I agree with today's Advertiser editorial that we do not need a people’s assembly to tell us what we already know, that the majority of Australian people are ready to pay for their carbon usage. We understand that this is the right thing to do.
The argument that we should not do it because the Americans can’t get it through their legislature is a complete and utter furphy . If we were to take ourselves back two hundred years and say because the American still have slaves so should we then it rather exposes the shallowness of such an argument. There is nothing wrong, and a whole lot right with Australia leading the way.
