At 10.00 am, the question, from Annie:
We are sick of your governments lies.The Carbon Tax is another lie. We are not allowed to say Carbon Tax. Why not ?
Why are you giving 10% of the Carbon Tax collected to the UN ?
Combet’s response @10.01 am:
Annie, this is incorrect – the Government is not giving any of the carbon price revenue to the UN. Every single cent raised by placing a price on pollution is being given to Aussie households, to support jobs in key industries, and to invest in clean energy.
This is a lie.
Australia announced its contribution of A$599 million in June 2010. Details of the package were jointly announced by the Hon. Greg Combet AM MP, Minister for Climate Change and Energy Efficiency, and the Hon. Kevin Rudd MP, Minister for Foreign Affairs, in Cancún, Mexico in late 2010.
Greg Combet is a liar.
Handcuff time for Greg Combet.
Kicking this lying fraud out at the next election is not enough!
UPDATE: Combet reponds @ 10.22 am:
Mark M, the figure you are pointing to is part of Australia’s overseas aid budget and does not come from the carbon price revenue.
The Gillard Government is party to the UN agreement, which Climate Change Minister Greg Combet entered into in December 2010 at a meeting in Cancun, Mexico.
Under this agreement approximately 10 per cent of the Carbon Tax revenues raised from developed nations will go into a Green Climate Fund.
A click on the official government website provided above states that it (The Aust. Govt.) reports to the “Secretariat of the UNFCCC. In addition, Australia has undertaken to provide update reports at each meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC throughout the fast-start finance period.”
The lies continue as GreenLaboUr treats voters like fools.
