Australian Climate Madness Tax or No tax on election eve?

Does Labor want an ETS or not? Flip a coin - the answer you get will be about as reliable as asking Joolya, who also doesn't want to admit to wanting a carbon tax or ETS. Labor are in disarray on climate, on the one hand having to appease the Greens, but on the other not wanting to let Abbott scare everybody with the "great big new tax on everything" line........

The Unbearable Nakedness of CLIMATE CHANGE

For an inordinately long time, one of the biggest troubles with Climatology has been its fixation with predicting the future, far before it will ever be able to understand the actual mechanisms of Earth’s climate in detail enough.

This has several nasty consequences, including a predisposition on the part of the very scientists to describe the future as some kind of catastrophe, and to make do without professional niceties (what is the point of being gentlemanly when the world is risking a fiery end of ice or fire?).....Read more

The carbon casino caught with its pants down (again) « JoNova

Another major carbon auditor goes down.

At the time it was so large it had approved fully half of all CDM credits on the market. Its excess workload was transferred to number two auditor, SGS, and shock, this week, SGS has been caught and suspended because it couldn’t prove it’s staff had properly vetted projects either. Indeed it couldn’t show that they were even trained to do that vetting. (Did SGS not see this coming?)....Read more

Then I discovered all the things we weren’t being told (like this and this), and how much money was involved and I was shocked.
