“Climate Smart” is Yesterday’s Vision.
A statement by Viv Forbes, Chairman of the Carbon Sense Coalition.
The Carbon Sense Coalition today called on the Queensland Government to abandon their failed “Climate Smart” policy in favour of a new energy policy geared to the new realities of scientific re-assessment, economic austerity and international fragmentation.
In a formal submission to the Queensland government, the Carbon Sense Coalition said that the tsunami of climate alarmism had reached its zenith.
As it recedes, a new climate of scientific scepticism and economic austerity will sweep green extremism from the political landscape.
There will be no support for profligate spending on green baubles and beads, and no capacity for consumers or our basic industries to cope with the costs and dislocations of an Emissions Trading Scheme, especially as it becomes clear that nothing we can do will affect global temperatures.
The Queensland Government should forget party solidarity and instead stand up for the interests of the workers and consumers of tomorrow’s Queensland. These people want real industries producing useful goods and services and an end to speculative waste on feel-good causes like man-made global warming.
