Letter to the Editor
I am seriously wondering whether or not the general public realizes that the introduction of the carbon price on 1st July will actually be fully compensated to most Australians and the balance of the revenue raised by it will go towards establishing much more renewable energy for Australia in the fight against dangerous climate change.
In the past few years I have witnessed first hand in my our suburb and surrounding suburbs the uptake of solar water heating devices and solar power panels by ordinary Australians wishing to cut greenhouse gases to help the planet and simultaneously help themselves by lowering their cost of living by paying off these energy and money saving devices.
As we go forward and more and more Australians understand the benefits of renewable energy, contrary to Tony Abbott’s scare campaign are realizing that there is nothing to fear from the price on carbon. I believe as Australians wake up to the fact that Tony Abbott has tried to dupe them, and treat them like mugs that they will be increasingly angry with him, and finally see that he is a hollow man with no policies of his own with which to guide this great nation. He will be punished at the next federal election for his arrogance and lack of concern for his fellow Australian.
