Pollution, not climate

Our government hires about 40 scientists to produce “their” view of climate change. 

These scientists know where their paycheque comes from, so they make sure their boss receives the “news” they were hired for. 

The world’s climate has never been “normal,” it has always been in constant flux – changing. This is a fact. 

We think in hundreds of years, the climate has been here for millions of years and has always been in flux. 

Three hundred years ago, we experienced a minor ice age, and 10,000 years ago we had two-kilometre-thick ice in the northern part of the world. 

Our government scientists do not talk about this because it is not in the ”present” and thus cannot be taxed. 

Sure, the climate is changing, it always is. But, do you really think the carbon tax is going to alter this?  

Why the focus on climate change? This is the easy way out. Try focusing on pollution if you want to be popular. 

With all the chemical manufacturing going on, plastics and so on, we do not have a plan to deal with pollution of water, air and soil. Most of the public do not know what pollution is produced just to make white toilet paper for their rear end comfort. 

The focus is on the wrong end. Carbon tax is not the answer – curb pollution first.
