"Carbon (Dioxide) trading is now the fastest growing commodities market on earth.....And here’s the great thing about it. Unlike traditional commodities markets, which will eventually involve delivery to someone in physical form, the carbon (dioxide) market is based on lack of delivery of an invisible substance to no-one. Since the market revolves around creating carbon (dioxide) credits, or finding carbon (dioxide) reduction projects whose benefits can then be sold to those with a surplus of emissions, it is entirely intangible."

This blog has been tracking the 'Global Warming Scam' for over ten years now. There are a very large number of articles being published in blogs and more in the MSM who are waking up to the fact the public refuse to be conned any more and are objecting to the 'green madness' of governments and the artificially high price of energy. This blog will now be concentrating on the major stories as we move to the pragmatic view of 'not if, but when' and how the situation is managed back to reality. To quote Professor Lindzen, "a lot of people are going to look pretty silly"

Tax triumphalism not a good look
"THE disconnect between the political/media fishbowl and mainstream Australia is often stark. We have seen a clear demonstration of that with the Prime Minister and her team applauding, kissing and congratulating each other on the passage of their carbon (dioxide) tax bills through the House of Representatives. Only yesterday Newspoll showed a massive primary vote split of 49 to 29 between the dominant, anti-carbon (dioxide) tax Coalition and the struggling, pro-carbon (dioxide) tax Labor government.
Climate change ranked as the lowest priority of the main issues for voters, and even then, more people thought the Coalition would handle the issue best. Polls have shown that well over half the population opposes the carbon (dioxide) tax and little more than a third support it. Simply, the tax is unpopular.
Yet in the rarefied atmosphere of Canberra, Labor MPs publicly pat themselves on the back for passing it. The political myopia of this self-congratulation is stunning. It only makes a bad situation worse. Labor promised not to introduce a carbon (dioxide) tax and there is already a good deal of anger from voters about the broken promise. It is being expressed through talkback radio, letters to newspapers, and polling results."
