BRISBANE BUSINESSES MEET TO DISCUSS CARBON TAX EFFECTS
A meeting to discuss the effects of the carbon tax on small business will be held in the Jagera Art Centre at 121 Cordelia St, South Brisbane, next Tuesday evening, January 21 between 7.00pm and 8.30pm.
Many local businesses have already noticed a large increase in expenses due to the introduction of the tax, however the QLD Government are warning people against blaming any price increases on the carbon tax in an effort to minimize negative press about the tax in the community.
Outspoken campaigner John Lester will MC the event and several local business owners who are feeling the effects of the new tax will also take the opportunity to speak. These include representatives from Wall Vision, a wall art and mural printing company who have recently seen a noticeable rise in utilities and manufacturing costs which have forced them to rethink their pricing strategy.
The owners of Unsurpassable a local Brisbane hair salon will also be taking the stage. They have noticed prices rising across their entire supply chain since the introduction of the tax, from the hair conditioners and shampoos they use in their salon to the Australian made hair curlers and salon furniture.
If you are a local business and would like to speak at the next Brisbane community meeting please get in touch with your local representative.
EVENTS/MEETINGS HOW THE CARBON TAX AFFECTS YOU
“How the Carbon Tax Affects You” to be held in the lower Sydney Town Hall next Wednesday evening, November 9 between 6.30pm and 8.00pm. Hosted by The City of Sydney Council.
The Federal Government has joined that global movement with a plan to introduce a price on carbon.
Adam Spencer will MC the event and the Lord Mayor of Sydney, Clover Moore MP, will give a welcome and keynote speech.
Guest speakers include The Hon Greg Combet AM MP, Minister for Climate Change and Energy Efficiency; The Hon Tanya Plibersek MP Federal Member for Sydney, Minister for Human Services and Social Inclusion; Geoffrey Cousins, Company Director & Writer; Andrew Petersen, CEO, Sustainable Business Australia Limited; Ross Gittins AM, Economics Editor, The Sydney Morning Herald.
You’ll be able to ask the experts the facts about the price on carbon.
With speakers such as Greg Combet and Tanya Plibersek, it’s sure to be a one sided affair, but attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions. A few of us will be attending in the hope of doing so.

Spectator Australia Debate
“We need a carbon tax to help combat global warming”
For an informed and substantial discussion, join Lord Nigel Lawson at the Spectator Australia debate on Wednesday, 3 August at Tattersalls Club, 181 Elizabeth Street, Sydney, between 6 pm and 8.30 pm.
Lord Lawson was not only Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s long-time Chancellor; he is also one of the world’s most distinguished economists, and has spent the past decade warning of the perils of decarbonising the economy.
Lord Lawson argues that government policies to replace relatively cheap carbon-based energy with substantially more expensive renewable energy are economic illiteracy of the worst order.
The NO TO A CARBON TAX team:
• Lord Nigel Lawson, former British Conservative chancellor and author of An Appeal to Reason
• Ian Plimer, geologist at University of Adelaide and author of Heaven & Earth
• Gary Johns, associate professor at the Australian Catholic University and former federal Labor minister
The YES TO A CARBON TAX team:
• John Hewson, chairman of GSA and former federal Liberal leader
• Benjamin McNeil, senior fellow at the Climate Change Research Centre at the University of New South Wales
• Mark Latham, Spectator Australia columnist and former federal Labor leader
