Climate Alarmists Follow Acid Rain Scare Playbook

April 12, 2019 by


By Larry Bell ~ There is nothing coincidental about common déjà vu features of a CO2 climate crisis-premised war on fossil fuels and a hysterically-hyped sulfur dioxide (SO2) emission acid rain environmental calamity a half-century ago. Both scams have claimed to be based upon dire computer model-based predictions calling for costly interventions. Both also involved […]

Climate Change Australia – Government Moves To Cave In To Emissions Trading

December 5, 2016 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ This would be a serious political and financial mistake for Australia. But it is so typical of Labor-lite Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull: The Turnbull government will consider the use of international permits to attempt to reduce Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions as part of its landmark review into climate change policies, but […]

Australian Politics – The Australian Labor Party Is Signing Australia Up For An International Rort In Carbon Offsets

May 3, 2016 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ The Australian Labor Party will open us up to being rorted blind by carbon credit shysters trading in hot air. Here is Labor’s plan: Labor’s Climate Change Action Plan will … create new opportunities for Australian firms to trade and engage with other ETS [emissions trading scheme] jurisdictions – already 40 […]

Carbon Credits: Just Buying Hot Air

August 26, 2015 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ A pretend fix to a pretend warming that’s a pretend catastrophe – and it’s a pretend fix of foreign carbon credits that Labor recommends: The vast majority of carbon credits generated by Russia and Ukraine did not represent cuts in emissions, according to a new study. The authors say that offsets […]

Trading In Air To Make No Difference To The Temperature

July 31, 2013 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Here, Andrew summarises the article from Joanne Nova, an article published today in the main Australian national news outlet The Australian, reproduced in its National Affairs section. The link Andrew provides here with his Post is to that article. The article just includes a small introduction and the rest of the […]

Carbon Tax: Van Hollen’s Latest Version

July 16, 2013 by


By Nicolas Loris and Katie Tubb ~ Representative Chris Van Hollen (D–MD) is expected to soon introduce a new rendition of his cap-and-dividend carbon tax. Like earlier versions, Van Hollen’s bill would require carbon-dioxide-emitting industries (such as electric utilities) to buy emission permits. Some of the money raised would be divvied up to energy consumers […]

Here We Go Again. The IPCC Prepares For A Scare

April 23, 2013 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Strange. An Australian paper claiming unprecedented warming of our part of the world is quickly exposed as having made a howler that causes it to be withdrawn. Yet slabs of it seem now to have been included in the IPCC’s upcoming review of global warming. Too convenient to exclude? UPDATE The […]

They Said The World Would Warm Dangerously, Too

April 18, 2013 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Climate Change Minister Greg Combet in April 2012:: KELLY: Have you looked at the Bloomberg New Energy Finance prediction which suggests that the international carbon prices could be as low as $5 a tonne by 2020 let alone by 2015? COMBET: Well I have discussed a range of the forecasts while […]

CO2 Tax Australia – We Pay Europe $1 Billion For Nothing

August 31, 2012 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Alan Moran says the Gillard Government’s latest backflip on the carbon tax – letting the price fall to European levels – makes a mad tax even madder: First it has abandoned the intent of the carbon tax, which as the Government appears to have forgotten, is an 80 per cent reduction […]

Save The Planet, Starve The People

July 13, 2012 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Is it not mad that the new world of “carbon trading” involves getting less food from the farm? JOHN Kite is at the helm of a newly acquired, neglected cattle station in South Australia’s outback that could soon become one of the first indigenous-owned carbon farming projects in the country… University […]

No Carbon Trading Market, But Lots Of Scams

November 3, 2011 by


By Andrew Bolt Greg Sheridan is right, of course:  Although the carbon tax will cost Australians $9 billion in its first year, our greenhouse emissions continue to rise under the tax. We hit our target of a 5 per cent reduction mainly by buying carbon credits on the international market, which the government assumes will […]

