Big End wants Carbon Price – But not Alan Jones and Co.

Has Alan Jones made one mistake too many? Is it a matter of the illusionary superior proving they are inferior?

Quote from smh “while a much smaller group in Melbourne heard the broadcaster Alan Jones refer to climate change science as ”propaganda”.

‘The notion of global warming is a hoax,” Jones told a group of about 150 people on the steps of the Victorian Parliament. ”This is witchcraft. Commonsense will tell you it’s rubbish;…” Then it is reported the Australian Communications and Media Authority reprimanded Jones’s station, 2GB, last month, after he made multiplication errors in his calculations about atmospheric greenhouse gas levels.

All this is at odds of the real picture as it emerges near to 300 companies and organisations have signed a statement backing the carbon price in a bid to balance the often-louder voices of opposition. Quoting smh “Companies including AGL, Westpac, Alstom, GE, Fujitsu, IKEA, Unilever, Grocon, Pacific Hydro and Infigen Energy have signed the statement that will feature in print and online media from today.

So if some peak organizations might say the price is too high, most including Business Council of Australia do not think it is ‘propaganda’, and as of 1 July 2012, 299 companies calling themselves ”Businesses for a Clean Economy” are endorsing the carbon price and pleading for stable, long-term policies to give clear signals to investors.Read more: http://www.smh.com.au/opinion/political-news/lets-give-it-a-chance-says-business-grouping-20120701-21b2v.html#ixzz1zROrOJLZ

CO2Land org is of the view that presenting facts is important, but distorting or selective skewing is not acceptable by anyone. The facts clearly are in favour of presenting a sustainable way to tackle climate change and carbon management, these companies is not in the business of politics they are in business full stop.  Leave emotive clichés out of it and you can see businesses that tackle climate change also move to more energy efficient practices. Is that not a good thing anyway?
