The continuing climate change debate

It continues, the climate change debate and while it does we are moving ever closer to not being able to sort out the major problems we are creating.  The world has already reached a dangerous tipping point for the health of its climate and environment. Emissions need to peak by 2015 and then drop rapidly in order to make any substantial difference to the environmental impact caused by climate change. Federal, state and local governments in Australia are aware that energy emissions are increasing and that there is a need to make the transition to renewable energy. A number of measures to help reduce emissions have been put in place but there is still no agreement on implementing a national approach. By all means, let us keep questioning why things are done the way they are, but lets now start to act - before its too late:):)
