Ganaut's (newest) bright idea


We should be aiming for one carbon emissions entitlement per person.

This would mean that China, India etc. could continue to expand emissions (right now they are way below us in emissions per person) until they reach the level we will have reached as we wind back our emissions per person.

Because Australia has (and will keep having) a strong immigration program - our absolute emissions reductions targets would not be as tough as for European countries.

At the Press Club he said it was the only way forward. Convergence. One carbon emissions entitlement per person.
