On Ross Garnaut
The dude is a real piece of work. As a professor at Australian National University and the author of the Garnaut Report on climate change and emissions trading, the man has been a consistent critic of industry and a self-described champion of fighting carbon "pollution". Unfortunately, and as is all too often the case, the deeds of his personal life are an altogether different story. The fellow not only owns a cattle farm in which massive amounts of methane are being added to the atmosphere, he also presides over not one but two mining companies (Lihir Gold Ldt. and Ok Tedi Mining Ltd.) that are both dumping millions of tonnes of waste and tailings into the ocean....A true champion of environmentalism? Yeah, right.
