Emissions, what emissions?
As I am still more or less housebound due to a recent hip replacement,I get to watch the news and current affairs programs more often.
The recent turmoil in the Federal Liberal Party has been a bit of a circus
and the scariest clown by the name of Tony Abbot is now in the ring!
All this has focussed attention on the Emissions Trading Scheme which was put together by the Federal Government and then severely watered down to try and get it through Parliament. All was for nought as the Opposition and the Greens voted it down for totally different reasons!
The one thing I did notice was that there is a dearth of information about the nuts and bolts of this scheme.
With the Copenhagen Summit underway I can’t believe there are still people out there who still have their heads in the sand despite all the science out there that says our climate is changing.
While the earth’s climate has changed drastically many times over the millenia and will continue to do so, surely the sceptics can’t honestly believe that pouring all the crap into our atmosphere for all these years has no effect?!
It’s the same as an alcoholic heavy smoker believing that his liver and lungs will stay healthy.
The planet Earth is our only home so we should be looking after it as we have no other place to go!
Tony Abbott has nailed his colours to the wall so all those conservative voters should be a little worried as he is playing pretty scary politics with the health and liveability of our only home.
Me, I’ll be voting Green!
