Carbon injection objection

Carbon sequestration has begun in Australia. Not everyone likes it:

The project "is government-funded PR for the coal sector and would be a perfect place to start for a government looking to find budget cuts," Green Party Sen. Christine Milne said.

We see here the contours of future political battles worldwide: industry that wants to get tough on global warming, versus environmental groups that dislike industrial solutions. It's a conflict that will be hard for enviros to win, having succeeded perhaps too well in raising public awareness of the problem.
