With agreement from Dana and JC, I have drafted a post to cover the legislation for a price on carbon emissions by the Australian Parliament on Tuesday. Click here for the post. Comments welcome. We should aim to have it ready for publication on Friday.

John, It would be good if I could edit this. The font for the first sub heading needs to be fixed, and the photo needs 10 to 15 pixels of vertical space.

"In Australia, the Leader of the Opposition, Tony Abbott, has acknowledged how much he has been influenced by the misinformer Ian Plimer, who is a serial misinformer."

I'm sure Abbott has not referred to Plimer as a misinformer!

John,

The blog post is ready for publication. The legislation passed on Tuesday. Can we post this by tomorrow (Friday, Australia time) so that it is still timely?

Neal's point is valid, so I have gone with "Tony Abbott, has acknowledged how much he has been influenced by Ian Plimer, who is a notorious misinformer." I am comfortable with "notorious". If you are not, we can use "well known".

We can publish today/tonight.  Rob's got 2 posts tomorrow, so that would make more sense.

Dana,

I agree. Publishing Nov 10 (afternnoon Sydney time) / Nov 9 (evening California time) is better for me and SkS readers. I need another hour to add some quotes. I'll let you know when the final version is ready to go.
