If only we still lived in the era of the ‘Carry On’ comedies! This story is the best tonic to get you laughing at the total absurdity of climate taxation policy.
In a peach of an article, the ‘Australian’ makes a mockery of Prime Minister Rudd’s failure to address the serious amount of greenhouse gas that belching and farting camels inflict upon that nation’s climate. The stink of catastrophe is surely brewing.
Reporter, Ean Higgins, tells his readers:
“Scientists have found camels to be the third-highest carbon-emitting animal per head on the planet, behind only cattle and buffalo. Culling the one million feral camels that currently roam the outback would be equivalent to taking 300,000 cars off the road in terms of the reduction to the country’s greenhouse gases.”
It is one of the many quirks of international carbon accounting standards that nothing can be done to address the camel problem. Camels in Australia are the only feral herds of their kind in the world and are estimated to number more than 1,000,000 with the capability of doubling in size every nine years. Does Prime Minister Rudd give a flying one? Not on your Nelly! Like us he knows co2 junk science is all hot air and government carbon emissions policies are merely a tax raising scam that just hit the fan.
(For all non-British readers, ‘Carry On’ films were the epitome of bawdy and farcical English humor much of the ilk of Benny Hill. And this is the kind of farce that is going to make Rudd as unpopular as his camel-toe trousered Climate Minister, Penny Wong).
