The Prime Minister has been going around calling carbon dioxide pollution:
"By setting a limit on how much carbon pollution Australian industry and business can emit, the Government will set a limit on the number of pollution permits available to meet that target and let the market decide how they are allocated."..
CO2 is a colorless, orderless gas a natural part of the atmosphere just like water vapor is . Unless inhaled if far greater concentration then what is being discussed in relation to global warming, it will not poison you. Its plant food and the stuff that makes beer bubbles. With out carbon dioxide we would starve.
That he has to resort to such misleading rhetoric shows the problems he is having trying to sell his ETS.
