'Market solutions' threaten climate catastrophe

"I'm just, I'm a little concerned with all this hysteria over this
greenhouse gases and the environment, that the Liberal Party is not
selling your message the way you sold it now to Leon, and that it's not
getting through to the average man in the street" — this is what
"Emile", an "unashamed supporter" of Prime Minister John Howard, had to
say to the PM on November 2, during Leon Byner's talkback show on
Adelaide's Radio 5AA. » http://www.greenleft.org.au/2006/689/35805
