Environmentalism in a nutshell

A letter to the editor in The Australian:

I MUST be a bit silly because I can’t fathom all this green stuff.

We stop building dams and power stations and make water and electricity more expensive. We shut down the sustainable logging industry and import more timber. We truncate our irrigated agriculture and import more food.

Now it seems we must pay our fishers to stop fishing and import most of our fish.

This all results in a loss of productive taxpaying jobs that are replaced with unproductive taxpayer-funded jobs.

Then we import more people to share in our diminished productive capacity to produce the staples of life.

I think I will have to go back to one of these progressive schools and learn about this green stuff.

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?

    A nice summary of the “Green Dream”
    don’t let reality get in the way of the dream.
