Rudd’s Trip To Copenhagen A Waste Of Time

For ages Kevin Rudd and Penny Wong have been trying to pull the wool over the Australian public. First it was under the guise of ‘global warming’ and when it was shown that that was a fallacy thy changed tact and waved the new, and now popular, ‘climate change‘ banner.

All their arguments were delivered in the hope that Australians would get behind their CPRS (Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme) just so they would be able to get it through parliament in time for Copenhagen. Why would they want to push it through, knowing the pressure it would put on our economy, especially when there was no guarantee that any of the other were going to sign it.

Check out this quote from the Science & Public Policy Institute.

Here we are today debating the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme legislation, which is one of the biggest pieces of legislation ever to come before the parliament, and the Rudd government wants to ram it through the Senate. The CPRS is a multibillion dollar tax that will affect every single Australian. Just a few hours ago the Rudd government put forward changes to its flawed Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme, and now it wants the Senate to agree to them without proper scrutiny and debate. This is irresponsible and reckless behaviour and, to me, it is an attack on what a democracy is all about. The Senate should not be voting on the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme until at least after Copenhagen and until after we know what the rest of the world is going to commit to.

Thankfully Tony Abbott, the new Liberal leader was able to thwart Rudd and his cronies. It will be interesting to see, now that Copenhagen seems to be falling into disarray, what Rudd will come up with when he arrives back in Australia. I’m sure he will somehow try to put the blame on the Liberal party.

    So, just verifying, it’s not that you’re against climate change, just that you wanted to wait to see what the rest of the world was going to do first?

    Exactly, why subject Australia to constraints and unnecessary hardship if the rest of the world wasn’t going to. All our cost would go up and our export market would also be less competitive.

    Also the boofhead was wanting us to sign in without even reading it to see what it was ll about. Who would do that?

    Its not just Rudd, its Key over here in NZ, Obama in the US, and all of them. Have a read of my latest post in the Green Planet. Its a bloody con, Pete. The developing nations were taking the West for a ride> Climate Change is real enough, but countries like China and India have to stop poisoning the planet first. They want to levy a little country like NZ because they claim our dairy cattle fart too much and cause greenhouse gases! Get real I say!

      Yeah it’s all BS Peter. Do you know our stupid government wanted to put a levy on the farmers because of the cows farting. Bloody morons.
      The whole thing is just a huge tax grab that won’t help the environment one iota.
