  •  Adam, this last week was the biggest waste (6+ / 0-)

    of time in Australian politics I have ever seen our leaders be party to. They did not discuss anything of substance but the opposition party played a ridiculous game of partisan, 'made up' finger pointing over something innocuous, based on fabricated evidence.
    Murdoch's Newscorp press did help as well.
    The parliament has now recessed for 6 weeks.
    It was so obvious the intent was to run out the clock, I cannot believe more Australians are not baying for blood.
    The legislation which was supposed to have been discussed and voted on this week - CPRS or Australias Carbon Pollution reduction scheme.
    They had a vote. A vote to not vote on it.

    So this is a co-ordinated world wide endeavour based on business interests and ideology, irrespective of scientific and now physical indications that climate disruption is already having an impact.

    What evil exists in the hearts and minds of these people who refuse even to give an inch when they are so blatantly and tragically wrong on this, I have trouble rationalizing.
    There is nothing in their actions or characters I can see which redeems what they do when they fight so voraciously against the change which MUST happen. A shift to sustainable energy practices. And as you indicate, will result in enormous numbers of manufacturing jobs.

    Where once I felt that compromise in Australia was possible, I guess as is becoming evident in the US and now here, it is impossible to compromise with individuals who cannot see reason but only $$$ signs.
