Climate change sceptics might want to check out the latest Academy of Science report for a simple question and answer style outline of what we know about our changing climate. www.science.org.au/policy/climatechange2010.html

“Climate change, due to the rise of CO2 and other greenhouse gases, is real, measureable and dangerous. Urgent action is required to arrest potentially devastating impacts,” said Lynn MacLaren, Greens MLC.

“Australia’s political leaders keep their heads in the sand by neglecting to take action even as 260km2 of ice broke off Greenland.”

“Our State Government refuses to measure WA’s emissions, implements a weak feed-in tariff, neglects large scale investment in renewable energy and continues to prop up the coal industry,” added Ms MacLaren.
