My colleage and the Leader of the Nationals in the Senate, Senator Barnaby Joyce, has launched a petition
on his website to stop the ETS.
The Senate is due to debate the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme Bills in the last sitting session of the year, which starts on November 16. It is not too late to stop this massive new tax. The petition reads -
To the Honourable President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled:
The petition of the undersigned shows that we object to Australia adopting an Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) and the Copenhagen Treaty as foreshadowed by the Rudd Government.
Your petitioners ask that the Senate reject the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme.
Please sign the petition and circulate it to your friends to sign as well.
