A new legal avenue for pricing GHG emissions? To trade or to tax?
Deane, Felicity Jane (2011) A new legal avenue for pricing GHG emissions? To trade or to tax? Environmental and Planning Law Journal, 28, pp. 111-133.
In a September 2010 media release the Prime Minister of Australia presented the terms of reference for the newly established Multi-Party Climate Change Committee. Although the Committee is charged with considering climate change mitigation measures in general, specifically the Committee must consider an appropriate mechanism for the establishment of a carbon price. The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of the mechanisms to be considered by the Climate Change Committee, including the use of emissions trading and carbon levies in other jurisdictions. This article argues that for any effective investigation of a carbon price for Australia to occur, a thorough knowledge of other jurisdictions’ methods for carbon pricing is essential.
