It's not a carbon tax, it's the removal of a "subsidy"

ABC Lefty opinionista of no particular claim to fame Tim Dunlop on the allegedly right-wing-dominated media's carbon tax reporting:
Look at the way Labor’s plan to put a price on carbon is reported across the media. It is simply referred to as a “carbon tax” when an equally valid way of describing the act of putting a price on carbon - the government’s actual intent - would be to call it the removal of a subsidy for carbon-producing industries.
Dunlop really should elaborate on exactly how this imagined "subsidy" is paid to carbon-producing industries.

A price on carbon:

2B pencil $2
1000kg coal $200
1ct diamond ring $10000

Proof again (not that any was needed) that Lefties don't get economics.
