Petition: Australians demand ratification of Kyoto Protocol! June 20, 2005 4:40 AM

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/525063229
Australians demand ratification of Kyoto Protocol!
We, the undersigned Australian citizens, demand immediate ratification of the Kyoto Protocol by the Australian Government.

Only two countries in the OECD have refused to join Kyoto, Australia and the United States. We, the undersigned, believe that in refusing to sign Kyoto, our Government is acting against the will of the people. Failure to sign Kyoto is a cowardly and irresponsible stance by our Government, and is unacceptable.

We demand immediate ratification of Kyoto!

Costello backs climate warnings April 20, 2006 9:34 PM

TREASURER Peter Costello has backed warnings by his British counterpart about the economic risks of ignoring environmental issues.

In Sydney today, Mr Costello said there was irrefutable evidence that the globe was getting warmer and there could be some impact on Australia's economy as a result.

"I'd make this point though, it's not enough just for the developed countries to address emissions.

"Even if Australia cut all of its emissions, the economic growth in China within about a year, as I understand it, would totally replace all of those emissions."
