Surprise, surprise carbon price still too high

When polluters complained they were severely disadvantaged relative to Europe because we had a higher carbon permit price, apparently they didn't actually mean our carbon price should match that in Europe.

For months a range of major carbon emitters, and their lobby groups, have complained the carbon permit fixed price period and price floor would mean they would suffer major competitive disadvantage, because they would be forced to pay a higher carbon price than European companies.

So the government announces that they’ll drop the price floor and pretty much tie our own carbon price to that in Europe and guess what happens?

Bet you can’t guess.
