Australia and global warming

I have long been disgusted by the attitude of our government and people to global warming. Howard's speech this week with his blinkered view that we can go on selling fossil fuels confirms my belief in his complete small mindedness and lack of any vision. Today's article by Elizabeth Farrelly in the Sydney Morning Herald confirms my view that Australians are burying their head in the sand and only interested in short term gain and to hell with the future.
We should be leading the world on new renewable energy technologies instead of wasting our time trying to improve fossil fuels and pushing for nuclear power plants with all their risks and apparently no real gain anyway.
