  1. Living in Kalgoorlie – Boulder, our City Council is somehow on the Carbon Tax list, Our city council? We do not recycle a great deal, but freighting to Perth to recycle, relies on the internal combustion engine, and produces “carbon pollution”.

  2. You may think it is funny to mock the blaming of a carbon tax on the Australian economy with 39 sarcastic problems that we could try and blame on the carbon tax, however, there are people losing their jobs, small businesses going broke, people getting into more and more debt everyday and all for a political ideology that has being legislated into a tax by a government who lied to the electorate. Now that isn’t funny and certainly not worthy of satire.
