Vale the Carbon tax

Sinclair Davidson supports the repeal of the carbon tax and suggests that  “ Australia should fully commit to participating in a global solution to global warming – but until then, pursue our own interests” ( http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-07-17/davidson-goodbye-to-the-all-pain-no-gain-carbon-tax/5597614) . Do you agree? Or, are you more aligned with The First Dog on the Moon’s take on the death of the carbon tax?

antarticaI guess the key question is – What is Australia’s ‘own interest’ ? Should we be concerned with rising sea levels? Chaotic weather patterns? The demise of animal and plant species?
