Australias carbon price legislation that is currently in place is an effective way of reducing carbon emissions. It has already reduced Australias emissions by 8.6%. Other countries are now following suite and are introducing similar ETS plans. Even China, for example, is in the process of trialling an ETS scheme.

Unfortunately the Abbott government is jeopardising Australias reputation as a leader in combating climate change by attempting to repeal the carbon tax and have also rejected the Commonwealth climate change relief fund. We call on all Australians to challenge the Abbott governments irresponsible attitude towards global warming.

Civil Society without the Grey of Politics: Amid our worlds ongoing man made conflicts and despite Hollywood films and the plethora of Media on what if fantasies around World ending events, Nuclear proliferation aside, Many observers and actors in and around the sciences have not diverted from this very sobering endeavour on the immediate big picture for our Home we care for and call Earth: After September 2013 as determined at the UNFCCC: Global warming denial can no longer be considered as a rational point of view: Much of Earths 7 Billion People, with 1.2 billion living in extreme poverty, are already suffering in part due to increased energy from Global Warming, amplifying what has historically been termed as the natural climate.

It is time for humanity, for all of us, to care beyond the current global trade Economy where importance is prioritised for maximum profit and in some societies centred only on human security disregarding other bio-diversity.
We must work to ensure that technological progress and population expansion doesnt reach its end where our earths natural environment breaches our Gods perfect tri-state equilibrium of ice
(includes snow)-water(includes fog,cloud)-vapour(includes steam) existing at the same time around our small world; if we dont act now: the Sahara Desert, not may, but will, eventually describe every populated place on our earth. Brett W. Keiller ZL3BWK.
