Australia to pay $25b to foreigners so we get better weather, by Joanne Nova.
In a nutshell, if the Labor Party wins (and that’s looking likely) Australia will pay $25b, maybe $35b, to foreigners for paper certificates that claim to have reduced a tiny amount of beneficial gas.
This is hard earned money leaving the country so that our foreign minister and PM can sit at better tables at UN Gala Dinners.
The paper certificates have a long history of fraud, are often based on good intentions of Chinese or Russian businessman saying they will put out more CO2 but can stop if we pay up.
It’s so stupid sometimes people even create “pollution” just to get paid to clean it up. They’re unauditable, worthless, and based on scientificy assertions that are also unaudited and worthless. It’s a double layered scam.
Welcome to pagan Australia, obedient fool serf for namecalling rulers of Europe, giant banks, and multinational corporations.
Brilliant. At least when Whitlam wasted spent huge sums of money, we got something vaguely useful.
