EMISSIONS TRADING DOWN UNDER

This article gives a flavour of the sort of policies being considered in Australia and New Zealand to try and control emissions. I note that methane emissions will start to be included from 2015. This is bound to increase the price of milk, meat, cheese, butter, etc. and yet have no effect on the climate.

Hi, I came across your blog and thought you might like this initiative we are running; "Make Your Blog Carbon Neutral". If you get chance, have a look here:

Have you actually read this blog? your website says "an average website causes about 0.02g of carbon dioxide for each visit" - this is your first wild exaggeration. You are assuming that if visitors to one blog didn't visit then they would log off earlier. But this is a fallacy, they would just visit another blog. If this blog did not exist no carbon would be saved at all!
