464 comments Good spin Costello! The question then is-why Howard, Abbott and you were advocating forthe Carbon Tax at the 2007 election? Thank you for your kindness,for not testing our intelligence-the lesser mortals- for notcomparing the Carbon Tax with python squeeze is more poisonous thanthe Cobra bite like Abbott has compared. Commenter Kattooparambil Location Melbourne Date and time June 06, 2012, 7:54AM Agree, total spin here. Any tax measure has an economic effect. Thejustification for this economic policy could not be clearer, movethe economy to lower carbon output. All the economists say this isthe best way to do it. |
Meanwhile the Coalition seem to have no economic policy exceptpromising tax cuts and removing taxes while balancing the bookswith less revenue. I suspect their carbon plan and tax cuts are noncore promises - ditched on election. Commenter MG Location Date and time June 06, 2012, 8:52AM Kattoo, so are you suggesting that they will be an economic outcomefrom the Carbon Tax? There will be for India and other nations whowill receive $3 Billion Australian tax Payer Dollars per year topurchase Carbon Credits. Me thinks that $3 Billion a year is a bigsqueeze, python like or not. Commenter Colin Location Date and time June 06, 2012, 8:52AM Its all a load of hog wash anyway, how can this country make anydifference when our biggest industry is digging holes in the groundand selling millions of tons of coal to China.
What do these idiotic progressives think happens to the stuff, theChinese don't turn it into Won Tons they burn it. Commenter SteveH. Location Date and time June 06, 2012, 9:02AM Hmm, are you one on the 26% still backing labor or are you one ofgillards paid spin doctors? what was it again- she employed a couple of hundred spin doctorswith Australian's taxation dollars while she cut the number ofcustoms officials at airports. Must oppose free speech but letpeople smugglers in hey? I just can't fathom how you could support roxon attempting to hidewhat minsters are spending? How can you possibly allow that tooccur when we've seen what thomson got away with at the hsu? Just tell us how you as an Australian can justify roxon's newattempt to dupe the people? It's just beyond belief that you want thomson let off the hook andyou now want labor ministers to get away with spending whateverthey want. why do you support this new attempt by this failed labor governmentto cover up its actions? # Disclosure = accountability Commenter Alex Location Finley Date and time June 06, 2012, 9:18AM I'm sure you would have found a Howard carbon tax would have fallenunder the "non core" promises catergory Commenter Horus Location Sydney Date and time June 06, 2012, 9:33AM @Kattooparambil.
Yes, that is a question. An idiotic question thatI'll answer for you nonetheless. That's because that was beforeCopenhagen when there was a prospect of an international ETS(including the worlds largest emitter, China). That would've meantthat jobs wouldn't be exported offshore to lower taxing countriesbecause we'd all be in the same boat.
Post-Copenhagen, that is nolonger the case and when the carbon tax is ramped up here,manufacturing will move to China where it's even cheaper due to notax (or any other country that doesn't have a carbon tax if Chinadoes happen to sign up). This will actually lead to an INCREASE inemissions because the other country is likely even more energyinefficient than the Australian manufacturing job it replaced, butstill occurred due to a tax imbalance. Mate, you really should try to understand the fundamentals of anissue before making uninformed posts. Commenter LiamH Location Date and time June 06, 2012, 9:33AM Alex, I suspect the Opposition don't want details of all theirspending to be thrashed about in the media all day long either.
Commenter jofek Location Date and time June 06, 2012, 9:34AM I wouldn't call it 'spin'. I think his article is very honest and hits the nail on the head.Costello raises some valid points. The lefts climate apocalypse has never come into fruition. Climatechange is a scam.
The article says - "Rudd called climate change the "greatmoral challenge of our generation". This is nothing more than moral corruption from the left.
