Fecking government.. I am 22 now, and buy the time Im ready to buy a home (~4-5 years min) they will have phased out the grants..
As I am pretty young Im going to be paying more GST than pretty much anyone else.. fecking suxs..
Then again I might crack a job overseas, that would be great, then I don't have to pay back my ~$50,000 hecs debt, get better pay, better conditions, knowing sydneys housing prices, I will most likely get cheaper housing as well.. come back after Ive made my million..
Government here isn't really interested in increasing efficeny or lowering green house emissions. I doubt they would ever fund such a thing. look how long its taken to get the sulfur out of desiel and that really is basic stuff..
I don't know how the TS50 is going to improve emissions. Stroked windsors aren't particularly known for excellent emissions..
If the government wanted to cut emissions they could simply fix up the coal power plants, or make our roads better or discourage people from buying big 4wd's by making them essentially tax free....
Fixing up parramatta, Windsor and a few other roads would halve emissions over night..
