The Australian ETS Green Paper

Even the summary is 80 pages, so that's weekend reading.

It seems though that the near consensus on the left at least is that too much has been conceded too early to special interests.

The Government are now calling the scheme the 'Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme' which sounds like a good spin to me. That is until you hear Kevin Rudd on the ABC this morning unable to reassure his interviewer that it will in fact reduce carbon pollution! (At least in the medium term).
