A new Morgan poll shows that for the first time, less than half of Australians — 46%, down 4% since November — approve of the government’s proposed CPRS.

An increasing number of Australians, 36% (up 5%) of Australians disapprove of the proposed legislation; although 5% (up 3%) say “it doesn’t go far enough”, 14% (up 3%) don’t understand the legislation and 4% (down 4%) can’t say.

    As an older citizen I’m in favour of strong policies to combat climate change. I’ve never been contacted by any political pollsters in the 42 yrs of voting. I’m most concerned by climate change, and want firm action taken to prevent a horrific future for my grandkids. I don’t think the Rudd Govt’s CPRS is strong enough – too many dollars and perks for the wealthy polluters who caused the damage in the first instance; there should be a firm policy against cutting down native forests, anywhere, and a fair dinkum determination for renewable energy sources – and I don’t include nuclear???

    I have not one zilch of respect or hope re Abbott’s rambling ‘born again greenie’ nonsense – in short, it’s only opportunistic bullshit! He’s as keen on protecting the environment as he was on that Medicare refund policy prior to the 2004 election – when he had to go back on his ‘set in concrete’ promises – didn’t even blink! The amount he kept only meant, that the well off could seek the highest charging professionals and the poor peoples’ taxes supplemented them. Arrogant prig!
    Why would an intelligent person take one scrap of notice of him?
    I just want him and his mates out of my face, and out of the parliament – that includes Minchin, Abetz etc!
