Carbon price (tax) explained for dummies (right wingers)
« on: August 03, 2012, 06:47:54 PM »
Ok so you have two businesses, A and B. Both businesses emit the same amount of pollution and thus pay the same Carbon price. Business A decides that they will innovate and come up with a way to emit less, while business B is happy to continue destroying the atmosphere. By using better and cleaner technology business A is able to reduce its emmisions by 50% meaning not only are they doing the right thing by the environment but they can also offer their customers cheaper prices because they no longer have to pay as much for carbon, thus making the 'greener' business A far more competitive than the bigger emmiter business B.

See? The carbon price clearly WORKS no matter what spin phoney Tony wants to put on it. And that line of his that the carbon price won't reduce emmisions? Absolute lie. Australias emmisions may still rise with a carbon price, BUT the will increase by LESS than they would without the carbon price. Let's remember that Abbott is also pledging to reduce emmisions by 5% by 2020, which would have the exact same outcome.

Now if only someone from the ALP could explain it like I just did they wouldn't have a problem! Explain the scheme and expose Abbotts lies.

How is it a lie if Aussie emmisions will still rise even with the carbon tax?

Well put RightIswrong, the carbon plan hasn't been explained well by labor at all it's 90% of their problem. Labor hasn't explained it well so too many people listen to abbotts scare campaign which is much easier to understand, no matter how false it may be.

If this is the best argument against pricing carbon you can come up with then that's not much of an argument. For a start I voted green, I voted for the carbon price so the 'lie' argument won't work with me buddy. Second, Gillard didn't lie - she does NOT lead the government alone, it's a minority government therefore all bets are off and she had to work with the parliament that we (that includes you) voted for.
