Compare Labor's precise plan, reducing carbon emissions by 43 per cent in 2030, with Scott Morrison's projected target of 26 to 28 per cent by the same date and it looks, for a moment, as if there's a real contrast. There is - until it comes to the hip pocket. That's because both parties are busy assuring us that their programs won't cost a cent. Nothing can stand in the way of winning the election we're speeding towards in the first third of the coming year.
