New report | An unsustainable economic transformation

by Tim Wilson, November 7, 2011

Today SD has released a new report looking at the influence of the greens movement over the Australian economy. Importantly, the green movement are successfully influencing Australian government policy and restructuring, and restricting, the operations of the Australian economy based on their values. Their influence is making the Australian economy economically unsustainable.

There are numerous examples of the greens movement influencing the Australian economy. The carbon tax is an obvious case where the greens movement has succeeded in creating unsustainable false foundations of the back of a tax for their favoured industries. The new clean energy fund is equally as problematic.

But the influence of certification schemes is also becoming a problem. Voluntarily these schemes are designed to increase consumer choice and awareness about non-price value propositions. But as the greens movement is achieving, if they are legislated they are handing control of supply chains for primary industries to opaque and questionable certification bodies that green groups have significant influence over.

The long term outcome is that the Australian economy will become strangled by their influence harming sustainable economic, social and environmental development. And we will establish a poor precedent for other countries to follow.

    hawkish behavior Mr Wilson is disappointing considering your masters credentials.

    It may elect you to parliament in the eyes of the polity but it wins you no respect outside of that zone with elites elsewhere.

    your Dunning Kruger is taking over.

    pull your head in mate!!! Australians are a laughing stock because of the parliamentary Machiavellian tactics instigated by Tony Abbott.

    An alternative to what the Greens are proposing is the creation of a Depopulation-Green Economic Environment strategy.

    It is far better integrated to the market system than what many current environmental options.

    HydroInfra Technologies creates Hydro Nano Gas that Makes any fossil fuel climate neutral.


    You may already be aware of Hydro Nano Gas (HNG) technology and what it can do to eliminate air pollution from power plants, shipping and other industries.

    Did you know that HNG is also being used to clean up the seas.

    Your readers need to know about this and the joint venture projects HIT is creating around the world with industry and governments.

    Please see the latest project news on the HIT web site for more info.

    Thank you.
