Under the preference system, we at the NO CARBON TAX Climate Sceptics (NCTCS) had to do preference deals with other parties to improve our chances. If you agree with our party's preference distribution, the easiest way is to place 1 above the line (Or for your own below the line preference order see later in this post.)
Queensland: Group AE (see all parties preferenced at aec-election)
NSW: Group B (see all parties preferencesd at aec-election)
Vic: Group J (see all parties preferenced at aec-election)
Tas: Group Q (see all parties preferenced at aec-election)
SA: Group R (see all parties preferenced at aec-election)
WA: Group O (see all parties preferenced at aec-election)

As a guide, our friend, politically unaligned Viv Forbes, in a recent Carbon Sense Newletter (link) wrote:
Election Day – “Put every Labor/Green candidate last”.
Two facts stand out as guiding beacons in this election:
- It was Labor PM Kevin Rudd, supported by the Greens, who gleefully committed all Australians to the costly, unnecessary and now totally discredited Kyoto Agreement (Dec 2007). And it was Senator Penny Wong, a minister in both Rudd governments, who pushed her costly complex and now discredited Emissions Trading Scheme through the same parliament in 2009.
- It was Labor PM Julia Gillard leading a Labor/Green coalition in July 2011 who introduced the now discredited carbon tax.
Therefore the first rule for anyone supporting a return to Carbon Sense is this:
Put every Labor/Green Candidate last.
Three other facts are relevant:
- There is only one party in this election totally focussed on the abolition of the whole mess of laws, taxes, subsidies, mandates and grants supporting the whole global warming industry – the NO CARBON TAX Climate Sceptics Party. Leon Ashby leads that party and is leading their Senate Team in South Australia. Leon has a chance of winning a Senate Seat, so please vote for him in South Australia, and send his party some funds to print election posters. See: http://theclimatescepticsparty.blogspot.com.au/2013/08/the-best-chance-to-remove-greens-from.html
- The National Party, particularly Barnaby Joyce and Ron Boswell, have been effective and outspoken critics of most of the global warming tax agenda. Support them.
- The Liberal Party has a split personality. Dr Denis Jensen and several others are opposed to the carbon tax industry. But Malcolm Turnbull and Greg Hunt are climate alarmists and would probably be ministers in a new Coalition government. They and other Liberals support damaging, wasteful and unnecessary policies such as Renewable Energy Targets and Carbon Capture and Storage. This prevents us from an uncritical endorsement of the LNP. Do not vote for warmist Liberals – our Parliament would be better without them.
The Senate ballot paper will be daunting. The easy option is to follow the how-to-vote from the LNP and you will help them, warts and all. At least that should tip the carbon-taxing ALP/Green coalition out of office.
We do not recommend that option. Use the power of the preferential voting system to send a real message to Parliament. Look carefully at all parties and candidates on offer and rank them, starting with number 1, and numbering all squares. Take care – you must number every square for your vote to be valid. Even if your number 1 does not get elected, the votes that go their way will be noted, and your vote will flow onto your number 2, and so on until someone accumulates a winning margin. Your vote is never wasted and never goes to someone you detest.
We have not tried to investigate all candidates or all parties, especially as there are so many new parties. So when you start numbering, stick to those you know to be opposed to the silly war on carbon dioxide, the gas of life. Make sure you do NOT number any ALP/Green candidate before you number all the known climate sceptics AND the LNP. Put all Greens dead last. If none of the good minor candidates get enough votes or preferences to win, at least your vote will not accidentally help a Green to get elected.
Here is our rough ranking of parties whose climate policies we know something about:
1. OPPOSED TO THE CARBON TAX and THE EMISSIONS TRADING SCHEME and hostile to most of the wasteful climate industry bureaucracy:
NO CARBON TAX Climate Sceptics Party
LDP – Liberal Democratic Party
DLP – Democratic Labor Party
2. OPPOSED TO THE CARBON TAX and THE EMISSIONS TRADING SCHEME but supporting some other pet scheme that will benefit their supporters at our expense (like “Direct Action”):
3. NOT SURE of these, but probably hostile to at least some of the carbon tax climate agenda:
Katters Australia Party
Shooters and Fishers
Fishing and Lifestyle
4. PUT ALL THE REST LATER, in whatever order you like, unless you know that their policies on carbon are sensible. Make sure every Green candidate, every climate zealot and every global warming alarmist in every party is at the bottom of your numbered preference list and is sent to the wilderness.
Don’t waste time or energy arguing with dedicated greens or sending them material. They must all be replaced. Throw our Carbon Sense seeds in fertile fields, not in the barren desert.

Great New Senate Preference Allocating Aid
More advice from a friend:
Case Smit, Co-Founder of the Galileo Movement, has advised us of a great new aid for allocating your own preferences in the Senate.
I’ve just used the facility on https://www.clueyvoter.com/ to rank my personal preferences on the Senate paper; it works beautifully and I recommend that you broadcast this web site to everyone you think might like to put the NO CARBON TAX Climate Sceptics Party high up on the ballot.Thanks Case! I tried it and it works well. You can even adjust it, tweek it if you want.
Without this assistance, almost nobody would be game to through the ballot paper below the line.
