The Social “Cost” of Carbon is a Positive

Nothing better illustrates the stupidity and evil intent of Green philosophy than their promotion of a mythical guesstimate called the “social cost of carbon” (SCC). They use this bureaucratic weapon to demonise the fabulous fossil fuels that deliver food, heat, light and power to the modern world.

                           Let’s consider life before coal, oil and gas were harnessed.


There was no steel and no cars, tractors, trucks, trains, planes or electric power. It was a world of sulkies, sailing boats and sun-dried food. Hunters used bows and spears, farmers used oxen and wooden ploughs and threshed grain with wooden flails. Half of all crops grown went to feed draft animals. 

Forests surrounding towns were felled for firewood, charcoal, shingles, houses, ships, wagons and bridges. Whalers scoured the oceans to produce whale oil for lamps, and dung was collected for fuel. For most people, life was one of hunger and toil.


Fossil fuels changed all this and also brought many other social benefits.

                                              C02 continues to green planet Earth


Greens seem unaware that “carbon” coming from man-made CO2 is beneficial plant food supporting all life on Earth including polar bears, cane toads, prickly pear, rain forests and wheat.


Moreover, in those countries which use the most hydro-carbons (such as USA, UK and Australia) we see prosperous people, trees protected, whales revered, arts thriving, cleaner air and water, and agriculture producing more food and oxygen from less land.


The SCC is a fraud – carbon fuels have produced immense social benefits and will continue to do so.

Good argument to welcome in the new year, Thanks Viv.

Greenies are a collective of blind freddys with blinkers on. From bullshit is gleaned more bullshit to the point where they are blaming bullshit fr global warming! If they could just shut the fuck up for a while the bullshit would slowly compost and provide the very fodder for their greentopia. Nah, they wouldn't get it...

thanks for the post cliveh. Ignore the rabid drug-addicted anti-semite above...he just spews his Jew hate all over PP....

TWO, you should go before it's destroyed forever....maybe that's why Enoch is missing...he might've joined a vigilante gang. The food/dining scene in Melbourne is fantastic. Just love that city.

Everything the left does and stands for is a fraud.

The best argument to have with an alarmist leftard is: "If you want to reduce carbon (dioxide) pollution - stop f*cking breathing!"

According to international law, the Jewish people are the sole beneficiary of Self-Determination in the land that was Mandatory Palestine i.e.the land west of the Jordan River, including Judea and Samaria. .

The rights of the Jewish People to Palestine are enshrined in three legally binding international treaties. These rights have not expired and are still in full force and effect.

All rights emanating from the three international treaties were approved by the League of Nations and inherited by the United Nations. They did not expire. The United Nations had no right to vary them.

The principle of law that rights once granted or recognized under a treaty or other legal instrument do not expire with the expiration of that treaty or instrument is now codified in article 70(1)(b) of the 1969 Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (the Treaty on Treaties). This article states that “unless the treaty otherwise provides or the parties otherwise agree, the termination of a treaty… does not affect any right, obligation or legal situation of the parties created through the execution of the treaty prior to its termination”.

And Article 80 of the UN Charter states that No right gained by a country through a mandate will expire as a result of the expiration of the mandate.”

The reality of the Middle East is firstly,that Palestine will never exist as a separate nation, mainly because it is not in their interests to do so.Secondly, the surrounding Arab nations need to keep Israel off balance while they turn the screws on the US.


Hatred, carefully nurtured through generations of indoctrination and propaganda have made 'peace' impossible between the Muslim exiles (they are NOT Palestinians) from the many wars against the state of Israel and Jews worldwide. Don't look for a 'solution' to the problem when Islam's goal is now extermination of all Jews everywhere.

MEET THE STAFF OF SNOPES… NOT QUITE WHAT YOU EXPECTED IS IT?
.
Since Facebook has hired Snopes.com as one of their new “fact checkers” to put an end to the spread of “fake news” across Facebook, wouldn’t this be a great time to meet the folks behind Snopes? Fasten your seatbelts for this one. How many times have you been talking to someone who rebutted something you said with a comment like, “But Snopes.com said that isn’t true,” or something to that effect, as if Snopes.com somehow is an authority on anything?
.
For folks to rely so heavily on what Snopes.com says, I can't help but wonder how many people think Snopes.com consists of several floors in a Manhattan sky rise with dozens of employees working tirelessly around the clock to “fact check” everything that runs counter to the liberal ideology. Well, as you’re about to learn, nothing could be farther from the truth. In the video below, you’ll learn that the three employees that make up Snopes.com, are an embezzler, a hooker, and a dominatrix… and no… this is not a joke…

Nahhh, sorry. She said her name but as soon as I mentioned Godbolt, they all fell around shrieking and laughing uncontrollably. I have to call back when they have composed themselves, but I expect the same response. Do they know you, by chance?

IE, I forgot to mention that there are high tensile steel bars over the window and tempered glass, to stop those with a temper. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAAHHHAAAAHA

Dear Donna has the latest fashion in canvas jackets, with ties at the back. That will keep her straight.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHHAAAHA

Just did and they referred me to the Flinders Terrace Health Centre. They have a room ready for you, near a window with a view. Poor sick Donna Nobody.

I have finally come to the firm conclusion, that the sub cow pat dweller is mad. The farmer told me that he has been feeding his stock hemp. That passes through to the dung beetles who post here. Have you ever seen a dung beetle with wobbly boots?

Poor Donna. Does not even realise that Bella Donna is a very poisonous plant. Just like her moronic posts. You claim that you aren't the real Donna but her seeesta. Just a cardboard cutout. As was Marigold and her sister smartgirl. You are all one and the same. Bite me Godbolt and swallow a big chunk. That will rid us of you forever.
I expect that you are very good at swallowing. Didn't you have a name in the jail? Deep throat I heard.

There must be some sort of a "Trade Off Matrix" in need of making, Dracula. Including items like "a good piss", a "good root", a "perfect rubber of bowls", a "long run in a pristine slope", a "long battle with a brown in a hardly touched hole", "18 holes with excellent companions" and so on...

Good Australian beer was always demanding on the palate, Ol 'Fucker. Melbourne beer was always more bland than NSW or Queensland beers. They stopped using hops directly in the kettle and replaced it with a parsimonious dose of "extract", replaced malted barley with starch too. Melbourne had the advantage over Sydney of better water. The Global market and the consequent lowest common denominator was imposed on Australian drinkers, Australians.

The cow has just dropped another fresh pat. Jump in Godbolt and stake your claim.

OMG the dung beetle crawls back under the cow pat and out the other side.

We have the best dining in Melbourne, I hear. But, I haven't been to Melbourne since the seventies.

Multiculturalism is a total scam designed by the cultural marxists to destroy western civilisation.. It seems that there is a genetic aspect to culture as well, but I was shocked (but should I have been?) when I discovered the totally taboo subject of race and IQ. If you don'r believe me check it out...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jVgkbsaiKPs and there is much more...
