Gippsland is an area that includes power generation with brown coal. The people there are not especially prosperous. Because things have been left so late, we are in the position that our contribution to the cure for global warming (an emissions carbon credit scheme thingo) will make more expensive such things as fuel (and therefore everything) that ordinary people are already having trouble with. So there was a big swing against the government.

The Garnaut Report kinda said that as we let things go on without remedy, the options before us become much less palatable. I imagine this will be a general pattern worldwide.

I wonder if the people who think global warming is junk science will be first to be in favour of a scientific fix for the global climate....firing suphur into the stratosphere and so on.
