Title:
– Some ‘Carbon-Tax’ reality –
– The World is not listening to the real facts –
| Author: EYE-BALL Opinion | 3rd Dec 2012 |
The Government v Opposition’s continued debate on the ‘Carbon-Tax’ gives rise to the electorate turn-off.  Someone once said to sell a particular point of view, one should say it with pictures.  To that end a friend sent an e-mail with the following pictures and text – his name is Colin S – and I thought it warranted a share.

THE FACTS

  • China has 19% of the world’s population,
  • It consumes 53% of the world’s cement,
  • 48% of the world’s iron ore,
  • 47% of the world’s coal, … and the majority of just about every other major commodity.
  • In 2010, China produced 11 times more steel than the United States.
  • New World Record: China made and sold 18 million vehicles in 2010.
  • There are more pigs in China than in the next 43 pork producing nations combined.
  • China currently has the world’s fastest train and the world’s largest high-speed rail network.
  • China is currently the number one producer in the world of wind and solar power.  But don’t use it themselves.
  • They manufacture 80% of the world’s solar panels,
  • They install less than 5% and build a new coal fired power station every week.
  • In 1 year they turn on more new coal powered electricity than Australia ‘s total output.
  • China currently controls more than 90% of the total global supply of rare earth elements.
  • In the past 15 years, China has moved from 14th place to 2nd place in the world in published scientific research articles.
  • China now possesses the fastest supercomputer on the entire globe.
  • At the end of March 2011, China accumulated US$3.04 trillion in foreign currency reserves – the largest stockpile on the entire globe.
  • Chinese consume 50,000 cigarettes every second …
  • They are already the largest carbon dioxide emitter and their output will rise 70% by 2020 !
  • And these little Vegemites tell us all that we are saving the planet …
  • … with the help … err … demands of these people …

Does that make it any clearer … hope so …

The World is a competitive place and Australia is competing with the rest of the world and we are losing badly. Labour costs are at the heart of the problem. Can you see Australian’s willingly take a pay cut for the Nation to become more competitive … and therein is the problem.

    Interesting to see exactly how much of Australian taxpayers money Rudd and Gillard have given them in grants as a “third world developing nation” since”little Gracie” asked Rudd to “save the planet” ffrom burning up, in the ice and snow at Copenhagen a few years ago, helped of course by the 120 or so hangers on we also funded for the annual luxury trip of the CAGW mythers!

    Doha this year, (been on for a week in case you haven’t heard), hence the recent ramp up of the old scares by the same suspects at the ABC, CSIRO, BoM and elsewhere, and of course the good old quarterly doomsday essay by ‘there’ll be endless drought, no more rain and if there is it won’t run off ’cause the ground will be so hot and Brisbane will be out of water’ lavishly taxpayer-funded alarmist Professor Flim Flammery, and if you don’t believe me ask David Karoly!! Our Earth Goddess Gaia will get you in the end you unbelievers!

    In statistics observations of 140 to 150 annual rainfall or temperature observations are insignificant. Hence we need to go to tree ring maybe 300 years or sedimentary or ice core observations to attempt to get to significant data.

    That does not mean we shouldn’t be considering emissions. Technology is the only real path to lifting living standards.

    I love the above collection of facts. 50,000 cigarettes per second. It is really good info!
