Does anybody know *exactly* HOW any new Carbon Tax would be spent?

For example, our last 4 electricity bills, for a very similar usage:

17/07/2010  $394
17/09/2010  $496
15/11/2010  $524
17/01/2011  $602

In other words, a large increase in costs already, without a new tax.

Another increase in electricity costs for us will not decrease usage.

So, aside from further discouraging electricity use, (which will not
happen for us, we're already very electricity use conscious) exactly
HOW would the Carbon Tax monies be spent? If it's just to discourage
usage, then bugger-off. But, if it will somehow wean our electricity
suppliers off from burning brown coal (unlikely?) then any tax is ok.

As yet no-one has explained to me HOW this money would help our green
housing planet. HOW would this extra $300 or so / year help Australia?
