Julia Gillard repeals Carbon Tax
Australia: April 1, 2012
Australian Prime Minister, Julia Gillard has announced she will be repealing Australia’s $23 per tonne Carbon Tax, which was due to be implemented on 1 July 2012.
She said it was embarrassing trying to defend her climate change advisors whose predictions kept failing. “It’s one thing when experts make predictions and they are slightly wrong,” she said “but when the complete opposite happens, then there is something drastically wrong. It’s clear to me now that the sun drives climate change. The Carbon Tax will therefore not be implemented on 1 July.”
She was referring to the numerous predictions made of permanent drought in Australia due to man made global warming. Australia has since experienced record breaking flooding. Also 2011 was Australia’s coldest year in a decade, defying an established trend to higher temperatures.
“All funds to man-made climate change research will be stopped with immediate effect” she said “instead, the millions of dollars will be put into cancer research. With this massive increase in funding to cancer research, we expect to find a cure for cancer within the next 5 years.”
