Peter Kauf­mann’s re­sponse to Peter Den­ton’s ar­ti­cle hits the mark when facts come into play as op­posed to Peter Den­ton’s green rhetoric, which gen­er­ally is just opin­ion.

In­ter­est­ingly, no one has ad­dressed the amount of money that has been con­trib­uted to the “tax base” to pay the bills from all the “bil­lions” that has been spent on so-called “green” en­ergy projects.

With the forth­com­ing car­bon tax, the funds will end up in the same place, as well as in gen­eral rev­enues to fund gov­ern­ment ex­pan­sion. Real money funds real needs, while ide­o­log­i­cal rhetoric funds self-serv­ing plat­i­tudes.
