Perhaps it’s all just different ways of politicians who are under pressure from rising unemployment trying to appear to be doing something about global warming, while not doing anything at all.Europe’s method is to have a cap and trade scheme that doesn’t work. Australia’s method is to propose one that does not happen.

Maybe this slide into deep recession worldwide is just a symptom that the world has nothing interesting left to discuss other than the weather.
