Smash the Paris Shackles By Viv Forbes
A new lobby has called for Australia to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement. Calling itself “The Saltbush Club” the group includes top scientists and engineers covering every aspect of the global warming/energy debate, as well as representatives from small business, big business, farmers and consumers. It challenges the whole idea of a consensus on man-made global warming, condemns the unjustified demonization of CO2 and denounces the baseless war on coal. Australia’s push to meet the Paris carbon dioxide emission targets is leading to higher electricity prices and unreliable supply. People think the Paris Accord is just about commitments to lower CO2. It is really about transferring wealth via the sticky-fingered UN to the so-called Less Developed Countries. It’s about advancing centralised UN control of people’s lives on a global scale. We must reject the UN Agenda which is crippling western industry with high-cost unreliable electricity, in a futile attempt to control global climate.
