Institute of public apathy

THANKS, Chris Berg, for devoting an entire column to implying that the failure of one government subsidised solar power company in the US means renewable energy doesn't work. You dismissed a carbon price or tax as government intervention in the market, and even managed to squeeze in a paragraph pointing out that the federal opposition's entire climate change policy rests on such schemes.

So what does the Institute of Public Affairs recommend we do about climate change and moving to renewable energy sources when non-renewables run out? Presumably nothing.
