Labor and the carbon tax: will they or won’t they?

It looks to me as if profit and competition are the barriers to addressing climate change. If that is the case then only a democratic revolution of workers to run society to satisfy human need can address climate change. As the banners at some environmental demonstrations and eco-socialist conferences say ‘System Change, not Climate Change.’

The Greens’ renewable energy fantasies go up in smoke

The abandonment of the proposed floor price from the Australian ETS scheduled to start in 2015 is a political, not an environmental, decision. It means the Gillard government can say we are on track to be part of a global market in permits, although that market will do little or nothing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions if the price remains low. The neoliberal Greens have sold us yet another market dud.

The battlers’ buffer or the battlers’ bluffer?

So what is all this talk about a battler’s buffer for the carbon tax? Small details like the actual carbon price and the amount of the compensation could be weeks away. But the Gillard Government’s approach is pretty clear. The carbon tax won’t cost us anything. In fact in terms of money 3 million¬†Australians – […]

Greens: trust us, not Rudd

Imagine how a militant radical campaign for green jobs could ignite society and actually have a chance of winning. Put your faith in us, Greens, not Rudd.

The Minerals Council: mining bullshit

Employment in the mining industry will double over the next decade. Scaremongering about job losses is so the bosses can get even more money out of us.

Get Up – the facts on Rudd’s climate change retreat

Get Up has a very readable analysis of the Rudd Government’s complete capitulation to the big polluters and a laughable postponement of the start up date.

Real tax reform: a love letter to Ken Henry

We should look at taxation through the eyes of the working class. Tax labour lightly and capital heavily.

An early election

When Labor votes in the House of Representatives against the Senate amended Fair Work Bill, it is a clear sign there will be an early election. Unemployment is going to skyrocket over the next year (if not earlier) and Labor wants to do anything to¬†avoid voter anger over that. Given 3 month Constitutional requirements – […]

Follow the Maldives Kevin

The Maldives is going carbon neutral. Force Rudd, the Mister Magoo of climate change, to follow them and lead the developed world.

Emissions trading: a pollution and profits bonanza

Labor’s Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme is about profits for the polluters, not cutting greenhouse gas emissions, Liz Ross argues in the latest edition of Socialist Alternative. Rudd’s done it again! One more broken promise. Remember when Labor said they’d tear up WorkChoices – well we’ve got WorkChoices-not-so-lite instead and they kept all the “special” laws […]
