2014-07-11 10:32 | By Matthew Knott, Sydney Morning Herald, 11 July 2014 | The government is attempting to repeal the carbon tax introduced by the Gillard government in 2011. Labor and the Greens want to keep a price on carbon so the government needs the support of six of the eight crossbenchers in the Senate to scrap it. Luckily for the government, all the crossbenchers want to get rid of the carbon tax. Unluckily - at least for now - the Palmer United Party isn't going to make it easy.

2014-07-11 06:00 | After the Great Recession of 2009 and the recovery in 2010, North American tissue supply and demand have been well balanced, and from time to time, the business has been a seller's rather than a buyer's market. This was the case in the first nine months of 2012. Just before the first wave of new capacity started to come on stream, the US tissue market was very tight and independent converters were having problems procuring parent rolls for their converting plants. As a result, imports from...

2014-07-10 09:56 | By Patrick Anderson, Inside Indonesia, July-September 2014 | Despite having KPK launch large numbers of investigations into the oil palm and pulpwood plantation sectors, elected officials are still prepared to take the risks associated with receiving bribes in order to amass the funds necessary to run for office. The coalescence of interests between plantation companies and local political elites remains strong, so new cases seem to appear every day. While KPK’s efforts are laudable, reform of...

2014-07-10 09:36 | By Lenore Taylor and Daniel Hurst, The Guardian, 10 July 2014 | Tony Abbott’s “pledge in blood” to axe the carbon tax will have to wait until next week after the Senate processes descended into chaos and the Palmer United party senators voted against the carbon tax repeal.

2014-07-10 08:39 | By Megan Darby, RTCC, 9 July 2014 | Logging, burning and developing plantations in the Amazon rainforest is releasing 54 million tonnes of carbon a year, Brazilian and British scientists have found. The impact of wildfires, selective logging and the encroachment of pastures and plantations on the rainforest is harder to monitor than that of wholesale deforestation, they said. This study, published in the journal Global Change Biology, shows such degradation could account for up to 40% of the...
