Carbon Tax....Climate Changing

   Is this the making of a Tea party in Australia?

THE Gillard government has suffered a serious blow to its carbon tax sales pitch with the Productivity Commission saying it is not able to compare the burden on Australian industries with competitors overseas.
Labor commissioned a comparative study of the ''effective'' total price imposed by carbon taxes, regulations and subsidies in key economies to help make the case that Australia was not moving ahead of the rest of the world, and limit assistance to trade-exposed industries.
But the Productivity Commission chairman, Gary Banks, said such comparable measurement was ''highly problematic''.
The Coalition leader, Tony Abbott, addressed about 3000 angry demonstrators at a ''no carbon tax rally'' outside Parliament House.
