Promised to Repeal the Carbon Tax, Still the Most Unpopular Prime Minister Ever.

His promise to repeal the Carbon Tax played a big part in getting him into power, yet Tony Abbott has succeeded in completely destroying his credibility and popularity within a very short time-frame. Thousands of angry and upset Australians turned out to protest last Sunday in cities and towns across the nation. “March in March” was a huge success in bringing about awareness to those Australian’s who are not so aware about the atrocities performed on an almost daily basis by those who have been given (or have just taken) too much power from their own people. Not surprisingly there was very little coverage given to the events by the mainstream media, however awareness was spread through the communication medium of social media: Facebook, Twitter etc. A few stories were posted on news websites and I heard a 20 second update about it on radio CB FM, but television news coverage was almost non-existant.

Those that attended had plenty to protest about; from human rights (asylum seeker) injustices, to gay rights issues; from the secret signing of the Trans-Pacific Partnership to the destruction of the Great Barrier Reef and the Forests of Tasmania, to cutbacks in education spending and massive increases in military spending. Does a single person in Australia even support the murder and genocide of innocent human beings going on in Afghanistan and the Middle East? Some ignorant people even protested the upcoming potential removal the Carbon Tax. The way Tony Abbott has been leading Australia Corporation thus far however, it wouldn’t surprise me if he back-flips on that election promise as well. It’s not like his approval ratings can go much lower anyway.

Several of the No Carbon Tax team attended the Sydney March to protest the numerous injustices being carried out by the Abbott Government. We’d just like to give a big shout out to Auscomms Communication Sydney from whom we got walkie talkie hire for the day. The two-way radios made it much easier to keep in contact with each other while we were organising crowds and bringing together all the like-minded anti-Government protesters.  Thanks Dave for suggesting getting the radios for the event, they really made things much easier especially when mobile phone network coverage was so unreliable probably due to the large number of people on the networks at the same time.

We encourage you all to keep fighting the good fight, not just to repeal the Carbon Tax but to fight for justice and ethics in Australian Politics, not just nationally but globally as well. Every living being on this planet deserves to be treated with respect. Can any global Government honestly say they they are doing what is best for their people instead of corporate interests? Everybody knows the Australian Government can’t. It doesn’t matter if it’s NLP or Labor the results are never in our favour. Australian’s need to take back control of their country and stop the sell off of national treasures and our values and ethics.

 

Spotlight on Local Business and A New Wave of Inflation

Recent data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics shows that Australia’s consumer prices index rose by 0.8 per cent in the three months of 2013 – more than twice as fast as expected. The major drivers of this was shown to be big increases in the price of fruit and vegetables and the cost of domestic and international travel. The news of increasing inflation is not good for families and business owners who were hoping for a further interest rate cut, with the news causing a shift at the RBA from debating the merits of another cut towards a more neutral stance on rates. Inflationary pressures on necessary items like food and fuel, will likely lead to an increase in prices across the board.

Economist for Commsec, Savanth Sebastian agrees. “If petrol prices were to lift over coming months this would feed through the economy in higher transportation costs and in turn price increases across an array of goods and services,” he said. Before this data release the probability of a further interest rate cut before the middle of the year was above 50 per cent, however this potential cut is now looking much less likely. Back in 2011, the Australian Government estimated that Australian families would be paying and extra $9.90 per week, or around $520 per year towards the Carbon Tax during the first year after its introduction. Like all Government Tax increase “estimates” this figure should however be taken with a grain of salt, and many families and local business owners believe that the tax has had a far larger impact on their weekly and yearly budgets. Labor’s own figures state that the carbon tax will increase by a factor of 6 between mid-2014 and mid-2019 – reaching $38 a tonne by 2019 and increasing to $350 a tonne over time. You can rest assured that the majority of this tax will be passed on to the end consumer, putting further pressures on the debt-ridden and already struggling, average Australian family.

