Climate madness from Rudd & Wong
"The global financial situation has heightened the importance of providing business certainty on the scheme," Senator Wong said in a statement.
The economy is already weakened, and the ETS will only make it worse. She just stops short of using the dreaded "D" word about the Opposition, however:
Opposition calls to delay carbon trading were undermining business certainty and were out of step with community attitudes.
"The opposition is looking for any excuse to delay action on climate change, but Australians understand that the longer we wait, the more it will cost us," Senator Wong said.
Once such "excuse" possibly being the fact that it will make not one iota of difference to global climate even if CO2 is a driver of temperature, which, given present cooling trends, is looking less and less likely.
Pure climate madness.
