- The Oz.Gov agreed to carbon emission reductions under the Kyoto Protocol. Suckers.
- Not wanting to bankrupt their major political supporters, they allowed favored companies (like energy and transportation) to increase emmissions.
- Facing big fines from the UN for violating Kyoto (suckers!), they passed a law preventing farmers from clearing their land. See, vegetation is a "carbon sink" and offsets emmissions from the Oz.Gov's big business supporters.
- It was too expensive to compensate the farmers for the billions of dollars of value forcibly extracted under the new law.
- Since the farmers couldn't use their land, they all started going out of business.
So far, the Oz.Gov is refusing to meet with Spencer, saying he should go through the courts. Of course, the courts refused to hear his case.
Infinite Loop. (n) See Loop, Infinite.
And note the approving comments from the University Professor on the theft by the Oz.Gov. Omelets, eggs, whatever. I'm sure she'd be horrified if the Oz.Gov had to make other changes to save money - oh, I don't know, maybe eliminating her department at the University?
Good luck, Mr. Spencer. Sadly, we've seen this sort of thing before, and it doesn't end well.
