Some people think an Emissions Trading Scheme is superior to a Carbon Tax. It’s time to expose the corrupt carbon credit casino.
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.
The carbon farming caper is supported by all political parties. Under it, landowners can sell “carbon credits” if they can prove that they have reduced carbon dioxide by capturing it as humus in soil, or by planting forests, or by allowing re-growth of woody weeds, or by reducing feral animal emissions (shooting camels) or even by promising solemnly to NOT clear specified parcels of forest.
We are told, incessantly, that carbon dioxide is the main cause of global warming – it is not. The primary source of surface heat is radiant energy from the sun.
