Carbon Price Details

As i've alluded to over the past 2 days, Australia has just announced a price on carbon - to take effect July 1, 2012. Some of the details (if you didn't see monday's video) are:

- $23/tonne price for emitting carbon pollution
- Target now 80% pollution reduction by 2050
- $10 billion for renewable energy
- Help for vulnerable people
- Preventing any further coal-fired power stations

Oh, and sorry to international readers, but i'm quite focussed on Australia this week, as we eventually take steps towards real action.
