Carbon tax affecting the Australian economy

Since the introduction of a carbon tax, Australians have been divided about whether the tax is good or bad for the economy.

Protesters in Melbourne recently called for the carbon tax to be lifted, while Australia’s Opposition Leader Tony Abbott says he’ll “repeal it in blood“.

The Greens, who supported the tax, say it’s necessary for Australia to take action on the issue, because of the high rate of per capita emissions in the country.
