Re: Australian "Climate Change" Minister says that dirty power plant shutdown was not because of carbon tax
the carbon tax has only been around for a few days.

it's fucking RIDICULOUS to suggest it's been shut down cuz of the carbon tax..Duh!!!!!!!!!!

So after how many days will it be sensible to say that a dirty power plant was shut down because of the carbon tax? It's not as ridiculous as the Minister seems to think.

If the owners of the plant take into account that they will have to pay lots of money in carbon tax if they keep the plant running, then doesn't it make sense to close it down soon after the introduction of the carbon tax? Even if the tax has only been there for a couple of days?

Isn't the idea of a carbon tax to shut down dirty power plants? Why are they saying it's ridiculous? How long will the government keep saying the carbon tax will have no effect?

They didn't close it until the carbon tax started. If they operate the plant under the carbon tax, they would have to pay $100 million per year in carbon tax.

Can you understand that adding $100 million per year of extra taxes could make the plant much less useful than it was before? Before they could have turned it on if they really needed some more electricity. Now they know they won't do that because due to the carbon tax, the electricity would cost far too much.

The government says that the carbon tax is SUPPOSED to have this effect, of making power plants that emit lots of carbon dioxide shut down. The owners of the plant said that the carbon tax was the last straw, and that's why they shut it down now.

But strangely, the government doesn't want to claim this early victory in their "War On Carbon". Instead they pretend that adding $100 million per year of taxes to this power plant had nothing to do with it.

That's the part that the government doesn't talk about. There is no alternative. Basically people will use the same amount of electricity, generated in the same way, emitting the same amount of carbon dioxide. But they will pay more for the same thing due to carbon tax.
