Stop the ETS

Vote now in our poll, below

[SORRY, but the polling software has been mistreated somehow and until I have time to investigate, no longer functions. – Richard Treadgold, May 2019]

We’ve given you some assistance in joining our email campaign against the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS), and now we ask you to let us know how you vote on the matter.

What do you think? Should the ETS be stopped?

Lets dump at least 10 tons (tonnes for the metric heads) of dry ice (solid CO2) on the grounds of Parliament! It will evaporate of course and all go back into the atmosphere! See the Greens come running out with catch bags! Well the irony of course probably lost on the ludites is the dry ice is usually made from atmospheric CO2.

Right. Well, I don’t know what that might achieve. But you’re right that few people understand that carbon dioxide is constantly moving from one reservoir to another in a great cycle. Marvellous stuff!

How do we stop this madness?
Climate Cult Leader James Shaw:
“This is a big task and the transition will take decades. Climate change challenges us to make fundamental changes to our economy and we have a moral responsibility to do that in a way that brings people and communities along with us.”


I generally don’t try to spend too much time reading comments, as it tends to sap the will to live.

However, as others have pointed out on this blog before, there does seem a bit of a tidal wave of sceptical comments these days

So, if this is anything to go by, any drastic “climate action” that results in serious economic harm might see a push back in the ballot box.


Just because you’re bamboozled Richard does not mean that the rest of the world is. All bar one country has signed the Paris Agreement. We are not going to meet our commitments to that agreement if something does not happen very quickly. The government has two options, do something to reduce greenhouse gas emissions or pay billions of dollars to purchase overseas credits. The first option can stimulate investment in the economy if done properly. The second is a capital outflow paid for by taxpayers.


Re: the Paris Agreement – There’s a 3rd option that all the other countries seem to have adopted, pay lip service to the fraud and renege on the agreement with no consequence. It makes no difference, the Paris Agreement doesn’t achieve anything anyway.

Interesting to note that the one country that isn’t part of the Paris Agreement (USA) is the one country that seems to have lowered their carbon footprint due to fracking.


On the 60 second journey from my house to the supermarket on Saturday morning, I learned from RNZ that climate change and gender justice were related, and that Trump had “jumped the shark” on climate change

I stopped listening to RNZ some time ago when they all had the collective Trump Derangement Syndrome Meltdown (TDSM) and this was an accident that my radio was on

I didn’t know about gender justice and climate before.

How fascinating, and I am so glad we are going to get more of this thanks to increased funding

I’l just have to remove the radio from the car, however
