Well, very good. So if we get a carbon tax, will the funds go towards the Solar Flagships program (which I'd never heard of previously)? I guess they have to be built in NSW and Queensland because they have larger concentrations of populations, but it would be great to see one or two built here in the West.

@ Cindy Siano of Perth, What? You are expecting tooooooo much! The West and North (Australia) are not in Canberra's radar, so the politicians dont know we do exist!

The locations have been announced.... but can you do the maths? Gillard has promised 90% of households will be reimbursed, and TEN PERCENT will go to the United Nations.... does not leave much left really for clean and green initiatives does it? Can't Trust Julia... she has said 100% of money raised by her carbon Tax will be used to help Australia: We as a nation are one of highest taxed in the world – but wait – there is more to come! The Australian Government has committed us to paying a ten percent additional levy /tithe to the United Nations. This is a self serving un-elected unofficial quasi Governmental Body, who have written their own charter and draw their finances from the nations around the world who have ‘signed on’. Now Australia is about to collect another new tax, of which 10% has been formally promised to the United Nations Green Fund.
