Paris: at your peril Mr Morrison!

Paris: at your peril Mr Morrison!

PM Morrison must be aware that the Paris Agreement which he refuses to dump might be the single most important issue for his success in regaining lost Liberal voters. The agreement is so interwoven with UN ideology and its many green initiatives to which Australia has already given many millions for no good. The government says that Australia would be considered unreliable if it broke its promise to the UN. What a bloody lame excuse! Of course our politicians have never lied to the people who voted for them, have they? Our pollies had better start worrying about what Australian voters think of them—stuff the UN, we don’t vote for them.

A FEW weeks ago, in Bangkok, there was a six-day meeting of the world’s climate change bureaucrats to thrash out the details of a new rule book for the Paris Agreement.

Morrison must tear up Paris Agreement

In December, world leaders will all congregate in Poland for UN’s Climate Change Conference, COP24 as it’s known, and like Copenhagen and Paris that went before it, after their posturing speeches and group photograph, the politicians will ‘agree’ what’s already been agreed by these bureaucrats in Bangkok.

Or that was the plan.

But Bangkok went off the rails. Officially it was reported as ‘beset with tension’, that key issues were ‘stalemated’ and that the future of the Paris deal was ‘on the brink’. Central to this lack of consensus was a fight about the proposed rule book governing the implementation and monitoring of various Paris Agreement commitments. But really, the conflict was about the money.

Forget all the language about rising sea levels in the Pacific and saving polar bears, the real purpose of international climate change agreements is to move money from the developed world, rich countries like Australia and the US, to poor countries in the developing world. The Paris Agreement is not about the environment; it is about deindustrialising the West and imposing a ‘moral tax’ on nations that used fossil fuels to build wealth over the past two centuries and key in facilitating this is the new $100 billion global climate change fund.

At Bangkok, Australia and the US were accused of stalling negotiations on the fund because they demanded greater transparency for how their billions would be spent. Quite rightly, the growing scepticism of taxpayers in both our countries is forcing a rethink on money being given away, hand over fist, to these global entities for little or no environmental gain.

Like foreign aid, which I grow ever more concerned fails to reach the people who desperately need it, I fear much of the climate change millions are merely being used to prop up the budgets of poorer countries, under the guise of green religion politicking, hiding more systemic financial problems in their countries such as lack of governance and corruption.

But it gets worse, because this week, the climate change shame police came knocking on Australia’s door again. Despite our minuscule contribution of 1.3 per cent of global emissions, as a nation, we’re now told we’re expected to pony up some four billion dollars — that’s more than four thousand million of your money — as part of our promises at the Paris Conference in December 2015. Or rather Malcolm Turnbull’s commitments, remember him?

While it was the Abbott Government that first put Australia’s 26 per cent emissions reduction target on the table, it did so on the advice that we could achieve these reductions, without any policy change, and without any significant economic damage. It was also on the written understanding that the emissions reduction agreement would include all countries.

Three years on, we now know that even existing emissions reductions policy is putting power prices through the roof, sending jobs offshore, and risking blackouts when the wind doesn’t blow and the sun doesn’t shine. We now know, that the emissions commissars will soon turn their attention to culling our animal herds and putting a carbon tax on cars. What’s more — and this should be the clincher — we now know, that three of the four biggest emitters will make no commitments whatsoever, to reducing their emissions, leaving Australia in an even worse position than before.

Now, when circumstances change, smart people change their position. Tony Abbott has said that if we’d known then, what we know now, he’d never have agreed to a 26 per cent emissions reduction. Let’s never forget that it was Turnbull government who signed the Paris Agreement and then raced out and ratified it the day after Trump was elected knowing the US were out. So far, and without much conviction, Prime Minister Morrison has said we’re staying in — but that shouldn’t mean that we hand over even more money to global green bureaucrats.

To big note himself at the Paris conference, Mr Turnbull promised “up to a billion dollars” for this UN green climate fund that was supposed to total no less than one hundred billion dollars each and every year. Now, something called the World Resources Institute says this week that Australia should be the sixth biggest donor to this fund — behind just America, Britain, Japan, Germany and Canada — because of our wealth, and because of our historical contribution to carbon dioxide emissions — and what was initially supposed to be a one-off contribution, of billions, could even be converted to an annual tax at the December meeting in Poland.

I can appreciate that Prime Minister Morrison is reluctant to change an international commitment made by his predecessor. But that’s a weak reason in my book. After all, just the other day Labor agreed to support the TPP trade deal as it stands now but have already said they’ll change it if elected. So, if they can change international commitments made by another government, why can’t Morrison move here and be his own man?

