Part 1: Labor’s climate policy – moving backwards, fast

This is part one of our special 2010 federal election climate policy series. Part 2 is here, and part 3 here.

It’s all very confusing. So many schemes, funds, initiatives and flagships. Taking money from this one to pay for that one. So here’s a straight-talking summary of Labor’s climate policies, including previously announced schemes.


A Big New Focus Group (BNFG)

Labor’s most immediate and pressing climate change measure is to hold off on pricing carbon until after they open the phone book at random pages, point to 150 names, and have these people represent the general population (hang on, isn’t that what politicians are for?) then let them talk about the science (!!!) and the policy options (???) so they can come to a consensus. Over a period of twelve months. Come on, it’s only going to cost 9 million dollars! Money that would otherwise be supporting renewable energy development, since it’s coming out of the Renewable Energy Future Fund.

Has 150 random people ever come to a consensus on anything, ever? (more…)

This is the current C02 in our atmosphere. We need to get it below 350 for a safe climate.
