Environmental Rat-Holes, Part 1

The Australian carbon tax, the aim of which is to reduce the country's emissions by 5%, is slated to cost the taxpayers of that country $160 billion. Being that Australia only produces 1.2% of the world's total CO2 emissions, the tax would only cut global CO2 emissions by .06%, and so instead of the atmospheric CO2 level being 410 ppm by the end of the decade it will only be 409.988 ppm, and instead of the temperature being X it'll be X - .00005 of a degree C. Yeah, that's a real huge "greening". LOL
