Letter to MPCCC - Please explain #2

Letter sent to the Multi-Party Climate Change Committee. (How come two parties and two independents are called Multi-Parties - Please explain? Multi means many...)

Dear Committee Members,

The latest satellite data from University of Alabama, Huntsville and Dr Roy Spencer (LINK) and graph by Anthony Watts (see below)
The global temperature has fallen .653°C (from +0.554 in March 2010 to -0.099 in March 2011) in just one year. That’s a magnitude nearly equivalent to the agreed upon global warming signal agreed upon by the IPCC. It is quite a sharp drop.

I have a generic reply to a previous email (LINK) that did not address any of the questions that I asked. I will ask another question.

Why do you continue to say carbon price when you actually mean a carbon dioxide tax?

In your generic reply, you say: "An initial fixed carbon price will provide businesses with a stable and predictable platform..." Before the last election, the Prime Minister promised that: "There will be no carbon tax..." The opposition also promised no carbon tax. The Prime Minister betrayed the electorate,  Mr Oakeshott and Mr Windsor. If you backed the Labor party for the promises, why did you still back them when they broke those promises?

As you can see from the second graph attached, atmospheric CO2 has been up to twenty times higher than present.

Can you please address my questions.

This last graph shows that CO2, for millions of years, has been above today's levels.
