It certainly ain’t to save the planet.
PS And if it’s the media you’re worried about, hey, when I was getting my journo degree, I had Greens member Drew Hutton (Traverston Dam) as a lecturer, Amnesty International-cum-federal Labor member Ross Daniels as a lecturer (he always looked into an empty spot in the lecture hall to acknowledge someone laughing at his jokes or agreeing with his point), hard leftist Gary MacLennan (they’re shit’s the same as our shit, whilst skinhead lesbians in the back corner cheered on) as a lecturer. Google those names.
You ain’t gonna get much perspective out of most MSM these days, guys.
Julia’s carbon tax will put 90% of Australian families on welfare, forever dependent on the whims of the government.
And what will the government-of-the-day do in the future? Increase the carbon tax (already at $2000 per family per year and an increase is guaranteed), and then what? Reduce the compensation?
They will. They will have to. After all, they want us to reduce the way we (not them) live.
In his remarks, Brown confirmed that he will side with Labor to ensure even if Abbott is elected PM with a mandate to rescind the carbon tax and scrap any carbon emissions trading system prior to its commencement that the new PM would not be able to pass his agenda.
This is gonna be a rough ride, folks.
