Taking away the Climate Change gravy train

In a statement Mr Hunt confirmed that he had dissolved the commission. "As part of the Coalition’s plans to streamline government processes and avoid duplication of services, the commission’s function to provide independent advice and analysis on climate change will be continued by the Department of the Environment," he said. "I would like to recognise the efforts of the Climate Commission in providing information on climate change to the Australian public and thank all the commissioners for their work. "This decision will save the budget $580,000 in 2013-14 and an annual funding of up to $1.6 million in future years." A spokeswoman for Mr Hunt said he had also  approved a brief to begin drafting  a bill to repeal the separate Climate Change Authority as part of the Coalition’s broader efforts to remove the carbon price.

If ever you wanted to define a partisan quango the climate commission would be the perfect exemplar populated only by the most devout followers of the apocalyptic green faith it has not once told us anything of value that was not already widely circulated in the media. when it comes to feather bedding this is one of the worst examples you can conceive of. That is the thing though that the Luvvies who read the Age et al do not seem able to get their heads around, because even if you believe in anthropomorphic climate change you can still applaud this saving of money spent on an organisation that does absolutely NOTHING to solve the problem (assuming that the problem is real).

While it is fair enough to feel some empathy for the followers of the faith (like our sometimes commentator Damian Doyle AKA “toaf”) who will now be searching for alternative employment  its hard for me not to think that maybe if they had been doing something more socially useful in the first place then they would not now be putting Centerlink on their speed dial list.

Cheers Comrades

    Iain, my job is not impacted by these changes. Please correct your post. And if you’re going to continue the online stalking that I thought you’d grown out of, please get your facts straight first.

    Your job may not have been “impacted by these changes” but you must realise that any position within previous regime’s “climate change” edifice is rather precarious at present to say the least.
    Finally giving you a mention because I know you work in part of the climate change bureaucracy can hardly be seen as anything other than benign and there is no need for me to make any correction to my post because you yourself have clarified the point.

    You really have to love that Tim Flannery, I mean his so called FACTS are twisted like a stick of liquorice. Yesterday on the ABC, yes his and Labor’s ABC, when making a whole lot of claims in relation to his demise and the Climate commissions demise two things stood out like dogs Bowls;
    1: He doesn’t believe that the International report that is currently being released about temperatures and climate change which show a different picture to what he claims are right. Hello Mr Flannery, this has been compiled by the same people who you have always quoted as being Gods and that their word was the gospel.

    2: This was a classic of opportunism. He said how the bushfire season had started early with the fires around Sydney last week. What a looney. One of the firers was started by an arsonist, FACT, as per the fire brigade and police. Two other fires were in FACT so called controlled burn-offs by the authorities which jumped containment lines.

    And he wonders why people take what he has to say with a grain of salt?

    Good on the LNP for saving us $180,000 for his part-time job. (good work if you can get it at that rate), and the cost of all the other commissioners.

    Well said Iain, but we have another pro tax warmie has arrived on our shores. David Suzuki has arrived on our shores, the ABC are all over him like a rash. They’ve given him Q&A all to himself this monday night.

  5. GD says:

    David Suzuki has arrived on our shores, the ABC are all over him like a rash. They’ve given him Q&A all to himself this monday night.

    This is another reason why Tony Abbott should get stuck into the ABC.

    While their drama and documentary programs are of high quality, their political commentary, tax-payer funded, programs are blatantly left leaning.

    Surely the ABC, ‘our’ ABC could have invited someone from the other side of the AGW debate to sit on the panel across from global warming propagandist Suzuki?

    Unfortunately, the taxpayer funded ABC doesn’t see its role as being balanced, instead they have an agenda to push and with the election of Tony Abbott as PM, they blatantly devote an hour of ABC coverage to a leftist warmist who is not far behind Flannery with his dud predictions.

    It’s time for a clean-out of the rabid leftist control of political commentary on the tax-payer funded ABC.

  6. Ray Dixon says:

    It must be a real fun world where you live, GD. Your bitternes against the harmless ABC suggests you just don’t enjoy life a lot.

  7. Ray Dixon says:

    Tony Abbott should get stuck into the ABC.

    While their drama and documentary programs are of high quality, their political commentary, tax-payer funded, programs are blatantly left leaning.

    So let’s get this straight, GD. You’ve constantly bashed Labor for the past 3 years for what you call its attempts to “censor” right-leaning News Ltd bias, but now you advocate Tony Abbott “get stuck into the ABC” for what you perceive as “left leaning” bias?

    Don’t you see the contradiction in that?

  8. Stuart.W says:

    Good post James.
    You think labor would drop the Warming scam, even their own rusted on supporters are seeing through it. Shorten and Albanese however have vowed to reintroduce it should they get the chance. There leadership contest is like two bald men arguing over a comb. While the Labor/Green alliance goes to any election promising a useless costly tax, that achieves nothing it will never be re-elected, it will only crumble further.

  9. Damian says:

    Iain, I am not “searching for alternative employment” and your suggestions about me are false. But you never change, so there’ll be no withdrawal, correction, or apology. You never change. This is why most people have decided you’re a troll who deserves nothing except to be ignored. I wasted my time even commenting.

