Global warming costs

We don't have an ETS but the global warming scare is going to cost us more anyway:

ALL Australian homes will soon have to undergo a mandatory energy-efficiency assessment costing up to $1500 per property.

The assessment has to be done before any property can be sold or rented under new laws to tackle carbon emissions.

The mandatory assessment - being drafted into law by the federal and state governments - will rate homes by an energy efficiency star system, similar to the ratings given to fridges and washing machines.

Another cost to be passed on to home buyers and renters.
