And we now see a department with a split personality.
One part of the department seeking to implement an emissions trading scheme with the aim to reduce carbon emissions
a second part of the department seeking to install insulation with the effect on increasing carbon emissions (see article by Hedley Thomas in the Australian of 26 February 2010 Woolly claims on insulation and that of Henry Ergas Energy Efficient, Benefit Deficient).
Only it seems that the insulation part of the department has been more successful in increasing emissions than the other part of the department has been in reducing emissions given the CPRS is dead.
Canberra is now Constantinople under the Byzantine Empire.
