Carbon [Dioxide] Tax Down-Under

“In the words of Jo Nova, Australia will — bar asteroid impact — get it’s Carbon Tax on Tuesday, the Herald Sun editorializes this is likely to make the world a dirtier place while companies continue listing projects that will fail to proceed due to hot air taxation… “

BTW – This blog is about science, defending science against the Green spiritualist attacks on it. I have always suggested a revenue neutral (reduce other taxes as when the GST came along) carbon tax on this blog as a way of innocently appeasing the greenies, we do have petrol taxes already. This is not a revenue neutral carbon tax. It is “a price on carbon” specifically designed to reduce our fuel consumption by rationing it for the elite and it gets worse and worse as time goes by. It provides only temporary relief for the disadvantaged. It morphs into a draconian emmision trading scheme. The only demonstrated “alternative” “sustainable” energy scources are nuclear and hydro, if new science and technology does not magically materialise very soon we are in big trouble in the land downunder.

If you are a foriegn government, tempted to emulate this, I’d suggest you watch this doomed experiment and what happens to this Greens/ALP government a bit longer before you act.

  1. Hi Grant,
    I feel a lot of Aussies don’t really understand how this is going to impact of thier lives. This will be a HUGE impact, especially where power is concerned, the increase in power prices as we have already seen impacts on everything we buy, everything needs electricity, right down to the warehouses company’s use to store items, all these extra costs will be passed on.

    Do people relize that the carbon tax will go up every year?
    Take a look at this piece written in the ABC.
    The carbon price is to start at $23 per tonne from July next year and will go up at 2.5 per cent a year above the rate of inflation.

    People really need to think about that rise, above the rate of inflation and realize that the compensation package does not last forever, and will not rise.
