MERGED: Petrol exempt from carbon tax. Aviation included?

Just heard that petrol has been made exempt from the carbon tax. If this applies to aviation fuel then it's quite a relief to say the least. The question is... Does it apply to aviation?

Carbon tax won't apply to petrol price - PM

Of course not Fonz.

The scavengers will continue to rip the guts out of our industry.

Private Airports, Car Parks, Shops, Air No Services and million dollar profits.

"Julia Gillard says there will be no carbon tax on petrol under a government she leads..."

...and Bob Brown says - "...itís inevitable that petrol will indeed come under the Governmentís planned emissions trading schemes."

Don't believe a word of it. She'll tax it alright, but call it a levy or something instead.

Well I think it only applies to private users they way I read it not commercial use so I doubt AVTUR or AVGAS will be exempt.... Either way I only use 10-12 litres of fuel per week in my car so doesnt bother me.

Haha I know but you really think they will give a concession to private flying?.. the way GA and Aviation in general has been treated the last few decades?

Beware, Australia has been turned into a Euro socialist/nanny state by these idiots and it will not stop until the 'economic tank' runs dry like most of Europe including the UK..

It's lies, lies and more lies....

There was hardly a wimper when GST was introduced that included other tax on fuel, all you lot no doubt were outraged at that as well. Could you please link to posts of your outrage?

A carbon tax of $20 - 25 per tonne will mean an extra 4 - 5 CPL.
In the last 12 months the price I pay for avgas went up over 25 cpl.
Yes we'll pay, and we'll be happy to keep flying!

Some people still don't get it!

The Howard government went to an election with the GST as policy and was re-elected.

The GST at 10% replaced Sales Tax which varied from 7.5% up to 30%.

GST is a far more efficient taxation system than Sales Tax, the least of which is capturing a lot (but not all) of the black economy.

Gillard went to an election in 2010 sincerely promising not to introduce a carbon tax, but being held hostage by the Greens, reneged at the earliest opportunity.

So now ask yourself, do you think Gillard will give a toss about the aviation industry?

It is important that the western world stop polluting the atmosphere with CO2, or else our children will be wearing gas masks just to go about their daily tasks, as the acid rain pours down and destroys every living thing - what are you going to eat then.
Yes, well may you laugh but the laugh will be on the other side of your face as Sydney and Melbourne crash into the ocean as a 200 metre tidal surge strikes due to the ocean being too hot to be contained within the ocean boundaries and flows inland and drowns all the little babies, penguins and dingoes.
Be warned I say the end is nigh

Myself I'm embracing climate change and looking forward to a 10 metre sea level rise and ocean frontage, that'll learn the money loving capitalists who bought down the expensive end of the street...
