The next couple of months pose great dangers for the free democracies. The most powerful politicians, power seekers, speculators and religions of the world are openly or secretly conspiring to embrace the One-World Climate Religion as a front for their one world-government ambitions.

The 2007 film, “The Great Global Warming Swindle”:
A Progress Report
The Carbon Sense Coalition was founded seven years ago. Its 7 th birthday was on 12 th July, 2014. To see the historical formation documents go to: http://carbon-sense.com/carbon-sense/
No one asked or paid us to start this crusade, and we have never changed our policies as the result of external pressure or inducements. My personal motivation was hearing stupid or scheming politicians calling carbon dioxide a “pollutant”. I was also concerned by the increasingly anti-human, anti-industry ethos of the extreme Greens.
Since then we have fought quietly and persistently to explain and popularise the fallacies underlying the Mania of our Times. We have not been diverted to other causes, believing this is the biggest and most destructive political folly we have seen in a life-time of watching politicians. And the more we look, the more convinced we are of the cost and stupidity of the whole man-made global warming scam.
Our Main Focus
Our main problem is politics, not science. Politicians persevere in their climate/energy stupidities even though the science and the evidence no longer support them. They will only change when voters demand a change. Therefore our main focus is putting all aspects of the climate stupidity into short simple articles and spreading them into all media outlets and web sites available to us via letters, opinion pieces, media statements and newsletters. We also make submissions to public enquiries, and appear in person when invited.
We do not confine our activities to Australia – this is a world-wide problem requiring world-wide response.
We aim to get our message spread widely among ordinary voters and opinion makers. We welcome any website, newspaper, radio or TV station that will spread our message and we have had successes in all fields (except the Melbourne Age, The Sydney Morning Herald and the Canberra Times, which, I believe have never published a thing we have said.) I believe the ABC also falls into this category of one-eyed media. But even among the green media, someone in there reads our things before shredding them, and some points may take root, lying there in their brain like unexploded bombs.

Green Energy is Part of the Past, not Fuel for the Future
The growing failure of green energy in Europe should warn Australia to abandon bi-partisan policies dictating targets, mandates and subsidies for “green” energy.
I grew up at the end of the last green energy era – solar energy powered our growing crops and dried the washing, but it was weak in winter and ceased under clouds and at night; wind energy pumped water, but only when the wind blew; draft horses powered farm machinery, but they had to be fed whether they were working or not; wood gave us home heating and cooking, but it consumed energy to collect and chop it up; kids walked to school or rode bikes or ponies and ladies took the horse and sulky.
Our only help from carbon energy was kerosene for the kitchen lamp and coke used to smelt and forge the metals for farm tools and machinery.
We also practiced “sustainability” – we purchased little, and most of the farm produce was consumed on the farm by family, farm labourers and draft horses.
We were rescued from this life of sustained labour by carbon energy – a kerosene-powered tractor, a petrol-powered truck, and coal-powered electricity for lighting, heating, cooking, refrigeration, milking machines and pumps. The horses and farm labour were no longer needed and, for once, the farm produced a decent surplus of food for the growing cities.
Wind, solar, wood and muscle power are tools of the past and they work no better now than they did then. Forcing people to use these ancient technologies will just return us to laborious poverty on the farms and hunger in the cities.
Green energy should not be forced on consumers – those who want it should pay for it.
Green energy will eventually be abandoned, but the cost rises for each day’s delay.

The Carbon Sense Coalition today called on the Australian federal government and the opposition to abolish all renewable energy targets, certificates and subsidies.
The Chairman of Carbon Sense, Mr Viv Forbes, said that it was time for those who worship wind turbines to pay their full cost, and not force electricity consumers and tax payers to pay for a costly, unreliable and obsolete method of generating electricity.
“Wind power has been around since Don Quixote and it belongs in an industrial museum not in a modern economy.
“For too much of the time, the wind just sucks subsidies when it should be turning turbines.
“The 20% renewable energy target is unachievable without perpetual government mandates and subsidies and should be abolished.”

The Carbon Sense Coalition has created “The Gorbel Prize for Green Policies that have Inconvenient Outcomes”.
Copyright Steve Hunter http://stevehunterillustrations.com.au/political-cartoons/
The Chairman of Carbon Sense, Mr Viv Forbes, said that so many green policies that appear to have useful environmental goals fail to analyse properly the long-term unforeseen consequences.
Nowhere is this more apparent than in the world of green politics, where laws designed to help the environment are harming the environment. To publicise this stupidity, the Carbon Sense Coalition has created “The Gorbel Prize for Green Policies that have Inconvenient Outcomes”.
The winner of the Inaugural Gorbel Prize is the UK government whose green policies aim to make it uneconomic to burn coal. So the tax-payer funded Green Investment Bank has loaned £100 million to help convert the huge Drax coal-burning power station in Yorkshire to burning “sustainable biomass”. This is part of a huge finance package of one billion pounds to get the biomass green tick, earn renewable energy subsidies, and avoid the need to buy carbon credits.
Where do they plan to get the “sustainable biomass”? Each year 7.5 million tonnes of wood chips will be imported from North American forests to replace 4.5 Mt of coal.
The land required to produce wood at this rate is immense – about three million acres of forest per year.
Also, wood is less dense than coal with less energy per tonne and a greater volume per tonne. Thus a greater tonnage and a far greater volume of wood have to be handled to get the same energy. This huge volume of wood has to be harvested, hauled, chipped, dried, trucked, shipped and stored using more carbon fuels – all to produce more expensive electricity.
There is one real benefit from the scheme. When the whole process is considered, using wood will put more carbon dioxide back into the atmosphere than using coal. This will make the forests grow faster.
The same goofy green policies that have pushed Drax into burning forests also apply in Australia. Maybe wood chips from our carbon credit forests will soon fuel Yallourn or Hazelwood power stations?
Such green stupidity will take us back to the BC era (before coal) when forests and hillsides were stripped bare of trees to fuel stoves, heaters, boilers, charcoal makers and smelters.
We would all be better off if Drax burned coal, produced cheap electricity, saved those forests and, to satisfy green dogma, planted a token forest of new trees.

Australian Senate passes Carbon Tax Bill – Nov 8 2011.
Just a year ago, Australia joined the ranks of Carbon Fools by passing the Carbon Tax Bill (actually 18 separate bills called the “Clean Energy Bills”.) Now the same fools who introduced it are among the front rank of volunteers for carbon suicide by trumpeting their intention to sign Kyoto 2.
Barack Obama and Julia Gillard are founding members of the Carbon Fools Club, and have learned tricks from one another on how to betray the electorate without getting punished.
Before the election Gillard said “There will be no carbon tax under the government I lead”. Her Treasurer confirmed the promise. After the election, she changed her mind and introduced it. Now she is proceeding to bribe enough of the electorate into acceptance of the betrayal.
The Carbon Sense Coalition was formed in 2007 by a bunch of alarmed and annoyed senior citizens (mainly crusty old blokes and a few smart young things). Many had long experience in science, engineering, economics, industry and government.
We were alarmed at the stupidity of anyone classing carbon dioxide as a pollutant, and annoyed at the misuse of government funds to promote the foolish notion that man controls the climate, and all that is needed to improve it is a carbon tax.
The founders are more senior now and a bit more relaxed because we have been joined by many concerned youngsters, and the alarmist tide has definitely turned. Once we were ignored by most of the media – now some friends report our message and the others are sufficiently concerned by our message that they try to dig up dirt on us and our motivations.
Why was this battle against climate alarmism all over the world largely led by the oldies? Here are a few reasons:
