Today was a historic day for Australia, with our Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, introducing the carbon price legislation to Parliament. This legislation will see the top 500 most polluting companies pay $23 per tonne of carbon emissions they emit during their operations.
The coming weeks will certainly be an interesting period of debate in the Australian Parliament. The public should be ready for the smear campaigns that will be had instead of addressing the real questions and debate that could be had to bring awareness and understanding of the issues, complexities and ramifications of this legislation for our country.
Other posts that I have previously written on the carbon tax are: A short summary on the Australian carbon tax and Carbon tax - how will it cost you.
Happy Parliament watching!
