Australia rejects carbon tax, then raises tax on fuels and income anyway....You deniers will grasp at any straw.

High earners will face a temporary 2% tax on income above 180,000 Australian dollars ($168,174), while motorists will be hurt by a plan to unfreeze, and subsequently raise, a fuel levy. http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/...864155102.html

And we have – as I said, we have 500 days to avoid climate chaos. And I know that President Obama and John Kerry himself are committed on this subject and I’m sure that with them, with a lot of other friends, we shall be able to reach success on this very important matter.

French Foreign Minister: '500 Days to Avoid Climate Chaos' | The Weekly Standard
Where have we heard this before; a whacked out, big government leftist politician, predicting doom and gloom, unless government steps in to impose itself on society, and regulate CO2 to save the planet from catastrophic man-made global warming... or else?

Daniel Patrick Moynihan Warned Nixon To Act On Global Warming, New Documents Show

There is widespread agreement that carbon dioxide content will rise 25 percent by the year 2000...

"This could increase the average temperature near the earth's surface by 7 degrees Fahrenheit," he wrote. "This in turn could raise the level of the sea by 10 feet. Goodbye New York. Goodbye Washington, for that matter."


...Moynihan wrote in a September 1969 memo.

The people may have rejected it, but the corrupt corporatist in government will go ahead with their agenda anyway; sounds like US politics.

I'm guessing you just looked at the title and thought 'well that will prove my point for sure'.
