Australia not alone on carbon pricing: Combet - National News - National - General - Great Lakes Advocate
Climate Change Minister Greg Combet will today counter claims that Australia is acting alone on carbon pricing with an analysis that finds more than 50 jurisdictions will have emissions trading schemes in 2013. The schemes cover a combined population of about 850 million, according to the analysis by the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency. They include 30 countries linked under the European Union carbon scheme, regional systems covering 10 US states, including California, and seven pilot schemes in Chinese provinces and cities. Mr Combet said the schemes would cover an estimated 30 per cent of the global economy, showing Australia was joining "the vast majority of the world's industrialised economies in adopting a policy that reduces emissions in the most economically responsible way".
