Just how much power over us do warmists want?

It’s increasingly clear that even more dangerous than the carbon dioxide tax are the measures taken by Left wing governments to crush resistance against it and force you to comply:

The Conservative government of John Howard introduced the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007 (the NGER Act). The act set up a compulsory national framework for the reporting and dissemination of information about greenhouse gas emissions, greenhouse gas projects, and energy use and production of corporations.
The objectives of the NGER Act, as stated in the legislation, are to:

  • inform government policy and the Australian public
  • assist Commonwealth, state and territory government programs and activities
  • avoid the duplication of similar reporting requirements in the states and territories
  • underpin the introduction of an emissions trading scheme

The first annual reporting period began on 1 July 2008. Corporations that meet an NGER threshold must report their:

  • greenhouse gas emissions
  • energy production
  • energy consumption
  • other information specified under NGER legislation


  1. That whole time I never knew Howard was a Communist.

  2. Now hang on a minute Clot. You can't say the warmist Howard was a conservative or of the Right.

    He was just a lone madman.
