The Aussies Lead The Way _ God Bless Them

In a world gone mad with socialism to one degree or another, the Australians threw off their yoke of socialist serfdom in the last elections and brought back the conservatives. Weasel Zippers reports that the new conservative government is taking action:

Via The Australian:

FEDERAL cabinet has ruled that Australia will not sign up to any new contributions, taxes or charges at this week’s global summit on climate change, in a significant toughening of its stance as it plans to move within days to repeal the carbon tax.

Cabinet ministers have decided to reject any measures of “socialism masquerading as environmentalism” after meeting last week to consider a submission on the position the government would take to the Warsaw conference.

A further document was produced after the meeting that outlines the government’s position.

The Australian has seen part of the document and it declares that, while Australia will remain “a good international citizen” and remains “committed to achieving the 5 per cent reduction” by 2020 of the 2000 levels of emissions, it will not sign up to any new agreement that involves spending money or levying taxes.

This rules out Australia playing any role in a wealth transfer from rich countries to developing nations to pay them to decrease their carbon emissions.

The Aussies are showing us the way. If there is enough individualism left in America, we will follow suit and throw the liberal bums out in the next two election cycles. I say two elections cycles because after the 2010 mid-terms, I no longer trust them to signal the true mood of the country. But, let us hope that Australia’s actions are an indication that the pendulum is beginning to swing back to the right.

Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

  1. Let us hope!! And pray, too! The only way the pendulum can swing further left is a putsch with the installation of a government-for-life. I don’t see that happening just because the greedy Clintons want another turn at the public trough and they would wage war if the current regime tried it. But I don’t know how blocked up the political system is in this country — how many laws and regulations have been issued over the past five years that make it hard to have a free and fair election? Too many. Perhaps if we could get a tough voter ID law passed, it would prevent the illegals from voting, along with the dead and the mentally incapacitated.

    1. I can’t say I’m very optimistic, Norma. We have allowed our politicians to make such a mess ot things for the last fifty years, it is no longer fixable. Depending on who we elect going forward, things will get worsse slower or faster, in my opinion.

  2. If this gets to our MSM the Aussies will be branded as anti- environmental anti-women racist homophobes out of touch with the brave new world. If those conservatives can show that they can hold onto and expand their power this may serve as a template for the cowards on the right in this country. To thine own self be true.

  3. Tony Abbott was recently elected PM of Australia. One main reason was he promised to dismantle Australia’s expensive carbon tax, which he did as his first act as PM.

    This quote from the article sums it up…
    “Abolishing the carbon tax will reduce the average household’s cost of living by $550 a year.”

    What is happening in Australia has less to do with politics than it does with economics. Bottom line, climate change taxes are overbearing and simply cost the average Australian to much. That is why they voted Abbott in.

    The UN Warsaw Conference (COPA)- which began today – is where the UN seeks to pass legally binding implementation of the Kyoto agreement. Once the costs involved in climate change started mounting countries began dropping out. First Canada, then Japan.

    Australia might be next. Abbott’s rejection of new Warsaw agreements just as the conference is getting started is a prelude to that likely possibility.

      1. Agreed about said separation… where money is involved there is always politics.

        Imho, UNFCCC and Obama green energy policy bring more economic damage on average citizens then the swath of economic destruction wrought by Obamacare on the U.S. healthcare system.

  4. Sadly, I’m not sure their much-improved and more conservative stance on climate transfers to the governing of their country because they’ve gone loony socialist there, but maybe there’s hope!

  5. I’ve been keeping up with this story for a long time. The Aussie’s had even passed a carbon tax, and the environmentalists were running the country to the detriment of the energy industry, agriculture, and just anything that made sense. Jo Nova, Australian climate sketpic, has a great blog if you want to keep up with our upside down brothers and sisters. She does good stuff.
