LIBERAL Party frontbenchers have begun to dump their support for carbon emissions trading after receiving party research showing voters are increasingly skittish about putting a price on carbon.
Despite Malcolm Turnbull’s ongoing attempts to broker a deal with Labor that would clear the way for Kevin Rudd’s proposed ETS, political hardheads among the Liberals are moving closer to the Nationals’ view that endorsing carbon trading is political poison.
In an online poll 79% of readers of The Australian do not understand how the proposed ETS will cut greenhouse gases and therein lies the problem.
Explain it to us Kevin, or Penny and tell us how your ETS will help Mother Earth hold back the tide of natural climate variations. If it’s going to cost me more to live I want to know I’m actually helping in a constructive way.