While still only in its early days, this additional expense is already putting unwarranted financial pressures on local businesses as well. A plethora of small business owners have been in contact with us to discuss the effect it has had on their businesses thus far, and to show their support for the anti-tax movement. The No Carbon Tax team interviewed a few of them to hear about how exactly they have been affected and what they are doing to try and reduce the financial burden. A spokesperson for Pesky Possum Pest Control who wished to remain anonymous, said that the Brisbane-based business who specialize in possum removal had really felt the impact over the last few years of increasing prices. “Because our contractors drive to different houses and businesses all across Brisbane, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast to perform their pest control and possum rescue and removal work each day, a small increase in the price of petrol makes a massive difference to us at the end of the week” she said. “It’s not just petrol that has been affecting our pest removal teams either. We’ve noticed a jump in prices from bait for our possum and turkey traps, to sprays and equipment for our pest control, to tires for our trucks!”

Jay from Ads on Google another local Brisbane business owner said many of the clients of the search engine marketing agency where he works are feeling the pinch. “It’s seems like a lot of small businesses have had to cut back on their expenses recently due to their ever-increasing input costs. Generally when people cut back on expenditure, advertising and marketing is one of the first things to get culled.” He said. “One area where we’ve really notices a bit impact is clients who import high-end, quality fabrics and clothing from overseas for the local market. Two online clothing stores that I know of, The Freedom State, who specialize in bohemain-inspired ladies fashion and Fly Peacock who’s focus is on men’s designer t shirts, singlets and shorts have both had to reduce the frequency of their overseas flights in search of new designs and suppliers due to the increasing associated costs. The clothing industry isn’t an isolated case, anyone who travels overseas fairly regularly will have noticed the fairly large and consistent increases in the costs of tickets over the last few years.”

Tony Abbott claims the Tax will be repealed on July 1st, which will be a huge relief for Australian families and businesses. I’m not going to hold my breath though, the UN’s Agenda 21 and plans for a uniform Global Climate Tax isn’t going to be that easy to stop, and I’ve seen too many politicians break their promises to believe anything any puppet of the Australian 2 party system has to say until it has actually and definitively happened.

Exposing the IPCC’s Fraudulent Climate Science

In a video exposé of the numerous inconsistencies and falsified data contained within the IPCC’s most recent assessment of the state of climate science, James Corbett makes a number of excellent points in his efforts to enlighten the world to the fraud that is being perpetuated upon us. The 2013 assessment which has arrived 5 years after the 2007 report which warned us of dire circumstances and unprecedented anthropogenic climate events, is even more dramatic than the last. The new report states that the IPCC’s scientific consensus is that humans are the dominant cause of climate change with a certainty of 95% (up from 90% in 2007) and Global Warming is “unequivocal” even though the earth had actually been cooling for the majority of the time between report releases.

Most people will inevitably believe that the IPCC reports are based on legitimate science using the correct scientific method, but just how are these uncertainties calculated? Has anybody really looked into how the IPCC processes really work? James dissects the new report to show us a huge level of inconsistencies and bias within the pages of the report, from molding statistics to support the UN’s Global Warming agenda, to blatant lies that we can only expect that they never thought the public would ever pick up on. Take a look at this excellent breakdown of the assessment for yourself to learn more.

In the above 45 minute video James gives a full analysis of all the recent IPCC and supporting hype from the mainstream media, and examines and debunks the organizations processes and conclusions. If 45 minutes is too long for you to watch or you already distrust the IPCC and just want to know the gist of the arguement, take a look at this 2 minute video about how the IPCC came to it’s “scientific” conclusion that we as a species are the main cause of climate change with a 95% certainty.

More great videos like these on other important political and global issues can be found on James’ YouTube channel – The Corbertt Report.

Top climate scientists and experts were in uproar upon the release of the report; trashing many of the the methods, findings and claims it contained. Based on leaked drafts of the controversial assessment, critics had been ridiculing and debunking the IPCC’s climate claims since the several weeks prior to the official release. After the official report release in Stockholm, the deluge of criticism accelerated, with more than a few top scientists calling for the UN’s IPCC to be disbanded entirely.

Climate scientists aren’t the only one who are losing confidence in the IPCC and the UN’s authority on Global Warming/Climate Change. A recent online survey taken by an marketing agency BrisDigital based in Brisbane, showed that the majority of the Australian public have little confidence in the IPCC’s findings and believe that more analysis should have been done before implementing such “fixes” as the Carbon Tax. A spokesperson for the digital marketing agency did however comment on their results stating that their may have been a bias within their data due to only people who are educated on the topic or have an interest in it choosing to take their survey. “There may be a large proportion of the population who remain uneducated and uninformed on the topic of the IPCC and Climate Change in general, and their views may not be fully reflected in our findings” he said.  The full spectrum of results can be viewed on the BrisDigital agency website.

