I have just been watching the Labor/Greens Coalition press conference on the Climate Change Committee. Julia Gillard talks of believing in the science of global warming, as if there was a scientific consensus. Bob Brown talks of the economic benefits of having a price on carbon as if it doesn't matter what the rest of the world does. He waxes eloquently about the great benefits to Australia of fixing our climate by reducing carbon emissions. Carbon, an essential part of life and plant growth, continues to be demonised.
These people really are in cloud cuckoo land.
