Fiscal Politics of Global Warming

Submission to the Inquiry into Carbon Tax Pricing Mechanisms

Here are four bits of evidence that the climate models are fundamentally flawed....

The article pretty much explodes the myths of the models and points out the 'follow the money motivations of taxing carbon.

"Follow the Money" is an old maxim but it holds true when you look at who benefits from mitigation of the dangers warned against by 'Climate Scientists'.

The Failure of Al Gore: Part One
The peril is imminent, he says. It is desperate. The hands of the clock point to twelve. The seas rise, the coral dies, the fires burn and the great droughts have already begun. The hounds of Hell have slipped the huntsman’s leash and even now they rush upon us, mouths agape and fangs afoam.

But grave as that danger is, Al Gore can consume more carbon than whole villages in the developing world. He can consume more electricity than most African schools, incur more carbon debt with one trip in a private plane than most of the earth’s toiling billions will pile up in a lifetime — and he doesn’t worry. A father of four, he can lecture the world on the perils of overpopulation. Surely, skeptics reason, if the peril were as great as he says and he cares about it as much as he claims, Gore’s sense of civic duty would call him to set an example of conspicuous non-consumption. This general sleeps in a mansion, and lectures the soldiers because they want tents.
The money shot is at the end:
Add to this {gross hypocrisy of 'Do as I say, not as I do'} that the Vice President persists in partisanship — taking pot shots not simply at Republicans and conservatives who disagree with him on climate issues, but mocking and scorning precisely the values and views of the people he (ostensibly) hopes to persuade — and he presents the inescapable impression among skeptics that he is not serious.

If Al Gore really wants to understand why the global green movement has tanked, he should start by taking a long hard look in the mirror. Gaia, too, can be betrayed by a kiss.

In populist speeches and broadcast programs, politicians and those who suck at the teat of climate research insist that the 'deniers' or skeptics are funded directly or indirectly by energy companies. In fact, the opposite is true. Oil companies, especially are on board the bandwagon because it's 'politically correct'

You will not read it in the media from an investigative reporter and I would bet it's not that they haven't tried to find a connection.. it's that they can't and if they do find some funding link, that will invite looking into where the Alarmist money actually comes from.
But you can go here if you want flat out denials of shady connections by some prominent skeptics

Are Skeptical Scientists funded by ExxonMobil?

The point is that this small blog asked the people in question to respond to the charges. No major media has done that up to this point. Why do you think that is?

Lying liars and the Crooks, Cheats and Lemmings who fund them
First look at Gore's fortunes since he devoted full time to his chicken little crusade. Go ahead chart his personal worth.

Then take the word of former member of the advocate teams, here's just one:

Former “alarmist” scientist says Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) based in false science
The whole idea that carbon dioxide is the main cause of the recent global warming is based on a guess that was proved false by empirical evidence during the 1990s. But the gravy train was too big, with too many jobs, industries, trading profits, political careers, and the possibility of world government and total control riding on the outcome. So rather than admit they were wrong, the governments, and their tame climate scientists, now outrageously maintain the fiction that carbon dioxide is a dangerous pollutant.

Couple that with the easily arrived at understanding that there is no money to be earned or research grants to be had by studies contradicting the alarmism.
No, not even from the big oil concerns... what would be the point? Any findings to the truth have already been raised with the false charges levied against the skeptics. There was no truth to them but the charges were laid.

And there's the fact that big oil stands to profit in either case; it's a matter of marketing so why not take the 'Green Side' and bet on non-existent futures, at least in your image PR. A few tens of millions invested in doomed to fail renewable projects is small change and easily written off.

Climategate which showed the machinations of the scientists to protect their theories against rebuttal, to the point of destruction of raw data and hiding of pertinent code sequences as well as the subsequent coverup by investigators who had stakes in the game tells us the matter is pretty serious.

The failures of pet 'renewables' when put into practice. Spain was a leader in renewables and their program is a shambles losing money faster than it could find new funding until most projects were simply abandoned.
The discovery that Wind Farms need a megawatt of conventional generation for backup against every mega watt provided and that they not only are mechanically unreliable but dont work when it's TOO windy or TOO COLD. Cold being just the time they would be most efficient.

The really scary part is that almost every government's large scale program has fallen miserably short or caused havoc and had to be shut down
Australia's home insulation being a hallmark failure; it resulted in hundreds of house fires and at least four deaths.

Studies found that Germany's biofuels program is resulting in massive deforestation in third world and actually results in higher CO2 release than if it did not exist. All of which is being dutifully ignored.

The fiction that if oil prices rise high enough, corn ethanol will become price competitive.. ludicrous! Production and transportation costs will ALWAYS hinge on the price of electricity, diesel fuel and fertilizers.

Consider the reports of success in Carbon Cap and Trade schemes and large scale wind and solar energy projects.
No, you didn't miss them.. after more than a decade of carbon trading and pilot and production wind and solar projects, there aren't any successes. But lots of people have made money on them.

Two professional environmentalists in Australia have had enough of the fraud and started a movement to restore credibility to environmental science by educating the public directly.
