Prior to this I discussed some issues with Australia with a lot of help from Ozboy and his blog and attempted to explain this so American’s could understand what is going on of course in said country.
But the story is not over. First things first, the story continues with the introduction of an official “climate bill” in Australia’s equivalent of the senate. The explanation can best be found here as to why it matters: http://libertygibbert.wordpress.com/2011/09/14/chutzpah-in-the-house/
To sum it up quickly, Julian of course campaigned and won the seat of prime minister by promising to never introduce a carbon tax and she for the reasons of keeping the job has introduced that same tax. Rather funny and the reasoning is that she is holding on by a twig to power and unless she does something like this to appease her supporters she could very quickly lose her position due to a vote of no confidence.
