Ride The Talk

Support for a price on pollution

There has been a lot of talk in the mass media lately about the proposed carbon tax in Australia.

I believe that a lot of it has been said with a view to selling newspapers and getting viewers/listeners than to honestly informing the public.

  • Does it concern you that climate scientists have been telling us for DECADES that we need to reduce the amount of carbon we put into the air and yet that amount is still rising!
  • Has the recent unprecedented extreme flooding in Queensland, Victoria, New South Wales & Tasmania made you stop and wonder what’s going on?
  • Does it worry you that just last year Australia was into the tenth year of drought (and that Western Australia is still in it)?
  • Does the severity of Cyclone Yasi make you quiver?
