It looks like the Carbon Tax was the number one issue

Indeed - This, from Anthony Watts in Watts Up With That:

Tony Abbot has won the Australian election in a landslide, and vows to abolish the carbon tax as a first order of business. Abbott has declared Australia is “once more open for business” in claiming victory in Saturday’s election....

Abbot says he will abolish the carbon tax. In an August 5th Herald Sun article: " If elected, the coalition on day one would suspend the CEFC (Clean Energy Finance Corporation) and prepare legislation to shut it down permanently...."

And in an update note from Australia: Tony Abbott, the man who once described climate change as crap , has won a landslide victory in the Australian election, an election which has seen substantial swings against Labor and the Greens.
