It is truly a sad commentary on the state of Western civilisation when the world stands still to hear the doomsday predictions of a child not yet old enough to be trusted to vote. It demonstrates that climate change is no longer about science but the destruction of free market economics and the rise of collective socialism.
The whole climate change hypothesis is a mad, nightmarish cult in which an infantile view of the world, peddling ludicrous theories of imminent apocalypse which owe more to medieval millenarian sects than modern science, is being treated as unchallengeable wisdom by a lazy and credulous adult world that has stopped asking rational questions.
Speculative technology is no substitute for an established and lucrative industry that is being destroyed by government policy. Like the oil industry, the justification for their attack on farmers is the Prime Minister's fixation with being seen as a global leader in climate change.
Climate Change Minister James Shaw has now admitted that proper research did not underpin the harsh emissions targets in the Zero Carbon Bill. He says he simply plucked the 47 percent reduction in methane out of a UN report and is now prepared to change it.
The chill winds of the economic slowdown that Winston Peters predicted when he announced the new Government are here. His Government is putting New Zealand onto the path to failure.
Alarmism over climate change, has now reached dangerous proportions. People are literally afraid for their lives. Many do not realise that they are victims of a hyped-up political propaganda campaign.
The warmers should be careful what they wish for. Already there is evidence that in adopting the idea of man-made global warming lives are being put at risk. Teenagers are being told that they have no future.
The Prime Minister’s plan is to put so much pressure on farmers that she will drive them out of business – just as occurred in the coal industry, and oil and gas. So exactly how is she doing this? Here are five ways.
A Bill that is currently in front of Parliament will have serious implications for the future of our economy if passed in its present form. Unfortunately few understand the magnitude of what is being proposed and to date it has attracted little attention.
The government's Zero Carbon Bill will lead to an increase in global emissions, higher electricity prices and do serious damage to many of our efficient and productive industries. The poor will suffer most.
