There would be global benefit in a larger proportion of the world's aluminium supply coming from these countries. I think the scenario some posters are concerned about is one where Al production gets pushed out of Australia to places like China which would import Australian coal to power the smelters.

Of course, a future with smaller cars, fewer cars and more bicycles per household, and better public transport would also be one with reduced global demand for Al.

Is Plebiscite a type of poison that kills all the common people? If so, I'm all in favour (snort).

No, that would be the carbon tax.

Are you suggesting the carbon tax is some kind of attack on the "common people"?

Good point! We should just make all the young and as yet unborn pay for the planet being fûcked by the baby boomers....

Wait, we already are. Crisis averted (phew).

Impressed this thread is still going :p

Based on what Gillard is saying, this is starting to sound like wealth redistribution is one of the main drivers. I wouldn't quite go that far, because i guess one of the tricky things with the proposed compensation is making sure that a pensioner in Cooma (with its higher heating costs in winter) is no worse off than one from say Brisbane.

Wouldnt be a major labour/green policy if it didn't...I dont get how they can say 9/10 will get compensation when they dont even have the price or what will actually be tax sorted yet...they are going to balls this up in a huge way....and everybody is going to loose out.
