Come in Spinner

Labor continues to suffer the delusion that the number one problem with this carbon tax is the way they’re selling it. While that’s part of it, there are more important reasons as to why it has been so harshly rejected by the public. These include:

  • the fact that we were lied to about not getting it.
  • the fact that it can do nothing for the climate
  • the fact that the rest of the world has been effectively stagnant in cutting emissions
  • the jobs that will be lost
  • the hit on the average household budget

It is pure arrogance that Labor dismiss these concerns, instead blaming their marketing tactics. Hence, they have established a dedicated propaganda team, with our money, to convince us to want a tax that we don’t want.

The federal government has set up a special unit to pitch its carbon-pricing policy, which polls show has failed to gain much traction among voters.

An Essential Media opinion poll released on Monday found 53 per cent of voters opposed the plan – the highest figure recorded against the program since a broad outline was revealed in March.

A document tabled at a Senate estimates hearing this week showed that in July the Labor government set up a five-person PR unit reporting to Climate Change Minister Greg Combet.

Liberal frontbencher Eric Abetz said today taxpayers should not have to fund a Labor “propaganda” unit, particularly given the impending carbon tax would break a Labor election promise.

“What this does in the minds of the Australian people is add insult to injury,” he said.

Warnie would be proud.

About Climate Nonconformist

Hi, I'm the climatenonconformist (not my real name), and I am a global warming skeptic, among the few in generation Y. With Australia facing the prospect of a carbon tax, we need to be asking the simple question; where is the evidence that our emissions are causing any dangerous warming?
