Australia's dark ages; Irish Enlightenment

It's a great day for the Irish! Even as the Australian Parliament condemns Australia to poverty, black-outs and a return to the Dark Ages, the Irish Times reports:

Hogan shifts policy on climate change as Bill 'not a priority'

HARRY McGEE, Political Correspondent

A RADICAL shift in policy on climate change is to be outlined by Minister for the Environment Phil Hogan today, when he announces that a climate change Bill is not a priority.
It signals a major change from the policy of his predecessor John Gormley, who rushed to publish legislation setting binding statutory targets for emissions reductions in the weeks before the previous government collapsed last January.

The Irish have more intelligence than the Australian Parliament who cheered and clapped as they brought down a tax that will kill Australian prosperity.
