Aussie’s Begin To See The Great Goreacle’s Carbon Trading Ponzi Scheme For What It Is

LC EFA alerts us to this bit of good news. It would appear that even some of the die-hard EnviroLoons are beginning to realize that they’ve been had like Three Card Monty suckers. (We’re going to hold off on the “We TOLD morons that it was a scam!”… At least until the end of the post.)

THE millions of well-intentioned Australians turning off light bulbs, installing insulation in their ceilings and solar panels on their roofs, cycling to work or buying low-emission cars are wasting time and money.

Money and time that could be used for solving REAL problems like diseases, food shortages and killing Islamic fascists in new and horrendously painful ways.

Commentators from both sides of the climate debate have criticised the emissions trading scheme proposed by the federal Government as being ineffectual.

Remember when it used to be “Glow Bull Worming” and how “the debate is over“? Funny how the name has changed, now that it’s been proven that the naturally-occurring warming trend (That’s been going on for, let’s see, since that 1.5-2 MILE THICK SHEET OF ICE covered most of North America, only a scant 15,000 years ago.) has halted and we’re, quite possibly, on the verge of slipping into a New & Improved Ice Age™.

Under the scheme, the more individuals save on their emissions the more corporate polluters such as coal stations and aluminium smelters are allowed to emit.

Which is EXACTLY how a Ponzi scheme is supposed to work. It doesn’t solve a damned thing— It just allows someone (Guess who?) to collect all of the trillions of dollars of cash (via “carbon credits“) and redistribute it to those whom they deem worthy of it… AFTER taking a nice, hefty cut for themselves.

The left-leaning Australia Institute…

Talk about an understatement…

…and pro free-market think tanks the Institute of Public Affairs and the Centre for Independent Studies all condemned the ETS this week.

We feel a rousing round of “Kumbaya, M’Lord!” coming on!

Australia Institute head Richard Denniss said an ETS had almost no friends, either within industry or among economists and green groups.

“Individual efforts to reduce energy use will have absolutely no effect on the level of Australia’s emissions,” he said. “The least understood feature of the ETS is that the more effort households put into reducing their energy use, the more spare permits they are freeing up for the big polluters. It is a zero-sum game.”

He’s absolutely correct, as far as emissions are concerned. We’ll take issue (albeit a small one) with his “zero-sum game” conclusion, when it comes to the monetary and man-hour losses. Let us explain further: HUGE sums of money will pass through the hands of Algore & His Communist Climate Czars™ and trillions of dollars in time, effort and resources will be wasted on History’s Greatest Scam— all of which could have been spent making life better for billions of people around the globe, be it through better medicines, clean water technology, improved farming techniques & GM seeds, power plant construction (nukes, coal & gas), mosquito control, etc., ad nauseum, et al. So, all things being equal, we’ll have to go with a “less-than-zero-sum game” as the definition for the results of the Carbon Credit Scam ETS.

A spokeswoman for Climate Change Minister

What happened to “Glow Bull Worming Warlord”? Ooooooooh, that’s right! With “climate change”, no matter which direction the temps go, they’re proven right. They really have learned their dialectical method*. (*Note: Look it up, Drooling Ungluates.)

…Penny Wong said every Australian should help reduce carbon pollution and contribute to meeting Australia’s emissions reduction target.

“Improving energy efficiency in our homes will position Australia to set even more ambitious carbon pollution reduction targets in the future,” she said.

Let us translate that for those of you out there who might not be fluent in Idiotese:
“Let’s waste TRILLIONS of dollars in time, effort, resources and money NOW and we’ll figure out ways to waste EVEN MORE in the future!”

Fortunately, there are more and more people out there who are figuring out what the EUnuchs are already learning from their own little Marxist Money Laundering Scheme.

But Mr Denniss dismissed these claims: “If Minister Wong is genuinely proud of her system, she should honestly and simply explain to the public that for the next 12 years at least, nothing they do to reduce their emissions will have any impact.”

And that, friends, is EXACTLY why Algore and His Socialist Sycophants will never hold an “honest & open debate’— Three Card Monty dealers don’t like to have their methodology exposed for the rubes on street corner to see. Things tend to turn very, VERY ugly when their scam is pointed out to a crowd that has just been fleeced of their hard-earned cash.

Chartered accountant and member of the lobby group Sandbag Climate Campaign, Jeremy Burke, said people would feel betrayed by an ETS.

“Nothing an individual does will make any difference,” he said. “Individual actions like replacing globes, installing insulation and solar water heaters and collective actions like Earth Hour will be to no avail.”

But, but, but… Ashton Kutcher and his fellow Pillars of Intelligentsia told us “Yes, We Can!”. (Note: Duct Tape Alert!)

Reserve Bank board member and economist Warwick McKibben said the problems with an ETS were well known and the rest of the world was already moving away from such schemes.

Well, maybe those who have already tried it and found out what an incredible scam it is, Mr. McKibben. Sadly, the Marxist Lamestream Midiots™ here in America have managed to sweep that bit of information under the proverbial rug in an attempt to allow Teh One™! and his Biggest Little Whorehouse on the Potomac™ to impose exactly the same scam on our country.

John Humphreys, research fellow at the CIS, said that by cancelling the House of Representatives inquiry this week the Government was shutting down debate. “It’s a shame; it is an important debate,” he said.

