Say NO, Australia

Now we’ve got Cate Blanchett telling us to back the stupid carbon dioxide tax. The Oscar-winning actress (unlike Al Gore, she at least deserved that gong) has appeared in a new commercial designed to make us agree to impose such a disasterous tax on ourselves. There’s Michael Caton telling us that its going to help clean up our air (that’s just about ruined The Castle for me; if that were possible). Once again we have carbon dioxide depicted as a black, thick, smoggy substance. A blatant lie.

What’s gotten people angry though is that someone as well off a Blanchett is telling us to accept a massive cost of living hike. It is insulting to the average Australian.

It is a naive assumption that she holds which is embraced by most people who worry about global warming. That is that “action”, no matter what it is, will make a difference. In reality, it is all pain and no gain, even if one believes in the greenhouse crisis. The carbon dioxide tax is simply unjustifiable from any rational perpsective. Say no Australia.


About Climate Nonconformist

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?
