The drivers were awesome to be with.  Hard working drivers!!   It really stands out when the drivers jump in to help set up base camp, and tear it down.  Not to mention always having a fresh green tea for me just when I needed it every time.  They really were great and I’d ask for them anytime we get vehicles from you. Thanks!

Rusty, Bruce and the guys at King Kong were a crucial asset to my photoshoot.  They took a lot of stress off of my plate and came through when I needed them, allowing me to focus 100% on the production.  Without a doubt, King Kong is now my go-to for production vehicles and I do not hesitate to recommend them to my colleagues.  And, not only is Rusty the best and most helpful driver I have ever had the pleasure of working with, he is also awesome with a fog machine!

The Helios is a great motorhome. Not only is it energy efficient but it offers a large space for production to work in. The copy machine is great because you can wirelessly print and make color copies and send faxes. The satellite phones came in handy when we realized we didn’t have any cell service on location. We received several compliments throughout the shoot day. Crew walked into the motorhome in awe of such a beautiful space.

Australia enacts carbon-tax law

Australia introduces controversial carbon tax

Australia has introduced its highly controversial carbon tax, after years of bitter political wrangling.

The law forces about 300 of the worst-polluting firms to pay a A$23 (£15; $24) levy for every tonne of greenhouse gases they produce.

The government says the tax is needed to meet climate-change obligations of Australia – the highest emitter per-head in the developed world.

But the opposition calls it a “toxic tax” that will cost jobs.

The opposition also argues that the tax will raise the cost of living, promising to repeal the legislation if it wins the next election, due in 2013.

Environmentalists have broadly backed the scheme, but there have been large public protests against it.

‘Realistic way’

Australia’s mining firms, airlines, steel makers and energy firms are among those expected to be hardest hit by the the Clean Energy Act.

CARBON TAX

  • 300 companies affected
  • Agriculture, forestry and land are exempt
  • Market-based trading scheme kicks in from 2015
  • Target to cut 159m tonnes of CO2 by 2020

Domestic fuel bills are expected to rise as companies pass on the costs to consumers.

But the Labor government of Prime Minister Julia Gillard says it is the only realistic way of meeting Australia’s climate-change obligations.

It says the that low income earners will be compensated.

“People have already seen pension increases and family payment increases and this assistance to families around the country will continue,” Ms Gillard told Australia’s ABC.

“Businesses have got themselves ready for carbon pricing. New investments are being made.”

The government also hopes that the legislation will force innovation in renewable energy supplies, and free the country from its reliance on fossil fuels.

Australia currently accounts for 1.5% of the world’s emissions, but it is the developed world’s highest emitter per head of population thanks to its relatively small population.

The leader of the opposition, Tony Abbott, says the “toxic” tax is expensive and unnecessary.

He told his Liberal Party’s conference on Saturday that Australian could be “100% certain” that there would be no carbon tax if he got elected.

He added that the new tax “will raise every family’s cost of living, it will make every job less secure but it won’t help the environment”.

Australia’s initial price per tonne of carbon is much higher than other similar schemes – such as in the EU where the price is between $8.7 and $12.6 a tonne.
