Green freaks are just too funny to take seriously. Australia is on the brink of imposing the world’s biggest Carbon Tax Price and the Gillard government is scurrying around like headless chickens trying to convince people that this will be good for them……oh, and the planet. I mean, who wouldn’t want to pay more in taxes to a spendthrift government – taxes which will do f-all to lower the temperature of the earth? We’re all lining up, ready to be buggered. Gillard has even pledged to rip a further $10billion out of the economy for a Green energy fund (and to pay the bribe the Green Party demanded by pushing the legislation through) – which will invest in those new pie-in-the-sky still-not-effective Green pet projects which apparently will create millions of new Green jobs any day now to replace all those which will be lost under the Carbon Tax Price.
I’m not sure why Europe and especially Greece don’t jump on this sure to win bandwagon of job creation – it’s not like Spain lost 2.5 private jobs for every new Green job and are now also nearly bankrupt and have stopped supporting the Green industry……no, wait! Gillard does seem to know what she’s doing so Greece should be investing all their money into imposing Green taxes which will fund new Green jobs which will save Europe! The Labor party are so serious about global warming, that they even appointed a “climate change commissioner’ who runs around Australia, scaring the shit out of little kids by banging on about how the world is just about to fizzle up and die unless their parents start paying for their carbon emissions.
His name is Prof Tim Flannery and he has a doctorate in…..Palaeontology, so gosh, let’s all listen to what he has to say, because no one knows what’s going on with the climate as much as someone who digs around in the dirt looking for bones. Prof Flannery earns around $180 000 per year for a 3-day work week and gets to preach to us, the little, stupid people who just are too dumb to understand what’s really going on. Why, Prof Flannery is so worried about what’s going to happen when the rains no longer fall (just ignore the fact that Australia is now drought-free) and the rising seas (just ignore that the sea levels have dropped slightly), that he bought himself a lovely riverside house near Sydney which will be impacted were the seas to rise as he’s predicted. That is irony number 1. Irony number 2 is that this same Professor (who is the resident joke amongst Australian climate change ‘deniers’) has now said that mercury tooth fillings should be removed from corpses before being cremated to save the universe. And it won’t even cost a lot, just a pair of pliers! I suppose these are the new Green jobs Gillard was hinting at? Yeah, you could support millions of families with that one alone, so quickly close all the evil coal mines! But, what the comedian Flannery conveniently forgets to mention is about all the mercury contained in the new ‘let’s save the world from heating’ light bulbs that contain copious amounts of mercury, and for which you need to call in the FBI and Secret Service to remove from your house if they break, lest you poison the entire neighbourhood, surrounding properties and waterways.
