Most Aussies don't want carbon tax says poll

A majority of Australians are opposed to the carbon tax a Lowy poll has found showing the Aussie public has much more sense than their government. It is hard to believe the idiocy of imposing a punishing new tax on the economy while the world economy is tottering on the precipice.

AUSTRALIANS have turned on the carbon tax, with almost two-thirds of people opposed to pricing greenhouse gas emissions and an overwhelming majority backing Coalition plans to unravel the policy.
The findings confirm Australians are far less concerned about global warming than five years ago, with only a third of Australians supporting aggressive measures to tackle global warming - down from more than twice that figure in 2006.



  1. Maybe ordinary Australians aren't as scientifically ignorant as they were - as the clowns in Canberra still are. Not that JuLIAR the Claytons PM until November 2013 has the slightest interest in what the electorate thinks.

    PS: Any chance of using Captchas on this site which are human-readable?

  2. What about the opposition's Direct Action Policy which is taxpayer funded "carbon tax" scheme vs Gillards which is a polluter funded scheme. Both parties have a bi-partisan approach to reduce emissions by 5% by 2020 which is a cost. Abbott's scheme has been costed higher and I'd rather see polluters taxed than taxpayers. You can see details of the Liberal Carbon tax on their website.

  3. Wouldn't it be good if we could remove all CO2 pollution from the atmosphere and oceans? The fact that all plant life and therefore animal life would instantly cease to exist would be a small price to pay to keep the greenies happy.

  4. There are obviously two people posting here. How about a bit of imagination with your names so we can differentiate with our responses. For Anonymous Abbott's scheme has been costed at a couple of billion dollars because that is all they are going to spend. An Abbott government will delay any real action until the problem goes away as they don't believe in the global warming scam.

  5. Still no actual data exists to show carbon dioxide being the major driver of global temperatures. Science is being led by politics, not emperical data. Science is dead.
