McCrann: Businesses for cleaning out the taxpayer

Terry McCrann exposes the self-serving motivations of the businesses that are backing the carbon dioxide tax.

WELL, that’s a surprise. Companies with their corporate snouts deep in the multi-billion dollar carbon tax trough think that it’s a good idea.

The “almost 300 organisations” galvanised under the pompously and deceitfully self-named “Businesses for a Clean Economy” are voicing support for putting a price on carbon.

“Businesses for Cleaning out the Taxpayer,” would be a far more accurate and indeed honest label.

For, translated, they are voicing support for billions of dollars of your money being mandatorily redirected towards them to buy their otherwise useless products, along with the services which would not exist but for those products.

The full range of schemes that are already, and will be, pouring money into these climate scam troughs is mind-boggling.

They range from forcing electricity companies to buy hugely expensive so-called renewable power – mostly, wind – to the latest boondoggle, the $10 billion so-called Clean Energy Fund, which will dole out the money to the snouts directly.

And guess what? There’s a fair load of renewable energy companies. The accompanying graphic says it all.

Hi, I'm the climatenonconformist (not my real name), and I am a global warming skeptic, among the few in generation Y. With Australia facing the prospect of a carbon tax, we need to be asking the simple question; where is the evidence that our emissions are causing any dangerous warming?

    I would like to see if there is a way of setting up a black list of companies that support this scam. If the greens and the anti fur idiots can do it so should we, after all if 40% of the world population thinks man made climate change is a scam then that’s a lot of green paper that is not going into corporate pockets. I already will not fly with Branson’s Virgin and am about to change my bank account from Westpack.
