Why the Wuhan Flu is the final nail in the climate alarmists’ coffin, by Craig Kelly, MP. Part Two.
Coronavirus has awoken the public to the fact that the Chinese Communist Party have been playing us for mugs. While downplaying the virus, the CCP had their agents to buy up our stocks of personal protective equipment and airfreight it back to China. And while the CCP were assuring the world it was safe for international flights to continue out of Wuhan, they were shutting down internal domestic flights in China from Wuhan. …
It’s a valuable wake-up call that should make us realise that they’ve also been playing us for mugs over climate change.
Transferring wealth and manufacturing to China:
Under the Paris deal, China is free to expand its industry and increase its total emissions virtually as it wishes. In contrast, Western nations including Australia are forced to restrict their CO2 emissions, putting a higher cost on manufacturing goods in Australia vis-a-vis China. Industry moves out of Western nations and off to China, making China wealthier and us poorer — and ironically actually increasing global CO2 emissions.
Renewables act as a Chinese tax on us:
China now dominates the world in manufacturing solar panels and wind turbines. The billions in subsidies Australians give to the solar and wind industries is ultimately a tax on Australian consumers. We pay it through a hidden green tax in our electric bills, and we pay it through higher costs in everything we produce using electricity. However this ‘tax’ doesn’t flow into the Australian Treasury to help pay for our hospitals and schools. Instead, it goes to pay from importing solar panels and wind turbines from China and therefore ultimately ends up in the pockets on Chinese firms, many of them state-owned. …
Electric cars and batteries just make us more dependent on China:
Over the past decade, China has systematically set about creating and securing global supply lines of the strategic raw materials needed to create the lithium-ion batteries required for ‘storage’ and electric vehicles. So every time we further subsidize electric cars and ‘big batteries’ China is the winner at our expense.
