S. Korea Sees Carbon Legislation Possible After April Election

South Korea, the fastest-growing producer of greenhouse gases among rich nations, may approve a law on setting up emissions trading in 2015 after the April 11 general elections, a top climate policy official said.

“We believe the bill will be passed” as long as lawmakers schedule a vote after the elections, Young Soo Gil, chairman of the Presidential Committee on Green Growth, told reporters today in Seoul.
