Warming shysters exposed – $5.7 billion too late

Andrew Bolt Blog
26 April 2011

Victoria’s former Labor Government claimed it had to build a $5.7 billion desalination plant – rather than a $1.4 billion dam that would have given it three times more water – because global warming was drying up the rains:

Unfortunately, we cannot rely on this kind of rainfall like we used to…


THE companies building Victoria’s multibillion-dollar desalination plant are seeking compensation from taxpayers because of the impact of this year’s floods on construction.

Carbon Tax – the amazing, modern fiscal miracle!

Australian Conservative
5 April 2011

We are told that the carbon tax will be “revenue neutral”.

Big deal. So was the budget in Soviet Russia – they took 100 per cent of your income and spent it all.

But carbon tax collectors look like spending far more than their income.

Those magicians in Canberra are going to reimburse all “low income” people for the effect of their carbon tax on the cost for electricity and food.

And also reduce the petrol excise. And exempt export industries.

And pay our share of the UN Cancun Climate giveaway of $100 billion per year.

And give subsidies and tax breaks to Green Energy.

And purchase carbon credits.

And provide $800 million per year to the Climate Research Industry.

Revealed: scandal of carbon credit firm

Sydney Morning Herald
8 April 2011

A SYDNEY carbon credits company thought to have been running some of the world’s biggest offsets deals appears to be a fake, shifting paper certificates instead of saving forests and cutting greenhouse emissions.

Shift2neutral says it has made high-profile events such as the Australian PGA golf championship and the Sydney Turf Club’s world-first ”green race day” carbon neutral.

But deals to generate more than $1 billion worth of carbon credits by saving jungles from logging in the Philippines, the Congo and across south-east Asia do not seem to exist.

The global network of investors and carbon offset certifiers supposed to be brokering deals with foreign presidents and the World Bank can be traced to a modest office in a shopping village in Westleigh, staffed by shift2neutral’s founder, Brett Goldsworthy.

Mr Goldsworthy insists every certificate for carbon offsets he issues has value and represents a real reduction in greenhouse emissions somewhere in the world. That is what he has told puzzled investors and companies who have unwittingly sought to reduce their carbon footprint.

But when pressed for examples of any specific project that has cut emissions to generate the carbon credits the company offers for sale, he was unable to provide even one.
