Apparently there’s a "Greenhouse Mafia" in Australia, consisting of industry lobbyists and bureaucrats who used to be industry lobbyists, exercising immense power over Australian climate policy, insuring that the public remains in the dark about climate change and that the government does nothing to address it.

Deltoid has lots of links. So does Peak Energy.

When I first read about this, my reaction was, "wow, I wish somebody would do an investigative piece on America’s greenhouse mafia." And then I remembered: In the U.S., there’s no secret to be uncovered. It’s all right out in the open.
