Better Ways to Spend Our Taxes

Sometimes Australians ask why the mining industry, with annual profits of $51 billion, gets $4 billion in subsidies from the government. And it's a good question.

Community group GetUp put together a graphic showing alternatives for that $4 billion. If spent on renewable energy it could build 1680 Megawatts of windpower each year.

That would definitely be a 'better way to spend our taxes'.
