Professor Wendy Bacon (Head, Journalism Program, UTS) commented:
"This is an excellent article and shows up the weaknesses of
Australian journalism. It is one thing to quote sources saying things
that are demonstrably false but the journalism who has evidence can
simply put these in context. The article really takes the debate forward
and should be widely shared. It also shows why an outlet like New
Matilda is so important!!"
I posted the following germane comments about the article, the Gillard
Labor Carbon Tax and the highly deficient Australian climate change and
Carbon Tax debate:
"The Gillard Labor Carbon Tax is a gross perversion of the kind of
serious Carbon Tax such as that proposed by top climate scientist Dr
James Hansen of NASA's GISS that involves a meaningful tax on fossil
fuels at the mine gate with all receipts being given to citizens (see
James Hansen , "It's Possible To Avert The Climate Crisis",
Countercurrents, 29 November 2009: http://www.countercurrents.org/hansen291109.htm
Thus consider the following reductio ad absurdum: Australia's
Domestic plus Exported greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution in 2010 in million
tonnes of CO2-e (Mt CO2-e) was 578 (Domestic) + 803 (coal exports) + 34
(LNG exports) for a total of 1,415 Mt CO2-3 (this excludes GHG pollution
inherent in iron ore exports that totalled 293 Mt CO2-e in 2010) (see Dr
Gideon Polya, "2011 Climate Change Course": https://sites.google.com/site/300orgsite/2011-climate-change-course
. At $23 per tonne CO2-e the Carbon Tax receipts SHOULD be 1,414 Mt
CO2-e x $23/t CO2-e = $32,522 million = $32.5 billion annually but IN
REALITY receipts will only be about $10 billion pa of which about 90% is
given back to industrial and domestic consumers as price rise
compensation in what is known in Biochemistry as a "futile
I am thus, for example, blocked from commenting on the Carbon Tax on the
Australian taxpayer-funded ABC Late Night Live or on the Australian
taxpayer-funded The Conversation while being a much published, 5 decade
career scientist in an area intimately related to the problem of
man-made climate change and its solution."
