The abdication of climate policy

The introduction of carbon pricing has become a convenient excuse for state governments to cancel climate programs and cut staff. This may not have been such a problem if the carbon price was going to work as intended, but that's unlikely.

Over the last six to nine months we have witnessed a very slow, but cumulatively large, abdication by state and federal governments from policy to reduce carbon emissions. It has crept up not through one big bang event, but rather a dropped program here, a tweak there and a few staff cuts to top it off.
