THE AUSTRALIAN POLITICAL LEVEL OF STUPIDITY

A useful measure of stupidity to compare the political parties in Australia is given by the level of support they give to RETS, or Renewable Energy Targets. This is in response to UN propaganda to reduce Greenhouse gas emissions and supposedly prevent the World from global warming. Federally, this is taken at 26% , the Labor Party has the goal of 50%, and The Greens 100%. How wonderful all this is, I don't think! The UN will be as pleased as punch to have the major Australia political parties following their bunkum. I suspect they actually believe their anti-carbon nonsense is true….which it isn't.
Our pollies have swallowed hook, line and sinker all the UN anti-carbon propaganda and, according to them, how it is necessary to reduce our Greenhouse gas emissions. CO2 is demonized and kept out of sight, preferably buried underground, as in CCS or "carbon capture and storage", which is a bizarre Green technology, and quite unnecessary.
Chemists will tell you the true story. Carbon is the most wonderful element in the Periodic Table. It forms more compounds than all the other elements put together. Carbon is an essential part of all life forms. You are made of millions of different complex carbon compounds, as are all animals and plants. CO2 is not a pollutant at all. Plants use CO2 to build their structures by photosynthesis and give out oxygen in the process. How stupid it is of the UN to try and fool us to limit CO2 emissions into the atmosphere when it is already at the low level of about 400 ppm.
Carbon in its crystalline form as diamond is the hardest substance known to man and has important uses as an abrasive, as well as being a prized gemstone. Also in the form of graphite, it is a soft mechanical lubricant. Its high melting point makes it useful for component parts of jet and rocket engines, whereas high strength carbon fibres have a myriad of uses, including the making of fishing rods. So pollies, don’t go knocking carbon.
For the future wellbeing of Australia, I suggest that the Ministry of Energy ignores all the false and mythical advice it gets from the UN and its IPCC. The RETS have to go for they are a nonsense. The Ministry requires a more reliable source of information. I recommend using the NIPCC, or Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change which is run by international scientists not overwhelmed by the UN anti-carbon propaganda.
