Newspaper Ad Campaign Assails Australia's Non-Policy On Climate
A group of academics and professionals concerned about climate change has taken out ads in major newspapers urging the Australian government to press for reduced greenhouse gas emissions. The advertising, funded by the Climate Institute, comes as the government prepares to announce new measures to tackle man-made climate change.

The ads include messages such as "Gas Emissions From Our Politicians Are Now At A Critical Level" and "It's Time The Government Broke The Drought". "An effective and credible response requires Australia's national greenhouse gas emissions go down, not up," the institute's chief executive Corin Millais said in a statement.

"The Australian government's current policy has already increased emissions by 10 per cent over the last decade and is set to increase them by a further 17 per cent by 2020."

The institute, chaired by former NSW premier Bob Carr, has released a five-point plan to reduce emissions, which it says is Australia's greatest challenge.

1. I saw this on BBC online today
Australia launches climate plans

Sounds just like commander kookoo banana's plans that 'technology' will save the day with no mention of conservation and efficiency.
