Remember the Humorous Superbowl 'Green Police' Ad? Don't Laugh, Australia Now Has Carbon Cops

 2010 Super Bowl Car Ad - The Green Police

It sounds like some sort of joke that a right-wing shock jock in the US might make about left-wing claims of anthropological global warming. But if anyone doubts the adage that 'reality is stranger than fiction' they need look no further than to the headlines in Australia. Yes, Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard is bringing in new legislation that would create 'carbon cops'. Relating to an earlier post explaining the link between leftist socialism and nationalist authoritarianism, is there any better example of this than the Orwellian-sounding 'Clean Energy Regulator' in the Australian Labor Party's carbon tax bill?

This comes as new date from NASA reported today shows that the climate data from the IPCC has been false and alarmist.  Another story reports that as part of the Labour government's plan to battle so-called 'man-made global warming', they are also looking into the possibility of hiring 'camel killers'. It's not yet known if these 'camel killers' would also have all the power of 'carbon cops'. The authority of these inspectors under the legislation would include the power to:

  • Enter the premises of any company and demand copies of any information.
  • Obtain information from company employees even if it incriminates them.
  • Have the courts punish attempts to subvert the carbon scheme by up to 10 years in jail or fines of $1.1 million for corporations.
Early signs in Prime Minister Gillard's own electorate indicate that there could be a backlash from Australian voters against her own carbon tax legislation.

    Leader of Her Majesty's Opposition and Australian Liberal Party and The Nationals' Coalition, Tony Abbott, wasted no time coming out swinging against the carbon tax legislation. Abbott spoke to the Nine's Today Show, saying “I mean this is a draconian new police force chasing an invisible, odourless, weightless, tasteless substance...Not only is the carbon tax going to be with you every time you turn on the TV or open the fridge or get into bed with the electric blanket on, there's now going to be a carbon cop...The carbon cop could hit you with 10 years in jail and million dollar plus fines.” 

    **Special mention to anyone who comments on this post explaining why Al Gore and his environmentalist friends quietly replaced the phrase 'global warming' with 'climate change' instead.**
