Royal Commission into Climate Change

Letter from Steve Fielding;

As you would have heard by now the Australian Parliament voted against
the Government’s Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme (CPRS) on
Wednesday of last week.

Whether you agree or disagree with global warming or a CPRS, the fact
is most Australians still have many questions they want answered
before any emissions trading scheme is passed by our Federal

1) Is the science right? (in other words, are we certain that
man-made carbon dioxide emissions are the leading cause of climate

2) What effect will the CPRS have on the Australian economy?
(especially if we commit to targets before the rest of the world and
major economies like China, Russia, India and the USA)

3) What are the costs and the benefits of alternative emissions
trading schemes? (is there a more effective way to achieve emission
reductions than the government’s CPRS)

I have proposed a Royal Commission to investigate the science behind
climate change and whether or not man made carbon dioxide emissions
are responsible, and the Productivity Commission to look into the
economics of an emissions trading scheme or carbon pollution reduction

This is the most important piece of legislation to come before
Parliament given its direct impact on every single Australian. We
should be taking the time to get it right.

We fight not to enslave, but to set a country free, and to make room upon the earth for honest men to live in. Thomas Paine

Above all, we must realize that no arsenal or no weapon in the arsenals of the world is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. RONALD REAGAN,
My definition of a free society is a society where it is safe to be unpopular. Adlai E. Stevenson Jr
If you want to be free, there is but one way; it is to guarantee an equally full measure of liberty to all your neighbors. There is no other. Carl Schurz
The First Amendment is often inconvenient. But that is besides the point. Inconvenience does not absolve the government of its obligation to tolerate speech. Justice Anthony Kennedy
Self-reliance is the only road to true freedom, and being one’s own person is its ultimate reward. Patricia Sampson
Many politicians are in the habit of laying it down as a self-evident proposition that no people ought to be free till they are fit to use their freedom. The maxim is worthy of the fool in the old story who resolved not to go into the water till he had learned to swim. Thomas Macaulay
The law will never make men free, it is men that have to make the law free. Henry David Thoreau
If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter. George Washington
