"Australia puts a price on carbon"
 Jul 11, 2011,

  "The Australian Federal Government has announced a carbon tax of $23
   per tonne effective from July 1 next year.

   Designed to slash the nation's carbon emissions by 159 million tonnes
   a year, the tax will apply to Australia's top 500 polluters under
   a two-phase fixed and flexible scheme."

  "Australia's carbon tax was officially announced on Sunday by
   Prime Minister Julia Gillard, Deputy Prime Minister Wayne Swan and
   Minister for Climate Change and Energy Efficiency Greg Combet."
  "The long-term impact the tax will have on investments in Australian
   data centre infrastructure is uncertain, however researchers from
   analyst firm Gartner have claimed that the impending tax and
   Australia's deep reliance on taxable energy sources had prevented
   major cloud vendors from establishing Australian operations."

"Dirty energy keeps data centre builders at bay"

Why aren't cloud providers setting up shop in Australia?

  "Australia's 'dirty' energy sources and carbon tax debate could be
   deterring international cloud service providers from establishing
   on-shore data centres, according to Gartner analysts."
  "Ninety-two percent of Australia's energy was sourced from fossil
   fuels, Blosch found, reporting that this was "far from conducive
   to the development of a long-term green IT services sector"."
  "Microsoft served Australian users of its Azure cloud platform from
   data centres in Singapore and Hong Kong; Amazon from Singapore and
   Japan; and from Singapore and the US.

   Blosch highlighted IBM's recent launch of a $61 million Auckland
   data centre for white-labelled cloud computing service providers,
   noting that New Zealand generated electricity from geothermal,
   wind, tidal and hydro sources.

"Tech companies on carbon tax shortlist"
 July 11th, 2011, ZDNet Australia

"We could tell you who the top 500 polluters are,
 but then we'd have to kill you"
 July 11, 2011,

  "THE Federal Government says about 500 companies will pay for the
   right to pollute - but can't reveal who they are to the public.

   Commercial privacy laws prevent the Government from naming companies
   that will pay for their carbon emissions under the scheme."
