All evidence of this treachery went down the memory hole
Piers Akerman / The Daily Telegraph / January 20, 2012
This is a matter of serious national security concern but the Gillard Labor-Green-Independent minority government is so conflicted with its stance on global warming and the hated carbon dioxide tax that it cannot bring itself to address the crisis.
Instead, it has tried to hide the evidence.
Unfortunately for them, a Frenchman named Jean-Marc Jancovici has foiled their plans and put the document on the web. It is called Report 117: Transport Energy Futures -- Long Term Oil Supply Trends and Projections.
The report was prepared for the Minister for Infrastructure Anthony Albanese by Dr David Gargett of the Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics (BITRE).
BITRE provides economic analysis, research and statistics on infrastructure, transport and regional development issues to inform both Australian government policy development and wider community understanding.
But in this instance, Albanese and the Gillard government don't want the community to understand what is going on and have removed the report from government websites -- despite the fact that the report actually invites comments.
According to BITRE, Albanese declined to release the report. It has been sent, however, to a number of European organisations (which probably explains how it eventually ended up on the French website).
Albanese has given no reason for not officially releasing the report.
If you seek the report on BITRE's website you will find all reports up to 116 in a neat numerical order but after 116 they are in no order at all. Some are not even numbered.
That's to confuse searchers and make it less obvious that Report 117 has disappeared down the memory hole. ...
