Tony Abbott: the science is crap, but we still need an ETS
"I think that the science is far from settled but on the insurance principle you are prepared to take reasonable precautions against significant potential risks, and that's I think why it makes sense to have an ETS," he said.
"But it's got to be the right one not one that destroys Australian jobs and damages Australian industries."
I can't quite understand how Tony Abbott thinks the ETS is insurance against anything - it won't the change climate one bit. It's like an insurance policy with very hefty premiums, but absolutely no cover whatsoever. You may as well burn your money instead.
