Climate change and politics

Always thought global warming was that- GLOBAL. Not just an Aussie problem but EVERYONE'S.

But according to the the Climate Change Commission (established by our Green Government to provide all Australians with an independent and reliable source of information about the science of climate change), they state that:
  •  Australia is the largest emitter per person of any country in the developed world.
  • Australia belongs to a group of 20 carbon heavyweights – 20 countries that contribute 75 per cent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Yea, right, f***** political mouthpiece, much like saying how well we did to win all those gold medals at the Olympics... (per capita that is).

I suppose they have to ensure they will have jobs for life. It is the most confusing topic I have ever read about. Someone wants to create a bit of scare mongering it seems to make themselves look important. Climate change exists but it is a global problem.

And I hope you have been watching the Paralympics - many gold medals and athletes that are exceedingly happy to win Silver wihout tears and tantrums too.

Kept hearing about how well we're doing until I looked at the medals table!
