‘Even as climate alarmists amplify their call for a worldwide tax on carbon dioxide emissions in the name of preventing global warming – penguins, polar bears, Himalayan glaciers and Arctic sea ice are all thriving.

With dire proclamations of ice free Arctic summers vehemently debunked, the latest data indicates that both wildlife and the environment in earth’s coldest regions has not experienced the catastrophic devastation predicted as a result of man-made climate change.’

Australia Implements Carbon Tax Scam


Monday, 11 July 2011 11:06

‘Australia unveiled plans to hit its worst polluters with a carbon tax in the nation’s most sweeping economic reform in decades, smoothing the way for the largest emissions-trade scheme outside Europe with tax cuts for voters and sweeteners for industry.

Prime Minister Julia Gillard said today 500 companies including steel and aluminium manufacturers would pay a A$23 ($24.70) per tonne carbon tax from next year, rising by 2.5 percent a year, moving to a market-based trading scheme in 2015.

“Australians want to do the right thing by the environment,” said Gillard, whose country is the rich world’s worst per-capita greenhouse gas emitter due to a heavy reliance on ageing coal-fired power stations for electricity.’

Forest Density Study Blows Hole in Excess CO2 Myth and the Supposed Need for Carbon Taxes

‘We have all heard it before. Humans are supposedly producing too much carbon dioxide (CO2), which is contributing to “global warming” — and the only solution, of course, is to have the United Nations (UN) distribute carbon use credits and implement carbon taxes to offset an impending global disaster. However, a new study published in the online journal PLoS One helps debunk this myth by showing that the natural world is basically taking care of this excess CO2 naturally, without the need for increased government control over individuals.

Anyone with a basic knowledge of the way trees and other plants function knows that they require CO2 in order to survive. And upon absorbing CO2, plants naturally release oxygen for humans and animals to breathe. This cycle has been going on since the beginning of time, and it continues to occur today, despite the plethora of human environmental abuses that appear to have damaged and obstructed the earth in many other ways.’