Despite this, and amid a plethora of skepticism and protest the UN and it’s IPCC still maintain their stance on the impending anthropogenic doom the earth is facing. Just how much longer can they keep their heads in the sand?

Hockey Urges For Repeal As Inflation Rises

The plan to repeal the carbon tax by the federal government has so far been a sticky process with the first legislative package rejected by the senate. Because the Labor party and the Greens are still against the bills, there is little to no chance of the federal government getting the bill passed until the seats of the senate change hands on the 1st of July.

In a move to further slow proceedings, the opposition and Greens chose to debate each piece of the legislative package as separate entities. This has angered the treasurer Joe Hockey, who has blamed the former Labor government’s carbon tax for the recent rise in the inflation rate. The consumer price index rose 0.8 per cent in the December quarter pushing the inflation rate to 2.7 per cent from 2.2 per cent in the previous period. This is the highest rate of inflation in two years.

“The inflation rate continues to be impacted by Labor’s carbon tax,” said Mr Hockey on Wednesday. He went on to say that “Labor senators should stop standing in the way of cost-of-living relief for Australian families and vote to repeal the carbon tax when parliament resumes.”

The repeal of the tax cannot come soon enough for some local business owners. Rod Bishop from Snowcentral in Brisbane’s North said he may no longer be able to afford to tune snowboards in his business’ state of the art Wintersteiger Tunejet machine due to rising energy costs believed to be associated with the tax.

And it appears he is not alone. A spokesperson from Amarantos Cakes Melbourne recently commented at a community meeting in Melbourne’s East on the potential negative influence the tax is having on consumer spending. “People are more conscious with their money” she said. Implying that their money is not going as far as it once did taking into account rising living costs.

The federal government has put forward numbers stating that the repeal of the tax would save Australian families and businesses an average of $550 next financial year. However, some of the Labor senators believe that it will cost the Australian taxpayer more to shut down the $10 Billion Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC).

Michel Mann’s Nobel Hockey Stick

Mark Stein has been having some sport with Dr Michael Mann’s attempt to pass himself off as a “Nobel prize recipient“, notwithstanding that the Nobel committee says he isn’t. But Mark Steyn may not be aware of the new Nobel ring modelling that Michel Mann has developed over at the Penn and is about to be published in Nature. Based on carefully picked northern Norwegian tree ring chronologies and some extremely complex and secret mathematical computer models way beyond your puny mind’s comprehension, it turns out that Michael Mann indeed did receive the Nobel Prize in 2000. As the graph below clearly shows, the certainty is 0.95, which to us scientists in the know, means there is only 0.05 chance that it did not happen and thus we call it a highly probably event.  The Nobel committee which ignores this science and claims Michael Mann did not receive a Nobel Prize are clearly nothing but Nobel Deniers.

The Political History of GW Madness

From Dallingpole’s Post Nicholas Stern – the most dangerous man you’ve never heard of 

Commented AlecM makes a nice summary of the political history of global warming madness.

AlecM

The organisation chart of ‘environmentalism’ is complex.  The core are long term entryists like Hansen, who has called for a Chinese Communist style government in the USA, and the late Schneider. The latter had been part of the group which had got funding from predicting a new ice age.

In 1975, the ‘Endangered Atmosphere Conference’ was organised by Club of Rome Erlich and Eugenicist Margaret Meade and they decided to use CO2 as the justification for population reduction.

A parallel scare was the ozone hole, now known to be a natural phenomenon. Devoutly religious Houghton co-founder of the IPCC,  published his book on Atmospheric Physics in 1986: it has two errors which apparently led to the false assumptions in the climate models.

In 1992, the UN adopted Agenda 21, the sustainability model for the 21st Century but really a blueprint to use the CO2-threat to impose Marxist totalitarianism on the West. Associated with the eugenicists are Porrit and Prince Charles. The former apparently set out to indoctrinate Oxford students, e.g. Davey.

With the collapse of the USSR, the Marxists set out to infiltrate WWF, Greenpeace, FoE, Christian Aid, Oxfam etc.  In 1993, Will Happer, Director of Research for the US DoE resigned because he was told by Gore to falsify the IR science.

