At long last it looks as though the insanely dopey Emmissions Trading Scheme will get the arse.
The Government said yesterday it would probably ditch the rest of the emissions trading scheme as scheduled beyond 2013 if its major trading partners did not have schemes as well.
It's an interesting move. Dr Smith plays to the home audience and PM Key addresses the international wankers who still believe the junk science of the warmeniser extremists.
Dr Smith said the Australian Government announcement was no surprise and that it was not the only important market.
He said of 38 countries with obligations under the Kyoto Protocol, 29 had an ETS in place.In fact only two of them, Norway and Switzerland, of the 29 are not members of the European Union scheme.
I'd be interested to see Dr Smith's list of the twenty nine countries he alleges already have instituted their own version of the economic disaster. Methinks they will include few of our serious trading partners.
Is this a case where bloggers can quietly take a little credit for bringing pressure to bear?
