Logic Party: superior, cheaper, smarter alternative to ETS

The superior, cheaper, smarter alternative to an ETS

The Logic Party's zero-tax alternative to ‘End Environmental Destruction’ and instigate a world-class sustainable transition in NZ, allows us the choice to avoid any new emission trading scheme that will increase taxation.

Instead, The Logic Party Candidate for MP on the North Shore in Auckland, Miriam Clements , proposes New Zealand apply the international law ratified in NZ, directly against industrialists, in order to resolve the crime of Climate Change with financial and criminal liability falling with those most responsible for the contamination of our air, water, soil, oceans and health.

Having communicating this legislative choice to both major parties, Clements portfolio of work evidences that the Labour / National party preference to bill the taxpayer for the cost of industrial pollution, is an intentional misdirect to deflect liability from the industrialists and their interests, which these governments so clearly prioritize ahead of public interest.

Clements has led the intellectual revolution toward the holy grail of 'Climate Litigation' internationally, by identifying the only existing globally enforceable law that is capable of transitioning 120 nations to an entirely new sustainable, economic paradigm; with criminal penalties and potentially the court's seizure of entire fortunes earned as a result of industrial destruction, where awareness of the devastating consequence from industrialists pursuit of profit, can be evidenced.

Clements has now JOINED FORCES with one of the world's leading Criminal Barristers, Michael Mansfield QC, who has been a long term supporter of her legal arguments that pioneer this game changing interpretation of law to end environmental destruction. Together they are focused toward New Zealand establishing an 'International Criminal Court for Sustainability', that will lead the world in judicially enforced sustainable change; stating "We will work to establish a new epicentre for global sustainable justice, right here on Auckland's North Shore." The intent will be to establish an extension of the I.C.C., with the culture and judicial speed capable to preemptively protect some of the world's most vulnerable populations and ecosystems from ‘calculated’, foreseeable harm; with the courage to act on the court's existing power and responsibility to protect.
Her world-first legal interpretation of the Rome Statute, governed by the world's highest court, has placed Clements at the front-line of defending our international ecosystems for the past 10 years, from the Amazon Rainforest, to the Coral Reefs and the Arctic.

Miriam identified law that will render industrialists both financially and criminally liable for causing the majority of our environmental contamination while rewarded with excessive personal profit, at the cost of our health. Before she identified this law, no known international law existed capable to stop the destruction of human and environmental health by industrialists in pursuit of profit. In 2016 after years of establishing this unexpected argument through different case submissions; the court put all countries on notice that they will now prosecute the crime of Environmental Destruction.

Since the court accepted her Global Climate Change argument for review on May 3rd this year, Clements suggests the work has culminated to the point that it needs a country with the political will to champion, finance and prosecute several of her cases, which could establish a precedent that will change decision-making culture of investors across the world.

Interestingly, Clements world-leading argument against Climate Change, clearly demonstrates that Labour's new 'Climate' policy is naive to the cause and effect of the issue, versus the outcome of the agreement signed; which simply allows all the pollution to continue with a slightly higher cost of doing business and distributes the cost across the entire population as a multi-level tax. She suggests that Labour’s new climate policy announced last week to apply emission tax to all sectors within one year of government, evidences that Jacinda either seriously lacks any real understanding of the issue or she is a willing participant in a deliberate fraud to increase your taxes and strengthen control of the UN over a sovereign nation; without preventing or ending industrial destruction in any genuine way. This is a blind willingness to execute an international imperialist agenda that is also shared by National, Top and the Greens.

This compromise of New Zealanders is consistent with the ever evolving level of globalisation that the two major parties willingly install, while diminishing sovereign control over every aspect of our monetary, tax and trade system.

Clements also believes the Paris Agreement is a greater threat to national sovereignty than the TTP. She suggests that the political parties who currently aim to naively or insidiously re-engineer our society, currency, tax and trade toward an effective new global currency, are confused by the notion that 'carbon is a pollutant', when it is the gas that sustains all life. Yet all parties understand that this agreement does not prohibit industrialists from continuing their contamination of our environment for excessive profits; therefore, they knowingly shift the liability to charge taxpayers for the financial cost of industrialist destruction continuing.

New Zealand is currently committed to transfer 14 billions in taxes away from hard-working New Zealanders, over the next 10 years as signatories to the Paris Agreement. They will effectively pass along kiwi’s taxes to some the world's most corrupt nation-state leaders, in exchange for their unenforceable promises to pollute less, which is little more than bribery with no guaranteed outcome. It is especially ironic given the false carbon figures that nations are already submitted to the IPCC and many failed 'carbon as our new global currency' schemes that have come before.

This agreement will also transfer out billions in our taxes to finance the United Nations into genuine global power, based on increasing control over sovereign tax systems; that both Bill Gates and The Pope now currently promote. We should also not discount the current use of weather warfare, in the form of electromagnetic and EMP technologies and Haarp, that are capable of inflicting weather catastrophes that could 'in the future' trigger mass transfers of sovereign taxes to the UN, under the guise of humanitarian support for weather emergencies.

Instead, with a new I.C.C. extended to utilize existing law with a focus on 'preventative justice'; we may advance prosecutions against industrialists and financiers of environmental destruction or similar crimes; with intent to establish a global legal precedent that will eliminate the liability on taxpayers for the cost of the industrialists continuing to profit from thousands of new dirty resource extractions to all the government signatories to the Paris Agreement license, finance or arrange without limitation.

Environmental Destruction, Contamination, Pollution and Overconsumption are real but the Paris Agreement does nothing to end these threats to our water, air, soil, ocean and human health by dirty industry. Instead, it simply shifts responsibility from those causing the devastation, on to the global population who may or may not consume a little of it; while the industrialists have profited in billions from its extraction or sale, with a maximum penalty of a slightly higher cost of doing business, with free reign to continue destroying.
