Cut Climate Confab Costs

Cut Climate Confab Costs

The Carbon Sense Coalition today called on the Australian and New Zealand governments to boycott the UN Global Warming talkfest planned for Durban later this year.

The Chairman of "Carbon Sense", Mr Viv Forbes, said that there was nothing useful left to discuss, so tax payers should be spared the costs.

"There are only two legitimate topics to debate in Durban - the science of global warming or the politics of the Kyoto agreement.

"Government climate mercenaries tell us at every opportunity "The science of global warming is settled". They refuse to debate climate realists. Thus, according to them, there is no science to debate at Durban.

"The politics of Kyoto alarmism is equally settled. No one outside the Green Empire in UK, Europe and the Anzacs will renew Kyoto. "Developing economies in Africa, India and China are never going to agree to carbon taxes and rationing that damage the aspirations of their millions, many who still lack electricity. Others such as PNG, Indonesia and Brazil will participate only to the extent needed to rip off the gullible Green Empire by selling ephemeral "carbon credits" to them.

"Thus the Kyoto deal is dead and there is nothing there to discuss in Durban.

"Almost every western government is guilty of massive overspending. Australia and New Zealand should reduce government waste by sending NO ONE to the pointless party in Durban."
