Captain Quirk is blaming the Carbon Tax for Brisbane City Council rate rises.... He has said: "rise could have been kept to 2.6 per cent, or $31.48 a year, if not for costs associated with the carbon tax, including landfill charges."
I am trying to work out how much Carbon Tax we will pay.
Brisbane City Council's NGER's data.
|Registered Corporation||Total scope 1 greenhouse gas emissions(t CO2-e)||Total scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions(t CO2-e)||Total energy consumption (GJ)|
|Brisbane City Council1||263,920||18,271||2,504,217|
So we are looking at:
|282,191 t CO2-e|
At $23 a tonne:
1: Brisbane City Council has voluntarily provided information to the Greenhouse Energy Data Office (GEDO) concerning GreenPower renewable energy purchases, voluntarily surrendered Renewable Energy Certificates or offset scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions totals. This information has been published on the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency website – www.climatechange.gov.au/reporting.
Councilor Victoria Newton (
@VictoriaNewton) directed my attention to information about capture of methane emissions from landfill: http://www.cleanenergyfuture.gov.au/emissions-from-landfill-facilities-2/ Apparently there is no charge in 2012/13 2 help deal with the changes...
