Sorry Subtle, that site "The Carbon Sense Coalition" can be immediately discredited. The chairman is the director of Stanmore Coal. Australia is heavily influenced by the coal industry, and many political decisions right or wrong come from there. This is why Australia is slow on reacting to global warming, and also many environmentally friendly inventions inventors have left, for America (I believe) to set up their companies and move forward. In fact Australia (and New Zealand), when being honest and I lived their for 20 years, is incredibly backwards in regards to sourcing energy. A country that is always bathed in sunlight, does not, as far as I know, have a single solar farm!

As I've said until I'm almost blue in the face, the oil and coal industry, just like the pesticide, flurocarbon, cigarette manufacturers have already done and continue to do (in the case of pesticides), will spend many $'s to support their future profits. In every case, consumer health is very low on their consideration, just as it has been proven to be in the auto industry.
Industry cannot be self regulating. While I know many, especially those born or living in North America, like to worry themselves silly about over controlling governments taking away free choice, there is very much a need for a body to regulate industry. Look at the mess lack of Banking regulation did to the world's, and particularly, America's economy with sub-prime lending. Unfortunately you cannot sit back and believe industry will do the right thing. Industry exists to make profits for the many owners. There is no other reason.
The great thing about governments, and yes it is like this in America and Canada too thanks to democracies, is you (once you become a legal adult) can vote. This means if you are uncomfortable with their direction, you can chuck them out. We absolutely cannot do that to industry, without government help.
If you live under a democracy, the debate and fear of authoritarian governments is utterly mute, and yet particularly Americans (from where I sit) like to bleat on about it ... and I guess in many cases, not vote! Utterly amazing. They should IMO, be sent Saudi Arabia, etc. to experience what the term authoritarian government really means.
