Reduce Greenhouse gas emissions
Australia's greenhouse gas emissions have increased 16.9% in the past decade. The year 2000 saw the highest annual increase in emissions since 1990. It now seems nearly impossible for Australia to reach its Kyoto targets.
Already there is evidence of widespread coral bleaching and unless there is urgent action, we face losing large areas of the Great Barrier Reef within the next 40 years.
To the Honorable Speaker and the Members of the House of Representatives assembled in Parliament: We the undersigned petition that the House take action to ensure that Australia meets the "Kyoto" targets for greenhouse gas emissions.
