>History repeating itself so quickly?

Something triggered a ‘mental moment’ the other day, whilst I was discussing AGW, Emissions Trading Schemes, Politicians, and generally how we the people get screwed!
I’m not quite sure how I regressed back to the ENRON FIASCO of 2001 and then made the mental leap to Carbon Emissions Trading Schemes. It was quite a leap, but it seemed so right at the time.

It seemed to me that the ENRON fiasco showed us just how people in high places can, literally conjure up things out of nowhere, and make money on them… until things start looking bad, then they cash in quickly and (try to) do a runner!

Enron owed part of its early success to emissions trading. Basically emissions trading was established as a way for some companies to profit from pollution while allowing some companies to continue to produce the chemicals that can cause acid rain.

Lawrence Solomon, executive director of Energy Probe and Urban Renaissance Institute, is reporting that Enron played a major role in pushing the global warming scam, including establishing the Kyoto Protocols. Enron had already profited from trading sulfur dioxide credits and saw the potential for even greater profits from trading what would become known as “carbon credits”.

Now we have this wonderful world wide (and local) Carbon Emissions Trading Scheme being planned. BAD Greenhouse gasses made by (for example) Coal Fired Power Stations, can be traded off for GOOD GREEN Carbon Credits that are from (for example) your local forestry plantation. That’s on your local scene. But what happens internationally?
IT IS IMPORTANT to keep focused on the reason (so we are told) we need an ETS in the first place, and that is to adjust for the challenges of Global Climate Change. Remember also as a signatory to the KYOTO PROTOCOL Australia has agreed to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.

The media has been the avenue by which WE THE PEOPLE have been indoctrinated as to the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Greenhouse gas emissions we are told, cause world temperatures to rise, specifically Carbon Dioxide emissions from industry in the developed world, and in the developing world.

A STORY:
So here I am. I live on a small island, out in the middle of the Pacific or Indian Ocean. On our Island we have no heavy industry, we live a simple life, harvesting sea food and coconuts. We are happy. We do however have a rather vast piece of natural forest, some might call it ‘jungle’ on our island. How fortuitous for us!

In your country you have acid belching industries, spewing noxious gasses into the atmosphere. This is going to cost you dearly once the UN begins levying taxes on Greenhouse Gas Emissions. But there is a way around this.

You can buy – purchase my Islands GREEN Carbon Credits (at a price to be negotiated) and use them to off set the taxation that will be imposed on you because of your noxious industry and billowing greenhouse gasses. We get a few dollars to help us with ongoing development with our island and indigenous peoples.

YOU? Well you get to continue poisoning and polluting the atmosphere and spewing out your noxious gasses, whilst making a huge profit on the materials you manufacture and sell to developing nations.

So is there a reduction in greenhouse gasses? NOPE, just a reduction in the Carbon Tax you would have had to pay.

Does this help the planet? NOPE, just the shareholders bank balance.
Is this Carbon Trading Scheme the New ENRON?

Who will truly benefit from it? Certainly not the poorer nations who will be sacrificing their natural untainted habitat into the hands of greedy Carbon Trading Schemers.

And a final question to ponder:
IF it can be proven that the Carbon Dioxide in greenhouse gasses is NOT contributing to Global Warming, as in Anthropogenic Global Warming, do we truly need a Carbon Trading Scheme?

In a new development that is potentially devastating to the agenda to introduce a global carbon tax and a cap and trade system, Al Gore admits that the majority of global warming that occurred until 2001 was not primarily caused by CO2.

There is not a scientifically valid mechanism for carbon dioxide causing global warming.

A review of the research literature concerning the environmental consequences of increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide leads to the conclusion that increases during the 20th and early 21st centuries have produced no deleterious effects upon Earth’s weather and climate.

The on-line Urban Dictionary says this about ENRON:

A radical redistribution of wealth, usually from poor to rich. Trickle up theory.

Just ME in T says:

Not much changes does it?
It is going to take a lot of us people, buzzing and annoying and emailing and writing to our Elected Representatives, to get them to listen to us. To get them to honestly debate the issue, in the open, so that WE, who voted them into office, and can just as easily vote them OUT of office, have a say in the future of our Country.

We want to take care of our planet. We want to have a safe and secure future for our children. We want the facts. BOTH SIDES of the discussion plainly on the table, in broad daylight for all to see.

We don’t want to find we have been ‘screwed’ again by Our Governments.
Until next time, stay safe, be as well as you can, and KEEP praying for openness and honesty amongst our Elected Representative. Miracles do happen.

I will post more soon about the UN.
How they will be the ones taxing us.
They will be the ones making the money.
They will be the ones ruling the world,
and we won’t even have a say in it!