  10. Iain Hall says:

    Damian
    According to your public linked-in page you work in the part of the bureaucracy that is in the firing line with the change of government and a very big down sizing of spending on “climate change” which is the only reason apart from a little shardenfraude that you were mentioned as an aside in my post, the post is not about you its about my delight that the government has moved so quickly to take down the very useless climate change edifice.

  11. Tony says:

    The quicker this useless piece of undeducated bureaucracracy gets the flick the better.
    How long, have we all put up with the nonsense propaganda campaign, that carbon levels were going to kill us all on this planet.
    Where was the attention, when it was required, focused towards the major polluters of this planet, i.e. China, Russia, Asia, India et al. Who the hell are they trying to fool here ?

    The planet at large can’t be all that concerned about the damage being caused ffs ?
    The technology has been around for years, to replace the petrol driven engine, as well as the total replacement of an alternative to oil that is the major cause of the planet’s troubles ? They won’t do that, as currently, there is no financial profit in it ?
    Add to that, we know the reasons as to the massive increase in co2 ffs. I have seen it on these, and similar pages for a couple of years. Stop raping the only resource that can literally cure the co2 problem, our trees ? Not hard, and really the solution is that simple in reality. Don’t even have to be a thong wearing bloody greeny to see it either.

    I am no expert, but I would concentrate all efforts on China and the like, with their burgeoning population, lack of respect for their environments, (as well as everyone elses for that matter ?). and their hunger for massive mineral resources, to fuel their greed ? Don’t buy any of their products, until they clean up their act. Wouldn’t take long. The Chinese love their new beamers, and want the money to buy more of them. They will get the message pretty darned quickly.

    Until the planet, as a collective starts to ark up, and do something about that greed, then warmanistas, (example see above), are not only wasting their time, but all of ours as well, by their grandstanding and ego boosts, and their b/s theories as to how they are going to save us ?
    All they want is a part of the massive funding gravy train, and will do or say anything they can to get it. Doesn’t matter if the numbers don’t add up, or the science is dicky at best, never stopped them before has it ?

    Also enjoyed your link James.
    Not rocket science is it ?
    What have I been saying for the last couple of months or so about carbon ?
    It’s all b/s ! Wake up to, a minute of analysis is all that is required here.
    Common sense people, it is not difficult.

  12. GD says:

    now you advocate Tony Abbott “get stuck into the ABC” for what you perceive as “left leaning” bias? Don’t you see the contradiction in that?

    Well, no I don’t Ray. News Ltd and other private media organisations such as the extreme left leaning Fairfax are allowed to present their views on the political situation as they see fit. That’s free speech. Ignorantly, Labor, goaded by Conroy’s insistence, wanted to appoint a ‘government regulator’ to determine this content of public media.

    Thankfully that didn’t see the light of day.

    On the other hand, the ABC is a publicly funded organisation that has a charter to provide a balanced political commentary to its free to air viewers. It is failing dismally.

    The leftist bias on the ABC is glaring. Only rusted on leftists could possibly view the ABC’s political commentary as being anywhere near balanced or mainstream.

    The fact that taxpayers are funding such a one-sided political discussion is clearly at odds with the ABC charter.

    There is not one conservative presenter on the ABC. All news and current affairs programs are presented by left-wing acolytes.

    That’s why Tony Abbott should ‘get stuck into the ABC’, because it is failing in its charter.

  13. Richard Ryan says:

    Climate change is just a myth,like Andrew Bolt’s ” stolen generation myth” snigger, snigger.

  14. Richard Ryan says:

    GD—-LISTENING to your daily propaganda, I would like to get stuck into to you, and that is a fact. I would show you what “rusted on” means. I bet you would be a proper f%ck wit at a Aussie bar-be-cue- I can hear the thud, of a left hook, on your buff head. I love the sound of a left-hook on a rightard’s head,

  15. Ray Dixon says:

    That’s ridiculous, GD. The ABC doesn’t editorialise. Nor does it express political opinion, unlike the private media. You just perceive bias because they don’t have hard line right wingers like Andrew Bolt on. Oh wait, they used to have him on Insiders. And now they have Piers Ackmerman, who certainly isn’t “left-leaning”. Come on, GD, give us an example (a clear and unequivocal one) of the ABC expressing political bias.

  16. Richard Ryan says:

    Ray Dixon, don’t argue with an idiot—–it is just trying to bring you down to it’s level.. Ray when Iain gets the iou that I mailed to him, can you get him to post the postcard on his blog, it is dedicated to GD.

  17. James says:

    Richard I don’t think it’s very nice that you have called your alto ego Ray and Ídiot’.

    Richard, nobody could go as low as Ray, once again you are expecting the impossible.

    Richard, you are of course aware that ‘IOU’s” are a legal document and have a pay by date normally of 30 days, unless otherwise stated on the original document.

    Please to read where you are now becoming dedicated to GD, that’s a step in the right direction for you.
