Feds should take over GHG issues from the States

With ignoramuses like McTiernan in charge of " Planning and Infrastructure" it is time for the Commonwealth to take over on the grounds that they just don't get GreenHouse Gas related issues. It also certainly appears that with the Victorian government with respect to a coal fired power station. Mc T's latest plan is this
1. The railway line to continue to Yanchep
2. The railway line to continue to Bunbury
3. A train line to Ellenbrook
4. A train line to the airport.
Is this a sign of integrated public transport and city planning for Perth ? I don't think so , when energy costs go up an order of magnitude what use will a train to the airport be. This is bizarre middle class welfare of the worst sort.
