In the wake of a crushing defeat last week for the climate alarmism-promoting Australian Labor Party, which imposed the deeply unpopular and expensive “carbon tax” credited by analysts for the conservative coalition’s victory, authorities in Australia are preparing to dismantle and consolidate the myriad global-warming schemes spawned under the previous government. However, while legislation is already being drafted, major hurdles remain before the tax on CO2 can be scrapped, sparking an outcry among businesses, state governments, and especially Australian voters, who voted overwhelmingly in favor of the new coalition and its pledge to kill the costly economic burden.

So-called global-warming alarmists are in a frenzy after the latest climate data confirmed the Earth actually appears to be entering a potential cooling trend, sea-ice cover in Antarctica is growing to record levels, tornadoes and hurricanes are at record lows, and more. According to experts, the most recent revelations continue to make a mockery of alarmist claims — debunking United Nations theories about human-caused global warming and the wildly inaccurate supposed “climate models” used to forecast doom and gloom by forces seeking carbon taxes and more centralized government.

The supreme irony is that George Mitchell's discovery of "fracking" (horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing to extract natural gas from shale) that unleashed the energy boom has completely disproved the "sustainability meme" he promoted in his later years after he sold his company.
Sixty trillion dollars? Global warming fright peddlers continue claiming the Arctic ice cap is melting so rapidly we are headed toward an eco-apocalypse. And now they’ve attached a very scary price tag to it.
