A statement by Viv Forbes,
Chairman of the Carbon Sense Coalition.
23rd March 2011
Twenty two diverse organisations representing thousands of Australians all over the country have signed a letter to Prime Minister Gillard opposing the carbon tax.
Mr Forbes from the Carbon Sense Coalition comments:
"This tax on carbon dioxide will have no effect whatsoever on global climate, little effect on the production of carbon dioxide but a large effect on the cost of living and job prospects for Australians. This is merely a wealth redistribution scheme where most of the wealth will be consumed on compliance, regulation, red tape, subsidies and price supports for the Climate Change Industry."

Many of these organisations are also supporting "No Carbon Tax Rallies" in various cities all over Australia today Wednesday 23rd March 2011.
