By Viv Forbes;Chairman; Carbon Sense Coalition.
The Carbon Sense Coalition today accused the Australian and US governments of ignoring real pollution problems while conducting a vendetta against an innocent bystander, carbon dioxide.
The Chairman of “Carbon Sense” Mr Viv Forbes, said it was a sick joke that the Australian EPA calls carbon dioxide, the gas of life, a pollutant, while the US EPA has declared the same harmless gas a health hazard.
“The earth’s atmosphere contains 386 ppm of CO2, whereas human exhalation contains 40,000 ppm, over 100 times as much. These asinine laws have thus effectively decreed that a mother’s warm breath on her baby’s face is a toxin.
“And still these imbeciles are not laughed out of court.
“Meanwhile, Asia gasps in a brown cloud of real pollution like the smogs that smothered London and Pittsburgh in the 1950’s.
“The Asian smog is not caused by carbon dioxide.
“It comes from dirty combustion – uncontrolled peat and forest fires in Indonesia, open air cremations and cow dung cooking in India, smoky mosquito repelling fires in SE Asia, rubbish dump fires, dust and ash from dirty old boilers and plants, and poor people everywhere scrounging dung, sticks, cardboard, coal, rags, waste oil and anything that burns for cooking and heating.
“The London smog was cleared away with “coal by wire” – clean silent electric heating and lighting from distant steam generators.
“Anyone concerned about Asian air pollution would be encouraging the construction of clean reliable modern power stations to replace a myriad of dirty open fires and old boilers.
“Instead, fools try to ration and tax a life-supporting, non-polluting, invisible, will-o-the-wisp like carbon dioxide – fiddling while Asia burns.
“Maybe the people promoting the war on carbon dioxide should set a good example and cease exhaling”.
Viv Forbes is Chairman of the Carbon Sense Coalition which opposes waste of resources, opposes pollution, and promotes the rational and sustainable use of carbon energy and carbon food.

This is a particularly dangerous time for climate realists and for freedom in general. Most of the arguments supporting the cause of the climate alarmists have been discredited, and climategate has revealed deep flaws and deliberate malpractice in the scientific methods employed in arriving at those conclusions. There is no evidence whatsoever that government action will modify the climate in any way, nor is there likely to be.
While there may be some politicians who genuinely believe that reducing the miniscule proportion of CO2 produced here, of the miniscule proportion produced by man worldwide, of the miniscule proportion of CO2 in the atmosphere, will result in modifying the worlds cyclic changes in climate, these people are delusional.
Despite this Rudd and his cronies both here and abroad have stepped up their efforts to enact legislation, which has the strong appearance of wealth redistribution and increased state interference about it before their cause is completely destroyed.
This month is crucial. Rudd will reintroduce his deeply flawed and dangerous legislation soon. The alarmists see this as their last chance to enslave us all to their doomsday religion. Once this legislation is on the books, it will be very difficult to remove it.