It’s one thing to stick with Paris, and on that I disagree with the PM, but it’s another thing altogether to keep shovelling out good money after bad to a fund that we don’t control. Mr Morrison should send a clear signal that he’s in charge here, not the faceless global bureaucrats, by walking away from Turnbull’s promise to put a billion dollars in the fund and declare from here on in, ‘Australia comes first.’

************************************

And here’s why getting out of the Paris Agreement matters.

On Monday, the North Rockhampton Bowls Club shut its doors, the latest victims of the great climate change con.

As reported in their local paper, the club couldn’t afford AGL’s power costs to stay open. Since 2012, when the club’s annual bill was $67,793, electricity costs have almost doubled. Last year, they paid a whopping $100,267 and this year it’s estimated to be about $130,000.

Last year, the club was forced to lay off two permanent employees to try to cut costs and this week, another seven workers lost their jobs as it closed.

We say we care about older Australians, and we know that keeping active and socially connected is a key part of ageing well, so what do we expect the 600 or so members to do now? And this isn’t just Queensland — it is happening right across the country as charities and not-for-profits, as well as small businesses, can no longer cope with the unaffordable cost of power.

    NOT to continually repeat myself, I said in a email to Scott Morrison 11 days ago.

    “Scott Morrison
    Perhaps you are not smart at all.”

  • Roslyn 30/09/2018, 6:15 am

    To remain as PM in a working Government, Scott Morrison MUST pull out of this emissions scam and put Australians first. Quit the UN and redistributing our wealth and regain sovereignty. You will be remembered as a foolish PM if you continue with Paris Accord, it’s costly and ridiculous. STOP IT NOW

      Hear, hear!!

    The 26% carbon dioxide emissions target put on the table by the Abbott Government that had a cabinet dominated by Mansion, Jewellery and their Black Hand faction colleagues. The proposed target was announced via a cabinet media release after cabinet members agreed to the target.

    The Turnbull Government went to the Paris Conference ended December 2015 where a possible Agreement was discussed. The Turnbull Government signed the Paris Agreement in New York at UN HQ in April 2016. In November 2016 Minister Hunt returned to New York and ratified the Agreement/Treaty when Mansion heard that President Trump was going to withdraw the US from the Agreement.

    Following the Kyoto Agreement being signed by the Howard Government a number of initiatives targeting “greenhouse gas emissions” (note no mention of carbon at that time) that PM Howard said would not damage the economy and were practical to implement. As a result Australia was one of the few UN member nations that signed the Kyoto Agreement that achieved all the targets set.

    The RET was one initiative, a trial basis only of 3% of electricity supply from so called renewables that we now know as unreliables. The Gillard Labor Government raised it to 28% and began the rise of electricity pricing to world’s highest now. The Abbott Government attempted to abolish the RET but was blocked in the Senate, however it was agreed to lower the RET to 23% at that time.

    The writer has misquoted Tony Abbott. He said that if he had been PM at the time.

    Australia should be in lock step with President Donald Trump on his march against the excesses of the UN including man-made global warming caused by carbon dioxide hoax. And against the UN interfering in the internal affairs of member nations via UN organisations all demanding funding. And protect the sovereignty of nations.

    What really angers me is the history, the George Soros, Maurice Strong, Al Gore, the Clintons and other manipulators who have succeeded so far in this massive global fraud. And that Australians elected to represent us are cooperating. How dare they ignore the Australian Constitution and impose UN Treaties with no reference to us.

    • angry 30/09/2018, 8:34 am

      They are guilty of TREASON.

      The crime used to be punishable by DEATH!

      Still should be!

  • Aktosplatz 30/09/2018, 6:26 am

    I’ll go from another angle:-

    Scott Morrison is proud of his Christian Faith. (So am I, of mine).

    But unlike Scott Morrison, I am not proud of the fact his government is deliberately embarking on a policy (Paria) which is closing small businesses, sending people broke through rising power prices, inflicting hardship on the poor who cannot keep up with the rising cost of living, who go without heating or air conditioning, who sit in the dark at night in winter, and cannot afford quality food anymore.

    That never bothered Turnbull, but it should bother Scott Morrison.

    SHOULD!

    He should listen to what his Christian Faith originally taught him, which includes to stop robbing the poor to feed the rich (at the UN).

    So, how about it Mr Morrison?

