The danger in Abbott's double-dissolution

With Labor now almost certainly sticking to its guns on climate policy, Tony Abbott seems destined for a double dissolution amid rising support for carbon pricing.

It took nearly two weeks, but Bill Shorten on Thursday finally put to rest rumours on both sides of parliament that he was trying to build support for a Labor backflip on carbon pricing.

The speculation, reported by Business Spectator on May 17, prompted environmental group Lighter Footprints to contact Shorten’s office to express their concern at such a possibility.
