carbon price

Media Circus: Palmergeddon edition

This morning the Murdoch Media is full of grotesque caricatures of Clive Palmer focussing on his fat (wow, whodathunkit?) while trumpeting FUD about “chaos” in parliament because one vote on one bill in the Senate has not gone the government’s way. That spinaround didn’t take long, did it?

Palmer’s pursuit of populism has worked in the national interest for this brief moment.

What news story/commentary/analysis has grabbed your attention lately?

Dear Tony Abbott

This is what carbon dioxide detectors look like before a technician puts them into a nice portable case with a meter attached. You can order one online for less than US$20.
