    CSG 🙂 no Carbon Tax. Oh the irony…

    In a surprising turnaround, the amount of carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere in the U.S. has fallen dramatically to its lowest level in 20 years, and government officials say the biggest reason is that cheap and plentiful natural gas has led many power plant operators to switch from dirtier-burning coal.

    there’s always a better way than a do nothing for the situation tax.

    they are pulling gas out of the ground and selling it cheaply to asia, instead of making it available to australian’s, they use natural gas in buses but we use butane in our homes, a lot dearer with the excises/gst and soon co2 tax.

    we must be the laughing stock of the world, silly little aussies whipping themselves.

    anyhow mean time we get ready to suffer.

    The GFC and its effect on economic slow downs,would be one of the biggest contributing factors too.
