Surely we elect our parliment to "Lead us" not nominate 150 stooges to have a talk fest. On anther matter if Ms Gillard was deputy PM at that stage why did she not automatically take the chair in the Security meetings?

I think the government now knows that the CO2=global warming farce is at an end and is delaying decisions so that the community can catch up with the reality. Within a year there will be all sorts of "NEW" science and a new "consensus" that the warming crisis is over. Many pats on the backs for averting the imaginary disaster and the green/red economic terrorists will look for another reason to sabotage economic growth.

Even China has committed to an ETS in 5 years and for those who think Co2 = global warming is a farce then I guess a large portion of the scientific community doesnt know what they are talking about. Bottom line is we all want a seamless shift and no pain at all while on the same token we are happy to pay for 45% more in electricity charges a la WA without any hint of a carbon price! So far as any threat to economic growth is concerned, this is the same big business and banking community which has triggered the worst slowdown ( heaven forbid the "r' word) in decades for small business owners and I guess that's an imaginary disaster too....
