Australia becomes world’s first developed nation to repeal carbon laws

After almost a decade of heated political debate, Australia’s Conservative government repealed a much questioned carbon tax on the nation’s worst greenhouse gas polluters on Thursday.

The decision makes of Australia the world’s first developed nation to repeal carbon laws that put a price on greenhouse-gas emissions.

The Senate, News.com.au reports, voted 39 to 32 to axe the A$25 (US$$23.45) tax per metric tonne of carbon dioxide that was introduced by centre-left Labour government Prime Minister Julia Gillard in July 2012.
