Discontent in Labor ranks about ETS: Fielding
A key crossbench senator claims there is discontent in Labor ranks about the Rudd Government's planned emissions trading scheme.

"There is no doubt there are senators in the Labor Party who have reservations," Family First's Steve Fielding said of the Government's carbon pollution reduction scheme.

His claim came as Prime Minister Kevin Rudd accused the Coalition of being a "divided rabble" over a pending Senate vote.

In the U.S. the legal definition of sparkling wine is one which contains 0.392 g of carbon dioxide per 100 mL of wine, the equivalent of about one atmosphere of gas. Most Champagnes contain about four atmospheres of carbon dioxide. The legal distinction is important because sparkling wine is taxed at about $3.70 per gallon while "still" wine is taxed at about $0.37 per gallon!
