Listening to people complain about KRudd's 5% emissions reduction plan makes my blood boil.
I hear them, complaining that more needs to be done, that Krudd has just caved to Big Coal, and he's in the pay of Big Coal and the power stations.
It's a shame that these lame-brained idiots don't connect the electricty which they rely on so much, both directly and indirectly (manufacturing, etc), with the "Big Coal" and power stations. It's a shame that they can't think further ahead than yesterday.
The complaints that there must be more done and a larger emission reduction are made by those who can not see that it's their lifestyle which will be changed and it's them who will be paying.
Those calling for a bigger cut to emissions don't seem to see that the major generator of electricity in Australia, the main electricity production, is from burning coal. They really haven't done their research on AGW/CC, so I suppose it's a big ask to imagine they've done any research on the sustainability of green power.
Just so as we’re square, I don’t believe there should be any emission reduction. There is no such thing as anthropogenic global warming/climate change. I think that it makes more sense to continue to work to curb real pollution rather than concentrate on what’s now known as green house gases, which seem to be the by-products of life.
