Climate Change………..Emission Trading Etc.

Australia is about to lead he way with Climate Control and undertake to lead the way in saving our planet. Sounds good doesnt it, Australia a world leader, showing the world what needs to be done. Its a wonderful subject at this time and all the media is full of it, doesnt matter which way you turn you front it head on. At a massive cost we are going to undertake this task and lead the world. Saving this planet is not a one nation job there are still nations that are not signatories to Kyoto. Nevertheless heads down and ass up we are going to show them. But what does it mean to Mr/Mrs/Ms Average the ordinary person, it means what we are told is that everything is going to be more expensive and we will be compensated. Like F…k we will, no government anywhere has ever delivered a fair share policy to average citizens and this Australian Government wont either. The main worries already is the big companies getting their hands on whatever money the emission trading permits generate and when its all broken down you know who the losers are going to be dont you, US the idiots that put our faith in the polititiians even though we know they are the biggest liars that God shovelled guts into, especially the Australian Opposition who when in government over the 12 years preceeding november wouldnt even sign up for Kyoto and have never shown any sign of any guts at all. So what does it all mean to the average person, we are not stupid enough to not know  that it is important for the future of the planet and the future of the generations to come, so why are we worried or more to the point why am I worried.   I acknowledge the Greenhouse Effect is a major world problem and has to be dealt with, sooner than later but I query the timing and the shadow effect it is having on other issues that affect me and people like me daily. The price of petrol/gas and food and transport are everyday problems right NOW. NOW, today and tomorrow and there is no let up in sight, only more of the same gloom. $A 21 was awarded to day for lower income earners to take effect in October, 3 months away, thats supposed to help. Pensioners have to wait until a report due in February comes out to see if they are in need, so the best you can hope for there is something in the May budget. If a polititian gets a pay rise it takes immediate effect, them and us, rich and poor. The sad thing is a fortune is spent on military equipment and logistical infrastructure when the reality is if this country Australia was attacked we with these pollies that cant organise peacetime social problems do not have the brains to organise the country’s defence. Yet most of the budget is spent on defence.

Im sorry and fully aware the icecaps are melting and the temerature is rising at an alarming rate and something has to be done and should be done. But lets take care of the people who are trying to live in todays world first and let them provide the energy it takes to give full support to world issues. This can only be achieved when we the ordinary people have a full stomach and have a feeling of security thats not being eroded by big businesses and polititians………..thats my view.


One thought on “Climate Change………..Emission Trading Etc.

  1. The G8 is a comedy farce, they have no idea that unless they take radical action now, that by the time we get to 2012 money will have no significance. The lackey scientists of government and Industry do not seem to register the fact that what effects the public in this scenario will also affect them.
    World industrial chimneys must be shut down immediately, Space exploration, all unnecessary air and road traffic should be seriously curtailed to emergency vehicles only.
    Governments, industry and financial institutions work together for a change instead of lining each others pockets, employers should find work elsewhere for their workers where they can and pay out for redundancies, financial institutions should freeze mortgages for a period of time and rental’s should be subsidised by government and start acting like leaders of communities for once,
    all housing should be equipped with Solar hot water, Solar electrical systems and Rain water tanks.
    Poncing around with light globes give me a break, it’s not Joe public that has created global warming but industry, mining and governments creating wars and setting off nuclear explosions and constantly bull-dusting their communities.
    We have only to look over the past decade to see the changes that are now more rapidly destroying our earth, the devastating decline of our flora and fauna as a typical example. Personally I don’t think the real world will cotton on for a couple of years yet, then it will be too late anyway. For the disbelievers out there, try and remember this blog. I’ll be interested in what you have to say then.
