Australia shit-cans the carbon tax! Hooray! Another hoax gone!

“Celebrate! Australia’s carbon [dioxide] tax is gone!”
— Australian Climate Madness (7/17/14) Click here & here to read about Australian Climate Madness, a worthy blog. Click here for commentary in The Spectator.
The carbon tax, that utterly pointless environmental gesture that would have done nothing for the climate, has been repealed today in the Senate. Good riddance.
The toxic tax, together with the originally planned emissions trading scheme, has claimed, over the years, about half a dozen senior politicians, including Kevin Rudd, Julia Gillard and Malcolm Turnbull, all of whom have shackled themselves to the altar of climate change alarmism, and paid the price.
The Australian reports:
THE carbon tax has been repealed, fulfilling Tony Abbott’s “pledge in blood” to abolish the landmark Gillard government scheme.
The Senate passed the government’s amended carbon tax repeal bills by a margin of 39 votes to 32 at 11.14am, with only the Labor Party and the Greens opposing their passage into law.
It was the Senate’s third attempt to pass the repeal legislation.
The vote was held as Bill Shorten gave a clear pledge to take a new carbon pricing mechanism to the next federal election, due in 2016, in the form of an emissions trading scheme.
They never learn, do they? Idiots. You can add Shorten to the above list of climate victims.

Awesome news for the AUSSIES! News for Patina to “blow her horn” about in celebration, and she knows what I mean by this.
Bottom line, may there be fewer victims of WTS, and all the negative effects of turbines. We press on!
Happy for our friends Down Under, and may other governments take note. Sometimes we feel we are not making a difference. But it is like the starfish story. Google it. “It made a difference to that one.”
Thank you Dr Calvin for sharing this hopeful, good news!

May the “tail” (that is, the sensible people) wag the dog, worldwide! Australia is coming to its senses.
May the wind power fraud be exposed and its purveyors and perpetrators be run out of every government.
Hurrah for another victory!
Now, it is time for the victims to get recourse of their losses. The rubber-stamp governments must pay for their “renewable” energy folly.
