WAS AUSSIE CLIMATE CHANGE POLICY A LOT OF HOT AIR?
Posted 31 March 2010
"Kevin Rudd declared climate change 'the great moral and economic challenge of our time'. Now
the legislation has become less important than getting 30 per cent of
the GST from the states so the Commonwealth can rearrange financing in
the hospital system. Can a momentous moral challenge fizzle out like
this? Or are you beginning to suspect that all the crisis, all the
urgency, was politically driven?......As it is, Earth Hour has become an apt metaphor for their tactical
approach - a time to spread darkness rather than illumination." – Former Treasurer Peter Costello, writing in the Melbourne Age.
