Neither Tax nor Trading Will Halt Pollution

I'm am still having trouble with this whole political obsession with all things carbon and yet all other pollutants are virtually ignored.

With talk about carbon tax, carbon trading, carbon emissions things and it came home to me yesterday as I was reading an article in The Australian online that quotes Greg Combet Labor's Mr Fix It who said these words in refusing to rule out a move towards nuclear energy:

I paraphrase here when he said: “What you achieve with a price on carbon is that by pricing the pollution you change the relative cost of using difference fuel sources to produce energy.”

So what does that tell us? With governments talking about pricing the pollution that means that they've accepted they aren't going to do anything about stopping the pollution and the more profitable companies can continue to pollute.

The other point we can't forget is that someone thinks nuclear energy doesn't have any pollution that could damage the environment at all ….does it? …....Turn It Up.
