On this day in 2007 (it seems) the “Carbon Sense Coalition” put up its first post. It describes itself as “a voluntary group of people concerned about the extent to which carbon is wrongly vilified in Western societies, particularly in government, the media, and in business circles. We aim to restore balance and reason to the carbon debate, and to explain and defend the key role of carbon in production of most of our energy for heat, light, and transportation, and all of our food.”

1989 Review of THE Greenhouse Effect –
Moran, A. 1994. Cool appraisal time for global warming. The Australian Financial Review, 17 June, p. 26.
Global warming is a con. There is no justification for threatening those jobs that depend on coal and thermal power stations, says ALAN MORAN THE greenhouse phenomenon has raised far more hot air than has emerged from global temperature records. Not all agree with this. Greenpeace has launched its “Climate Timebomb” catalogue, claiming documentary evidence of global warming attributable to increased emissions of carbon dioxide.

2009 Turnbull ‘don’t snuggle up’ to Labor…. (see Taylor, 19 June)
Taylor, L. 2009. Opposition tells industry: don’t `snuggle up’ to Labor — Turnbull puts heat on business. The Australian, 19 June, p.1.
MALCOLM Turnbull has attacked big business for “snuggling up” to Labor, demanding business publicly back the Coalition strategy of amending and then passing the government’s emissions trading laws.
In a blunt exchange with about 30 chief executives at a Business Council of Australia breakfast at Parliament House on Wednesday, Mr Turnbull attacked business for being “intimidated” into supporting the government and for failing to publicly push for amendments to the laws.
