    Default Global Warming - Carbon Tax

    Could somebody with a direct line to Key & Co get him to remove his "Global Warming Carbon Tax" before we all freeze to death?

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    I take no responsibility for the accuracy of any media links I quote.

    Ah but remember it isn't global warming anymore - it's "climate change". This explains the contradiction apparently.

    I'll bet those Greenpeace activists don't have the balls to jump in support of their protest.....

    You need to look at temp trends over the last 500 years , not look at some random blip in the average.
    Warmoligists will however get caught tweeking the figures to suit their theories.
    Deniers will seem to think that 1000+ years of cutting down 90% of the earths trees will have no effect on CO2 & climate

    Sea temp rise is the one that we really need to look at . I dont think we have any data on that from 1000 years ago :-)

    Yeah unless you swim to work with a thermometer and have been recording the results for the last few decades you have no usable data on climate change. On the other hand is there any proof at all that carbon tax is in any way effective? It leaves countries and corporations trading carbon emissions like a commodity when what they should all be doing is just working to reduce it as much as possible.

    Climate Change is certain, it has always happened and will continue to do so. What is not certain is the extent of human influence on the climate and our ability to do anything about it, that's where the real arguments are.

    Using a few frosty mornings as evidence against climate change is like using your back yard as evidence the earth is flat.

    Why limit it to 500 years? How about the lifespan of the planet? It periodically warms and cools.

    We should worry more about the effects we have in other ways....planet won't care, but ourselves as a species might.

    Lets make it 15,000,000 years, seeing they have just un-earthed human teeth just out of Te Aviv in Israel, not much movement in earth density over that period of time.

    Like Al GORE they are just trying to make money out of a phase.
