Australian Climate Madness

Climate sense from Cory Bernardi

The South Australian Liberal Senator writes bluntly about the realities of the ETS in Quadrant Online:
Even the most devout anthropogenic climate change believer knows that Australia acting alone to reduce carbon emissions will not make a jot of difference to the climate. They also know that Australian industry and jobs will disappear overseas in the absence of a truly global agreement.

Under Labor's CPRS, prices for everyday goods will rise and every power point will be come a tax collection outlet for a rapacious Government with an insatiable appetite for interfering in our lives. Worse still, acting ahead of the rest of the world might actually mean that Australia is stuck with a scheme that won't make any difference except to damage our domestic economy.

It's time for a reality check of the political action attached to the climate change debate.

Labor's CPRS is so flawed that it should not be reintroduced into the Parliament until after the global climate change talks in Copenhagen later this year. To pass this Bill, or any incarnation of it ahead of the Copenhagen talks, is sheer folly. To do so, when Labor’s scheme is not even scheduled to commence until 2011, would suggest that politics and politicians have taken leave of their senses.

Any talk of accepting, amending, improving or adapting Labor’s scheme before then is to ignore our national interest.

Well said.

  • Cory Bernardi is my new conservative pin up boy. I might not agree with everything he espouses (perhaps only 99%) but you have to admire his courage, frankness and good old fashioned honesty. Go Cory, please make a bid to be our Prime Minister - the Liberal Party needs a real leader.
