the largess they have come to enjoy!

    Just listened to some goose on the ABC today from the NRMA preaching for a totally electric fleet by 2015. Where do we find these clowns?

    No Greens, more rural residents, would be my hope.

    However, your frirndly local coincil would still value the lot for rating purposes, I’ll guarantee.

    Rob MW,
    Welcome to the club. I had to sterilize 280 ha in order to clear a further 250 ha (of a 1500ha title in WA). It was an 18 yr battle, courts & lawyers etc.
    The process is the punishment.

    And not a hint there of identifying ANY of the real consequences of achieving those targets.

    “Good thing Australia is leading the way”

    A very apt title for this thread, because the arguments now being advanced for ‘Straya’s kamikaze climate change policies are much the same as the arguments put forward, a generation or so ago, for slashing tariffs – i.e. plucky little ‘Straya will lead the world into the broad sunlit uplands of fair and free globalism, and all those dreadful “old economy” jobs in our Dickensian factories will be replaced by fabulous cutting edge, high-paid, high-skilled techno jobs.

    We’re still waiting for the former promised miracle to eventuate, and now a new generation of spivs and spinners are telling us that all we need to do is subsidise electric cars, (further) penalise petrol cars, and we will miraculously have a world-leading electric car production industry – a small, isolated, high-cost economy is just the place for that to happen, of course.

    No, we are not. The miracle has simply been squandered by Kevin07, Ken Henry and all governments since.

    The miracle was of uninterrupted growth from 1993 to 2007 with low inflation, low and improving unemployment, and eventually budget surpluses (given to the incoming ALP 🙁 ). They collectively enabled Australia to survive the so-called GFC.

    Sorry, but you didn’t recognise it when we were living through it.
