Brexit’s done, now for our Clexit

Thanks to Boris Johnson, Brexit will now occur. And thanks to Donald Trump, the United States will exit the destructive Paris Climate agreement. And the United Nations alarmists have made little progress at the big climate-fest in Madrid.

It’s now time for Clexit; Climate Exit — the great climate escape from all UN/IPCC alarmism and entanglements. Australia should join this rush for the exits.

Australia is a huge island continent whose prosperity was built on mining, farming, grazing, transport, hydro-carbons and cheap reliable electricity. Australians have much to lose from the UN/Paris shackles, carbon taxes and the climate warriors’ radical agenda.

The war on coal, oil, gas, diesel, cattle, exploration and mining has harmed Australia’s backbone industries resulting in reduced prosperity, lower tax collections and more Aussies on welfare. The Kyoto forest lockups have sterilised useful private land and the promotion of unreliable wind/solar energy is destroying industry, jobs and electricity reliability.

Sensible Australians will suddenly revolt and, just like Jeremy Corbyn, the Turnbull/ALP/Green/ABC climate alarm choir will find they are singing the wrong tune.

Like Brexit, Clexit is now inevitable. The burden of climate alarm costs and energy disruption ensure that western democracies will dump it. The sooner it is scrapped, the lower the cost to us as individuals, to jobs and our economy as a whole.
