Crikey on Fielding

Last time I wrote about Senator Fielding’s tour to the US to listen to both sides of the debate on climate change.

Crikey suggests that climate change now is not about the science anymore but about mitigation and thinking of this like insurance.

I think that’s a fair call. However, how do we solve the issue if we do not understand the cause?

What is the mitigation strategy? Is it carbon taxes or building a better economy?

As Schelling suggests, the best mitigation strategy for poor countries is to become a developed economy.

So, what should Australia do?
