Greens spot carbon target change

The ODT reports that the Greens have spotted what appears to be a unilateral agreement by the Government to reduce the carbon equivalent emissions target for the agricultural industry from a 20% reduction to a 10% reduction.

What will be interesting to watch is how the Greens will end up still voting for the Government’s Emissions Trading Scheme despite it being watered down repeatedly. Even the original scheme was derided by Greenpeace as achieving almost nothing.

But I predict the Greens will still vote for it. They have never shown an ability to play hard ball, which is why they keep getting taken for granted.
