It's not over: Rudd vows to fight for emissions scheme
April 24, 2010
Climate change is still on the agenda, write Phillip Coorey and Peter Hartcher.
KEVIN RUDD says the great moral challenge posed by climate change is undiminished and he will keep trying to implement an emissions trading scheme if Labor is re-elected.
The SCAM Exposed AGAIN.
Al Gore has made $500 Million, so far, out of his and the UN’s Anthropogenic Global Warming SCAM.
How much has Comrade Lu Kewen made ?
Australian’s will pay an extra 64% (before 2012) on their electricity bills BEFORE the UN’s and Lu Kewen’s aka. Kevin 07 Labor Party’s, Anthropogenic Global Warming TAX is implemented.
"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace al armed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary."
"The urge to save humanity is almost always a false front for the urge to rule "
H. L. Mencken
In an interview with the Herald, Mr Rudd rejected growing criticism that he had abandoned the climate change cause because it was no longer a vote winner after the Copenhagen conference and the defeat of his emissions trading scheme.
"It's very clear cut that whether climate change is topical or not, whether it is popular or not, the reality of it does not disappear," he said.
"This remains a fundamental economic, environmental and moral challenge. Whether it's newsworthy or not in a particular season is beside the point. We haven't changed our view of this.''
The Senate has twice blocked legislation for the emissions trading scheme. The legislation is again before the Parliament but the Senate has delayed debate until at least next month and there is next to no chance there will be a vote before the election expected in the spring.
Mr Rudd said that if he is re-elected, he will try again to have a scheme introduced but it would depend on the make-up of the Senate.
''We've got to ensure that we act on climate change and we do so always within the scope of our powers. We maintain our position that this is part of the most efficient and most effective means by which we can reduce greenhouse gas emissions with the least cost to the economy.''
Mr Rudd can use the twice-defeated emissions trading scheme as a trigger for a double dissolution election. While coy on that prospect, he said he would have no problem advocating an emissions trading scheme during a campaign.
He said Australia was playing a key role in trying to forge meaningful international action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions: ''National action in the absence of global action doesn't add up to a row of beans.''
He did not agree Copenhagen was a failure. It had produced an accord that temperature increases should not exceed 2 degrees, he said. In the past three months, Australia had been working intensively to get countries to sign up. So far, 74 countries, producing 80 per cent of the world's emissions, have pledged to reduce emissions by 2020.
Mr Rudd spoke to the Herald the day after his meeting this week with the premiers and chief ministers on health - and the day before the government broke its promises on insulation and childcare.
Mr Rudd had promised to put a health plan to the states by mid-2009; then he asked them to accept the plan or face a referendum at the 2010 election.
He said it was unfair to accuse him of breaking a promise just because the health plan was not presented until early March.
''I can never quite understand the criticism from Abbott and others at the time about why there is a six-month delay,'' he said.
''For goodness sake, 12 years of [Howard government] inertia and after two years we've decided to take a further six months to consider the implications for such a big reform, the biggest since the introduction of Medicare.'''
The West Australian Premier, Colin Barnett, has refused to sign the heath deal because he does not want to give the Commonwealth 33 per cent of his GST revenue. He will sign up if his state can contribute the money to the reforms independently.

Lu Kewen,aka,Australian PM Kevin Rudd, is the personification of the Australian Labor Party and its ideology and objectives.
A creation of Australia’s MSM, a darling of FM music radio stations and Socialist Today show hosts,who thought that asking him what colour tie he was going to wear tomorrow was a hard hitting and searching examination of his and his party’s agenda.
