HOW ENRON ORIGINATED THE EMISSIONS TRADING SCAM

From The New Zealand Climate Science Coalition

HOW ENRON ORIGINATED THE EMISSIONS TRADING SCAM “Horner’s argument is that we are getting a one-sided discussion of climate change because most media outlets, politicians, activists and a substantial section of big business have – in a variety of ways – got an interest in keeping it that way. He tells me: ‘This affirms a worldview of many people: “Man is wretched, an agent of doom”; “There’s just about enough of [the moral people] and way too many of everyone else”; “Markets are horrible and the state needs to be much bigger”; “Development is terrible”. All of those movements find refuge in the global warming industry.’  – Review of Christopher Horner’s book “Red Hot Lies”.  LINK

The tide is finally turning against global warming cultists

From BrookesNews, November 10, 2008

By Viv Forbe

All over the western world, the penny is dropping. People are coming to realise that “global warming” is a phony crisis. More slowly they are learning that the misguided policies being promoted to change future climate will create real crises in energy and food supplies and costs. Already food prices have soared, and energy projects have been stopped or delayed.

Asia, Russia and the Middle East look on in disbelief as we commit economic suicide. If this man-made crisis coincides with natural global cooling (which will cause a sudden drop in food production) the world will become a cold, selfish, hungry and unpleasant place.  Not a nice legacy for our children.

The US, Germany and even UK are waking up to the danger as electoral anger on food and energy prices grows. Only the somnambulists in the South Pacific, Australia and New Zealand, are still insisting on nailing our people onto the Emissions Trading Cross. We have about 2 years to stop this hysteria from consuming our futures. But we must kill it stone dead. The great danger is that Emissions Trading will be introduced, but so slowly that almost no one will notice its introduction.

Compensation, exceptions and low rates of carbon tax will be combined with lots of make-believe green jobs. The costs will be there, prosperity will decline, but a whole cadre of people will be receiving subsidy bribes, or have jobs living on this scam. They will become a mercenary army of vested interests determined to maintain their artificial jobs and their legislated assets.  Once it is in, we will never get it out.

We will get little help from politicians and the media, until they see the turn in the tide of public opinion. They are followers not leaders. We have to reach past the media and the politicians using our own resources. The internet and word of mouth are our media. But we need lots of people relaying the messages everywhere — media, politicians and electors.

I am amazed every time a newsletter or media release like this goes out to our growing mail list. Within 30 minutes I hear it is on web sites in Canada, US, Britain, Australia, New Zealand and Europe. And several people have already reported that they have each sent it to several hundred more. Then we start getting messages or congratulations from people we have never heard of. Please keep this ball rolling.

Preaching to the Converted

People often ask about the futility of “preaching to the converted”. That is not what we are doing — we are “arming the disciples”.  We will get little assistance from traditional media, so we have to create our own circles of correspondents. We now have a worldwide network of active organizations and web sites. And our mail lists are expanding fast.

Time to Erase the Emissions Trading Nightmare

By Viv Forbes

From Canada Free Press, October 11, 2008

The Carbon Sense Coalition today called on the Premier of Queensland and all elected members to bring pressure to bear on the Federal Government to immediately abandon plans for Emissions Trading.

The Chairman of “Carbon Sense”, Mr Viv Forbes, said that at a time of world economic crisis, the last thing productive Queensland industries need is the threat of this destructive policy hanging over them.

“Emissions Trading and its carbon taxes must harm Australian industry, and Queensland will suffer most.

We are assured there are real environmental or climate benefits from all this sacrifice and warned of dire consequences if we do not act immediately. Prophecies of climate doom issue weekly from the pulpit of CSIRO.

However, there is growing scientific evidence and opinion that carbon dioxide in the atmosphere does not control the climate. Thus all the resources spent on attempting to limit or remove it will be totally wasted

Emissions trading scheme futile September 16, 2008

Emissions trading scheme futile

By Professor Bob Carter

From the Courier Mail, September 11, 2008

NATURAL climate changes include warmings, coolings and more abrupt steps represented by the Great Pacific Climate Shift in 1977.

Meanwhile, lurking in the background lies the threat of visitation of another Little Ice Age.

The Rudd Government’s emissions trading policy deals only with the threat of presumed human-caused warming, and ignores the other all-too-real climate threats. The Government’s intended emissions trading scheme, therefore, does not represent proper climate policy but rather constitutes a human global warming policy – which is an entirely different, and speculative, matter.

For the hypothesis that human carbon dioxide emissions are causing dangerous global warming has failed the tests to which it has been subjected. One important test is that global temperature has failed to increase since 1998 despite an increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide of almost 5 per cent since then.
