ABSTRACT
The article discusses the debate on whether introducing carbon taxes is more effective in reducing greenhouse gas compared with the emissions trading scheme planned by Australia. Speaking at an environmental sustainability conference at Monash University in April 2009, Victorian governor David de Kretser argued that taxation of goods using energy from high emitting power stations would promote the use of renewable energy in high-polluting developing countries.
