Carbon Tax crap again- spins on spins – short rant

On the toob this evening.

The power generators or energy producers down here want compensation for owning and operating a plant because they are going to be slugged too much for the carbon pollution.

?

Really? They had notice to fix things years ago, but oh no, share owners come first. Arses! Kitchen too hot? If its messy, clean it up. Idiots. Always taking us for suckers.

The government says too, the “lower class or socio-economic” tax payers / consumers will be compensated for paying extra to the energy producers!

What the hell? Circular arguments? Take, give- give take etc etc and nothing said about fixing the problems.

Tell me where the TAX on CARBON production will be going. Really! Where?

The airlines will lose money too. Oh Boo Hoo. With the internet- who needs to travel?

Do I really need that rarer and rarer food type FISH from overseas? Or why is tuna fished in Oz AIRLIFTED to SE Asia and Japan? Canned and sent back as well!

Just fix the smokestacks Jack Julia and Tony. Loonies!

Fix the stacks! Forget the tax!

    Tone,

    The carbon tax is meant to be given to people with land to encourage them to grow trees which suck the nasty CO2 from the air, therefore off setting the nasty energy users contribution of life giving CO2 to the atmosphere.

    What happens when the planted trees become mature (at that point the co2 produced by the rotting and dying trees etc equals the absorbtion from the air) or they get chopped down for firewood is not clear.

    Of course when the “carbon credits” which are presumably generated from the carbon tax, get traded internationally, the UN proposes to be the “broker”, therefore taxing every individual in the whole wide world, and making so much money that they won’t need to rely on the nasty U S of A and other lesser countries to finance them. That way they can do what they “think best” for the world.

    Isn’t it a wonderful scheme? Well at least they are not taxing the air used by windsurfers yet.

    Of course thats the official plan, what is your Julia is going to do with the money? Well what ever it is we can be sure it will be very Australian:)

    Cheers

      Roger, thanks for reading my stuff.
      I have not seen that the scheme (UN) mentioned or summarized clearly in the media over here.
      Not sure it is wonderful, sounds optimistic, but there is worse pollution too.
      Have The GWS video on at the mo.
      I am just worried that the scheme will not be clearly explained, and is going to be “shanghaied” by Big Money- Look at Nigerian Oil.

      They(?!) better not tax my wind over here at Sandy Point either!

      Your blog is large, looks like a very good read over the next few days!

      Cheers
      T
