Obama drops the C bomb

President Obama is no longer afraid to talk climate and, like the UK, has announced significant plans to tackle climate change. Meanwhile, Australia and the EU mull changes to their carbon pricing schemes.

Ahead of the Independence Day holiday this week, US and UK leaders set forward their plans of attack in the ongoing effort to curb the globe’s rising temperatures. And on the other side of the world, Kevin Rudd ousted Julia Gillard as Australian prime minister, leaving some observers to wonder whether he will speed up plans to link the nation’s carbon market with Europe.

It used to be a word that made some US politicians blush, but President Barack Obama does not seem to be afraid to say it anymore.
