Carbon tax useless: Coast academic Local Gold Coast News | | Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia
AUSTRALIA could shut up shop and move all of its people to Antarctica and it would have little or no impact on climate change, says Griffith University economist Ross Guest.

"In terms of the world's carbon emissions, Australia contributes 1.5 per cent," Professor Guest said.

"So the carbon tax will have no effect on global warming.

"What Australia does makes almost no difference."
