Australian gov't faces carbon tax backlash at poll

Agnes Lee, 52, an IT consultant, reads a paper while having a coffee in Sydney, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. The ruling Labor Party’s probable collapse in Australia’s next election is largely the consequence of its qualified success in the last one three years ago. To form the coalition she needed to stay in power, then-Prime Minister Julia Gillard reneged on a promise and agreed to place a carbon tax on major polluters. "The Labor government is all about themselves - the individual - rather than the whole party,” said Lee who plans to vote for the conservative coalition on Saturday. (AP Photo/Rick Rycroft)
