Carbon cash pushed in Oz

276920_carbon_signs_3.jpgBusiness folk in Australia and the Pacific Rim are pushing governments to put a price on carbon.

It’s a few weeks old and we missed it, but the Associated Press has this:

“The business leaders are planning to suggest that the politicians gathered here for a summit of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation forum should attach a price to carbon emissions, said Mark Johnson, chairman of AGL Energy Ltd., an energy retailer, and head of a business advisory council to APEC leaders. It would be up to individual countries to adopt their own systems.

“Business is going to have to change its behavior in the way it uses energy and how it invests in new technology,” Johnson said Monday. “For that to happen, we need price signals” that would motivate companies to change their behavior.

“That is the essence of the climate change debate: to pollute it will cost you X,” he said”
