Weekly Stuff I Missed

Satellite Global Temperature.
What the global temperature shows – not much – it is remarkably stable and self-regulating and it is not dangerously warming despite the rapidly rising, but trivial Carbon dioxide levels.

Australia’s “Brave New World”

Disgraceful: 4,500 Aussies Silenced By The Gillard-Brown Regime

” …Upon its establishment last month, the Joint Select Committee called for submissions from Australians on the 1000+ page plan to impose a tax on carbon dioxide. Despite giving Australians only one week to wade through the legislation, the Committee Website specifically stated that it “encourages submissions to its inquiry from a wide range of individuals and organisations”

An unprecedented 4500 Australians took the time to write to submit detailed submissions to the committee. All of these were rejected, with only 70 (mainly pro-tax) submissions published. At no time in the history of the Australian Parliament has a Committee flatly rejected to even consider the opinions of the Australian people…. “

” …The effrontery of the independents continues today. Oakeshott said recently he continued to believe that he made the right decision handing power to a Gillard government. His electorate seems to have a different view.

According to one poll, less than 15 per cent of Lyne voters support Oakeshott after a year of the new paradigm.

More important than uncovering the clamouring self-interest of a few independents, the last election has allowed the electorate to move from a state of somnolence to one of deep circumspection about the Greens…. “

” …In short, we have learned about Brown’s clever tactics as Greens leader using an environmental cloak to hide a much broader, more radical agenda to change the way we live and work to reflect the party’s anti-commerce, anti-growth beliefs. We should be eternally grateful the Greens have educated us so well these past 12 months. More voters now understand that former Greenpeace founder Patrick Moore was right when he said that when the Cold War was over and the Berlin Wall fell, the leftists moved into the environmental movement, bringing with them their neo-Marxist, far-left agendas: agendas that have more to do with opposing capitalism and globalisation than with science or ecology.

Power-sharing here to stay? Tell Oakeshott he’s dreaming.”