    • luk1955 30/09/2018, 6:47 am

      Ha! With almost all Christians, faith goes out the window when money speaks. That’s why Hitler never had any trouble getting the Germans to carry out his orders, even though those orders conflicted with the religion of most of the German people. Like the Japs who blindly followed their emperor in violation of their religious beliefs. And how many people work for Redflex, that company that makes its living by depriving Australians of due process in the desire to help our governments steal money from people who have committed no harm. Politicians NEVER heed their faith. They live to function in the political system that functions by theft, bribery, fraud, violence, and deprivation of due process. Notice now that governments consider every interaction with the electorate to be a war. No mention of the word “peace” in their propaganda utterings.

    • Peter W 30/09/2018, 8:22 am

      However his faith also includes keeping the folk poor and desperate so as to give charity; it gives them a good feeling. In his case these poor sods will get Government charity via jumping through hoops to gain it.
      Same goes for foreign aid to “developing nations”. No wonder they’re still developing after decades and decades, like our own aboriginals. Charity never works.
      Do the right thing Morrison and drop the Paris crap!!

  • Honeybadger 30/09/2018, 6:56 am

    Kyoto, Paris, Bangkok, Morocco, yadda yadda yadda, call Australia unreliable who gives a stuff. I’m sure Trump does not have sleepless nights being called unreliable as he breathes some sense into the anthroprogenic global warming scam.

  • DT 30/09/2018, 7:14 am

    Around 2013/14 the Abbott Government was bragging that Australia had met all of the emissions (carbon dioxide) targets contained in the UN IPCC Kyoto Agreement and was one of few member nations that had.

    PM Abbott wanted to apply a “direct action plan” to continue the Howard Government implemented initiatives that had achieved the reduction.

    And then in September 2015 Abbott was replaced and no more mention of the Kyoto targeting success story.

  • Xword 30/09/2018, 7:14 am

    After the Wentworth election, Scomo will show his true mettle and by his actions forever shrug off the image of a pudding-faced lap dog. Water will also turn to wine and pigs will fly in formation over the eastern suburbs.

      And Christ will again “walk on water”!!

  • P Gosper 30/09/2018, 7:22 am

    Why are we paying twice to the underdeveloped countries? We pay Foreign Aid and Carbon Tax to the UN to dish out.

    Paris Agreement carbon dioxide emissions reduction?

    PURE ANTI HUMAN COMMUNIST EVIL !

  • Albert 30/09/2018, 9:01 am

    Looking back at who done what unto whom and when doesn’t pay the bills. A concerted effort by voters to rid us of any politician who has a propensity for feeding the criminal UN is what we should all be looking toward. Forget the past and concentrate on the future or we is doomed.

    • DT 30/09/2018, 10:16 am

      Yes Albert.

      Australia must support our ANZUS partner allies and close friends in the US, notably back President Donald Trump and his supporters to bring the UN down to basics and stop them interfering in the affairs of member nations undermine sovereignty.

      And ignore the Paris Agreement and the ridiculous demand for reduction of essential for life on Earth carbon dioxide based on natural Earth Cycles of change.

      Globalism, socialism, communism are seriously bad for people who like the freedom of democracy, albeit adversely impacted upon by crooked politicians.

  • Graham Richards 30/09/2018, 10:53 am

    We are now more disillusioned than ever. We have been referring to Morrison as
    Turnbull # 2.
    Wrong, wrong, wrong. We now have Morrison performing as Turnbull X 2.
    This Team Morrison is giving our money away 2 X faster than Turnbull, and is planning to give away more at the Poland Climate Conference!
    The Paris Accord noose is being drawn tighter & tighter around our throats and there is no end in sight. Morrison you & your Government are doomed. Bloody treacherous mob!

  • Clarion Call 30/09/2018, 11:01 am

    The best outcome for us and other perpetually conned countries is for the USA to pull out of the UN completely and so defund this corrupt organisation which is totally different in structure and objectives to the original concept of universal order. That would give others a reason to follow the lead and refuse to hand over billions to faceless and unelected socialists/communists pursuing an agenda to crush the west and all its values to ‘transform’ the world.

    When you look at it, both Morrison and Frydenberg have lied about the reason for the Paris commitments.

    They have brazenly lied, as did Turnbull, and as does Shorten.

    We shouldn’t vote for unprincipled liars.

    I won’t.

    • Graham Richards 30/09/2018, 5:31 pm

      We need 2,000,000 informal votes from both sides! ALP & Coalition. This is not a situation that either side can ignore. As a nation we need unity against this globalism!
