Carbon Tax

In February 2011 Prime Minister Julia Gillard announced the government’s plan for introducing a pricing mechanism for carbon. The plan, which was supported by the Greens and the independents Tony Windsor and Rob Oakeshott, involved establishing a fixed price for carbon for a period of three to five years before moving to an emissions trading scheme. The Leader of the Opposition, Tony Abbott, condemned the Prime Minister for breaking her election promise not to introduce a carbon tax.
