Bob Brown condemns Mr Rudd
Bob Brown has said today (15/12/08) that the Ruddudd's carbon (dioxide) targets means the end of The Great Barrier and Kakadu. How does this line up with the fact that China is adding more CO2 "pollution" each week than Australia puts out in a year. Our "carbon footprint" is so insignificant that we could wipe out the whole population, close down every factory, stop all animals from exhaling and it would not make the slightest bit of difference. Co2 is only about 3% of greenhouse gasses and the anthropogenic part of that Co2 is also around 3% and Australia's contribution to that 3% of 3% is so small that you could not count the amount.
So, Mr Brown, how is it that, if we reduce our virtual zero anthropogenic Co2 by 5% it will not make a difference but if we reduce it by 25% we will save the Great Barrier Reef and Kakadu?
