LETTER: Keep my windfall to invest in R&D

Oct. 31, 2014, 9:30 p.m.

I’M unsure yet as to how I’m going to spend my windfall refund of $13.23 from Hunter Water in November (‘‘Carbon tax windfall’’ Herald 31/10).

Personally I would rather forego the piddling amount of cash in favour of supporting a carbon pricing scheme that promotes and encourages research and development into renewable energy sources and discourages large companies from relying on fossil fuels.

Is the ‘‘windfall’’ really enough  to convince people that Tony Abbott and his band of merry men have the best interests of our children’s future at heart? Trick or treat indeed.
