Greg Combet (Australian Government Minister For Climate Change And Energy Efficiency)

Terry McCrann on being buried in global lies – and China’s emissions:

Everything, and I do mean everything, that Australia’s Minister for Climate Change Greg Combet and indeed, even Prime Minister Julia Gillard say on climate change is either a direct lie or a very deliberate constructive lie…

The lie from Gillard was that China was closing a coal-fired power station every fortnight or so… What Gillard, of course, didn’t say is that China is opening many more and much bigger, newer, and cleaner coal-fired power stations…

Similarly Combet keeps claiming … China is making huge increases in renewables.

Yes, they are making huge increases in the production of solar panels to sell to gullible politicians and the public in developed countries.

The lie to all this utter Combet crap was give by the latest IEA (International Energy Agency) projections, which showed China, already the world’s biggest emitter of CO2, … will increase its annual CO2 emissions by something over 2.5 million tonnes… We will cut ours by around 150,000 tonnes. China is going to increase by 16 times what we cut. And India is going to pump as much extra as China.

And that’s only what we cut in theory. We are going to buy two-thirds of our CO2 “cuts” from Europe, via pieces of expensive bits of paper. We are only going to cut our real emissions by around 50,000 tonnes a year.

That is to say, China and India combined will add to their emissions by around 90 times what we actually cut.
