IT would be difficult to justify an emissions trading scheme (ETS) that imposed large costs for purely symbolic benefit during a period of prosperity – it is absurd to consider as much during a financial crisis.
Given the outcry the Rudd government in Australia has decided to postpone introduction of its proposed ETS by one year. That’s good news.
But the enabling legislation is still going to parliament this June and every vote will count in the Senate.
Send the Senators in your state an eCard to let them know how you feel.
