The Age reports on the government’s plan to close coal-fired power plants, and makes the typical warmist mistake.
The removal of the dirtiest power generation in the country is part of the government’s Clean Energy Future plan, which also includes a $23/tonne price on carbon from July 2012, household assistance and funding for renewable energy projects.
In a tonne of carbon, there are four times as many molecules as in a tonne of carbon dioxide. What are they taxing? Maybe I’m being too technical, but the distinction is important.
