Country Alliance – Carbon Tax policy

Carbon tax

Country Alliance does not support the introduction of a carbon tax. The tax will place a further burden on Australia’s economy and achieve little or no environmental benefits. Similar schemes have been rejected in the US, Asia and much of Europe where there has already been consistent failure by nations to honour their Kyoto Protocol promises.

· With this complete lack of international commitment, Australia will be at a significant competitive disadvantage and place employment at risk.
· The proposed compensation measures are short term and will have little effect on consumption and the associated increase energy costs which will have a significant flow-on effect throughout the Australian economy.
