John Humphreys and Greg Lindsay promote Carbon Tax for Australia

Below, 2 videos of John Humphreys, Mannkal Scholar and Research Fellow at the Centre for Independent Studies (CIS)  promoting a Carbon Tax for Australia.

Greg Lindsay, CIS founder, although not seen in these videos excerpts, is present at this Climate Change Policy roundtable discussion.

The ostensive purpose of the meeting is to argue why a Carbon Tax is better than an ETS (Emissions Trading Scheme).

Achieving CO2 reduction is treated as a “starting assumption”.

The “No Tax – No ETS” position is not discussed.

At odds with Greg Lindsay‘s professed understanding and support of Hayek – and presumably Hayek’s extensive writings on Capital Structure – a “revenue neutral” Carbon Tax is proposed and even lauded as a “no regrets” approach.

This is combined with an “extrapolate the past – accelerate the future” narrative, composed of technological “optimism” mixed together with an interventionist re-definition and usurping of the concept of “the price mechanism” by John Humphreys. The effect is surreal.

The complete, un-edited video of this CIS roundtable can be viewed HERE.

Text comments by me inserted throughout both the following two videos:

Physics: Double slit experiment, electrons forming interference pattern

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCoiyhC30bc]

The Double Slit Experiment, conducted by Hitachi scientists:

Whenever electrons are observed, they are always detected as individual particles. When accumulated, however, interference fringes are formed.

Please recall that at any one instant there was at most one electron in the microscope. We have reached a conclusion which is far from what our common sense tells us.

Snapshots at different times:

Electrons go through a double slit, one by one, but over time form a wave-like interference pattern

Electrons go through a double slit, one by one, but over time form a wave-like interference pattern

The only explanation of these results which does not postulate nonlocal particles or nonlocal waves, is that provided by Dr Lewis Little with his Theory of Elementary Waves. Learn more @ TEWLIP.com
