The current Lab-Lib policy on energy and food is creating a man-made disaster and destroying Australia’s ability to cope with real natural disasters.
We are being forced to waste our savings and investment capital on futile political gestures such as the Ration-and-Tax Scheme Bill (the RATS Bill), on horrendously expensive and wasteful ideas like carbon capture and burial, and on costly and totally inadequate and unreliable energy sources such as solar and wind. And our policies on woody weeds, water conservation, carbon forests and bio-fuels are deviously destroying our ability to produce food.
An invading enemy could hardly do more damage to our ability to cope with future natural disasters than we are inflicting on ourselves.
All of this stupidity is based on two fallacies. Firstly, the RATS Bill relies on some totally unproven theory that man can control the climate. Secondly, the urgency is justified by doomsday global warming forecasts from computer models that have never produced a correct forecast for even two years ahead, let alone for the 50-100 years they are projecting.
