In a brave political move yesterday, Rudd has decided to introduce a policy of destroying the Great Barrier Reef. Or so our lefty friends tell us. The ALP policy of reducing national carbon emissions by 5% by 2020 (over 2000 levels) has been met with much sadness and gnashing of teeth by the climate warm-mongers.
Though not everybody thinks the ALP is too soft. Andrew Bolt thinks that the 5% reduction is too much, and he points out that it is actually a 34% reduction per person from 1990 levels.
