Aussie professor on cost of climate policies in Courier Mail , June 18 2007 p16. Prof. Bob Carter, Environmental Scientist, James Cook University stated: “In one of the more expensive ironies of history, the expenditure of more than $US 50 billion on research into global warming since 1990 has failed to demonstrate any human caused climate trend, let alone a dangerous one. Yet the expenditure will pale into insignificance compared with the squandering of money that is going to accompany the introduction of carbon trading or taxation system. The cost of thus expiating comfortable middle class angst are, of course, going to be imposed upon the poor and underprivileged.”
Editorial Comment: If we consumers have caused the problem it is only fair to tax us to fix it, but if we ordinary voters have not, then any climate change tax is theft that will only enrich Government coffers, pay for and enable the bringing of a one world Government system a little closer, and impoverish most of us to the point where our vote and our voice are financially irrelevant, as well as achieving nothing in regards to the climate.
