Carbon Offset Guide – Show me the money!

Carbon offset guide here’s the list of criminals suspects all hoping to make huge profits out of your lifestyle!

Firstly what is your personal carbon footprint? There’s a footprint calculator here – which will tell you how many planets it takes to support your lifestyle (guilt, guilt, guilt). For the average westerner expect to pay big! Next do your spouse, and then your kids.

Next try your household. Here’s a household emissions calculator (ave is 10 tonne/person/yr). So a family of 4 is looking at around 40 tonne/year. At approx. $20-$50/tonne that amounts to $800-$2000/family per year – and thats JUST the beginning expect it to go UP! And this is on top of the climate debt your government is expected to pay despots in the third world. This is 0.7% of GDP or around $350/person in the west – so a family of four will be around $1400. How will the government pay this – by your taxes of course – so either expect services to be cut or other taxes raised to compensate. So the reality is $2200 – $ 3400 per family per year – all to achieve – NOTHING

But wait, there’s more; dont forget the carbon footprints of your pets, extra vehicles, even sex and sport may attract a contribution. Then there is the carbon tax on everything you buy – it all adds up to a very hefty bill – but you wont find this out till its in, the pollies pushing it will only whitewash the cost beforehand.  Oh and don’t forget events could even be taxed – sustainable events calculator More here

France throws out ETS as unconstitutional, Carbon tax criminals, Climategate criminals continue to recast themselves as victims

World Socialist Web, “To achieve the reduction in global carbon emissions required, nothing less than a complete reorganisation of the global economy is needed on a socialist basis.”

We fight not to enslave, but to set a country free, and to make room upon the earth for honest men to live in. Thomas Paine

Above all, we must realize that no arsenal or no weapon in the arsenals of the world is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. RONALD REAGAN,
My definition of a free society is a society where it is safe to be unpopular. Adlai E. Stevenson Jr
If you want to be free, there is but one way; it is to guarantee an equally full measure of liberty to all your neighbors. There is no other. Carl Schurz
The First Amendment is often inconvenient. But that is besides the point. Inconvenience does not absolve the government of its obligation to tolerate speech. Justice Anthony Kennedy
Self-reliance is the only road to true freedom, and being one’s own person is its ultimate reward. Patricia Sampson
Many politicians are in the habit of laying it down as a self-evident proposition that no people ought to be free till they are fit to use their freedom. The maxim is worthy of the fool in the old story who resolved not to go into the water till he had learned to swim. Thomas Macaulay
The law will never make men free, it is men that have to make the law free. Henry David Thoreau
If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter. George Washington
