And these are the Liberals?

They only came to power due to the incompetence of the Brumby government, and now we’re left wondering what good this new mob is.

IT FOUGHT against its existence, but the Baillieu government has had an apparent change of heart on the carbon price, saying Victoria was “well-placed to take advantage of opportunities” it creates.

The about-face was triggered by the federal government’s announcement that the Climate Change Authority – created under the clean energy laws passed last month to provide expert advice on their operation – would be based in Melbourne.

Premier Ted Baillieu had previously campaigned against the laws as “bad for Victoria”, but was notably less critical in a statement issued yesterday.

“The Commonwealth legislation has now passed and Australia has entered a new era of energy and climate change policy. Hosting the authority will position Victoria as the centre for Australia’s clean technology, energy efficiency, and carbon trading industries,” he said. “These industries will generate new opportunities and attract business investment and, by hosting the Climate Change Authority, Victoria will be at the centre of this economic change.”

About Climate Nonconformist

Hi, I'm the climatenonconformist (not my real name), and I am a global warming skeptic, among the few in generation Y. With Australia facing the prospect of a carbon tax, we need to be asking the simple question; where is the evidence that our emissions are causing any dangerous warming?