Make-Believe Schemes For A Make-Believe Fix To A Make-Believe Problem

October 1, 2011 by


By Andrew Bolt The Gillard Government plans to cut our emissions by 160 million tonnes a year by 2020 actually involves paying foreigners for offsets for 100 million tonnes of that target. That means billions a year sent overseas on schemes in, say, India: A diplomatic cable published last month by the WikiLeaks website reveals […]

Of Windy Schemes And Windless Power

April 9, 2011 by


By Andrew Bolt Who’d have thought that a trade in hot air might be rorted? The Sydney Morning Herald alleges: A SYDNEY carbon credits company thought to have been running some of the world’s biggest offsets deals appears to be a fake, shifting paper certificates instead of saving forests and cutting greenhouse emissions. Shift2neutral says […]

Memo to America: Don’t do Carbon Trading!

December 8, 2010 by


By Roger Helmer, MEP Senator Harry Reid has repeatedly denounced opposition to carbon trading as “dangerous.” Senator Reid is wrong. It is the House and Senate climate and renewable energy bills that are dangerous. Fortunately, the recent elections and the ongoing dissension at the Cancun climate summit could bode ill for carbon trading, any successor […]

Climate Change Idiocy and The Economist

November 26, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba For a brief period I subscribed to The Economist, the London-based internationally distributed magazine, but I stopped as it became obvious that its editors are idiots and the general purpose of the magazine is to ignore any and all facts that might contradict their obsession with “global warming” and now “climate change.” […]

Warmists Put Norfolk Island On Ration

November 1, 2010 by


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 […]

Carbon Dioxide Riches Disappear

September 1, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba The headlines report the way the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has been lying and some, myself included, are calling for an end to this snakes’ nest of global deception. I keep waiting for some environmental group to announce that the Earth is running out of oxygen. It’s the kind of huge […]

Labor’s Hype Will Cost Us Power

July 20, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt The Australian Labor Government’s hype about setting a “price on carbon” threatens to turn off the lights very soon: A new survey has found electricity generators have slashed capital spending on power stations by $10 billion because of uncertainty over carbon policy. The finding has fuelled business concerns about the adequacy of […]

New Zealand Sacrifices To Save The World 0.04 Per Cent

July 2, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt New Zealand Prime Minister John Key had it right the first time, in 2005: I rise on behalf of the National Party to give the good news to the people of New Zealand—that is, the Climate Change Response Amendment Bill is a load of rubbish and the National Party will not be […]

Kerry Lieberman – The Great Big April Fools Day Tax Grab

May 14, 2010 by


Where do you start? This Legislation, artfully called The American Power Act, is quite literally dynamite, but not for what you might think. 987 pages, and the thing that worries me most is that surely there must be people out there who, in drafting this legislation, must know the impact it is going to have. […]

Au Revoir, Carbon Tax

March 26, 2010 by


By Jeff Witt As the Obama administration makes it clear they want to pursue a carbon capping policy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the French government announced that it would abandon plans to impose a similar carbon tax on domestic energy and transportation fuels. The reason for the French government’s change of tune is obvious. […]

Prepare For The Next Bubble…For A Made Up Commodity

February 23, 2010 by


By Nick Loris At least when there was a housing bubble, there were actual houses involved. The next bubble could ostensibly be a carbon dioxide bubble; the newly-created, artificial market for a clear, odorless gas is growing at rapid rates. According to a new article from Mark Shapiro in Harper’s: Carbon trading is now the […]

Carbon Is Now The Millstone Around Rudd’s Neck

December 22, 2009 by


By Andrew Bolt The failure of Copenhagen makes it now impossibly hard for Kevin Rudd to sell his emissions trading scheme to Australians. Already the revolt is fast gaining steam: WHEN Keith De Lacy was treasurer of Queensland, a certain K. Rudd was the other can-do man in the then state government. Now that the […]

Climategate: We Won The Battle, But At Copenhagen We Just Lost The War

December 20, 2009 by


By James Delingpole Copenhagen has been a disaster for the free world and hardly anyone seems to have noticed. We have been distracted by the sweet schadenfreude as the event was overshadowed by the Climategate scandal at the beginning, and the Russian bombshell at the end. And by our delight in seeing the many business […]
