Climate Madness from Greg Combet
"Many industries which are affected by the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme or potentially affected by it of course are also being severely impacted by the global economic downturn, and so its increasingly in the commentary of the industries becoming mixed up between the two issues," he said.
"We're obviously very concerned to ensure that we support jobs in all the current industries, but I can assure you the principal driver of the job insecurity at the moment is the global economic downturn, not the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme draft legislation."
So let's just analyse this - industries are being affected more by a global downturn than a bunch of draft legislation which has no effect whatsoever? Gee, that's a surprise. How does he imagine businesses are currently affected by the draft legislation, which, until made law, isn't worth the paper it's printed on?
So much to learn, so little time, Greg.
Read it here and weep.
