Why are we still paying?
With the Fine Gael / Labour government now annoucing that Carbon Tax will probably be increased in December 2011 budget is it not now time to revisted the whole "Humans are heating planet" nonsense in greater detail?
A few years ago you could not turn a TV or Radio without being bombarded with the phrase Man - Made Global Warming and its alter - ego Global Warming, but a few important things have happened recently that have almost silenced the "warmists" so much so that you be forgiving for thinking that the whole Global Warming debate was a figment of your imagination.
There was the Climate - Gate email scandal that exposed the manipulation (some might call it fraud) of data in favour of the argument that human activity was warming the planet, then the Amazon - Gate revelations that highlighted the same kind of manipulation in a similar direction. There was also the questioning of the models the IPPCC used to reach its conclusions on Global Warming.
If fact information supporting the view that humans were not the cause of the alleged warming was being revealed so fast, and from so many reputable sources that the Global Warming alarmist had to further downgrade Global Warming to its new title, Climate Change. Most people, even with the smallest knowledge of the climate, know that it is always changing, that why we have seasons. Then data correlating the Sun's activity in relation to climate added to the destruction of the Man - Made warming argument.
After this information was revealed the world started to open it eyes to the fact the the Sun was affecting the Earths climate because of sun spot activity and minute changes in the earth axis in relation to the Sun, but still the "warmists" denied that these events had anything to do with anything. We all know that when the Sun goes down it get cool and when it rises things warm up, this is basic common sense, and common knowledge. But, I am sorry to say, common sense is something that is in short supply within the Global Warming movement.
Carbon is one of the main building blocks of life, so interaction between humans and Carbon are totally unavoidable. This is one of the reasons why Carbon was picked. You could say that its the climate version of Osama Bin Laden.
Carbon Tax is also the 21st Century version of a Window Tax, and if people don't start to stand up to the government on this issue. then they will be crushed under a weight of a Tax that will increase so much that it will destroy the basic living standards of the people of Ireland and the Globe.
Add to all this the fact that Ireland are the only country in Europe that has imposed a carbon tax on its population. The reason why this is that the rest of europe did swallow the lies in the same manner the people of Ireland did.
So in light of all the afore mentioned the questioned is. Why are we still paying?.
Everybody needs to stop watching silly TV shows and start watching closely, and questioning, every step the our so - called government make.
People have power, but they need to combine their efforts and resources to counter what is happening.
