Australia is about to enter campaign for national election later this year.
Two main choices – ALP and Lib/Nat coalition. Both leaders Sorten (ALP) and Turnbull (Lib/Nats) are captured by the CAGW scam and wish an ETS or other form of Carbon Tax scheme/scam, though they deny for political purposes, as the ‘Carbon Tax’ has proven to be election poison in the past. (e.g. Julia Gillard (ALP) “there will be no carbon tax under the Government I lead” – Lie)

From France24.com H/T Alan Poirier.
The trial of 12 people accused of involvement in a multi-billion euro carbon-trading fraud opened in Paris on Monday, in a case that has been described by French authorities as “the heist of a century”.
Shady deals, offshore accounts, money laundering… The trial has all the hallmarks of a crime thriller and comes nearly seven years after French authorities cracked down on a carbon-trading scheme that cost the European Union €5 billion – including €1.6 billion in France – according to Europol.
The case dates back to October 2008, around the same time the European Commission introduced phase two of its EU emissions trading system (EU ETS), which was designed to combat climate change by reducing greenhouse gases.

Never tire of Driessens work. And this post no exception.
By Paul Homewood
An intriguing look into the inner workings of environmental journalism by Paul Driessen:
Have you ever wondered how the LA Times, Associated Press, Weather Channel and your local media always seem to present similar one-sided stories on climate change, fossil fuels, renewable energy and other environmental issues? How their assertions become “common knowledge,” like the following?
Global temperatures are the hottest ever recorded. Melting ice caps are raising seas to dangerous levels. Hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and droughts have never been more frequent or destructive. Planet Earth is at a tipping point because of carbon dioxide emissions. Fracking is poisoning our air, water and climate. 97% of scientists agree. A clean renewable energy future is just around the corner.
It’s as if a chain of command, carefully coordinated process or alliance of ideological compatriots was operating behind the scenes to propagate these fables. This time, conspiracy theorists…

Intermittent Unrealiables. Backed up 24/7 by cheap, efficeiint and realiable fossil fuel energy, for when the wind don’t blow and the sun goes to bed.
Astonishing how so many refuse to understand or believe this most basic reality of intermittent outcomes.
Attach “Green and clean” to the most insane green-energy project and the world and unlimited financial resources are at your infinite disposal. No questions asked.
The proof of failure is being rapidly felt at such great cost to the poorest in society.
So so wrong.
STT followers may wonder at our recent focus on Germany. The reason we pick on Deutschland is simply that – in making any point – it’s best done with examples. Readily identifiable examples. But that doesn’t mean the scenario in question is one worth following. Oh no.
There are plenty of bad examples, used as a warning to the foolhardy who might, through youthful inexperience or inherent stupidity, be trundling along the same pathway to disaster.
Germany, as a country that has spent more than €200 billion on its Energiewende and, thereby, sent its power prices through the roof and its meaningful industries packing, provides just such an example.
New York’s Wall Street Journal has run the ‘wind is free’ line long enough to tar it with the wind-cult brush. However, in this piece it appears to have finally woken up…
