Letter: Carbon emission cut would spell the end

THE ALP/Greens are proposing to cut carbon emissions by 50% by 2030.

The findings of the 2013 Treasury & Department of Industry & Climate Change Modelling Report (commissioned by the ALP when in Government) made the following predictions if carbon emissions are cut by 40% to 60% by 2030.

$600 billion would be ripped out of Australian economic growth within the next 15 years; tens of thousands of job losses; the likely closure of all coal fired power stations; and power bills will rise dramatically.

Mr Shorten and his Greens' partners will create a monumental disaster for our country.

Yet he talks about putting people first when really he is putting Australians and our country last!

The standard of living for all Australians will fall & many will suffer.
