SYDNEY (AFP) - A top Australian politician said on Tuesday the country should introduce "meaningless" carbon trading if big polluters in the developing world do not agree to reduce emissions.
Opposition leader Brendan Nelson said he was committed to introducing emissions trading by 2012, but if big polluters like China and India do not make commitments to reduce emissions it should be deliberately toothless.
"Our policy has not changed, and that policy is we would implement an emissions trading scheme, cap-and-trade, no later than 2012," he told Sky News.
"And obviously what you would do, if for example we haven't got the big emitters on board, what you do is the price of carbon is set so low and the (emissions) trajectory is so low as to be near meaningless."
The government has committed to introducing a "cap-and-trade" carbon trading scheme by 2010, but its plans have been criticised as not going far enough to cut the greenhouse gases blamed for global warming.

Is this guy on Gore’s payroll???????????????
This is a short and easily understandable article showing the plain truth. The hinge pin that links global temperature to the greenhouse effect is missing. It is easily measurable and hundreds of probes have done so.
Written by the man who "DEVOTED six years to carbon accounting, building models for the Australian Greenhouse Office."
They are all meaningless.
* Make all carbon credit scams unlawful. Discrediting Algore should have been a slam-dunk a long time ago. Stop electing Reps who buy into the Global Warming / Global Cooling / Climate Change Hoax. CO2 is not our enemy!
