Now i dont deny clobal warming one bit. But i'm very glad they rejected this. As our average power bill would have went up an extra $400. Not to mention the price rises on just about everything else. I'm just glad the oppisition voted in Tony Abbot (Aka the mad monk aka captain catholic. As he is called in media circles.) As its new leader a day before this vote took place. As he was the force behind the senate rejecting the new tax.
