Just about the strangest letter,

written by Wayne Swan - just days after he wrote asking the House Committee to inquire into

- the choice of emissions trading as the central policy to reduce Australia's carbon pollution, taking into account the need to:

a) reduce carbon pollution at the lowest economic cost;

b) put in place long-term incentives for investment in clean energy and low-emission technology; and

c) contribute to a global solution to climate change.

"Unfortunate politicisation"?

As Kenneth Davidson writes today

"The original decision was either a cock-up, or the cabinet is split on whether the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme is so badly flawed that it should be abandoned in favour of a carbon tax."
