'Abatement sourced from overseas…' will cost us nearly $10b pa

http://www.abc.net.au/news/specials/climate-change/emission-reductions/

…comprises more than *half* of the ‘abatement’

400 Mt pa x $23/t = $9.2b of taxpayers money paid overseas.

Unbelievable.

How did we get into this situation where a totally *unrepresentative*
PM, propped up by a couple of *unrepresentative* Independents ignores
the polls and imposes this shit on us?

"SUPPORT for federal Labor has collapsed in metropolitan Sydney and is
so low in Queensland that former prime minister Kevin Rudd would be the
only government MP to hold his seat in the state if elections had been
held last weekend".

"…the number of people who thought they would be worse off … still
remained at 69 per cent from 77 per cent in April. The number of people
who thought they would be better off rose to 9 per cent from 6 per cent
in April".

    # While I disagree with British PM David Cameron on almost everything, I do
    agree with him on his aim of greening the economy and ecology of Britain.
        After all, while a nuclear bunker might enable the rich to survive
    underground for some 35 years, emerging into a non-radioactive world; even a
    bunker won’t save them from global warming due to human folly.
        So, while the average Ozzie drongo, fed mental garbage by the Press, may
    now view any carbon tax or rectifying action as unnecessary, Nhature may
    have other ideas.
        Doomsday cometh, as AGW increments remorselessly.
        Victorian dams are some 60% full, but we could be in for a long, hot,
    summer, so don’t ease or scrap water restrictions too soon.
        Elections come, and elections go; but AGW goes on forever (?).
        The Greens may be a pest, but are probably right.
