Australia could go back to the Stone Age tomorrow and it would make no difference to global climate. Yet the need to be politically correct keeps the new government of Tony Abbott babbling nonsensical warmism.
During an ABC interview, environment minister Greg Hunt said:
Well I do think it is important that we act, and one of the great tragedies of the previous government’s system is that in fact our emissions between 2010 and 2020 go up during the period of the carbon tax from 560 to 637 million tonnes. That’s why I’m determined that we take real action to actually reduce emissions. So, do we accept the science? Yes. Do we accept the targets? Yes. Do we think that there is a far better way of both taking pressure off households and reducing emissions? Absolutely.
