The Big Polluters have the Big Parties captured and stored

Posted by Steve on November 15, 2009

Greens Leader Bob Brown says the Rudd government and Turnbull opposition are on the verge of a polluter’s pact which will lock Australia into failure in dealing with climate change.

“The opposition, in winning a ‘permanent’ exclusion concession on agriculture, is now set for more featherbedding of the worst polluting industries before endorsing the emissions trading scheme with its risible 5% minimum greenhouse gas reduction target”, Senator Brown said.

“A Galaxy poll released by the Greens today shows most Australians want the minimum 25% reduction target called for by scientists, environmentalists and the Greens.

“A separate poll released by Australian Greens Higgins candidate Clive Hamilton shows 69% of Australians want the government to negotiate with the Greens.

“The big polluters have the big parties captured and stored.  This is a Labor-Coalition recipe for failure,” Senator Brown said.
