The new treasury data shows the impact of a carbon tax on the emissions-intensive industries that would be negligible compared with the pressure caused by the fluctuating Australian dollar. At the National University’s Crawford school of government in a recent report entitled. In the report the attempts to put into the perspective a claim by the minerals council of Australia that a carbon trading system would cut by around 24,000 people, the number than would be employed in the mining industry. Something like 370,000 people every month go from not having a job to having a job and something like 365,000 people every month do the opposite. That is the change every month, the minerals council has projected its change over a period of ten years. To call that invisible, the additional outflow would be five people for every 10,000 who would have left in the month anyway, they are happy to call that is invisible, they are going to draw a graph of it for the report but they couldn’t, they cannot draw a graph because the effect is too tiny.
The carbon price debate should have nothing to do with the jobs loss figures, the labor market market issue should be seen top be irrelevant, it is not interesting, it is not something they should spend any further effort analyzing. On the carbon content of fuels, a carbon tax is an environmental tax that is levied. It is a form of carbon pricing, the carbon atoms are present in every fossil fuel and are released as carbon dioxide when they are burnt. In the contrast, non combustion energy source, wind, sunlight, hydrocarbons to carbon dioxide. By the taxing the burning of fossil fuels, the carbon tax can be implemented. The burning of fossils fuels, coal, petroleum products such as gasoline and aviation fuel and natural gas in proportion to their carbon content. The political debate mostly carried on by the parties with the vested commercial interests, this is the first time in the history that the companies will have the account for the carbon when they do their annual accounts.
A lot more involved than simply turning off the lights is going green, the changing to energy efficient light globes, using double sided photo copy paper, not throwing waste into the sewage system, recycling or designing buildings that work with the nature to heat up or cool down as the case may be although that at least is a start. To realize their impact on the planet is their need, David Suzuki the much admired environmental scientist, remind them that it is because of the size of the human. They do not know their own strength, there so many of them that have become disconnected to the earth. The future depends on choices, on the choices that they have made in the past and those that they will make today and in the future. They cannot continue the exceptional growth of the last half of the 20th century without experiencing consequences.
