The Prince of Precaution goes to Parliament
The following letter was sent to every Parliamentarian with an APH email address. Those without may want to consider re-using it, lest they miss out on important news in the future.
You will shortly be asked to vote on the introduction of an Emissions Trading Scheme. Please take 5 minutes out of your busy schedule to view the attached video. It provides an important lesson in the application of the precautionary principal to environmental policy.
Will you listen to Prince Tim and introduce an ETS along with other regressive taxes and leave Australia in the dark and or will you apply prudence and ask for more evidence?
An ETS will do nothing for the environment and nothing to reduce carbon emissions.
It is up to you!
