My editorial from The Bolt Report – what are the Liberals for if they agree to Malcolm Turnbull’s new carbon tax?
I watched in despair last night. As their ABC debated among a minority of themselves. How they can price Australians out of the electricity market.
All full of “bright” ideas of how to increase our reliance on renewanbles. With no factual “ideas” on how to replace retired generation. Without plunging the most vulnerable in our society into literal darkness. Read closing coal fired power stations.
All with absolutely no idea of the cost to this country’s industry or its people’s that industry supports. All without acknowledging the total hypocricy of their arguments. That coal we export, that we are not allowed to burn here to keep the lights on with cheap affordable power for all. Is then burnt by countrys we are expected to pay for “carbon credits”, driving the price of electricity forever higher, under Turnbuls emmissions trading scheme to keep the lights on here.
But if that’s not enough, the greens and others in the cult of global warming demand that, that very exporting of coal is stopped.. When that happens this country’s economy will crash and burn. America is dealing with the after affects of the strangulation of its economy under the Obama administrations commitment to the cult of global warming in no uncertain terms. We now need an opposition to deal with this world wealth distribution in the same decisive way.
I gleaned this from the comments. Which further highlights the ignorance of those who demand we bow to this socialist fraud and attack on our way of life. To redistribute the wealth of countrys who have successfully managed their assets. For what? To save the planet from a possible couple of tenths of a degree in temperature rise? Like the rest of these alarmists procumations, to say it’s hardly catostrophic would be an understatement.
“Solar is ONLY available 30% of the time.
Wind from 60% to 20% depending on weather.
Natural gas, 100%
Hydro 100% (if the water is available)
Finally, the futility of what these ideolygy driven minority pelicans seek to impose on the majority. Is highlighted, again, as other people’s money runs out.
