On Global Warming and Emissions Trading
Voelte and Woodside Petroleum, one of the world's largest producers of Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) has been voluble critics of the Australian government's proposed emissions trading scheme, the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme. 'We shouldn't be in the emissions trading scheme at all, we should be seen as a fuel that is part of the solution, not part of the problem," he told the Australian Finanial Review in February 2009. "We don't understand why the government is wanting to act early. We don't want to be a leader, lets be a fast follower and wait to see what happens in Copenhagen," he said.
