Correlation, Causation or a Carbon Tax Con-Job?

33
If two things vary in parallel, that is a positive correlation. But it does not prove that one causes the other. For example, wet roads...

Carbon Dioxide is not Pollution

21
We should minimise human pollution of land, atmosphere and oceans. But that has nothing to do with carbon dioxide from modern coal-burning power stations. No...

IPCC is more about Politics than Science

26
The science debate is over. They lost. Decades ago they proposed a theory that Earth’s temperature is controlled by the 0.04% trace of carbon dioxide...

Immediate Execution or Prolonged Pain?

11
The new Australian government inherited a costly and cumbersome climate bureaucracy. They seem unsure how to eliminate it. On the one hand they acted decisively,...

Last In, First Out

27
Abolishing the Climate Commission is a good start. However there are still seven climate agencies and 33 climate schemes in seven different departments yet...

Abolish Unreliable Energy Targets

28
Killing the carbon tax is not enough to restore sanity to Australia’s energy policies - the Renewable Energy Targets must also be abolished. No matter...

Taxing the air we breathe

10
Ever since life appeared on Earth, it has been nourished by four natural atmospheric gases – nitrogen, oxygen, water vapour and carbon dioxide. We...

BURYING LIFE

859
Of all the anti-carbon policies supposedly improving our climate, carbon capture and burial is probably the worst.

Restrictive Work Practices killing Green Energy

25
The problem with the green energy twins, wind and solar, is that they are unionised. The solar panels won’t work at night, or when it is...

Parasitic Power Producers

25
The green energy twins, wind and solar, are parasitic power producers. They cannot produce continuous predictable electricity without sucking backup from their hosts -...

Abolish Renewable Energy Targets

17
Australia’s Renewable Energy Target Scheme is an incredibly bad idea. Coercing and bribing people to waste community savings on unpredictable and unreliable solar and...

NEWMAN RUDD’S STAR PERFORMER

85
Kevin Rudd has been campaigning in his home State with the message that Tony Abbott will be another Campbell Newman. Let's hope so.

COOLING THE CLIMATE CLOTS

759
Billions of dollars have been wasted in the war on carbon in the vain hope of reducing natural global warming. This has disrupted the electricity market, caused numerous business closures and created a costly and oppressive climate bureaucracy.

REPLACE THE CARBON TAX… with nothing!

27
Killing Australia’s carbon tax is a good idea but it should happen now, not later. But replacing it with an ETS is a very...

A BABY BONUS FOR AN ABORTION?

38
Sometimes the answers to questions are simple. Like when you ask Centrelink if they pay out Parental Leave or the Baby Bonus Bereavement Payment following abortions.

GILLARD’S DARK SIDE MATERIALISES

402
What kind of society gives $5,000 lump sum payments to women after an abortion? What kind of society pays out parental leave schemes to mums and dads who have willingly killed their child?

TAKING AUSTRALIANS FOR A RIDE

168
Minister for Trade and Competitiveness, Craig Emerson, PM Julia Gillard and Treasurer Swan continue to trot out the line that Ford's manufacturing closure is due to the high Aussie dollar.

ANOTHER NAIL IN THE MALAYSIA SOLUTION COFFIN

79
Today Malaysia faces an important election; a poll that has unreported consequences (by our media) for the Gillard government.

DIRTY ENERGY THUMBS UP FROM CLIMATE CHANGE MINISTER COMBET

35
Did I read that right? Minister for Climate Change and Energy Efficiency, Greg Combet, is appearing before ICAC for supporting a tainted coal mine in the NSW Hunter Valley.

Dear Ms Gillard,

112
I've just watched you on The 7:30 Report lecturing the interviewer, Leigh Sales, on the "...roit thing to do..." for our kids on education.

THE CONROY CON UNRAVELS

96
Just last week, Communications Minister Stephen Conroy, mocked the Coalition's NBN plan for being initially 75 mbps slower than his own $40 billion NBN.

SPEED KILLS

50
Since yesterday, the Fairfax online news has been leading with various headline versions of, "Experts Agree: Liberal NBN plan a 'lemon'".

LIGHT AT THE END OF THE CARBON TAX TUNNEL

112
I agree, the carbon tax is a headache for Tony Abbott BUT.... there is light at the end of the tunnel and I am immune to Gillard Labor games.

Poorest Pay For Power Policy Failures

0

Once again Julia Gillard has adopted spin over substance, this time over power bills.
When I say 'spin', I'm trying very hard to be charitable. I really mean BS.

The Smoking Gun We Weren’t Supposed To Find….

