  2. Carbon tax - RN Australia Talks - 11 July 2011

    About 500 heavy polluting companies will pay a $23 per tonne carbon price from July 1 next year, under a plan unveiled by Prime Minister Julia Gillard. Affected businesses and workers will be helped, with $9.2 billion worth of assistance over three years. Low income households will also be compensated with a rise in the tax free threshold, from $6,000 to $18,000, and up to $338 per year extra for single pensioners. But will be compensation be enough and will the carbon price be effective in cutting Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions?

  7. Climate economist: power price rises cut consumption - Radio National Breakfast - 11 April 2011

    A visiting British expert on the economics of climate change, Michael Grubb, argues that countries with higher electricity prices generally use proportionally less energy. Professor Grubb also says that after six years of emissions trading, the energy sector in Britain is complaining about ‘uncertainty’ when it comes to pricing carbon. That’s why the Conservative prime minister, David Cameron, is proposing to introduce a carbon tax later this year.
