Having just heard another obsequious interview by Alison Carabine on ABC Radio National Breakfast about the ACF (Australian Conservation Foundation) and ACTU (Australian Council of Trade Unions) report entitled “Green Gold Rush: How ambitious environmental policy can make Australia a leader in the global race for green jobs“, I thought I would download it to have a read.
40 pages of claims with no evidence.
The ACF and ACTU wants to increase the cost of Electricity for every Australian, the cost of fuel for every driver, make many industries no longer internationally competitive, and this will somehow magically result in more green jobs???
I wonder what some of the ACTU’s members in the Brown Coal Industry, and the Aluminium industry will make of this? You can read about the report (” A New National Report” – funded by the ACF and ACTU – how unbiased is that) here.
The ACTU call it a “Green Gold Rush”. Is it a gold rush for members of the ACTU, or for the economic modellers that make this stuff up.
