My Imagining Australia coauthor David Madden has an opinion piece in today’s SMH, which may ruffle a few feathers. It begins:
Thirteen years after the Rio Earth Summit and more than seven years after the deal was struck, the Kyoto Protocol finally comes into force today. A legally binding agreement, Kyoto represents the first concrete international effort to address global warming.
But don’t start looking for that perfect beach house in Kiribati just yet. While it is an important achievement, Kyoto is not the answer to our global-warming woes.
