Can we talk our way into reducing emissions?

Crikey readers talk corruption, changing our habits to fight climate change, and what can be done about the Labor Party.

Les Heimann writes: Re. “Faulkner’s retirement shows NSW Labor has learnt nothing” (yesterday). Bernard Keane’s view of NSW branch preselection “faction fix” may well be the correct conspiracy theory. However, his article lacks genuine rigour.

    Les Heimann talks about the need for rigour in analyses then spends the remaining 80% of his message waffling and dreaming about some kind of grassroots democratic revolution in a party that is frozen solid around its power brokers?

    Can’t have it both ways, Les – either dream OR be rigorous.
