Australia To Hit 127% Of 1990 Levels Of GHG Production By 2020
Australia will slightly overstep its greenhouse emissions target by 2012, but a worrying big rise is predicted within the following decade, a new report has found.

Australian Greenhouse Office's annual Tracking to the Kyoto Target report forecast that Australia's greenhouse gas emissions, by the year 2012, will be at 109 per cent of the 1990 emissions level.

This is slightly above the 108 per cent Kyoto Protocol target which last year's report found the country was on track to reach. The higher figure reflected stronger growth of emissions from electricity generation, the report said.

A worrying aspect for the country is that emissions for 2020 are projected to reach 127 per cent of the 1990 level, reflecting the impact of continuing growth in emissions in the energy sector.

3. So they will have no water, no crops, hot as hell and have huge
amounts of pollution in the air...not a very pretty picture, yet it's a view of things to come world wide.

Yet only cursory glances are given to it by other world governments.

This is why in a nut shell we are soooo fucked.
