FULL STEAM AHEAD ON AUSSIE PM GILLARD'S IRRATIONAL "CARBON" TAX

July 12, 2011: Propaganda intensifies in Australia's climate change war:

  • "Putting a price on carbon pollution" [sic], Australian government July 10, 2011 news release.
  • "Say Yes Australia", Australian government advertisement promoting carbon dioxide tax. See point by point critique of ad.
  • Watch brief, nonsensical, statement from Prime Minister Julia Gillard on the release of tax details.
  • Watch longer interview in which Gillard concludes, "We've had a long and difficult debate. Now, is the time to get this done. I announced the package today. I'll bring it to the parliament. We'll legislate it and it will start on the first of July of next year."
  • Read/watch main stream media reaction.
  • Read media critique of the government's optimistic price impacts.

Australian journalists Terry McCrann and
Andrew Bolt bemoan "national suicide"
being committed with multi-billion dollar
"carbon" tax. "We've gone mad, you know," concluded Bolt.