Now where have we seen this tactic before, hmmmmm?

“Under the ETS as it is designed if you do reforms in your own home it allows the electricity companies to sell those permits to another carbon emitter.”

If it wasn’t under the auspices of a government program, that would land you in jail.

Tracey Tipping, 32, who sells environmentally-friendly products online

The Oxymoronical Irony Meter™ just pegged itself so hard that we’re going to have to take it down to the Imperial Fabrication Shop™ and have it worked on.

…has done everything possible to reduce her emissions. …

Except, of course, discontinuing her exhalation of CO2 and stopping her poisoning the planet’s atmosphere…

… She and her husband have installed energy-efficient light bulbs in their home and bought carbon offsets for their car.

P.T. Barnum would have LOVED these two…

The couple recently spent almost $20,000 after rebates on their solar panels and hot water system, reducing their already lean electrical consumption by 80 per cent.

He really, REALLY would have loved these two…

“We spent all this money and it reduced Australia’s emissions,…

No, it didn’t.

…but once an ETS comes in, other people like us won’t be able to make a difference as other sectors of the economy would just increase their emissions by the same amount as individuals reduce theirs. …

Don’t ya’ just LOVE the smell of ClueJava® in the morning?

… It doesn’t make sense,” she said.

BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Welcome to Environmental Socialism 101, Mizz Tipping!

Three Card Marxist Monty™: It’s what’s in coming for your wallet!

Class dismissed.

Oh, we almost forgot… “We told you so!”

F.E.T.E.

    Yes, just like the “Heads I win, Tails you lose,” coin-flip that children con each other with.

    I have actually heard some of these environmental terrorists claim that plants and forests are polluters. I am still not sure how their theories went as I was blissfully thinking about murdering them instead of listening. However, I did perk up and question them when my mind clicked on their claiming plants were bad. Yes, indeed, for some reason, plants were the enemy. I then went back to thinking of gutting them in a public forum somewhere, ignoring whatever else they were lecturing us about.

    it also begs the question of WHERE THEY THINK THE “CENTER” IS!!

    as i live in the SF Bay Area, one can imagine the “center” is like Chomsky or clowns like him, here.

    You are soooo right, Sir Fresh Sign. Maybe it’s in the water….wait, we got no friggin’ water. Even though it’s rainin’ like a cow pissin’ on a flat rock right now. Or perhaps the veggies? Keep growing yer own, brother…I need to learn more about box grown veggies……quite fond of them, I am. I won’t live in that pesthole any more. Escaped over the moat and fled inland.

    Like on another site I frequent (not necessarily political) where you are asked how you lean politically. Not once has anyone calling themselves “moderate” been anything but a liberal too squishy to admit it. :em38:

    yeah RR, i have a friend who is a doctor who was appalled that i turned out to be a “rightie” and he said he was a “libertarian”… but of course he has never espoused anything remotely libertarian except for his adoration of smoking good dope.. and last year he said “Obama is our only Hope” Help Us Ben Kenobi You’re Our Only Hope.

    Libertarian my ass. As you say, just a squishy way of Not telling people that you are aligned with Chomsky.

    Excellent, Sir Fresh Sign. You can sell them to the lefties after they give all our water to the delta smelt. And do me a favor, gouge the shit out of them. I’ve always been fascinated with that sort of thing, just yesterday turning over my cubic yard of compost I keep here next to the cord of firewood. I don’t spray, unless absolutely necessary, ladybugs eat aphids just fine, etc. Although we get dragonflies I mistook for hummingbirds. Big suckers. I plan on growing a lot of veggies next spring, as best I can anyway. I may end up eating a lot of veggie soup. Got an elberta peach and a gravenstein apple tree here, the later young yet. Got a freezer and an extra fridge in the garage for storage. Let it be the capitalist within you, a veggie/citris stand. Ride shotgun on an orange…..Not a bad idea…. :em02:
    I will write you a letter about it.

    And just who ends up with this government largesse, hm????

    The Aussies have to start asking just WHO is pocketing the money, and WHO is facilitating this shit. Only one side declared the debate shut. The other side has an obligation to keep demanding it be open.

    And we should start demanding debate here, too, by any means necessary. I suggest starting a compost pile right on The Goron’s driveway. 😀

    I jus’ likes da way Marinia handles those uncomfortable social situations–imaginary flaying, gutting, disembowelment of the suicidal virally stupid variant of the human species that are the socialist left. I’m more the virtual triple tap and move on type, but either way, I’d call it visualizing Justice, then whirled peas. That’s my “Happy Place”!

    BC, dude, come on….

    meanwhile,

    NASA or NOAA or some dumbass dickweed gubmint drooler reported this week that there has been a slight error in recent calculations regrading the size of the Antarctic ice shelf. It seems that due to “sensor drift” a slightly larger than acceptable difference resulted in recent findings. To wit, A piece of ice the size of CALIFORNIA was missed when Teh satellite flew past. Sensor drift, is that like a “go funny” eye?

    I can only hope that when this whole man-made global warming scam comes crashing down that the scammers can be prosecuted for the fraud they’re perpetrating.

    Failing that, if we really are heading for a new ice age maybe I can get some pleasure from watching the glacier push Algore’s mansion into the Gulf of Mexico.
