I listened to the debate about fuel excises in parliament yesterday... What a lot of clap trap! I am now convinced that our political system has no means of producing the action or answers to the energy problems our country will be forced to face in the coming years! I can't believe the argument went on so long about making petty attempts to reduce the cost of petrol!
How bloody irresponsible! So what if the Government takes tax from fuel! In my opinion they should tax it even more!
This should not even be an issue! The cost of fuel is going to go up... We need to find solutions to our energy needs, we need to be investing more in research into alternative fuels, transport systems and bolstering our communities against the inevitable reduction in mobility that is bound to result from the Peak Oil phenomenon. Reducing the cost of fuel will only encourage the delusion that we can go on as we have indefinitely rather than allow us to truly see the situation as it is.
Why continue bleating about the escalating cost of a non renewable resource? We are using the stuff at a ridiculous rate... If the true value of things was known the average worker wouldn't be able to afford it at all!
Once again I am reminded that we live in a Fools Paradise!
