The evidence keeps stacking up.
No need to be concerned that Europe is imploding. America slumping. China slowing. Our housing bubble leaking. Our economy faltering. Our debt rising. And 1 in 3 Aussie parents starving.
It really is a great time to introduce the world’s highest priced, and only economy-wide carbon tax.
STARVATION NATION: Parents going hungry to feed their kids
PARENTS in the grip of rising living costs fear they can no longer afford to feed their families and are cutting back on the bare essentials just to survive.
In exclusive Daily Telegraph survey of more than 1000 Australians found one in three people had gone without food in the past 12 months simply to put food on the table for their children.
Seventy five per cent of families had to cut back on buying food or cut some items from their shopping lists altogether.
Staples such as meat, fruit and bread were among the most common items sacrificed.
More than 60 per cent of people said they worried at least some of the time about not having enough money to feed their family.

Ironically, a report in yesterday’s Sunday Telegraph found grocery prices were decreasing for the first time in a year, thanks in part to the supermarket price wars and improved supply of fresh produce.
But the savings have done little to offset the soaring cost of other major expenses such as household power and water.
Conveniently, those major household expenses just happen to be the primary targets for the banker-designed, Bob Brown-mandated carbon derivatives scam.
And since we already know that Treasury’s “modelling” is about as reliable as reading tea leaves or chicken entrails, there is one thing you can rest assured of in these increasingly uncertain economic times.
Those “major expenses” are set to go up.
Thanks Greens voters.
I hope you are as smugly pleased with yourselves over the mouth-watering prospect of many, many more starving Aussie “working families” as you must already be over the genocide of black people in the Third World for the sake of carbon credit schemes to further enrich “green” multinational corporations.
