    Following months of tense negotiation between the minority Labour Government and the Green and independent MPs, Australia's prime minister Julia Gillard yesterday revealed the 'Strong Growth, Low Pollution' report, which models how the country's economy can continue to grow at the same time as reducing carbon pollution with a carbon price. The new tax, which will come into effect from July next year, will hit Australia's top 500 emitters with an AUD$23 per tonne carbon tax.

  • From King Coal to Carbon Tax: A Historical Perspective on the Energy and Climate-Change Debate
    Aug 9, 2011 - Paul Sabin -

    Current climate and energy policy debates in the United States rarely involve historians. If you search the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's 2007 synthesis report, you will not find the words history or historical. Even so, history pervades climate and energy policy discussions. History guides policy choices, inspires proposals for action, and structures institutional development.
