Roger’s new paper on the Rudd government charade is brilliant. Do read the Australian media below, but then read the discussion draft [PDF]
It is true that my analysis failed to account for accounting tricks:
Australia’s Climate Change Ministrer, Penny Wong, yesterday said the paper ignored ”the important role international permits will play in Australia’s low cost transition to a low pollution future”. ”The government’s policy includes using international permits as part of the market-based Carbon Pollution Reduction Schemeâ€¦”
So Australia doesn’t really intend to decarbonize its economy? Wow.
