I think the government has suckered a lot of the green and climate movement with this. To say “yes” to something of which we don’t yet know the details is not smart for us (but I guess it was smart tactics by Gillard).

A question for climate campaigners: why were we able to stare down Labor over their hopeless CPRS but now almost everyone seems to have blinked and averted their eyes?

We should be campaigning directly for renewable energy and for phase-out of the polluting industries.

No arguments from me. At the moment as you know I’m in Europe and the gap between the rapidly evolving understanding of the climate problem here and the childish, shortsighted defence of the status quo in Australia is stark and depressing. The Guardian article you link to reflects the increasing desperation and pessimism characterizing the discussion here but at least acknowledges the facts as they are. In Oz it would probably be dismissed as ‘warmist’ propaganda.
