Greens policy will save Australians $2 billion – Brown

Australian Greens Leader Bob Brown says that today’s Climate Institute
report shows the Greens’ policy of a carbon tax will save households and
businesses money as power costs soar, helped by federal government and
opposition inaction.

“The old parties’ inaction is locking in more expensive electricity
production which, this report says, means an extra $60 per year per
household by 2020. This does not factor in the much greater costs to the
economy of worsening climate change.”

“I strongly urge the Prime Minister and cabinet, at its meeting
tomorrow, to adopt the Greens’ carbon tax proposal. It will raise $10
billion per year to help further offset the impost of price increases,”
Senator Brown said.
