The Snowy Mountain Scheme: what Labor giveth, Labor taketh away
Quite astonishing that Julia Gillard likened her carbon tax to the Snowy Mountain scheme insofar at how momentous it is.
It’s funny because the Snowy Mountain Hydro scheme is on her bucket list of the top 250 “big polluders”.
The Snowy Mountain scheme was started by Labor, and yet it is Labor driving the first nail into its coffin.
And wasn’t hydro electricity meant to be pretty clean and green, anyway?
What a farce. And it doesn’t end there.
Remember when it was 1000 companies that would have to pay? And then it was watered down to 500? And now it’s 250?
And mere days in, there’s talk of that $23 per tonne being watered down to $15.
It makes you wonder if this government has a clue about what it stands for, and what it’s doing.
