I was listening to Newstalk ZB yesterday and the issue of Emissions Trading came up.
A guy called 'Keith' had written in and I wondered if it was our good friend KG at Crusader Rabbit. who tonight notes how governments deliberately raise food and fuel prices to combat so-called climate change, while economies are in recession and people suffer.
Anyway, the letter pointed out that Dear Leader's emissions trading scheme would create many, many jobs.
Yes, there would be a need for all these consultants going around businesses advising and charging highly on how they could reduce their carbon footprint.
There would also be jobs for many bureaucrats to oversee that business were implementing carbon reduction policies, there would be site visits from officials to see an organisations's carbon output was what was claimed.
And would all these consultants and bureaucrats, monitoring teams add to New Zealand's producive wealth and output? Hell, no! They would be a burden, a dead weight for us all to support.
Anyway, Crusader Rabbit says it was not he who wrote the letter, but I am sure he will agree with its sentments.
Indeed, as 'Keith' noted, the Emissions Trading Scheme represents 'socialism' in how busineses will increasingly come under the control of the state and its agents.
And all for an emissions trading scheme, which as Whale Oil reported this morning, and we did at the weekend, that few people support, to combat a 'climate change' that also has few believers too.
But yes, let Dear Leader campaign on her ETS that will raise food and fuel prices, while the rest of us focus literally on bread and butter issues.
