$2000 global warming tax - per year - per family
For some reason, the public doesn't seem to like this
By geologist Bob Carter
"The government's chosen climate communicators have failed to confront the real climate change issue (which is natural climate hazard). And as opinion polls clearly show, they have failed to convince the public that a global warming crisis exists, or that a carbon dioxide tax will have any beneficial influence on future climate."
"Climate Change Minister Greg Combet announced the government's solution on June 16. It is to spend $12 million on ''informing'' the electorate about the need for a carbon dioxide tax. (In this case, "informing" is another word for propaganda.)
Professor Carter then goes on to demolish the so-called "consensus" on global
"So the cost-benefit equation is this," says Carter. ''Your family pays more than $2000 a year in extra tax in return for a possible cooling of the globe by two one-thousandths of a degree.''
"In the light of these facts, little wonder the government's four horsemen of the climate apocalypse have been unable to convince the public of the desirability of carbon dioxide taxation.
"In the meantime, watch out for those ads that Minister Combet is going to run towards this end. After all, you're paying for them."
