Green scam

Anybody reading this who thinks the Greens haven't already decided their position on the anti-industrial Emissions Tax Scam? Who doesn't think the 'consultation' was always a sham -- a ruse by which they can sign up to a scheme they opposed without looking like they've backed down?

Anyone? Then I have a toll road I can sell you.

UPDATE: And here they go, emerging from this morning's caucus to pretend they considered your view and announce ... they're supporting Labour's Emissions Taxing Scam. Quel surprise.

    I feel another video coming on.....

  2. I remember reading that old women with the annoying voice from the NZ Green party saying something about wanting to get New Zealanders opinions on the ETS, and I though to myself.. We can't be trusted to discipline our children, we can't be trusted to eat the right food, we can't be trusted with nuclear power, we can't be trusted with bloody plastic bags, but they want OUR opinion on POLICY?

    Something is very inconsistent here.

  3. A prediction: whatever the details of this ratbastard scheme, National--if elected--will only fiddle with minor details.
    We're going to be screwed over yet again and taxed to within an inch of our lives, because any concessions and exemptions will probably only apply to the non-productive bludgers.

  4. STill, at let I got a few things off my chest via their email. No actual response yet (other than the automated one).

  5. The ETS is silly and should be scrapped.

  6. “Fear feeds ignorance” said James Lovelock in the Ages of Gaia,*and a great niche was opened for fear when science became incomprehensible to those who were not its practitioners”

    As as we observe the following following extract from his book,we see hee is the only proponent of AGW to make a correct prediction.

    "The attachment of a number to anything or anyone implies a significance that was missing from its physical description .A telephone number is valuable tool in comparison the observation that atmospheric abundance of perfluoromethyl cyclohexane is 5.6x10-15 ,or that whilst you have read this line of text a hundred thousand of the atoms in your body will have disintegrated.whilst interesting confer neither benefit or significance to your health.

    But once numbers are attached to say an environmental property the means will soon be made to justify their recording,and before long a data bank of information about the distribution of substance x or radioactive isotope y will exist.It is a small step to compare the different databanks ,and in the nature of statistical distributions there will be a correlation of the distribution of substance x and disease Z

    It is no exaggeration to observe that once some curious investigator pries open such a niche,it will be filled by the opportunistic growth of hungry professionals and their predators.A new subset of society will be occupied in the monitoring of substance x and disease Z as will as the makers of the instrumentation. Then there will be the lawyers who make the legislation for the beaurecrats to administer and so on.”


  7. "...and thus the New Royalty is established. Many ones are laid to slave, soon serve the birthright adopted upon them."
