Carbon Tax - A black hole into which money will be poured
Australia faces possibility of a carbon tax with feisty debate.
It is interesting that in Australia there is very heated debate about a proposed carbon tax, whilst in the UK there was virtually no debate about the Climate Change Bill or the recently imposed changes to our own carbon tax. Their big worry is that it will make their industry less competitive while having no impact on climate change.
An interview by Adrian Bolt on the Steve Price Show of Jill Duggan revealed some serious issues with the lack of clarity behind the system being implemented in the UK. Jill Duggan , European Commission Directorate General of Climate Action, exposed her ignorance when challenged about the costs and benefits of Britain’s rush to a ‘green’ economy.
You have to hand it to the Australians - they know how to conduct a civilised interview and get to the crux of the problem.
