The author reflects on the Australian government's illogical decisions as of August 2011 that have been forced on its people due to leverage from the Greens Party and anti-business politicians. The Carbon Tax Scheme which is to take effect on July 1, 2012 is described to be disadvantageous and counter-productive for the marine transport industry, as well as the over-implementation of Marine Protected Areas. The author suggests immediate action from Australian taxpayers to reverse the course.
