WHEN science becomes a religion, you get the carbon tax that was just forced into law against the wishes of the majority of the population this week.
It makes no sense, except as a blind act of faith.
It will do precisely nothing to change the climate, while hurting a fragile economy in the middle of a global downturn.
Judging by the Government's previous inept performance, the scams and waste will make the pink batts fiasco look like a picnic.
When the high priest of climate alarmism, Al Gore, applauds the carbon tax, you know you're in deep trouble.
On his website, the former US vice-president said Australia's new law meant the world "has turned a pivotal corner in the collective effort to solve the climate crisis. The voice of the people of Australia has rung out loud and clear".
It sure did -- but our Government didn't listen.
