The Rudd Clark Climate Thing

Rudd and Clark have done their thing at the Climate Change conference in Auckland. There was no announcement on the ETS, indeed those interpreting her comments and body language suggested that the PM was being extra careful not to build expectations that she has the numbers to proceed with the legislation. Have the Greens or NZ First pulled support, or have the Government negotiators been excessively optimistic? We understand that last night Winston and Mr Henry were extremely uncomfortable about the question from Russel Norman. And Russel (our new hero here at The Hive) certainly didn't hold back from asking the question that NZ First did not want answered.
