Australia wakes up – “Socialism masquerading as environmentalism”

You may have not heard conservatives in Australia won elections in Oz three months ago on promises by soon-to-be Prime Minister Tony Abbot would start dismantling “green initiatives” that had resulted in job losses and a stagnant economy. The Liberal Party (pretty much conservative) has gotten to work.

From Erika Johnsen at Hot Air. The United Nations is holding another climate conference this week, and Australia is attending.

… Australia is already putting the word out that they have no intention of participating in whatever globalist, redistributive, and ostensibly “green” cockamamie scheme the UN comes up with next.

Johnsen quotes from 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.

And some fun at the expense of Australia’s unique continent shape.

    Whoa, sanity is returning to a federal government! I can just hear the knees of our liberals and democrats knocking in fear.
    Look for a lecture from Barry . . .

    Wasn’t it an Australian citizen the published the video regarding the measures taken and the cost of them resulting in a less than scientifically measurable reduction in the predicted temperature rise, provided you accept and use the science and numbers provided by proponents of man made climate change theory? Basically showing how detrimental these measures are to the economy, liberty, and standard of living while producing no measurable change in predicted outcomes.

    I am sure this will be misconstrued as “racist” somehow, but we used to call the greenies “watermelons”: green on the outside, red on the inside (before Tim Russert changed red from “commie” to “Republican” (did he have a choice?).
