Australia's Rudd says carbon scheme delayed to 2012

Australia's government will wait until the end of the Kyoto climate pact in 2012 before pushing ahead with a local carbon emissions trade scheme, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd said on Tuesday.

"That will provide the Australian government at the time with a better position to assess the level of global action on climate change," Rudd was quoted as telling journalists in Sydney, according to the Australian Associated Press.
