Australia Rejects Carbon Emission Laws

UK Telegraph Australia’s parliament has rejected laws to set up a sweeping carbon emissions trade scheme, scuttling a key policy of Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and setting a trigger for an early election.

The defeat by parliament’s upper house Senate ends Rudd’s hopes of taking his legislated climate commitments to next week’s global talks in Copenhagen, where world leaders will discuss new targets to curb greenhouse gas emissions.

The rejection gives a legal trigger to allow him to call an early election on climate change that could come in early 2010, and to then ram his laws through a special joint sitting of both houses of parliament if he is returned to power.