9

Today's 'The Australian' provides the 'smoking gun' that Julia Gillard has challenged existed, claiming there is no evidence she wrote to the WA Commissioner for Corporate Affairs to establish the now infamous fraudulent 'slush fund'. Ms Gillard's official reply last night when presented with the evidence, she (again) can't recall that she misled the WA Corporate Affairs Commissioner.

Channel Nine Vultures

0

Channel Nine News should be ashamed of itself, hanging around the villa of the four Italian girls like a pack of vultures, inciting high drama and hysterical performances. By the reporter's own admission, the girls reacted to the cameras. Channel Nine, please leave them alone. It's time to give the girls and the family some space.

The Four Italian Girls

0
The mother of the four Italian girls has vowed to continue to fight in the Italian courts. Fight for what?...(cont'd)

HSU BOSS ARRESTED

0

The stood aside Health Services Union boss, Michael Williamson has been arrested. He allegedly attempted to hinder police in their investigations into fraud within the HSU.

FOUR GIRLS’ MOTHER… evil to the bitter end

0

The girls’ mother stood by and watched her children be dragged, crying, to a waiting plane. She had told her children she would not be going back with them so the children would tell the court they wanted to stay. The trauma for girls was a small matter for the mother in her final attempt to muster media support. When the girls were on the plane she told a reporter that she would return “tomorrow”. She was always going to return. She has custody awarded to her by an Italian court. There seems there is no depth of indecency this woman will not stoop to.

FIRESTORM A GORE ‘FRAUD’

0

AN Australian filmmaker has refused to sell footage of a firestorm to former US vice-president Al Gore - to use in Mr Gore's climate presentations - because the event was unrelated to climate change.

MUSLIM LEADERS CALL FOR POLICE RESTRAINT

0

Leaders of Islamic communities in Sydney and Melbourne this morning called for restraint. “A tiny radical element within our movement has acted without our authority and it is unacceptable. Both sides including the Police should show restraint. We will instruct that no further demonstrations be carried out in the near future.”

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

2

Many countries have banned the immigration of those who promote the annihilation of their hosts. It seems a reasonable thing for governments to protect its people. But not for our government. I was appalled to see that Gillard approves of a visa for a person who promotes terrorism. Has political correctness completely gone mad? 

Climate plan axed to help budget: Abbott

0

Opposition Leader Tony Abbott says the government's dumping of a plan to shut down some coal-fired power stations is a budget patch-up.

Cubbie Station Boxes Ticked

0

Chinese investment in Cubbie Station is a win / win for China and for Australian jobs. Trade with China is essential to Australia’s wealth and financial health. There are safeguards in place to meet stringent national interest tests, and the Cubbie Station purchase ticked all the boxes. Barnaby Joyce’s objections are based on nationalism, but Australia is not an inward looking backwater. We’ll always need foreign investment. This $300 million injection from China and the jobs flow is a much needed boost to the area, the State of Queensland and the working families.

SCHOOL BILLS – WHO PAYS?

0

Julia Gillard makes a lot of grand statements she, or we, can't afford to fund. Again today she committed $6.5 billion spending to education reforms. She wants the States to pay 70% of the bill. The problem here is (a) the States know nothing about it (b) the States can't afford it because most States are still grappling with State Labor debts in the billions of dollars. Like Rudd, she doesn't consult yet makes bold announcements with no detail. She justified getting rid of Rudd for this very reason.

Gillard Has Damning Doc Deleted

0
Gillard’s media staff has been successful in having a copy of the fraudulent Association Incorporation Form, that displays her handwriting, taken down from Facebook.

Social Media Trolls

1

Social media has come under attack because of a minority of idiots, known in social media terms as the ‘trolls’. We will always have idiots. Don’t blame social media because it‘s misused or abused. Should we ban kitchen knives because they may not be used for their intended purpose? Ropes? Cars? Planes? Tall buildings? Bridges?. If your feelings are hurt by what’s being said on social media sites, don’t feed it oxygen by responding. Ban, delete, report, or cancel your account. The regulators and the mainstream media are now using trolls as their next excuse to ban free speech. This is about personal responsibility, not regulation.

Shooting The Messengers

1

There's been a lot of crowing and elbowing to centre stage over the Gillard-Wilson affair this past week.

Should Julia Be Treated Differently Because She Is The PM?

0

In 30+ years of cartooning, I've never seen a politician, let alone a Prime Minister, react to cartoons and / or questions in such a way that he (or she) would resort to personal abuse and denigration of the satirist at a press conference. She lost it.
