Carbon committee crumbles


The Australian Financial Review for 23rd December has a story called  “Carbon committee trades away its principles” by Sophie Morris

The principles that Labor, the Greens and two independent MPs have set for pricing carbon may have little real impact as even the committee that set them acknowledges there will probably be trade-offs.
The federal government’s multi-party climate committee met for the third time on Tuesday and finalised 11 principles.

Classic stitch-up and fudge then…

“In a further blow to transparency, the committee failed to keep its promise to publish by Wednesday paper that were presented to it on Tuesday, including on the options for carbon pricing mechanisms.”

Way to build trust. Not.
