This link is to a petition urging the Prime Minister to delay the introduction of carbon tax legislation until after an election:

    The French have ditched their carbon tax because of popular revolt.

    That link didn’t work too well, so here’s a couple of pars from the story.

    ‘Chantal Jouanno, the environment secretary, said she was “devastated that eco-scepticism had prevailed”. France’s leading green groups wrote a joint letter to Mr Sarkozy saying they were “scandalised” by his decision, accusing him of tearing up a pledge to put climate change at the centre of his presidency.

    ‘Medef, France’s business lobby, said the demise of the carbon levy was a “relief”. The tax would have been €17 a tonne compared to around €100 in Sweden, but business feared that this would creep up over time.’
