Single-desk carbon trade 'could earn billions'

Malcolm Turnbull, the Opposition Leader, said yesterday the Opposition would vote down the Government’s emissions trading scheme when it came to the vote in the Senate next month unless the Government accepted nine broad changes to the policy outlined last week, including the inclusion of biochar.

But speaking to the Herald yesterday Mr Flannery hit out at the Liberal Party, saying the ‘‘rump’’ of climate sceptics in the party were marching it to electoral defeat based on a flawed climate-change policy.

‘‘That is just stupid and they need to move on … Malcolm is trying to move them on, though not as effectively as we would like to see,’’ Mr Flannery said. ‘‘How stupid could you be? They will lose at least 20 seats if there is a double-dissolution election.’’
