A point of interdiction - the IPCC hasn't / didn't drop the climate change projections in AR5.

What is new is that IPCC has also studied climate mitigation scenarios. The blue RCP2.6 is such a scenario with strong emissions reduction. With this scenario global warming can be stopped below 2 ° C.
You might want to think again about your claim that Apple and Virgin Airlines "companies were the exact ones that claimed the Australian govt needed their heads read for introducing a CO2 tax before the rest of the major global economies" because to the casual observer you just seem to make this stuff up LOL.
Virgin CEO Richard Branson said that those who are skeptical of man-made global warming should “get out of our way,” joining the ranks of CEOs lashing out against those opposed to business investments in “sustainability.”
Richard Branson: Global warming deniers
"Qantas believes that the mainstream science of climate change is correct - human activities are having an impact on our climate, and this potentially poses a risk to our environment, the community and the economy."
Carbon Pricing | Qantas
BTW the reason Qantas isn't worse off due to the Australian carbon "tax" is that when it is removed, rather Qantas will be financially penalised when flying into Europe for operating from a country that does not have a carbon price scheme:
