The Carbon Sense Coalition today called for an end to all disruptive Green Stimulus packages.
The Chairman of “Carbon Sense”, Mr Viv Forbes, said that every targeted stimulus package hits the favoured industry like a hippo jumping into your bath tub.
“But when the hippo leaves there is no water left in the tub, and if the hippo runs riot and is shot, the smell is awful.
“Here’s a better procedure.
“Give every MP one million dollars in $5 notes. Tell them to drive around their electorate throwing bank notes out of the window.
“Some greenola will fall into every bath tub.
“But there will be no flash floods, no rampant hippos shot, no ministers lynched, no rogue operators, and no need for creative accounting, lobbying or red tape. “
Mr Forbes is Chairman of the Carbon Sense Coalition. "The Carbon Sense Coalition opposes the waste of resources, opposes pollution, and promotes the rational and sustainable use of carbon energy and carbon food."
Has everyone read “The Hockey Stick Illusion; Climategate and the Corruption of Science”?
I have just read it and strongly recommend it. It is a real eye-opener. The author does an excellent job of pulling together and explaining very clearly the whole ‘Hockey Stick’ shemozzle. Some of the most notable points I gained from it were:
1. The level of control of IPCC exerted by the activist scientists
2. Peer review and how it has been corrupted.
3. The activist role of scientific journals such as ‘Science’ and ‘Nature’ to promote belief in the “Hockey Stick” and beat off criticisms.
4. Distortion of data.
5. Cherry picking of data.
6. Refusal to release data and methodology.
7. And the politics, agenda and funding of activist web sites like RealClimate
Recommended reading for anyone with an open mind and interested in “Dangerous man-made global warming” and what we should do about it.
