The LNP, IPA, News Corp and Sky News  are part of a global Murdochian franchise and can be found in many forms in the UK and USA. The form a marriage to keep new barbarians, clean and cheaper energy from the gates. The planet, well that’s a secondary thought that can always be tweaked with money and spin spin as long as independent rational scientific information is kept under control. Information isn’t free but today it needs to be kept divided and anarchic. That’s their Art of the Deal. They sell division.

The Institute of Public Affairs paid to push targeted Facebook ads based on a “faulty analysis” claiming net zero would cause massive job losses in key Liberal and National seats during last month’s Coalition infighting. Last month, as the Coalition debated a net zero 2050 policy, the IPA paid for a series of Facebook and Instagram ads targeting the electorates of Nationals Barnaby Joyce, David Littleproud, Mark Coulton, Ken O’Dowd and Anne Webster, as well as the Liberal trade minister, Dan Tehan. The ads warned the policy “will destroy” huge numbers of jobs in each electorate. In Flynn, O’Dowd’s electorate, the ads warned “net zero emissions will destroy one in four jobs”. Other electorates would lose one in five, one in six or one in seven jobs, the ads claimed.
