Aussie Carbon Tax Threatened At Durban

Poor Greg Combet.

Poor Greg, politics is so fickle.

He did such a good job getting the Carbon Tax through. He must have wanted to be at the ALP Conference this weekend to bask in his glory.

Everybody else seems to be very happy that he wasn’t!

“Climate” has hardly rated a mention!

First the UN IPCC tones down the alarm.

Now the Financial Times reports the CDM, the UN’s carbon offset market, seems as doomed as the proverbial Dodo.

So Greg’s Carbon Tax will morph into a carbon trading scheme in which only NZ, California, Europe and Shanghai are partipating and Australia will achieve its carbon reductions by buying offsets in an offset market that has simply disappeared or degenerated into high farce!

Nobody in the ALP wants to know because the Carbon Tax was a triumph for the Greens and the ALP vote is haemorrhaging to the Greens as a result.

Half the Liberal Party who got sucked in by the fraud of “Climate” and persisted with their own “Direct Action Plan”, not-quite-so-big, price-on-carbon also want it to just go away and leave them alone.

I loved the irony of this little pic on the PM website of a very lonely Greg Combet ( http://www.abc.net.au/pm/content/2011/s3382514.htm ) .

  1. Hi Grant,
    Love the picture, I had to have a laugh. 😆
    Labor will never admit they were wrong, we will see this stupid Carbon Tax come into OZ, and the unemployed will rise, places are closing now without the carbon tax, just imagine how much worse it is going to get.
