Huge job creating potential with carbon tax

Carbon tax ‘could create thousands of jobs’, ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation), By David Mark 28 Feb 2011, A new report says a price on carbon could create 34,000 new jobs in the renewable energy sector in regional Australia over the next two decades.
The report, by the Climate Institute, will be launched today by independent MP Tony Windsor, just days after he helped the Prime Minister announce plans for a price on carbon by July next year.

Last week, Mr Windsor would not commit to backing a tax, but he says he is keen to generate a discussion on renewable energy……..Climate Institute chief executive John Connor says a price on pollution coupled with the renewable energy target would lead to thousands of jobs in every state in the solar, wind, geothermal, hydro and natural gas industries.
