DAVID Alexander of the Southern Highland News brings to our attention the council carbon tax bill ($300,000) about to be imposed upon the ratepayers of the Wingecarribee Council (SHN Nov 9).
Newspapers continue to fill our minds of the imminent dangerous climate change. It’s time to take stock of some sobering facts from the IPCC which form the genesis of the carbon tax in Australia which I am sure the minister of climate change does not want you to know:
* The IPCC Summary for Policy Makers was released some three months before the IPCC’s 1,600-page scientific report which was modified to ensure what politicians determined would not be in conflict with the scientific report. First the politics then the science:
* 95 per cent of the greenhouse effect comes from water vapour.
* 97pc of CO2 emissions are natural coming from the land and sea.
When you next pay your council rates with its carbon tax component or your power bill, do yourself a favour, Google IPCC fraud, review the web pages and remind yourself that your labours and substance are now are about maintaining a myth (anthropogenic climate change) and surrendering the right to choose the way you live.
