Silent death of a green scheme

The Age is in mourning.

“THE Baillieu government has been accused of scrapping a $106 million program designed to help communities cut greenhouse gas emissions, prompting fresh claims it is walking away from climate change commitments.”

God, I hope so.

“Groups applying for grants from a Climate Communities Fund have been told the program has closed and their applications will not be assessed.”

“It is believed the government plans to re-direct the funding to waste and recycling programs.”

Good. Some worthwhile environmental initiatives.

“Andrew Herington, a former Labor adviser who worked on the Climate Change Act, said if the Baillieu government was rejecting the state’s climate white paper and legislation it should say so publicly.”

I agree with this warmist. Come on Ted, be proud of knocking off this waste of taxpayers money.

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?
