Bill Shorten intends to bring back the economy-crippling tax on vital-to-life carbon dioxide if he becomes Prime Minister at the next Australian Federal Election.
BILL Shorten has staked his prime ministerial ambitions on a pledge to resurrect carbon pricing, just hours after the unpopular carbon tax was finally put to the sword.

Next time you hear Alternate Prime Minister (APM) Shorten voice sentiments like this, remind him that, around the world, people are showing little concern for environment issues (Environment Issues at record Lows) as the AGW hoax unravels. The latest bit of ammo to aim at APM Shorten comes from Switzerland:
Swiss voters Sunday overwhelmingly rejected an initiative that would have scrapped the Alpine country’s value-added-tax system and replaced it with a carbon tax, a move that would have made gasoline, heating oil and other forms of power more expensive for consumers.
