Have Clive Palmer and Al Gore given Turnbull the last laugh?

Yesterday a climate sceptic with a $6m overdue carbon tax bill, wanting to build one of the world's biggest coal mines, joined up with Al Gore to save the renewable energy sector and, just maybe, even carbon trading from Abbott's axe. One is left grasping for answers and wondering about that dinner with Malcolm.

It is a story truly stranger than fiction and one that has the renewable energy sector celebrating and incumbent electricity suppliers in shock. It could also potentially mean a carbon trading scheme may still yet survive.
