"In order to prevent hurricanes in Florida, why not pay someone to shoot a camel in Australia? " -- Tom Nelson

Australia’s CO2 rules may lead to sinking of desert ships

Killing camels to earn carbon credits might seem an extreme way to fight climate change, but the Australian government has issued rules that will help investors do just that.
Adelaide-based Northwest Carbon, a carbon project developer, has developed the rules, or methodology, governing a strict camel culling programme that would also cut greenhouse gas emissions.

Why has the Australian government allowed the population of a large pest to increase to over a million? Overprotection, perhaps?

I prefer the Hollywood method of just paying a guy to pay another guy to pretend to plant a tree someplace.

It's just as effective and a lot easier.

So, for liberals, culling is bad... until it's good? I guess the Palin-haters can lay off the attacks on her re: hunting. Caribou farts must be pretty bad for the environment as well. What did I read (and where?) that biodegradable materials produce Carbon? Environmentalists are chasing their own freaking tails.

Fortunately this wretched excuse for a Federal government is about on the same time table to destruction as the current US administration, and if anything its demise will be even more spectacular. We had a preview in the NSW state election just recently.
