I have warned that The Liberal Party’s “Direct Action Plan”, while mostly harmless and platitudinous, contains the sting of penalties for companies that increase their carbon output.
But then I was comforted by the declaration by the new Cabinet that the Carbon Tax was “socialism disguised as environmentalism”.
The latest Green Paper, sneaked out over Christmas, has removed the penalty.
Apart from that, the Liberals are doing exactly what they said they will do – here – https://greenhousebullcrap.wordpress.com/2013/05/19/the-lnp-environment-policy-clever/. They are “inviting submissions” as promised.
They will do exactly what the public want – declare that they are savin-da-planet, but doing nothing too expensive and nothing too futile about it.
They will also lock up and starve the failed, sterile, “Climate” gravy train – hope-u-dinit-have-shares-innit!
No penalty for carbon polluters
