We’ll buy and use a lot more glass in the future, but making it here may be harder and harder.
I was invited to speak at the annual industry conference, Ausfenex 2011, at the sustainability hub of Jupiters Casino. The set up was a 2-on-2 debate, ox-style (short-Oxford) on ‘whether the carbon tax would be good for the industry’. Five minutes each. Go crazy.
Our speakers, for the affirmative, went hard on facts, logic and the future. The negative went hard on rhetoric and fear: “every screw, every nail, every tile, every brick, every pane will be more expensive”. We got smashed.
