Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
as many here have repeatedly pointed out, we need a massive carbon tax, this cap and trade is subsidising little good, and enabling continued high levels of pollution unchecked.

right now taxes subsidise all kinds of unecological enterprises, this presses on the brakes for positive radical change, which can only make headway if  governments sponsor and subsidise small footprint solutions.

chains of corruption slow down the states' response to the peoples' real needs, so we should push for ever more accountability and transparency. _the whole planet's getting Katrina'd, check out s.e. india, one and a half people homeless from these last floods.

it's scandalous how little attention is paid to reports like this!

great catch, canberra boy, recc'd...

great to have another correspondent in oz.
