The ACF and ACTU combine their Intellects to Produce a Plan!

I don't think you would expect anything different from such an unholy alliance and the absolute tripe they have produced will not disappoint. The Computer models they are using must have been borrowed from the Global Warming crowd  to produce such wild predictions. They are going to produce 770,000 more jobs by 2030 in this Alice in Wonderland scenario using technologies that have not and are not working economically anywhere. Living standards are definitely going to be higher after we  give up air conditioning, pay a fortune for  electric cars running on torch cells, cope with skyrocketing electricity costs and higher taxation to pay for all the "green job drones" the government will have to employ. Of course bucket-loads of taxpayers funds would be needed because no one in their right mind would use such costly and unreliable technologies without subsidization.
Bio-fuels also get a Guernsey in this fantasy even though they are now being viewed negatively because of  their effects on world food prices and the fact that  they don't really reduce emissions anyway.
Already, China and California are staking their claim on the global
solar industry, Asia is rapidly becoming a leader in affordable electric
vehicle manufacture and Europe leads the globe in wind generation
technologies, staking their claim in what is shaping up to be a US$2.3
trillion clean energy industry by 2020.1
The idea that Australia will compete with China in mass produced technology is absurd as can be seen by the  way China has destroyed solar panel competitors in Germany and the US!
The kicker for me is that this magnificent plan will save us 240 billion dollars in International Carbon Permits by 2030 using the Strong Action Plan . You will only save this if you were idiot enough to pay it in the first place.
 I think the Australian public has a Strong Action plan of their own which will be implemented next election to rid this country of the twits who support this nonsense.


  1. 0+0=0 does that about sum it up mate

  2. Part of their conclusion is mischievously misleading to the casual reader, as they actually mean "more jobs, lower debt, savings for households from lower energy costs, a higher standard of living" compared with their Weak Action model. As we all know how energy costs ARE ALREADY ESCALATING.
