Kyoto Ratified

Unless you've been living under a rock, you will already know Kevin Rudd has committed Australia to Kyoto. (more from WNN)
This is the first of many steps - not only for rationalising Australian emissions to a justifiable level in the context of global development, but also towards the education of many that Australian goals can not be reached without nuclear.

  1. Ratifying Kyoto will be largely symbolic unless the government passes legislation to give legal effect to the provisions of the treaty. Given that the Labor Government does not have a majority in the Senate, passing such legislation is by no means certain. There is no way Australia can make significant cuts in CO2 emissions while it continues to burn coal and natural gas to produce electricity. And you can't make an omlette without cracking eggs either.
