Lack of any diligence and detail in government policy lets us all down.

When you dig a little deeper into The Green-Labor Coalition Government policy to find where this number of the 500 biggest Australian polluters comes from, it reveals a dangerous government pattern.

There isn’t any exact list of the exact companies that has come from any in depth technical analysis.

Neither has anyone actually looked at those companies in any detail, to consider what the actual effect this policy will have on jobs, or on costs or even what affect all this will have on the target issue of carbon dioxide production.

The number 500 polluters is a number that has just been pulled out of the hot thin rarefied air in the corridors of Canberra somewhere.

No detailed planning.  No in depth community or industry consultation.  

No certainty for industry, or investors, and no Government policy or plan to let us know what happens when these big companies just split themselves into smaller companies to get further down the list.

This is your Federal Government working for Australians.  Working....

Carbon debate has just begun

IF you read the Gillard government's $4 million mail-out last week about what a carbon price means for you, one lingering question remains unanswered. How will a carbon tax on the Australian economy combat global warming?
The government informs us, more than once, that the carbon tax will "cut 160 million tonnes of pollution from the atmosphere each year". But not once does the government inform us by how much the carbon tax will reduce global temperatures. The reason for the silence is simple. The carbon tax will make no difference to global temperatures.
And that explains why the debate about a carbon tax is far from over.
