CO2 Tax Australia – The Great Offsets Scam Begins

November 10, 2011 by


By Andrew Bolt Most of Australia’s  Gillard Government’s planned cuts to our emissions actually involves paying foreigners to cut their own.

August 26, 2011 by


By Andrew Bolt The Gillard Government can’t possibly be serious: AUSTRALIAN businesses and households will have to send about $650 billion overseas between 2020 and 2050 to buy permission to keep some of our coal-fired power stations and other industries operating.

By Andrew Bolt Notice how there was a Government grant involved in this…..TonyfromOz. The global warming faith is just the latest vehicle for people who like to order other people around “for their own good”. Nothing reveals its appeal to the inner totalitarian better than the latest taxpayer-funded research of the Southern Cross University: Southern […]

Climate […]

Blowing Wind Up Your Skirt

March 7, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba One of the keystones of the Obama administration’s energy policies has been a very expensive emphasis on “clean energy”, sometimes called “renewable energy”, allocating billions to the wind and solar energy producers. Like much of the “stimulus” bill that money is a waste. The wind power trade group, the American Wind Energy […]

October 21, 2009 by

Only Idiots Listen To These “Leaders”

October 20, 2009 by

Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, told everyone they only had a few weeks in order to save the Earth from “climate change” and this week it’s the Prime Minister of Great Britain, Gordon Brown. Ever since he was Vice President and a defeated candidate for the presidency, Al Gore […]

Beer For My Horses

September 16, 2009 by


By Iain Murray The global-warming industry would probably still be solely owned by assorted cranks and romantics (and the odd vice president) if it weren’t for a bunch of CEOs taking a leaf from Enron’s play book and attempting to monetize the issue. Playing the bootleggers in a classic bootleggers and baptists alliance, these businessmen […]

Save The Planet! Make A Useless Sacrifice

June 13, 2009 by


By Andrew Bolt. Jonah Goldberg says it makes no financial sense for the US to adopt a Rudd-style emissions trading scheme: It’s a legislative blunderbuss that fails any remotely honest cost-benefit analysis, as Jim Manzi painstakingly demonstrates in the current issue of National Review. Under the bill, the government would sell or give away waivers—call […]

June 4, 2009 by


Andrew Bolt. TonyfromOz prefaces ….. Hmm! So it isn’t just about the environment. It really is just about the money. Who would have thought that?
