Yes indeed, global jet setter and flim-flam man extraordinaire Al (I invented the Internet) Gore is "disappointed" that Australia has ditched the carbonazi money scheme he's so desperate to push.

Looks to me the Aussies are the first ones to show a lick of sense over this topic. Hopefully other nations will take a page from Australia and "Just say no" to the massive carbon swindle being perpetrated on them.

Gore disappointed carbon tax axed


Former US vice-president and climate change action campaigner Al Gore has criticized Australia's decision to scrap the carbon tax.

He said parliament's decision on Thursday was a disappointing step for a country that continued to experience worsening consequences of global warming.

'Australia is falling behind other major industrialized nations in the growing global effort to reduce carbon emissions,' Mr Gore said in a statement on Friday.

Well Al maybe if you parked that jet you fly around in that will help offset some of the global warming eh?

Here's what's really the most important part of this whole thing.

Emission accomplished as carbon tax ditched


Tony Abbott has boldly declared his government ''conservationist'' while delivering the biggest win of his prime ministership with the successful repeal of the carbon tax.

It came after a marathon 55-hour debate in which only Labor and the Greens voted to keep the impost alive.

The Coalition and the crossbench, including the Palmer United Party, voted together to dump the controversial tax, which has wreaked havoc in Australian politics and been instrumental in the demise of some of the nation's most senior leaders, including Malcolm Turnbull, Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard.

Judging from the article title apparently the newspaper owners disapprove but hey you can't please everybody. All I have to say is "Go Australia!" Well done.

The aussies are the dirtiest energy users. Mainly coal. They dont have much clean energy at all compared to other western nations. They have crap loads of coal and are using it.

They do need to do something but I agree, green taxes are a scam. Al Gore is a dick. If people llisten to these people the planet will never get cleaned up. We will be taxed, the planet will still die.

As soon as any Govt starts planting trees, stopping fracking and actively start campaigning to stop deforestation in the amazon....I will not believe a word they tell us about climate change and CO2. People have too much trust in govts. and universities. We know from experience that as far as the climate is concerned...they lie...a lot. Which means the real issues will continue.

These people dont mention the heavy metals pumped into the air every day by mega corporations, oil spils etc. This is what is causing the main pollution....but if they blame CO2, they blame us, not them, which is a hell of a lot more in green taxes for them. And a hell of a lot more pollutants on an industrial scale the world over not getting addressed.

I don't understand the attacks on Al Gore who has stayed focused and continues to push for a cleaner world.

And he really was instrumental in making the internet available to everyone. www.ontheissues.org...

The downer mentality by some on this site is overwhelming.

Al gore is a corporate fool. He wants to tax the people and ignore the mega oil companies roles in the pollution. He doesnt practice what he preaches and he DID NOT invent the internet. That is ridiculous. He helped pass a few legislations in the US. Nowhere else. That is NOT inventing it like he quotes.

He is a manipulator and a liar.

I guess you think Bill Gates is saving the little africans with the vaccinations too?

Of course Al Gore is disappointed !!

One more place now that he and his bankers can't make any commissions off the CO2 hoax.

Read.

Blood And Gore: Making A Killing On Anti-Carbon Investment Hype


Al Gore could become world's first carbon billionaire


And remember Al Gore is on the board of Directors of Apple and has investments in computers.

So that means he's all in favor of the slave complex.

Lets assume for a moment that carbon emissions really are bad.

Why cant nations take steps to reduce these emissions without carbon taxes/credits?

I mean, do we really need more ways to enrich Wall Street and the Banksters?

The climate change flip flop. No more winters, no more summers... whatever!

Al is a total hypocrite.


But if Al Gore is the world's role model for ecology, the planet is doomed.

For someone who says the sky is falling, he does very little. He says he recycles and drives a hybrid. And he claims he uses renewable energy credits to offset the pollution he produces when using a private jet to promote his film. (In reality, Paramount Classics, the film's distributor, pays this.)

Public records reveal that as Gore lectures Americans on excessive consumption, he and his wife Tipper live in two properties: a 10,000-square-foot, 20-room, eight-bathroom home in Nashville, and a 4,000-square-foot home in Arlington, Va. (He also has a third home in Carthage, Tenn.) For someone rallying the planet to pursue a path of extreme personal sacrifice, Gore requires little from himself.
USAToday..

Just saying.

That's pretty much what Australia is doing. They're still are trying to meet lower emission goals. Just leaving out the carbon tax bit.

We do it clean down in Tasmania, wind farms and hydro damns, some of our power is even exported to the mainland via basslink.

so do not place blame on all of Australia are doing it clean where possible.

The problem is that while the carbon tax stops the construction of polluting companies and power stations in the Western world, it doesn't stop them from being constructed in places like India and China who are starting new coal fired power stations every week. So the planet gets polluted just the same, and workers in the developed world get put out of their jobs. The Greens love it because they think the environment is being "saved". The Labour lefties love it because we are transferring "wealth" to the developing world. They don't see that we are importing "poverty" to their own country in exchange.

Can't fix everything right now, so screw it! Then find someone to blame.

Hey! Let's blame those who are making the effort to improve the environment.

Love the twisted logic

Have you looked at Japan lately, perhaps Fukushima!

Now that is clean energy, isn't it?

So clean! But, it does not lead to a clean death!

BTW, a little research would have shown you that many Aussie power stations are already on, or earmarked to, run on Natural Gas from out huge reserves.

Im so glad that stupid carbon tax is gone the prices on everything went up when that came in it will be nice to see them drop again and my grocery bill go back to an acceptable price.. Who cares what Al Gore the scam artist thinks or how dissapointed he is, axing that tax is the best thing Abbott has done for this country ever, and probably the only good thing he will do.

Actually, we are one of the cleanest energy users on Earth.

Many of our coal fired power stations now use gas turbines, running on clean burning natural gas.

Coal burning is in for a resurgence, with new technologies to improve the burn, capture the carbon etc.

1/3 of Australia's Electricity needs now are provided by Hydro-electric, Wind power, and solar power.

Nearly ever second house in Australia, has solar panels on its roof, providing nearly 100% of the power and feeding back into the grid.

We have had environmental pollution and air pollution laws since the mid 1970s.

There are 20 million people in Australia, same number as Shanghai, in a country almost the size of the USA!!!

We have BILLIONS of trees, shrubs, grasses, providing Oxygen to this Planet, AND we have no active volcanoes (for about 10,000 years).

WE should charge the other country's an Oxygen tax, so you can pay us to save you.

Very well said! Also on the solar panels topic our government also tries to make it as possible as they can for people too afford them with government incentives and rebates, we are actually trying to bring clean energy in as much as we can, and i think more of that would help than carbon tax.

Thanks for the input. I'm glad to see this from folks who are actually effected by this. Now if we can only get some other countries on board. Obama has sold us out in the US and all I think that will come of it is the destruction of the coal industries. He's good at that though.. destroying things. Can we borrow Tony Abbott for a few years?

Ha ha, we don't want to pay for this carbonazi crap so we're not paying you guys either.
