The Global Warming Grand Fraud – Did the Tax Plan Come before Proving the Science ?

Posted on: May 2, 2010


Mr Rudd is on record that,” there would be cash assistance for 3.6 million middle income households, half of which would be fully compensated for extra expenses”.( incurred as a result of the ETS being passed on to consumers) ‘

“Single pensioners would get an extra $455 a year as compensation and couples $686 and the hundreds of millions,”would come from forcing industries to buy permits for the tonnage of carbon pollution they produce” A Greens Senator has written to a friend of mine imploring her to to write to her MP “to get the ETS passed”

Dennis Avery of the Hudson Institute, a U.S. Think Tank sent this to me a day ago.

The giant state of California has created only 48,000 “green jobs” over the 13 years from 1995 to 2008. Green jobs still make up only 1 percent of California’s economy. Worse, says State Senator Bob Dutton, the high energy taxes needed to create those few green jobs are at the same time killing millions of jobs in all sorts of industries across the state. California’s unemployment has soared from less than 5 percent to more than 12 percent since Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed the California Global Warming Solutions Act three years ago.

The governor promised that the global warming tax would “create a whole new industry to pump up our economy, a clean-tech industry that creates jobs, sparks new cutting-edge technology and will be a model for the rest of the nation and the rest of the world.” Instead, the global warming taxes will drive up the prices of all non-renewable energy—as they were intended to do.

California taxpayers will now pay for wind turbines and solar panels made in China, while California has lost more than 600,000 manufacturing jobs. Business relocation specialist Joseph Vranich says he’s working full time to help companies flee California’s rising costs and restrictions. He warns that no one is calling about moving into the Golden State.

Senator Dutton points to CalPortland Cement, which has cancelled its California expansion plans and is considering a Nevada location instead. It recently closed a cement operation in Colton, laying off 100 workers.

That’s a preview of the “green jobs” impact. The manufacturing—and farming ( In the US)—will be done in places that don’t impose energy taxes. If the Congress imposes import tariffs, that still won’t provide cost-effective energy for American farming, manufacturing, or transport. With far less energy available, our standards of living must drop dramatically. ( Australia imported $100 million food products from China in 2009. Is that just a beginning? RS)

The Wall Street Journal reports the Southern California Public Power Authority is warning of a 30 percent hike in electric rates. The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power has told business to expect a 21 percent hike this year. LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa says the city must raise rates because “the State is breathing down our necks . . . where we could be looking at fines of $300 million [in 2012] and $600 million on top of that.” ( SA has been warned of a 30% power price hike. RS)

All of this in spite of the low correlation between CO2 and our thermometer records—22 percent. The correlation with sunspots is 79 percent. Does Washington care? Or does President Obama want $6 gasoline, tripled electric bills—and $800 billion per year in energy taxes to “spread the wealth” among his allies? (End) ( Is Rudd “spreading the wealth” by giving me $455 a year” to cover increased costs when a loaf of bread – the wheat costs 20 cents – has already reached $5.20? RS)

The U.S. Is fortunate that there are States that have not created an ETS, offering an alternative to such high costs that cause loss of jobs, albeit a quiet exodus, but Australia is not insulated ( sorry !) because the ETS plan is Federal. Shall we see a new exodus to stay in business? Bonds taking their undies off to China would pale in comparison and today Senator Nick X has waded into the Food from China.
