The quick way to see if the Australian government’s CO2 emission targets are adequate is to check the reaction from The Australian. Since The Australian believes that it’s not warming and we’re not causing it and it will not be harmful and we can’t do anything about it, they’re not going to approve of any targets that will do anything. So what’s the verdict?
the Prime Minister’s policy response to the Garnaut report is largely balanced, prudent and cautious. While honouring his promise to act on climate change, it is mindful of the need to protect jobs in challenging economic times.
Ouch. That bad.
