A little simplyfied but you get the drift:

Let's put this into a bit of perspective for laymen!

ETS is another tax. It is equal to putting up the GST to 12.5% which would be unacceptable and produce an outcry.

Read the following analogy and you will realize the insignificance of carbon dioxide as a weather controller.

Pass on to all in your address book including politicians and may be they will listen to their constituents, rather than vested interests which stand to gain by the ETS.

Here's a practical way to understand Julia Gillard Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme.

Imagine 1 kilometre of atmosphere and we want to get rid of the carbon pollution in it created by human activity.  Let's go for a walk along it.

The first 770 metres are Nitrogen.

The next 210 metres are Oxygen.

That's 980 metres of the 1 kilometre.  20 metres to go.

The next 10 metres are water vapour.  10 metres left.

9 metres are argon.   Just 1 more metre.

A few gases make up the first bit of that last metre.

The last 38 centimetres of the kilometre - that's carbon dioxide.  A bit over one foot.

 97% of that is produced by Mother Nature.  Itís natural.

Out of our journey of one kilometre, there are just 12 millimetres left.  Just over a centimetre - about half an inch.

Thatís the amount of carbon dioxide that global human activity puts into the atmosphere.

And of those 12 millimetres Australia puts in .18 of a millimetre.

Less than the thickness of a hair.  Out of a kilometre!

As a hair is to a kilometre - so is Australia 's contribution to what Julia Gillard calls Carbon Pollution.

Imagine Brisbane 's new Gateway Bridge , ready to be opened by Julia Gillard.  It's been polished, painted and scrubbed by an army of workers till its 1 kilometre length is surgically clean.  Except that Julia Gillard says we have a huge problem, the bridge is polluted - there's a human hair on the roadway.  We'd laugh ourselves silly. 

There are plenty of real pollution problems to worry about. 

It's hard to imagine that Australia 's contribution to carbon dioxide in the world's atmosphere is one of the more pressing ones.  And I can't believe that a new tax on everything is the only way to blow that pesky hair away.

We should all tell ourselves that whenever we hear the words "carbon tax"
it's really just a lazy bastards expression.

They've chosen to leave out the word "dioxide"


Plants and trees need it, and without plants and trees, we're stuffed.

The stuff passed in govt over the weekend will have a pretty huge effect on the power generation companies, in some cases looking at doubling the cost of production, although some will have various concessions available.

So far, no tax on Club Carbon. :darkside:

The whole thing is good but if you want the quick fix go to 4.30 and the interview that starts there -

It doesn't get off to a good start.  It's nothing like as bad as a GST of 12.5%

You mean he's not blaming HAARP experiments like the rest of the greenies ?
