So it turns out that "the greatest moral challenge of our time" might not be our greatest policy priority.
So which "greatest" challenge are we talking about?
Health? Education? Preserving the capitalist world order by using socialist inspired economics?
No, it's climate change! The one time cause of choice for middle-class city dwelling youngens and leftist coffee quaffers.
Now though we've come to our senses and the CPRS (the policy equivalent of the lonely and unloveable fat kid at school) has been thrown onto the backburner until worldwide whisperings become intolerable screams and shouts.
Until that day, take solace in the fact that Rudd- the genius of expedience- will again get to dodge the danger of the hard graft and again Australia will look to the world as a follower.
Ignoring the inevitable and shying away from what the science tells us will save us.