In 1997, the proof that CO2 followed the warming at the end of ice ages led to the fake Mann Hockey-stick and in 2001, the third IPCC assessment report had this as the highlight. It was organised at a meeting with CRU people in  Tanzania in 1999.

In 2004, NASA switched the partially correct aerosol optical physics of Twomey with an incorrect claim that small cloud droplets reflect more sunlight because of higher surface area. This fake physics allowed the fourth IPCC assessment report to claim AGW was hidden by polluted cloud cooling.

At about this time the renewed SWP organised with Trotskites at the Guardian and the emerging 10.10 movement the Red-Green Alliance.  It’s international and links with environmental groups.

Last year, Hansen claimed AGW is hidden by exactly the opposite aerosol cooling, hence the atmosphere has ceased to warm. He and Trenberth apparently introduced the 0.9 W/m^2 ‘missing heat’, supposedly hiding in the ocean deeps: there is no such physics and it seems to be the fraud to underpin the fifth IPCC assessment report.

Al Gore and David Blood, ex CEO of GS, set up their London based carbon trading company. Shell set out to get 2/3 rds of its revenue from carbon trading. Grantham set up the LSE propaganda unit, also work at Imperial on climate modelling. Deutsche bank influenced Merkel and Blair.  Blair reportedly gets £5 million a year from J. P. Morgan.

Stern persuaded Lehman Brothers to do carbon trading: it broke the bank and may have triggered the World financial meltdown. Schroeder did a deal with Putin to get a monopoly on Gazprom gas into North Germany.

Obama has to date spent nearly £65 billion on climate research to ‘prove’ CO2-AGW. There is absolutely no proof it exists, fundamental IR physics shows it cannot exist and the prediction of positive feedback is a fraud in the models.

The Club of Rome has been lobbying to get ‘deniers’ on trial at a UN Court in the Hague for obstructing the ‘science’. Judge Finklestein in Australia recommended that bloggers in Australia with 41 hits or more per day should be fined and/or jailed if they put out science not approved by the State.

Marxists started the fraud but then became controlled by the emissions’ traders.  Politicians joined in for the extra taxes. Behind them the Eugenicists plan to kill billions in the interests of ‘sustainability’. The movement is similar to Nazism in the 1930s with the Eugenicists eager to get their first Law, equivalent perhaps to the 1934 Law in Germany allowing the State to kill ‘defectives’ at birth.

James Lovelock, appalled at scientific fraud he saw in ozone research he started and revealed in the Climategate e-mails has has apologised for his apocalyptic predictions. Peter Lilley, one of a handful of scientifically-trained MPs, recently wrote a coruscating criticism of Stern’s 2006 Report which was highly influential on UK Government and Lehman Brothers.

ABC24: Business wants even higher Carbon tax !?

This is my today’s complaint to ABC24:

The ABC24 Monday night The Business bulletin on the 16th July 2012 at 8:35 pm, had a report on the Carbon Tax, which mis-represented the facts presented.

During its interview of the CEO of Sustainable Business Australia, the ABC Journalist reported a finding, that left even this hardened listener of ABS bias quite gob smacked, namely that business can’t get enough of this carbon tax:

Journalist: “And contrary to popular understanding that business believes that the carbon tax at $23 a ton of Carbon is too high, Andrew Peterson says many with rising energy costs are coming to the view that it is too low.

An authority figure saying that businesses, subject to the world’s highest carbon tax by multiples, want even more carbon tax on them is astonishing and proves that maybe Gillard was right all along.

But wait, Andrew Peterson’s sound byte actually states nothing of the kind:   “I think that business once they become comfortable with the primary implications for their business will argue that if they’re going to see investment in energy, more efficient energy activity, they’ll actually want to see the price increased.

So what is merely a preposterous prediction from a self-interested party that business will argue for more tax in the future, the ABC paints even a rosier picture by misreporting the person as having said that it is happening already – and in ‘many’ businesses.

I believe the ABC24 should either present the evidence or make a correction to this report and clarify that the SBA CEO in fact made no such claim and that the ABC has no evidence of such a claim or such fact that business is coming to any view of wanting a higher carbon tax.

There goes the ABC, having trouble distinguishing prediction from fact, in relation to climate and CO2.
