If you care for the planet and the future

A VOTE for the Barnaby Joyce will be a vote for a further three years of Australia going backwards.

The LNP crow about axing the carbon tax – remember, it was going to cut electricity costs by $550 per household.

ABC fact check shows that, dependent on which state you live in, the actual saving on electricity is between $100 and $200 per annum.

From a budget viewpoint, the carbon tax raised $6.6 billion in 2012/13, paid by the 348 polluters, with 2013/14 projected to be $7.2 billion before the LNP axed it.

Under the LNP, we are now paying these polluters at a cost, so far, of $1.7 billion.

The result of the LNP Direct Action Policy is carbon emissions in 201415 have actually increased by1 per cent over the previous year.

So, we have a policy that is ineffective and has punched a hole of $15 billion in the budget.

As a climate change denier, Mr Joyce would no doubt be unconcerned about emission increases, but I am sure many farmers and citizens in New England would be well aware of the cost of global warming and the effect it can have on growing seasons, crop yields, through to changes in average temperatures, rainfall, and climate extremes (e.g., heatwaves) and changes in pests and diseases.

Global warming is going to be the major challenge facing Australia and the recent coral bleaching and resultant death of coral on the Great Barrier Reef is the canary in the coal mine.

Inaction now will provide a massive burden for future generations.

On Saturday, if you care about the planet and your children’s and grandchildren’s future, put the LNP last.
