Climate sense - Carbon tax is just tilting at windmills

Amongst all the scaremongering, bad science, alarmism and just downright nonsense in the media at the moment, to read a sensible article is like a breath of fresh air. The first two paragraphs of this article in The Australian by Gary Johns sum up the position perfectly:
THE one certainty of climate change (anthropogenic or not) is that it is unstoppable. Government advertisements suggest worst-case scenarios but they do not concede that these are no less likely should Australia cut its carbon dioxide output. Whether or not you believe in man-made climate change, it's out of our control.

More significantly, it is out of the control of every political leader. There is no prospect that nations will agree on global action sufficient to reduce the total level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

And that's the point - reducing CO2 in Australia will achieve nothing (other than economic suicide).
