The Australian Press is abuzz with the news that Julia Gillard’s Labour/Green Alliance has the definite proof that Man Made Global Warming – oops sorry, climate change is happening and that we in Australia will lead the way to reducing carbon emissions – which will of course save our plant – whilst bankrupting you via a carbon tax, at the same time.
What bothers me with all this ruckus and media hype (propaganda) is that no one reported the actual small print on the inside cover of the infamous document. What they did report was that the PROOF is now in, no need for any further argument or discussion – we have the facts to prove it etc., etc., etc., We will now press ahead with a Carbon Tax.
Now read the small print in the Climate Commission Document:
Inside Front Cover:
IMPORTANT NOTICE – PLEASE READ
This document is produced for general information only and does not represent a statement of the policy of the Commonwealth of Australia. While reasonable efforts have been made to ensure the accuracy, completeness and reliability of the material contained in this document, the Commonwealth of Australia and all persons acting for the Commonwealth preparing this report accept no liability for the accuracy of or inferences from the material contained in this publication, or for any action as a result of any person’s or group’s interpretations, deductions, conclusions or actions in relying on this material.
Oh my goodness: (quote) for general information only – and they cannot be held responsible for the accuracy, completeness and reliability….. Excuse me??? This is a Government paper – document, paid for out of taxpayer money, and they can’t and don’t guarantee accuracy or reliability of the contents? BUT they will expound its virtues all over the media, and do anything they can to silence anyone who questions or criticises the content.
If you go to the end of the report, you find: Page 60
As you’ve read in this report, we know beyond reasonable doubt that the world is warming and that human emissions of greenhouse gases are the primary cause. The impacts of climate change are already being felt in Australia and around the world with less than 1 degree of warming globally. The risks of future climate change – to our economy, society and environment – are serious, and grow rapidly with each degree of further temperature rise. Minimising these risks requires rapid, deep and ongoing reductions to global greenhouse gas emissions. We must begin now if we are to decarbonise our economy and move to clean energy sources by 2050. This decade is the critical decade.
Again I quote: ‘we know beyond reasonable doubt the world is warming and that human emissions of greenhouse gasses are the primary cause.’
Seems to me they want to have their cake and eat it too!
We cannot guarantee the accuracy of the document, but we know beyond reasonable doubt the world is warming and that human emissions of greenhouse gasses are the primary cause.
Trust me I am a politician…. just give me your
money and I will save you from yourselves!
If this isn’t pseudo science, I don’t know what is. The people, who prepared this document, did so with a predetermined end in sight. Science – where? This is the best scientific report a politician could buy – with your tax dollars of course.
Thanks to JoNova for bringing this to public attention.
