Economy Doomed

Opposition Leader Kevin Rudd has committed Labor to a 60 per cent reduction in carbon emissions by 2050 if elected to Government.

60 reduction? how?

Terry McCrann explains:

A target to cut total emissions by 60 per cent would mean something like a 90 per cent reduction in emissions per person or per unit of economic output.

Just think of that in personal terms. Could you really cut petrol use by 90 per cent? Electricity? And then essentially 90 per cent of everything else?

Looks like we'll have to shut down the internet
