I think it’s time for a new catchphrase in politics, as we currently have the Labour Party umming and ahhing over the impact of carbon trading on NSW and VIC’s dirty coal generators and jobs, the Liberal Party saying “do nothing, quickly” in the hope of appeasing their corporate paymasters under the guise of protecting the economy and the Nationals being very quiet, probably working out how to square the impact of increased drought on their rural electorates with not falling out with the Liberal party.
ITS THE PLANET, STUPID
If you waste time faffing around trying to not damage the economy (which isn’t a given) and not addressing the issue then it very much looks like there’s not going to be much of a country left to worry about!
I second that phrase, Chris. This is one reason why I choose to get the bus or train into work, and walk for short distance journeys.
